Aside from prospect-related news, Tuesday was not a super fun "off-day" for Red Wings fans. The team announced that Darren Helm would continue skating but the team's no longer expecting him to return from what we've learned is a "slight tear" in one of his discs, and it is entirely possible that we'll hear similar news about Todd Bertuzzi soon. With the Wings not playing until the team begins a three-games-in-four-nights slate against San Jose on Thursday, the team god bad news in terms of the Western Conference standings on Tuesday, too: St. Louis took a 3-point lead on the Wings via a 1-0 win over Nashville and the Columbus Blue Jackets snuggled right up to 2 points behind Detroit's 43 by defeating San Jose 4-0.

Red Wings, goalie Jimmy Howard close to new deal

The Red Wings and goaltender Jimmy Howard are near an agreement that would keep him off the free-agent market this summer. ''It's really, really close,'' Howard said Thursday. Added Detroit general manager Ken Holland: ''We're close, but it's not a done deal.'' Howard is in the second season of a two-year, $4.5 million deal. Detroit...

Red Wings GM Ken Holland talks to WDFN’s Sean Baligian about playoff chances, trade deadline

Red Wings GM Ken Holland appeared on WDFN's Matt Sheppard show this morning, and Holland spoke at length to Sean Baligian about his team's playoff chances, their trade deadline philosophy about about essentially rebuilding on the fly. WDFN's Twitter account posted some highlights from the interview: Continue reading "Red Wings GM Ken Holland talks to WDFN’s...

Rapping Red Wings: Detroit Must Get Intense, Play Tougher to Retain Their Playoff Streak

A quick check of the schedule and standings should tell fans of the Detroit Red Wings everything they need to know about the last few weeks of the shortened regular season, but is the team paying attention? Detroit currently holds eighth place. They’re three points clear of the Phoenix Coyotes and four points clear of the Dallas Stars, a team which essentially gave up the season...

Red Wings-Sharks set-up and overnight report: on prolonging ‘the streak,’ Pulkkinen and Stuart

The Detroit Red Wings' coaches and management have spent the past two days engaging in what I'd argue is the worst course of action for the representatives of a team in the middle of a vicous battle for its playoff life: they made repeated public statements insisting that the team's personnel have performed up to expectations (much to the ire of annoyed Wings fans), and...

Detroit Red Wings: Winged-wheeling and (Not) Dealing

By Rhys Richards (@RREsq) Paul Sancya Another Trade Deadline has come and gone. While the Detroit Red Wings moved their first round pick for defenseman Kyle Quincey last season, the past several seasons have been relatively quiet for the organization. This season, Detroit made no deals before the 3 pm deadline on Wednesday, though the team did sign highly sought after college defenseman...

Howard Resigns to Six Year Deal

Per TSN: Sounds like Detroit Red Wings and Jimmy Howard are on the verge of coming to terms on a 6 year deal paying in the range of 5.3 M per #TSN — Aaron Ward (@aaronward_nhl) April 11, 2013 So six years at $5.3M per year. I can deal with that. Jimmy is one step below an absolute elite goalie and this pays him as such. Take a look at these comparisons Howard...

Normally, tickets to see the Blackhawks at the United Center average $265/seat, making this matchup is 55% more expensive than the team’s home average. Get...

Red Wings-Sharks game-day updates: Smith in, Tootoo out, Jensen in Frozen Four this eve

The Detroit Red Wings are preparing for what is essentially a must-win game against the San Jose Sharks tonight (7:30 PM EDT, FSD/CSN CA/97.1 FM), and while I don't expect to hear much of anything regarding TSN's Aaron Ward's report that the Wings may be close to re-signing Jimmy Howard, I will say this: until it's done--and the Windsor Star's Bob Duff tossed...

HBO 24/7 - Leafs/Wings

from Bruce Dowbiggin at the Globe and Mail, It was widely agreed (okay, we suggested it) that the Red Wings would be the only attraction for HBO’s cameras in the four-part run-up to the game. Detroit in the postseason every year for two decades. Pavel Datsyuk. Henrik Zetterberg. Mike Babcock. Gordie Howe. The octopus. Toronto? They haven’t lifted the Stanley Cup since...

Sharks-Red Wings Preview

For a team that set an NHL record for consecutive home victories last season, the Detroit Red Wings' recent substandard play at Joe Louis Arena has been extremely uncharacteristic. That may need to change if they plan on extending their 21-season playoff streak. Detroit looks to get back on track Thursday night when it hosts the San Jose Sharks, who have had their share of...

Red Wings overnight report: Margin for error? We don’t need no stinkin’ margin for error!

I'm sticking with Fox Sports Detroit's Ken Daniels on this one. The reason I lost my temper after the Wings-Blues game, and the reasons that Wings fans have been so frustrated while watching their favorite team continue to consistently drop "must-win games" down the stretch, all boil down to 55. During an 82-game season, teams tend to earn playoff spots if they...
