The Detroit Red Wings have one of the most dynamic groups of forwards in the NHL. That group of forwards is being pushed to be better by the group of talented young players in their AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Regardless of whether you believe there will be hockey this season, the AHL is only a step down in talent as a whole.

The Red Wings farm team in the Griffins have reeled off six straight victories and seem to have finally found an answer in goal. Not only that, but Grand Rapids is scoring goals in bunches. Five of those last six wins have seen the Griffins score four goals or more.

This is excellent news for the future of the Red Wings, even if the NHL lockout persists, fans can rest assured that the team's future is in good hands.
