Justin Abdelkader, Detroit Red Wings – $6,279: Abdelkader has won the right to play alongside two fantasy studs in Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. Buffalo was one of the worst defensive teams in the NHL last year and they didn’t improve much in the offseason. That line should be good for a couple goals tonight. Justin Abdelkader brings a lot to the table for Fantasy owners, but the Datsyuk and Zetterberg factor is huge.(Photo Credit: Kirk Irwin/Getty Images) LW Jakob Silfverberg, Anaheim Ducks – $6,298: It is simple, Silfverberg is playing on the second unit with Selanne and could see powerplay time with Getzlaf and Perry. What isn’t to like? LW Ville Leino, Buffalo Sabres – $7,407: In eight games last year Leino put up six points, but he was playing on a line with with Thomas Vanek and Cody Hodgson. He’s expected to play with those two on the Sabres powerplay, but will skate on the second line with Tyler Ennis and Steve Ott. Draft Street Fantasy Hockey Picks: Busts LW Thomas Vanek, Buffalo Sabres – $12,321: I like Leino because he’s cheap, but Buffalo will have a hard time scoring goals against a stingy Wings team. C Vincent Lecavalier, Tampa Bay Lightning – $10,784: Lecavalier should have a solid season, but he is the 5th most expensive option up the middle. Bust is written all over that price tag. G Ryan Miller, Buffalo Sabres – $18,525: Detroit should fill the net tonight early and often. Nothing against Miller, I just don’t like the team in front of him. Viktor Fasth will get the start tonight for the Ducks, even better, the price is right for Daily Games.(Photo Credit: Danny Murphy/Icon SMI) Draft Street Fantasy Hockey Picks: Picks RW Jakub Voracek, Philadelphia Flyers – $10,579: Voracek finished up last year with 11 points in his last 13 games. Playing with Claude Giroux helps. With the Leafs playing on back to back nights, they might be a bit sluggish. C Pavel Datsyuk, Detroit Red Wings – $12,184: Detroit could score five or six against Buffalo tonight and he might be in on four of them. G Jimmy Howard, Detroit Red Wings – $12,490: The Red Wings are a good hockey club and Howard is dandy indeed between the pipes. There is a lot to like about the matchup too. G Viktor Fasth, Anaheim Ducks – $17,817: He’ll get the start, so the price tag is much lower than the others. If you like the Ducks to win and I do – then go for it.

What a whirlwind this week has been for Cory Emmerton already.
The forward was put on waivers by the Red Wings Sunday. No team claimed him and so he thought he was headed to the minor leagues. But he wound up staying with the Red Wings when forward Patrick Eaves was placed on the long-term injured-list.
Tuesday morning Emmerton found himself centering Mikael Samuelsson and Drew...
DETROIT -- The Red Wings are about to embark on a whole new adventure -- the wild, wild East.
A year after the lockout-shortened season had the Wings playing only Western Conference teams, they're now in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.
The new schedule means that the Wings will still see their former rivals from the West, but they won't be spending quite...
Per the Wings' PR department...Here's some marketing/a free plug:

Red Wings prospect Anthony Mantha's had a helluva month (as RedWingsCentral noted), and he's been rewarded for coming back from the Red Wings' prospect tournament with oodles of confidence:
Detroit Red Wings prospect Anthony Mantha (No. 20, 2013) of Val d' Or was named QMJHL player for Sept. Had 8-6-14 in 7 games.

DETROIT -- My Uncle Bertrum used to tell me that you can never have it both ways.
But that appears to be what the NHL is trying to do with fighting.
Former Red Wings great Steve Yzerman told TSNs Darren Dreger that the league needs to re-examine the place of fighting in the game.
Yzerman, now the general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning, told The Dreger Report: Yes, I believe...
The 2013-14 Detroit Red Wings season is so close I can see the bathroom troughs at Joe Louis Arena in my head. A new season, a new league … and, because it’s the Red Wings, a new Swede. This Red Wings team is looking good to go, with less travel, more experienced young guys and a hungry team that was eliminated too early in last year’s playoffs.
The Wings are coming off an...
The Detroit Red Wings had a successful debut as an Eastern Conference team, scoring early and holding on late.
Pavel Datsyuk and Mikael Samuelsson scored 36 seconds apart midway through the first period and Detroit beat the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 Wednesday night in the season-opener for both teams.
"When you start off at home, you always want the first goal and we got two,"...

This was supposed to be a night about new faces and new places.
But this being the Red Wings everything new was old again Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena where a 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres in the season opener was a reminder that some things simply don’t change.
A reminder too that their rough-and-tumble new neighborhood has a few patsies of its own. The “rebuilding”...
I had a feeling that all the Tweets from the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association luncheon which Ken Holland, Kris Draper and Ryan Martin attended would max out the first practice post, and they did, so here's Part II.
MLive's Ansar Khan posted today's practice lines... Continue reading "Red Wings Tuesday practice post II: on Datsyuk, Emmerton and Alfredsson"
With veteran Daniel Alfredsson in the mix, the Detroit Red Wings are eager to begin play in the Eastern Conference.
The 40-year-old winger hopes to make what could be his only season in Detroit a memorable one starting Wednesday night when the Red Wings try to continue their home success against the rebuilding Buffalo Sabres.
Playing its last year in the Western Conference, Detroit...
The Red Wings showed off their depth and their penalty killers on opening night starting a long journey with one sure-footed step.
Two quick goals highlighted the offense while a steady conga line to the penalty box cast favorable light on defense as the Wings collected a 2-1 victory Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena against the Buffalo Sabres.
Fourth-liner Mikael Samuelsson and...
DETROIT– The Detroit Red Wings could not have made a better debut in a new conference and division winning 2-1 over division foe the Buffalo Sabres. Mikael Samuelsson and Pavel Datsyuk led the way with a goal each, and Jimmy Howard had 19 saves to collect his first win as well as the Wings first […]
Yesterday it was reported that Canada's newest Supreme Court Justice Marc Nadon may have fibbed to a Parliamentary committee when he said he had been drafted at the age of 14 by the Detroit Red Wings (prior to abandoning his hockey dreams to pursue his legal dreams.)
Today His Honour backtracked on that claim, saying he had not in fact been drafted in the way most of us understand...
Life in the East starts tonight against our longtime rivals (well if you're NBC at least).
But I don't care about that. All I care about is that Detroit Red Wings hockey is back.
And what does that mean for NOHS? It means that we're going to give you what you want, a game day movie poster to celebrate.
After the break.
Josh usually does the icnredible...
