Wouldn't it be great to have a guy like Vincent Levacalier on the team? What an upgrade he'd be over Filppula!
NHL Free agency is just days away, so it’s time to prepare yourselves for disappointment. That’s not to say Ken Holland won’t have a good summer or that the Wings won’t be able to fill all of our perceived holes. When I say to prepare yourself for disappointment, I mean someone is going to get […]
The NHL Draft is now behind us and the Red Wings selected 8 players. They took 6 forwards and 2 defensemen. After the jump we’ll take a look at each pick and mention some of the most interesting transactions of the day. The aforementioned jump: The Wings traded their 18th overall pick to the Sharks […]
The draft and free agency are just days away, and with the cap coming down mixed in with teams being able to buyout as many as 2 players starting today things are heating up quick. News broke about an hour ago that the Lightning will buy out former 1st overall pick and captain Vinny Lecavalier. […]
Becoming the next Jimmy Howard: What does it take to be a Good Goalie? Although the Detroit Red Wings lost against the Chicago Blackhawks in game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals, it is still an undeniable fact that every Red Wings game is something to watch out for. For the fans of the perennial […]
I’m late to the party, but wanted to write about the Griffins’ Calder Cup championship win. First of all, I’m glad they were able to finish the job. Syracuse is a great team and being up 3-0 was a bit unexpected as far as I’m concerned. How does that BS line go? ‘If you had […]
The question of whether or not Pavel Datsyuk would head to Russia after playing the final year of his contract has been answered by
A lot has happened since the last time I posted something. I know I said that we’d keep you up to speed, then pretty much disappeared. Oops. Won’t happen again. Until it does. Updates after the jump: If you haven’t been paying attention, the Griffins have a 3-2 series lead on the Syracuse Crunch. That’s […]
Here’s a bit from our NOHS mailbag, in which we get sacks and sacks of letters. This one comes to us from a reader in our Desert Contingent here in Arizona, and it regards the issue of our self-proclaimed rivals in the Phoenix Coyotes and, at a larger issue, Detroit’s move to the ranks of […]
Now that the offseason is here, let’s take a look at whose contract is up and who needs to be bought out. This will be an interesting summer, to say the least. We’ve got a superstar to keep, the cap is going down, a bunch of UFAs, RFAs and some possible buyouts. The UFA market […]
The kids are all right. This was the first time since I can remember…there was not ONE mention of the Red Wings' age being a hindrance to their play-off performance. I take that back…they were actually talking about the YOUTH of the organ-i-zation…when was the last time THAT happened? There's a lot of reasons to […]
Obviously – this isn't the kind of thing I'd like to be writing about here in the early parts of June. But at least the Red Wings gave us great hockey almost all the way through May. …Yeah I know it wasn't ALWAYS great hockey. But at least we have a team that you can […]
It wasn't the ending we deserved, but it was the one we needed right now. Losing is the greatest teacher in hockey. If you think this hurts for you, I promise you Brendan Smith and Gustav Nyquist are dying inside. They, along with the rest of the kids on this team, will come back in […]
Simple. Shoot high and it's a goal. Especially glove hand. If you haven't, check out Josh Howard's post below. LGRW.
Say dang… that is one handsome Captain. Tell me this team was supposed to be here… If you say they are, you're lying. We've had an amazing season and it could end tonight to a "complete team" as some say. If we're going down, it'll be with class. We have nothing to be ashamed […]
