Captain Zetterberg was determined years ago

As the Detroit Red Wings begin to address this offseason of rebuilding on the fly, one issue is not in question: Henrik Zetterberg is their next captain -- period. It was determined years ago, after Marty Lapointe left for Boston as an unrestricted free agent. Lapointe was and will always be a heart-and-soul Red Wing. When the Bruins offered him a mega-million dollar contract...

Red Wings overnight report: Datsyuk’s daliance at the Awards, overpaying for Helm and covetousness

Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk probably won’t win the Selke Trophy as the league’s best defensive forward tonight, but he’s in Las Vegas to attend the NHL Awards (airing at 7 PM EDT on NBCSN and on tape delay at 8 on the CBC) anyway.

Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard’s at the Michigan International Speedway as a co-grand marshal of today’s “Quicken Loans 400,” and he spoke to the Windsor Star’s Bob Duff about uncertain off-season outlook, suggesting that the Wings don’t need to do much more than be the Wings to attract elite players… As far as what the future holds for his own team, Howard was less...

Mark Spizzirri: Helm returns for 4 years; Schultz not a likely option for Detroit

It wasn't a huge shock this morning when word filtered out that the Detroit Red Wings had re-signed center Darren Helm to a four-year contract extension.

Red Wings assistant GM Jim Nill’s in charge of the Grand Rapids Griffins’ coaching search

I jammed a bunch of mid-day news into the Darren Helm re-signing thread, but as Wings assistant GM Jim Nill happens to serve as the Grand Rapids Griffins’ GM, and they’ve lost the services of Curt Fraser and signed Luke Glendening to an AHL-only contract, Nill’s conversation with the Grand Rapids Press’s Peter J. Wallner, regarding the “farm team’s” search for Fraser’s...

Red Wings overnight report: on losing Stuart and Fraser, and Schultz and free agent speculation

If last week’s teasers and subtle message-sending by general managers, player agents and even players themselves who may or may not be playing the media to skirt tampering rules whetted your appetite for pre-draft rumors, you’re going to love this week and weekend. With the Board of Governors meeting on Tuesday, the NHL Awards on Wednesday and the Entry Draf…I mean Draft taking...
