Hey Babcock – Need Goals? Here You Go…

Right now, it's clear things aren't click yet for Detroit.  Weiss was -4 last night, Alfie was -3.  What can be done?  Khan(!) gives Babbles some obvious suggestions.  Options for Babcock include inserting one or both of his healthy spare forwards, Tomas Tatar and Jordin Tootoo. Now we all know Tootoo isn't going to do […]

Coyotes vs Red Wings Recap: 10.10.13

Wings faced an angry Coyotes team tonight and fell 4-2. Faceoffs. That’s really what it came down to. Detroit couldn’t setup because they didn’t start with the puck enough and Phoenix was able to carry the play because they kept winning faceoffs. More after the jump:  A lot of people are down on the powerplay […]


Detroit Welcomes Troubled Youngsters from Phoenix

Tonight the Detroit Red Wings, in all their glory and splendor, host the dogs from the desert that boast one of the biggest stories of the offseason. For us, it has been quite the exhausting journey. Much like the neighbor kid who grows into a huge, belligerent drunk a-hole, then moves back into his mother’s […]

Red Wings vs Hurricanes Recap 10.4.2013

Close call tonight, but the Red Wings came out on top of the Hurricanes 3-2 in OT. This game didn’t have a whole lot of good scoring chances by either team and most of the goals came off of broken plays. Nice to be 2-0 right now, though, so we’ll take the goals any way […]

hockey is on

Sabres vs Red Wings 10.2.13

Pretty solid win by the good guys tonight. Not a ton of goals, but they scored enough and that's what matters. The Wings did a lot of things right tonight and got the result they deserved. More after the jump: I know hockey is back because I don't seem to care that my wife wants […]


Season Puck Drop Gameday Movie Poster

Life in the East starts tonight against our longtime rivals (well if you're NBC at least). But I don't care about that.  All I care about is that Detroit Red Wings hockey is back. And what does that mean for NOHS?  It means that we're going to give you what you want, a game day […]

The Wings Are Back and So Are We – With 2013-14 Predictions!

Well look at this, the blog isn’t dead. Nope!  Like the Namesake, NOHS has simply been on LTIR over the summer. Jobs, weddings, houses, and life got in the way for us, plus we were pretty burned out from the season before and the lockout in general. We needed the time off, plus, really, what […]

Wings Trio Invited to US Camp

As we wait for more UFA news to trickle in…I thought it would be a good idea to keep you abreast of the US National Team developments. But only because we have three players from the Detroit Red Wings organ-i-zation that have received invites to the camp. 1 Forward 1 Defenseman 1 Goalies I would […]

Datsyuk Being Datsyuk

Puck Daddy seems to be a love/hate relationship with Wings fans.  But we can agree, the best thing about Puck Daddy is the awesome Pavel interviews they get and the one today is no exception.  Here's a few highlights showing our favorite Russian at this best:  Henrik Zetterberg was named team captain this season. How […]


Smiles from The Namesake

So we've hit a bit of a lull in the Free Agent Market news.  So I thought today would be a good day to share a bit of "feel good" news. Let me start by asking a question – what would the Chicago series have looked like if #43 in the Winged Wheel would have […]

Honest Question

Are you happy with today? I was, but then a moment of reflecting upon our acquisitions and non-acquisitions made me see the light. We lost Damien Brunner and Valtteri Filppula to free agency. We gained Stephen Weiss-not-VVeiss and Daniel Alfredsson. So what? If we remove context, and someone says to me, seemingly out of the […]

Free Agent Frenzy Open Post

Well…it's time for the traditional Free Agent Open post.  I'll keep this thing running with all the updates as often as I can. We kick it off with a doozy… Ansar Khan ‏@AnsarKhanMLive 27s Damien Brunner and Craig Adams both hitting UFA market Ruh roh. Updated 12:10 PM: Helene St. James ‏@HeleneStJames #RedWings' negotiations with […]

Seeya Carlo – Colaiacovo Is Gone

Well that didn't last long.  Per the Free Press:  Vincent Lecavalier will not be joining the Detroit Red Wings, neither will David Clarkson nor Nathan Horton. Stephen Weiss, on the other hand, could be wearing a Wings sweater next season. And defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo will be bought out by the team. Poor guy barely gets […]
