Red Wings-Lightning Matchup Will See Team’s Highest Priced Ticket This Month

The Detroit Red Wings enter March just one point out of second place in the Atlantic Division.  Currently 35-15-11 with 81 points, Detroit will need to continue improving their play throughout the remainder of the regular season to have a shot at snatching the Atlantic Division lead from the Montreal Canadiens, who currently sit at […]

Preview for Red Wings tickets this week

Red Wings spending most of pivotal February slate on the road

The Detroit Red Wings are playing some of the best hockey in the Eastern Conference as of today. They are currently third in the conference, and have won nine of their last twelve contests. The 29-12-9 Wings’ squad holds the top power play unit in the NHL, as they are scoring on the man advantage […]

Leafs, Bruins & Jets highlight Red Wings top priced games of 2014-15

The Red Wings first season in the Eastern Conference, while not up to the team’s usual standards, was successful enough to continue the club’s streak of 23 consecutive playoff appearances – the longest current streak of any team in the big four professional sports leagues. So impressive is this feat, it’s more than double the […]

Red Wings on Facebook: The Dan Cleary Saga

It happened. Deep down, we all knew Cleary would be resigned to some extent, but I think we were hoping it would be a 2-way “thanks for the memories, have fun in GR” contract. Nope. So lets take a moment from our bleach-chugging, whiskey-pounding, homicidal rage-fest to take a peak at how the decision to […]

Teemu Pulkkinen Is Overrated

Teemu Pulkkinen is overrated. I’m going to tell you why. Prospects only have value because they are expected to develop and become NHL caliber players. A prospect has value for two reasons, they have a high ceiling or a high floor. A high ceiling means this player has a ton of potential and a high […]

Will Anthony Mantha Make the Detroit Red Wings Roster?

Anthony Mantha is the most talked about Red Wings prospect in over 10 years. He had a breakout year scoring 81 goals in as many games in the QMJHL and is going to turn pro next year. The only question for the fans: Will he be in the AHL or the NHL. There seems to […]

Sunday Musings: May 18th

A little while back, I wrote an article about Johan Franzen. The discussion that followed it was pretty interesting to me. The narrative on Franzen is pretty polarizing, he is either a) a player who is lazy and unmotivated, or b) a great value for his cap hit. I’m more interested in the second of […]

Why is Luke Glendening Valuable?

Hockey statistics favor offense, this is no surprise really, they are the easiest to quantify. Goals are what drives the game and they are the clearest and easiest events to track. However, how do you measure a player when they don’t score goals? If a player has a low offensive output does that automatically make […]

Gustav Nyquist’s Shooting Percentage

If you read other Red Wing blogs, you will see that one of the most prevalent narratives regarding the Wings is that Gustav Nyquist was an unsustainable flash in the pan and only had good stats because of an unsustainably good shooting percentage. He shot 18% this year. To place that in context, the league […]

Sunday Musings

The Legwand trade has been pretty much torn apart by everyone. The Wings gave up Eaves, what ended up being a 2nd round pick, and Calle Jarnkrok the team’s top center prospect. After the trade, Holland had said publicly that they didn’t feel Jarnkrok was going to be anything more than a bottom 6 center. […]

I’ll Admit It, I Was Wrong

I’m stupid. You’re smart. I was wrong. You were right. You’re the best. I’m the worst. You’re very good-looking. I’m not attractive. –Happy Gilmore/Twig Last year I wrote that it was time to fire Mike Babcock. The Wings had a good team, but I felt that they were underachieving. Nyquist getting few minutes while Bertuzzi […]

Johan Franzen: Do We Have a Problem

Johan Franzen was a force in the 2008-2010 playoffs, putting up 59 points n 57 games. For three years, he was a guy you could count on to come up and produce big points when the games really mattered. Since that 2010 playoffs, he has 10 points in 31 games. This is just simply not […]

Vote Nyquist for Play of the Year

Because if you don’t, Patrick Kane wins, and that means we all lose. TSN is having a showdown bracket for its play of the year and today our newest Swede, Gustav is up with his amazing play against Tampa where he survived a mugging and kept on chugging. As TSN put it: The young Swede […]
