Compete Hard - With a surplus of forwards, the Wings need to bring it every shift, especially the youngsters who want to earn a spot on the team.

Build Chemistry - Only two more games before the season starts; Detroit lines need to build some cohesiveness together.

Play as a Team - Trust your teammates, play together, and get ready for the season.
