Martin Walti on Twitter sent me toward an article from the Die Nordwestschweiz Zeitung's Marcel Kuchta regarding one Damien Brunner. Kuchta exchanged emails with herr Brunner's agent, Neil Sheehy, and Sheehy says that his client remains committed to signing an NHL deal, and Sheehy says that he understands that he and Brunner will have to wait to land their expected $3+ million payday. What follows is translated German: "There's a lot of speculation regarding Damien because he hasn't found a new employer. People who believe that he hasn't received an offer because he wants too much money have no idea [what's going on]. Money was and is not the priority for him. He wants to play where he has the best opportunity. In that sense, nothing's changed," explains the Canadian [agent].

It’s a little clunky, but here’s Mike Babcock’s interview on 105.1 FM

I tried recording Red Wings coach Mike Babcock's interview on Detroit Sports 105.1 FM, and it came out a little clunky (you can hear Tweetdeck updating and a Skype message coming in) as this is the first time I've ever recorded anything on my computer, but I snagged the vast majority of the interview (Babcock started the interview being asked about the Tigers' management...

Wings Prepared To Go To Camp With What They Have

Ansar Khan of Mlive had a chat with Ken Holland today... Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland made a concerted effort to clear some roster spots and shed salary by making a trade this off-season, but had no luck.

On shifting blame and the Senators and Red Wings’ ‘odds’

The "Why did Daniel Alfredsson leave Ottawa for Detroit?" blame game keeps shifting. First, we were told that Alfredsson was presented with a "blank check" but chose to leave anyway.

Travis Yost: Alfredsson Fires Back

The summer of contradictions in the Ottawa Senators organization following the loss of captain Daniel Alfredsson to the Detroit Red Wings has been as lengthy as it has been bizarre.
