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 […]

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 […]

Wings Ink Cleary to 3 Year Extension

Breaking news out of Hockeytown today. Despite what some fans would want, Ken Holland and the rest of the Red Wings’ management has decided to sign Dan Cleary to a 3 year contract extension. As per team policy, the financial details have not been disclosed at this time, though it is expected to carry a […]

Red Wings in the Olympics

The Red Wings are sending 10 players to Sochi, which ties them with Chicago and St. Louis for the most in the NHL. Yikes, the Central was badass. Still is, I hear. Anyways, after the jump you’ll find a rundown of who got in. Read More: Sweden: Zetterberg, Alfredsson, Franzen, Ericsson, Kronwall, and Gustavsson. No […]

Red Wings Weekend Recap 11.25.13

The Wings played twice this weekend and came away with two points. I’d say “I’ll take it” but I think they can do so much better. This post will mostly just touch on the important things that happened in both games. More after the jump: Pavel Datyuk’s status is still unknown after taking an unpunished […]


We told you so, we told you so, we told you so. We. Told. You. So. Nyquist isn’t the answer to all of our problems, but it’s amazing what a talented forward can do for a team that’s not scoring goals. Gustavsson wasn’t great, but he stopped enough to get the win. More after the […]

Nyquist is Back

Nyquist will play tonight. In an odd turn of events, his status on tonight’s lineup depended on Quincey being able to play. If Quincey had been hurt, Nyquist goes back down and a defenseman and probably Glendening come up. But your dreams have come true, Red Wings fans! Quincey (and Nyquist) can play! More after […]

Predators vs Red Wings Recap: 11.19.2013

Red Wings got shutout by an AHL goalie and barely even made him work. His best save of the night involved him bracing himself and turning away from a shot. Shutout by that guy. I’m not even going to look up his name as he’ll never again do anything worthwhile as long as he lives. […]

Red Wings on Facebook: The Losing Streak

To say that the last six games have been a bummer would be quite the understatement. I've not bothered to recap them because they're all the same: get a lead, blow a lead, lose in OT/SO. Red Wings fans are not taking this very well, but it turns out management isn't taking it too well, […]

Red Wings Recap 11.12.13

Wings fall in a shootout to the Jets, 3-2. They played well for the most part, but can’t win. More after the jump: Howard has to be better. He’s making too much money to have a goal per game that he regrets giving up. Defend him if you want, but he has been better before. […]

Starbucks vs Red Wings 11.7.13

Disgusting way to finish an otherwise really good game as the Wings fall to the Stars 4-3 in OT. More after the jump:  I’ll just get this out of the way now: I don’t fault Howard on the goals he let in, but he’s not a $5 million goalie right now. He just isn’t. Dallas […]

Red Wings vs Oilers Recap: 11.2.13

Sorry, late once again. The Red Wings had no trouble beating the Oilers last night and Mrazek picked up his first career shutout in the 5-0 win. More after the jump: The only line that isn’t absolutely buzzing for the Wings right now is the second line. They’re holding their own, don’t get me wrong, […]

Red Wings vs Flames Recap: 11.1.13

Detroit capitalized on their chances tonight and, thanks to a late push, were able to beat the Flames 4-3. I know the Wings were not getting many shots during the first 35 minutes, but I thought they played decent to that point. What was really hurting them early in the second was turnovers. Once they […]

Red Wings vs Canucks Recap: 10.30.13

Detroit played a great game overall and was rewarded with two points. They did a much better job of winning battles along the boards, they retrieved loose pucks, and created turnovers with their hard work. More after the jump: Sorry for the late post, but I’m not conditioned for these late games like I used […]

Senators vs Tire Fire Recap: 10.23.13

The Red Wings got destroyed. This is one of those games where you look at the box score and you might think it was a close game with a few bounces going Ottawa’s way, but no, the 6-1 score was deserved. Full in-depth analysis after the jump: First period: Second period: Third period: Next game […]
