At the end of an incredibly busy day at Joe Louis Arena, after the Detroit Red Wings had suffered a Jakub Kindl groin injury setback during their morning practice, chose to pass on Wade Redden, informally announced that Tomas Holmstrom will officially retire on Tuesday, announced the naming of three AHL and one ECHL prospects to their respective league's All-Star Games during an afternoon news cycle, and may or may not have lost Todd Bertuzzi's services for Saturday's opener in St. Louis as he chose to rest his sore groin after skating through half of Thursday night's practice... And again, Friday's 12 PM practice will be free and open to the public, with free parking in the Riverfront Lot, and will be streamed on Fox Sports Detroit's website... Wings coach Mike Babcock addressed the press a world away from his, "We're just so grateful to be here" mood when training camp started on Sunday, practically hissing and growling at the press after ...

  • Wings roster is one of the worst in NHL, they will not make playoffs and it is disappointing that Holland doesn't make changes.I am happy Eaves is better but he hasn't played in along time and is a 4th liner at beat. Bertuzzi is done, as well as Cleary. Samuleson is half what he was and what he was, was not the special. Helm and Abelkador are over valued and can't score, Tootto is a thug. The Brunner signing wa s great, but if you get past the top two lines it is a joke. Not enough scoring, especially to make up for the defense. Heck, I would rather have Mkie Knuble than Emmerton (a minor leaguer-who should be cut). Where is Nyquist and Tater??? Now is the time for them. I hope the Wings implode so we can get rid of the junk on this time that never performs, ecpeciaaly in playoffs. Holland needs to clean house or go, Prediction between Bertuzzi, Cleary, Helm, Abs, Eaves, Emmerton, Samuleson they will not score 40 goals and all will be hurt more than they play.
  • Why is it Red Wings fans of all people think they know better then there brain trust on how to run a team. All that can be said is 21 straight playoff trips six finals four Cups no one else besides Holland has done that Coaches and players have come and gone but yet we give Kenny crap. Be happy you get to be a fan of one of the greatest sports franchises ever. We will be in the playoffs again this year this team will have drive.

Uhh... Is Wade Redden Now An Islander?

The New York Islanders have already spent the last week or so adding everyone else's scrap bits, claiming three players off of waivers with Tim Conolly being reported as a fourth. With Wade Redden having officially been bought out by the Rangers, he is free to negotiate - and sign - with other NHL teams. And a very curious addition has been made to the Islanders official website...

Red Wings mid-day news: pondering adding Redden, Helm/Samuelsson status updates, Mrazek the All-Star

Paul already posted this in KK hockey, but it's worth repeating for TMR readers: the New York Rangers have placed Wade Redden on waivers with the intention of buying his contract out, and as the Detroit Red Wings must avail themselves of all their options to attempt to bolster their defense, the Free Press's Helene St. James reports that the Wings are at least considering...

If Detroit Red Wings Choose to Upgrade Their Defense, Wade Redden Could be the Perfect Fit

The Detroit Red Wings, fresh off an offseason which saw the team lose two steady defenders in Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart, might have identified the blue line as their biggest area of need for an upgrade quickly this season. In recent months, flashy back end names such as Keith Yandle, Jay Bouwmeester and Zach Bogosian have come up in rumors. Each one of those defenders, however...

Retired Red Wings Nicklas Lidstrom, Tomas Holmstrom to appear at The Ticket’s SportsFest in Feb.

I don't want the Thursday practice post to get buried by today's waiver news--I'm still updating it with mid-day news stories as there are changes in the respective statuses of Mikael Samuelsson (probably good to go Saturday), Darren Helm (is improving), Joey MacDonald (confusing situation) and Jakub Kindl (sore groin, out for the weekend)--nor do I want the Griffins...

Richard Cloutier: Wade Redden Fetish?

Hi...Short blog for today. Sorry. I have a valid excuse. I got carried away with fantasy hockey leagues tonight. It got so bad that my wife, in protest, started playing Whitney Houston songs really, really loud to punish me for the six-hours straight of drafting. Celine Dion; Whitney Houston; Mariah Carey - I hate that type of "music". A bunch of screaming for no reason...

Hang on, fellow Red Wings fans, we’re groin to be fine…

Oh joy, here the groins come again. The Red Wings will start the season without Jakub Kindl (groin), Darren Helm (back) and most certainly Joey MacDonald (back), and Mikael Samuelsson has just recovered from a groin injury. As it turns out, groin injuries are apparently contagious, though Todd Bertuzzi apparently only skipped the latter half Jam the Joe practice with a sore groin...

Chip McCleary: The NHL, NHLPA, and the new CBA: Making it up as they go along (again)

As I was working on my 2013 Blues Preview on Tuesday, I noticed that there was sudden chatter over an agreement between the NHL and NHLPA regarding compliance buyouts and the situations involving Wade Redden and Scott Gomez. Instead of both guys being sent home for the season but getting paid in full so that their respective teams could buy them out at season’s end, now both...
