Octopi Hockeytown – #12 – 7/17/14

This week on Octopi Hockeytown, Austin Goodman once again dives into offseason conversation. The show will hit all the big topics.Why did the Red Wings resign Kyle Quincey and Daniel Cleary? Why do players not want to come to Detroit anymore? Goodman discusses his theory on the Red Wings’ moves and the situation in the front office as well as behind the bench.

After the first segment of the show, Goodman takes a turn into offseason training. Development camp was held from July 4-8 in Traverse City, Mich. Anthony Mantha and Dylan Larkin, the Red Wings’ past two first round draft picks led the camp with leadership, development and a willingness to do whatever it takes to hit the Wings ice at the Joe. Goodman discusses camp and all of the prospects that have made a statement thus far.

In this last segment of the show, Octopi brings in a discussion from last week: what are the Red Wings going to do for the remainder of free agency? The show also touches on potential trade options, the influx of forwards that could make for good trades and a potential trade of buyout forward, Jordin Tootoo.
