Why Detroit had to reverse course with Lashoff

08:19 AM ET 04.16 | On second thought, Wings defenseman Brian Lashoff will stay in Detroit, rather than go to Grand Rapids. Over the weekend, coach Mike Babcock said Lashoff would go to the minors for an opportunity to play rather than sit on the sidelines in Detroit. Turns out, that's not quite feasible. Once the NHL trade deadline passed April 3, teams were allowed only four transfers. The Wings used theirs up that day on Danny DeKeyser, Lashoff, Joakim Andersson and Gustav Nyquist, in order to make all four eligible for the AHL playoffs. Once that paperwork was signed, the Wings can only call a player on an emergency basis. So if they stuck Lashoff in the minors, they would need injuries to three Wings defensemen in order to bring Lashoff back up.

Either someone switched the Wings rebuild plan books or Holland decided to embrace the Edmonton Oilers model for success.

I would change the first four letters to something more appropriate. Something that starts with an "F"
