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 having read that ESPN's chosen Saturda...

  • 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.
