Red Wings overnight report: Parise and Suter speculation trumps news about the Wings’ draft haul

The Detroit Red Wings drafted six players during rounds 2-7 of the 2012 Draft on Saturday, and thanks to an incredibly industrious MSM and RedWingsCentral’s Matthew Wuest, my initial background entries about Martin Frk, Jake Paterson, Andreas Athanasiou, Mike McKee, James De Haas and Rasmus Bodin gave way to a central repository of stories that was updated 17 times over the course...

Red Wings change approach with this year’s Draft Class

Unlike past years, Ken Holland and the Detroit Red Wings changed philosophies so-to-speak when approaching this year’s draft class. Instead of taking smaller skill players, the Red Wings opted to stock their minor league talent pool with bigger bodies. After not having a pick in the first round the Wings selected six players on the second day of the NHL Draft from the Consol Energy...

Coyotes notebook: Yandle on the way out?

With free agency approaching, the Coyotes were already expected to deal from their strength -- defense -- in order to pick up some much-needed scoring help up front. Trading two prospects and a draft pick to bring defensive-minded blue-liner Zbynek Michalek back to Phoenix only solidified that belief. Michalek will likely fill the salary slot of unrestricted free agent Michal Rozsival...

Red Wings hoping for splashy summer in free agency

Ken Holland didn't expect to get lucky enough in the NHL draft to select an instant-impact player. In free agency, though, the Detroit general manager wants to add at least a couple standouts with enough talent and experience to help the franchise right away.

The Latest Talk On Suter And Yandle

from Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly, A source told CSNPhilly.com early Saturday morning that Penguins general manager Ray Shero is working hard to get Suter’s rights from Nashville.

Red Wings overnight report: Frk’n draft talk, Hall of Fame Tuesday and yes, more free agent blather

Cue the dueling banjos, because this week’s shaping up as a two-topic slug-fest. This morning’s crop of Red Wings stories focus on topics we’ll probably continue revisiting from now until July 1st in the Red Wings’ crop of six new prospects from the 2012 Draft and even more free agent chatter as the press corps working in Zach Parise and Ryan Suter’s potential destinations...

Wings Will Be Going After Schultz

The Wings already got one coveted, rookie free agent and now they offically have thrown their hat in the ring for the other, Justin Schultz.    "We've contacted his agents to express the Detroit Red Wings are interested in signing him to a contract," general manager Ken Holland told MLive.com. "We think there's a tremendous opportunity in Detroit."...

Red Wings fortunate to see Martin Frk fall to 49th overall in Draft

Day 1 of the NHL Draft was a quiet one in the Draft Room of the Detroit Red Wings. They had last selected in the first round in 2010 when the team selected rugged Center Riley Sheahan from Notre Dame of the CCHA. They traded down from 29th overall in 2009 to 32nd overall to [...]

NHL Draft: Detroit Red Wings Nab First Round Talent in the Second Round

By Rhys Richards (@RREsq) In this weekend’s 2012 NHL Entry Draft, the Detroit Red Wings waited until the 49th overall pick in the second round to make the team’s first selection. The extended wait was due to the team trading its first round pick to acquire defenseman Kyle Quincey at the Trade Deadline, but time could prove that the wait was worth it. With the 49th overall...

Michalek returns to Coyotes; is Yandle on way out?

The Coyotes were already expected to deal from their strength -- defense -- in order to pick up some much needed scoring help up front.

Michalek will likely fill the salary slot of unrestricted free agent Michal Rozsival, who made $5 million last...

Red Wings mid-day news: does Mike Ilitch’s presence ensure that the Wings will land top UFA’s?

Thanks to the oddities of Fox Sports Detroit’s aggregation, I needed an assist from NHLGossip to find the article which kicks off today’s crop of Red Wings news, but it’s worth the convoluted trip. We’ve been talking about the concept that NHL teams’ beat writers may or may not be trying to “sell” free agents on potential destinations, and FSD’s Art Regner suggests...
