"When you go up and down the lineup — and I’m looking at it now — you’ve got tough decisions to make on a daily basis," Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. "Overall, Ryan knows what he needs to do to play better, but it’s not like he’s played poorly. It’s a numbers game right now, too. I’ve had plenty of talks with Ryan. I talked to him down in Tampa. … He realizes what he needs to do. I feel like I have a really good relationship with Ryan and when he gets back in there …" Capuano didn't complete that sentence.

    Wings assistant GM Ryan Martin is impressed by the progress Martin Frk has made.

He spent some time in the ECHL over the previous two seasons and it helped him improve his game. "Marty is a rink rat, wants to get better at his craft," Martin said.

In 2015-16 there was no trip to the ECHL and Frk picked up 27 goals, with 44 points, in 67 games. He won't be waiver-exempt, so the Wings will have to decide what to do with him. Today, 4:45 am
