Nightmare on Helm Street:
So Detroit’s new D man is Kent Huskins. If you’re like me, you’ve heard of Kent Huskins but couldn’t tell you which sport he even played let alone a fair scouting report on the fellow. If I was a respectable NHL reporter, I’d find out what a NHL scout has to say about him and analyize his statitics before writing a scouting report on him. However, since I’m not, I’m going to see what a quick Google search and Twitter has to say. You know, the right way. Starting with the Hockey News’ bio:
ASSETS: Plays a safe brand of hockey that keeps the mistakes to a minimum. Is very dependable and will play through injuries.
FLAWS: Lacks the overall skills to contribute on offense consistently. Does not use his good size nearly enough. Is injured a lot. (!?!?!?!?)
CAREER POTENTIAL: Depth defenseman.
Great, so we can expect one game out of him before he goes down too.

If you're not a fan of the St. Louis Blues, or if you're not a hockey fan that pours over each and every NHL roster, you might not have heard of Vladimir Tarasenko until after he scored two beautiful goals in his first NHL game. In fact, if you weren't able to catch up on your NHL highlights, you still might be in the dark about this talented young Russian.
Update: Kent Huskins is the mystery D-Man.
Losing Colio yesterday leaves Detroit down to five defensemen and puts Kenny Holland on notice. Well, according to the Free Press, he’s been busy:
Depleted on defense less than one week into the season, the Detroit Red Wings are bringing in help from the outside.
