OctoPulse podcast: Should Wings trade Zadina at deadline?; Paul Woods interview

The Detroit News


Ted Kulfan takes a look at the Red Wings' historic 10-7 loss against the Maple Leafs and the team radio analyst Paul Woods is the guest on this week's podcast.

Woods talks about the Wings-Leafs' highest-scoring game in the NHL in 11 years, Moritz Seider's runaway Calder Trophy candidacy, Lucas Raymond's mature-beyond-his-years game, Steve Yzerman's aggressive approach before the trade deadline and Jeff Blashill's probability of returning as Wings coach next year.

For Filip Zadina's trade value, go to the 27:20 mark of the podcast.

Red Wings right wing Filip Zadina could be the next first-rounder to be dealt at the deadline. First-rounder Anthony Mantha was traded at the trade deadline last year.

Here are the highlights from episode 67 of OctoPulse, Taking the Pulse of the Red Wings' rebuild now in Year 3 of Yzerman's regime.
