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.

I've seen Kent Huskins play before; he's like a poor man's Brad Stuart, but a lot more physical and blocks a ton of shots.

Wings fans being cynical, but Huskins shut down the Wings with both Anaheim and San Jose. He's a good player.
