I don’t know about you, but I get the feeling that if it was purely up to Tomas Holmstrom? He’d have already announced he’s coming back.  But I’m no pharmacist.  Brendan Savage from MLive? He’s smarter and he’s much quicker to lap up whatever the Wings are spooning him. “I haven’t talked to Tomas much,” general manager Ken Holland said. “We had talked about him taking all of June and July to see what he wants to do. I talked to him briefly in July. He’s going to take the summer, obviously. “If he decides to play – we’ve signed (Jordin) Tootoo and (Mikael) Samuelsson and (Damien) Brunner and (Gustav) Nyquist – we have to have a discussion between Homer and I and probably Mike Babcock to see where he fits in.” Lies.  Holland hasn’t talked to Homer “much”? Liar. Continue reading "Oh…So It’s Homer Who’s Making The Decision?"

Savage: Red Wings are letting Tomas Holmstrom take his time in deciding whether to retire

I know that more than a few Red Wings fans have wondered why the team hasn’t made a decision as to whether sixteen forwards (including the as-yet-unsigned Justin Abdelkader) means that there’s no space for 39-year-old Tomas Holmstrom, but MLive’s Brendan Savage spoke to Ken Holland about the looming questions about Holmstrom’s future, and Holland suggested that the team...

Red Wings overnight report: putting a Bouw on trade talk, foreign language news and CBA gabba

Red Wings GM Ken Holland may or may not be talking through both sides of his mouth today, and that’s a good thing. While the Red Wings and the rest of the NHL’s teams have more or less chosen to close up shop in terms of shopping for free agents or making trades (as Paul posted, even the free agents looking for work understand that CBA issues are the biggest reason that even...

Cory Emmerton Has The Worst Team And Zone Adjusted Corsi

Yesterday I listed the worst 20 players in 2011/12 by team and zone adjusted Corsi ratings.  The worst player on the list is Cory Emmerton of the Detroit Red Wings.  Emmerton was a rookie with the team who failed to adjust to a regular NHL role.  He scored six goals and ten points in his 71 games played.  This made him the lowest scoring regular on the Red Wings.  Emmerton...

Red Wings overnight report: charitable happenings, scattershot observations and even more CBA fun

This morning’s crop of news, both Red Wings-related and otherwise, is a little different than usual, even for the summertime, so let’s begin our little survey with Red Wings color commentator Mickey Redmond’s charity golf outing to benefit the Escanaba Area Junior Hockey Association at the Nahma Golf Club, where he spoke to the Escanaba Daily Press’s Justin Marietti about...

The Essentials - Detroit Red Wing Edition

As some of you might have seen, Puck Daddy has been asking bloggers for every NHL team to tell them who are The Essentials for their franchises — everything from the defining player and trade, to the indispensable fan traditions.  We we're asked to represent the DRW and this is what we came up with. Feel free to disagree, like 1/2 the Yahoo users did.   Credit to Puck Daddy...

Red Wings overnight report: a ‘meaningful gulf’ between talk and action

This entry starts with a disclaimer: this might be a little inelegant as I’m still kinda dippy from sleeping all of Thursday, and I’m on the clock to take the mom to a doctor’s appointment (again) today, so here goes: I’m glad that the Macomb Daily’s Chuck Pleiness confirmed that the Red Wings are indeed speaking to the Calgary Flames about Jay Bouwmeester, as MLive...

Paul Coffey, Martin Lapointe and Mathieu Dandenault added to the Red Wings alumni roster

More familiar faces will be returning to Detroit during the Winter Classic Festivities in late December early January. According to the Detroit Free Press, former defensemen Paul Coffey and Mathieu Dandenault as well as former forward Martin Lapointe will take part in the Red Wings’ alumni game from Comerica Park. The former Wings will join former teammates Sergei Fedorov, Slava...

Shades of Gretzky’s 99 All-Stars vs the Detroit Vipers in 95? It could happen again during a lockout

Back in 1994, during the first owners’ lockout, Red Wings fans were hockey-starved to say the least. I remember eventually attending a chunk of the Wings’ impromptu training camp at the Joe and being gobsmacked by—get this—Pavel Agarkov’s talent, and enjoying a, “Wow” moment as I stood on the Joe’s concrete floor as Scotty Bowman had the entire team taking a lap,...

Ian Esplen: Who's the Best....

Follow me on Twitter for random hockey talk, question and answer sessions, and the odd witty tweet Twitter Buttons Tonight, to make to boredom go by a bit faster I will ask who is the best coach in the NHL. Mike Babcock- Maybe the most respected coach in the NHL, Babcock has won pretty much everything that you can win. When he speaks, people listen. The guy truly...
