Found June 26, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
This talk kind of scares me, because I remember Jiri Hudler's agent, Petr Svoboda, insisting that Hudler, "Loves Detroit" right before he bolted for Dynamo Moscow, but I'll take what I can get. After a week in which Damien Brunner pondered the lure of free agency while speaking to the Swiss media, Brunner's agent, Neil Sheehy, spoke with the Free Press's Helene St. James about Brunner's situation (which she assessed last Friday), and while cringe-worthy in the "I've heard this before" department, she delivers good news: Brunner’s agent, Neil Sheehy, told the Free Press on Tuesday that Brunner “will sign longer than one year.” Sheehy also emphasized that Brunner “loves Detroit.” Continue reading "Red Wings overnight report: Hope on the Brunner front and draft talk (a.k.a., “No one knows”)"

The right player won, from TSN: Detroit Red Wings super star, Pavel Datsyuk owned the 2013 TSN NHL Play of the Year Showdown Championship match, literally.

What offseason moves will the Red Wings make?

Now that the Stanley Cup has been awarded, a flurry of activity is expected to grip the NHL, culminating on July 5 the first day of unrestricted free agency.

Red Wings overnight report: Wings take aggressive player movement stance; on Griffins and ‘Gus’

I was hedging my bets when I suggested that the Red Wings might change the script on us and make multiple moves to move bodies and clear cap space on Sunday morning, but I still did a spit take when reading MLive's Ansar Khan and the Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness report that, starting at the draft this Sunday, the Wings will avail itself of its options to make trades, buy...

‘Terrible Ted’ remains the innovator of the Stanley Cup skate-around

As the Globe and Mail's Alan Maki notes, hockey fans can thank Red Wings legend Ted Lindsay for establishing the tradition of players taking twirls with the Stanley Cup: On night of April 23, 1950, Lindsay’s Detroit Red Wings and the visiting Rangers went into double overtime of Game 7 to decide the Stanley Cup champion. It was the first time in NHL history a Cup Final...

Red Wings overnight report: good news about Helm, meeting McDonnell and lots of paraphrasing Slovak

Okay, as we approach the draft on Sunday and what certainly sounds like a busy off-season in the making, things got kind of yell-y in the overnight report and mid-day news entries, so please try to remember that the foundation of spirited debate is understanding that not all of us are going to agree with divergent points of view, but that everyone is entitled to their opinion, even...

If you want to watch the Grand Rapids Griffins’ championship rally, the entire event’s available

When I saw an alert from RedWingsFeed stating that the Grand Rapids Griffins had supplemented their 11-minute video of the team celebrating its Calder Cup Championship on the ice in Syracuse, NY, I assumed that the Griffins had posted a short clip. I underestimated the Griffins' video crew again, because they've closed out their 2012-2013 season's worth of between the...

The Q and A was "moderated" by Mickey Redmond:

Ken Kal refuses to let Budd Lynch’s charitable legacy fade away

Pretty awesome stuff from the Windsor Star's Bob Duff: Red Wings public address announcer Budd Lynch passed away last fall, but radio play-by-play man Ken Kal decided that Lynch's legacy in terms of raising funds for the Guidance Center in Southgate, MI, won't fade away: For 23 years, Windsor native Lynch, who died last October at the age of 95, was the face of and...

We all ‘played hurt’ during a lockout-shortened season, and hard feelings still linger

Between Rocky Wirtz's comments to SportsBusiness Journal's Christopher Botta and Gary Bettman's "state of the game" speech, this Red Wings fan and hockey fan feels like the NHL's executives have almost said, "Great season...And we got away with another lockout, moohahaha, moohahaha!" I'm still "sore" about the third owners'...

Kings Season Recap, Player Grades, Looking Ahead by   Jack Weber

It was another long run, but ultimately the Kings’ bid to become the first team since the Detroit Red Wings 15 years ago to repeat as Stanley Cup champions came up short, as their inability to score as well as win on the road finally caught up to them and they fell to the Chicago [...]
