Found August 10, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
Winging it in Motown's JJ from Kansas posited the Detroit Red Wings version of Puck Daddy's "National Hockey League of Nations" article, attempting to pick the best Red Wings player from each and every one of the countries which have produced Red Wings players, and if we're going with "most naturally talented," I can't disagree with his pick for Russia: Russia: Sergei Fedorov: Oh boy, here we go. While Igor Larionov, Slava Fetisov, and Vladimir Konstantinov deserve to be mentioned here, the best player designation is always going to come down between two players and the way they're viewed among Red Wings fans could not be more divided. One had more raw talent, the other worked harder to hone his natural gifts. One was flashier, the other better-grounded.

Red Wings afternoon news: on Ian White and points of ‘exciting’ emphasis

Red Wings overnight report: wading into the Alfredsson mess and a middling Paterson appearance

Paul noted that Daniel Alfredsson told the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch that he will in fact hold some sort of press conference this week, but the balance of Garrioch's article involves Senators owner Eugene Melnyk repeating his talking points from his Friday conversation with the Ottawa Citizen's James Gordon, though Garrioch paraphrases much of it.

Sipple: the Red Wings are slowly breaking in Ryan Martin

The Red Wings' front office is still most likely rebounding from the mostly expected loss of long-time assistant GM Jim Nill and the surprising losses of director of amateur scouting Joe McDonnell and eastern Canada scout Mark Leach to Dallas. The team knew that Nill would eventually leave, and they promoted McDonnell to essentially the director of their draft operations and...

Does Eugene Melnyk satisfactorily explain Alfredsson issue?

Is a blank check really a blank check if it comes with stipulations? Can a stated dedication to a player later be used against that player? The team? The situation with the Ottawa Senators - specifically between their owner, Eugene Melnyk and their former captain, Daniel Alfredsson - is a case study in how messages can get mixed up. Fans can be forgiven for not knowing which, if...

A trio of charitable hockey reminders and meager Red Wings pickings

This past week has been quite busy from a Red Wings news perspective, so while I certainly understand that some of you feel like this is a quiet time of year, it sure doesn't feel that way to me.
