Found March 20, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
The Western Conference standings are tighter than Adrian Dantley's wallet.  The Wings 33 pts have them holding onto the 7th spot at the moment, 3 pts out of 4th place, and only 3 pts in front of 10th place CBJ.  Jobu was apparently in charge of Tuesday's practice;  Eaves is questionable after being hit in the mellon by a puck, Datsyuk has the flu, and Hank has the runs. MIN have passed VAN and lead the Northwest. Time to pull an Al Davis; just win, baby. Continue reading "GDT - Game 30: Red Wings (14-10-5) host Wild (16-10-2) 7:30"

Red Wings will bring prospect Calle Jarnkrok to Detroit to visit, not play

Red Wings prospect Calle Jarnkrok's Swedish team, Brynas IF, won't repeat as Swedish Eliteserien champions. They were ingloriously swept from the playoffs by Skelleftea AIK on Monday, leaving Jarnkrok's future up in the air. The Wings signed him a year ago, but chose to loan him to Brynas for the Eliteserien season, and the Swedish-language newspapers have assumed that...

Datsyuk scores in EA’s NHL 94…Sort of…

This video comes to you through multiple hands...I stumbled upon it via RedWingsFeed, and Sportsline's Brian Stubits saw it via a Tweet from's Dave Lozo, but it's worth the effort. took Pavel Datsyuk's end-to-end goal against Nashville and de-pixelated it, added some sound effects and turned it into a clip reminiscent of most over-30 hockey fans'...

Via RedWingsFeed, former Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom's in Gothenburg, Sweden today to take part in a photo shoot for a clothing line (seriously), and Goteborgs-Tidingen's Johan Skold asked Lidstrom about the role of a "retstickor"--literally translated, a "teaser," or what we might call "instigators" or "shift disturbers"--in...

Red Wings overnight report: broken players and a prospect in the pipleine?

My technological odyssey continued on Monday afternoon, so I took a little time to attend to something I'll need to write a short story about one day... And the Red Wings and their fans received bad news, bad news and more bad news in the injury department. In theory, we all assumed, Kyle Quincey had only suffered a chipped cheekbone, and could be back within a week or two...

Red Wings-Wild wrap-up and overnight report: disallowed game

The Detroit Red Wings fell into an all-too-familiar trap in dropping their first (and in this case "only") game back from a Western Canadian road swing against a team that had made the same trip, dropping a 4-2 decision to the Minnesota Wild in a game that wasn't nearly as close on the ice as it was on the scoreboard. While the Wings weren't particularly thrilled...

All Chuck Fletcher

from Dan Rosen of, A lot of general managers will say they look at the Detroit Red Wings as the model for consistency as a franchise. As a younger GM with experience working in the League for several teams, does that play with you as well and do you want to model your team after the Red Wings? "I think so, but it's a pretty tough path to duplicate their...

NBA Hall of Famer Adrian Dantley now works as a crossing guard (Video)

NBA Hall of Famer Adrian Dantley has found himself a niche that has nothing to do with basketball. Unlike many professional athletes who find themselves bored, broke or both after their careers are over, Dantley has made himself useful to the community of Silver Spring, Md. by serving as a crossing guard at Eastern Middle School. As Deadspin pointed out last week, the job earns the...

Tootoo goal waved off

The Red Wings theoretically scored a goal here, but referee Dave Jackson deemed Drew Miller to have tipped the puck down with a high stick:

Fredo’s Back Soon, And This Time For Good

How long before we see this?  "Getting Carlo back is just like kicking some tires at the deadline and coming away with a special player, a special man, really. I like our team." Ken Holland's big offseason splash is on the verge of returning, essentially guaranteeing the Wings one period of excellence before he gets hurt again. Defenceman Carlo Colaiacovo also...
