Found September 09, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:

Mike Modano played 22 seasons in the NHL, 21 of them with the Stars in Minnesota and Dallas and one with the Red Wings. Over Labor Day weekend, Modano married professional golfer Allison Micheletti, daughter of former NHLer and current hockey analyst Joe Micheletti. The same year that Modano played his first game in the NHL, 1989, Allison was born.  She’s 24 years old. Modano announced that he was hanging up his skates two Septembers ago and divorced actress/modal Willa Ford a year ago.  Modano is the highest-scoring American-born player in NHL history with 561 goals and 1,374 points.  The biggest score could be finding a woman 19 years his younger who knows her way around the golf course. Allison was a contestant on Big Break Atlantis and previously dated PGAer Martin Kaymer.  Joe Micheletti played in the NHL from 1979 to 1982.

How bright does the Red Wings future look?

The Detroit Red Wings have been one, if not the best, NHL team for the past 20 years. But will that continue with the Wings moving east and some of its main core of players 30 and above in age?

All The Dan Cleary Talk

A lot of head scratching going on over the Flyers and Dan Cleary reaching an agreement on a contract which will pay Cleary $8.25M over 3 years plus a No-Trade Clause.

Red Wings overnight report: remembering Lokomotiv, a Datsyuk follow-up, and Bryan Rufenach Day

The hockey blogger's rules for a "slow day" involve, "Don't look around too much, or you'll find more than enough to keep you busy." I should have listened to that rule, because I ended up finding a decent crop of Wings-related and plain old interesting stuff, and spent three hours doing so. Saturday marked the second anniversary of the Lokomotiv...
