Found July 04, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:
Where do Holland & Co. go from here? It’s not often the Detroit Red Wings get left at the altar, but that is what happened today when defenseman Ryan Suter decided to join fellow American Zach Parise and take their talents to Minneapolis-St. Paul to play for the Minnesota Wild. In the end, criticism of the Red Wing management group should be minimal. Although they came up short, not sure...

Don’t Send Nash To Detrot

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch, Now, can you imagine Nash playing with Pavel Datsyuk or Henrik Zetterberg in Detroit, and drumming the Jackets six times a season? Imagine Red Wings fans scalping off half the house at Nationwide Arena, reveling in the carnage and throwing seafood on the ice? Imagine this going on for six or eight or a dozen years? Please, say it ain’t...

Red Wings evening news: And then things got weird

With the Red Wings reeling and re-setting after losing out on Ryan Suter and Zach Parise, and losing out on Matt Carle as well, what does the mainstream media in Detroit do? Dish doom and gloom, starting in “Tweet” form, from MLive’s Ansar Khan: No power for 27 hours and counting. This is a good time to make some predictions because I can always blame it on the heat later...

Paul here for George who is preparing for Traverse City.. from Ansar Khan of Mlive, By filing for salary arbitration on Thursday, defenseman Kyle Quincey expedited the process toward getting a new contract with the Detroit Red Wings.

Red Wings overnight report: faith is nothing if it cannot withstand doubt

The next couple of weeks aren’t going to be comfortable, fellow Red Wings fans, but I didn’t realize how incredibly difficult Wednesday’s news that the Red Wings lost out to the Minnesota Wild in terms of landing a player they desperately hoped to sign (Ryan Suter) and one they were at least particularly interested in (Zach Parise)... Until I left my computer screen, after...

The Red Wings step up their Twitter game

Oftentimes, when we see a tweet from our favorite sports team’s account, it’s bland at best. Informative and straight to the point with little or no personality behind it. The inability to engage readers at any level meant tweets were getting lost in a plethora of Twitter information. The Los Angeles Kings changed that philosophy this year by hilariously egging on opponents and...

Red Wings overnight report: on ‘due diligence’ and Tom Renney’s hiring

Red Wings GM Ken Holland suggested that his team would step back and reevaluate its plans after being spurned by Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, so I cannot deny that I was more than a bit surprised by all the hubbub about Rick Nash on Thursday. The media very understandably skewered Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson for demanding the sun, moon and stars for Nash’s services, but at the...
