    Sarah:

    I enjoy your writing very much. I believe in one of your posts somewhere you asked what people would like to see in ter ms of mew ideas for stories. I have one for you that I have thought about a lot.

    Many young wings prospects are not ready for Grand Rapids, and some are sent to Toledo. I believe I read that five or six could be sent there this year. I think a story about how the Toledo coach and GM determine and handle playing time for Detroit and Chicago prospects together as they share the affiliation. How much input Wings and Hawks management have in that etc. The differences between junior, college, the ECHL, AHL etc.

    I plan on goint to both GR and Toledo games this year and would like to learn more about how they are run. Again, you do a great job!
