TEAMS: Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings' summer development camp begins on Wednesday and Traverse City, and while Darren Helm may be its most high-profile attendee (the Left Wing Lock's Sarah Lindenau confirmed that Danny DeKeyser is not scheduled to take part in the six-day camp), and while Red Wings fans tend to want to see the team's latest draft picks skate in red and white for the first time, Grand Rapids Griffins coach Jeff Blashill told the Detroit Free Press's George Sipple that a) he's getting antsy a little under a month removed from winning the Calder Cup and b) the players who will be at his disposal this fall in Grand Rapids are the ones who pique his interest: Continue reading "Red Wings overnight report: on the summer development camp, Weiss’s ‘numbers’ and yes, Alfie talk"

Daniel Alfredsson, What Are You doing?

Last week, the lifetime Ottawa Senator, Daniel Alfredsson signed with the Detroit Red Wings, prolonging his already lengthy 17-year career.  Alfredsson was drafted in the 1994 NHL draft by the Senators during the sixth round.  He has been the captain of Ottawa since 1999, yet walked away from the city that embraced him in the twilight of his career, rather questionably.

Red Wings evening news: more Alfredsson fallout and Wings roster talk

This evening's crop of Red Wings-related news reflects this afternoon's crop thereof: we've got some Daniel Alfredsson Senators fall-out talk and some Wings roster discussion. Let's start with the Alfredsson stuff this time. We know that Senators fans are more than a bit pissed off by the way the divorce went down, and the fact that it's incredibly evident that...

Red Wings mid-day news: bidding farewell to Pare, UFA talk, HHOF reminders and Alfredsson in Swedish

Updated at 12:28 PM: Amongst this morning's Red Wings-related stories: I guess all one can do is congratulate Francis Pare, a long-serving member of the Grand Rapids Griffins but someone who the Wings simply didn't have room for, as he's found gainful employment overseas: Finnish club TPS of the SM-liiga announced a few hours ago that they signed @GriffinsHockey...

GARTH: Brunner

The Detroit Red Wings signed a great center when they signed Swiss star Damien Brunner as a free agent on July 1, 2012.

Detroit Red Wings rejoin NHL's offensive elite

The addition of Stephen Weiss and Daniel Alfredsson could move Detroit’s offense back toward the NHL’s elite.The pieces should fit together nicely. Weiss is a natural center who slides in behind No. 1 pivotman Pavel Datsyuk. The Red Wings used the since-departed Valtteri Filppula at center so that Zetterberg could play on Datsyuk’s wing.Unfortunately, Filppula struggled in...

Red Wings mid-day news: on the significance of the Wings’ summer development camp

The Detroit Red Wings' summer development camp begins tomorrow in Traverse City, MI, and while we've talked about the players listed as participating and a little bit about the free agent invitees, we haven't talked about the reasons why the Wings are bringing 37 prospects and free agents (half of the roster consists of free agents, and as the Wings are at the 50-man...

Savage: Red Wings will re-sign Cleary when they get under the 50-man roster limit

The Detroit Free Press's Helene St. James suggested that the Red Wings would probably sign Daniel Cleary to a 3-year deal about an hour ago, and now MLive's Brendan Savage is reporting that a player St. James deemed to be one of Mike Babcock's favorites on Twitter... Will in fact re-sign with the team once the Wings can find room for him: Daniel Cleary is going...

TDSS Roundtable: On the Detroit Red Wings’ Trade Options and Daniel Cleary

After signing Daniel Alfredsson and Stephen Weiss, the Detroit Red Wings are tight against the salary cap and maxed out on roster space. So, as GM Ken Holland openly admits, there are some moves on the horizon. The starting points for the rest of the Red Wings’ offseason are in the spotlight for our latest Roundtable: 1. Which players should the Red Wings move before the season...

Well what the f*** then? Now Pleiness reports that the Red Wings aren’t close to re-signing Cleary

Okay, so maybe we know that the front office is indeed in flux today, because we were first told that Daniel Cleary was about to re-sign with the Wings, and minutes after MLive's Brendan Savage got an answer from Ken Holland as to what the waylaid scouting staff would do to rebound from Jim Nill's extrication of its director of amateur scouting, the Macomb Daily's Chuck...

Detroit Red Wings: A SweDetroit Free Agency

(Via Getty Images). By Rhys Richards (@RREsq) In the hours before the start of free agency at noon on Friday, the Detroit Red Wings were planning to execute the biggest coup in recent memory.

Red Wings overnight report: on scouting departures, Babcock on the roster and Shanahan’s HHOF date

From a public perception and PR point of view, the Red Wings followed up a fantastically-crafted Friday with a bit of a herky-jerky performance on Saturday. First we were told that the Wings were "still interested" in re-signing Daniel Cleary, but that Damien Brunner was still headed elsewhere. Then we were told that the Wings were all but ready to move a body off their...

Red Wings evening news: ‘old’ Wings, Hall-of-Famers, prospects and grades

Most of this evening's Red Wings-related news (and given my travel commitments, this may be the overnight report, folks) touches upon topics that you and I've discussed during the mid-day post and overnight report (as well as the releasing of the Wings' summer development camp roster), but I had to laugh when I read the Wall Street Journal's Mike Sielski suggest that...
