Found July 11, 2012 on Nightmare on Helm Street:
I guess all those beatdowns by the Winged Wheel really stuck with #61.   Today, the Dispatch released Nash's trade-list and Detroit's on it.   Nash's list of "approved" destinations -- Boston, Detroit, the New York Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and San Jose...Not one of Canada's seven NHL franchises made the list, including the club Nash grew up worshipping, the Toronto Maple Leafs. It's certainly interesting and keeps me at least interested in the whole deal.  I know people are very hesitant to get on the Nash train because of worries about his game and effort level, but as someone who lives in Columbus and can afford the $3 tickets to the Jackets games (not kidding), I can say that Nash is something special and would absolutely kill it in a Wings uni.   Hit the jump for more on Nash:  The Dispatch (which, by the way, is an example how hockey should be covered by a local paper, they do a great job. Take note Detroit "deep diggers.") ...

Red Wings morning report: the waiting game and prospect talk

In terms of at least maintaining some sort of semi-professional level of composure, he most difficult task I’ve faced while covering the Red Wings’ summer development camp involves fighting the almost involuntary urge to yell, “Get a defenseman! Get a scorer! For Gord’s sake, do something!” when I find myself within close physical proximity of members of the Red Wings...

Red Wings development camp, day 5, morning session: off-script and winding down

As the Red Wings’ summer development campers slowly but surely find themselves headed toward the end of their time here in Traverse City, the coaches planned on winding things down ever-so-subtly today, but they didn’t account for a giant wrench being thrown into the proceedings: Brendan Smith told me that the bus that was supposed to take the prospects from their resort hotel...

Red Wings development camp, day 3: scrimmage!

As the Red Wings’ prospects lay their heads down after a 6-5 shootout victory for Team Lidstrom at the Wings’ summer development camp, this blogger feels like he drew long straws all week and is now getting the short one.

Red Wings development camp, day 4, morning session: that’s dumbing it down?

If I am to believe what I was told by Jim Paek, the Red Wings development camp’s skill development specialists and drill coaches “dumbed things down” a bit to account for the fact that the prospects were more than a little tired and, gauging by the number of ice bags worn as fashion accessories by so many players, banged-up after last night’s scrimmage. That being said...

Paul here for George who is deep-digging in Traverse City… from Chuck Pleiness of Red Wings Front, The writing seems to be on the wall for Tomas Holmstrom and it’s all saying it may be time to retire. However, Wings general manager Ken Holland isn’t ready to close the book on Holmstrom until the two of them actually sit down and meet. “We’re going to talk, if not in...

More Red Wings morning news and early development camp day 5 audio

It’s been a strange morning at the Red Wings’ summer development camp. The players’ bus didn’t come to their hotel on time, so the on and off-ice activities didn’t begin until almost 9 instead of 8:20, but the team won’t have a short break in between the morning’s workouts and skill drills and the afternoon’s sessions, which will further throw off players’ schedules...

Red Wings development camp, day 5, afternoon session: wrapping up the last two-a-days day

On what is day five of the Red Wings’ development camp, technically day six for the prospects thanks to a brief scrimmage on Saturday, and the fourth day over the past five that the players woke up at 6:50 and didn’t leave the rink until after 5 PM, engaging in grueling two-a-day sessions of on-ice skill development and drills alternated with off-ice training… Either the morning...

Red Wings summer development camp, day 4, afternoon session: short strokes

The Red Wings’ prospects who took part in the afternoon version of today’s skill development and team drills at the Wings’ summer development camp were a wee bit more chipper than those who had to try to sleep off adrenaline after a rousing Tuesday night scrimmage, but the turnaround from heading back to their hotel at 10 PM and trying to get some shut-eye in before their 6...

Mikael Samuelsson Criticizes Alex Burrows for Biting Patrice Bergeron, Says He Should Have 'Let the Bear Sleep'

Don't poke the bear. NESN's Jack Edwards has been warning people for years, and the Canucks just didn't listen, although Mikael Samuelsson would have preferred if they did. During an interview with the Swedish website HockeySvierge.Se, Samuelsson, who played for the Canucks in 2011, made it clear that he thought Alex Burrows biting Patrice Bergeron during the Stanley...

Red Wings Winter Classic Alumni Games stories and catch-up news

Some might think that the Red Wings’ announcement that they’ll hold two Alumni games with the Toronto Maple Leafs as part of the Hockeytown Winter Festival to be as bright as what Jordin Tootoo did for charity recently, but I tend to think that the decision makes sense on several fronts: 1. First and foremost, the Wings and Leafs alumni associations are two of the biggest and...
