I'm feeling absolutely miserable, and it seems to have little to nothing to do with the Wings' ugly 7-1 loss to Chicago, so I'm going to do something very rare: I'm going to direct you to Gregg Krupa's, "The sky is not falling, the Wings are just in flux" column, because I really do believe what Krupa suggests--that this team simply has suffered too many injuries and too much roster turnover to be particularly consistent or truly embrace that post-Lidstrom identity until April 27th at the earliest--I will remind you that the Wings play tonight against Colorado (7:30 PM EDT, FSD/NBCSN/97.1 FM), and will probably do so without the services of Henrik Zetterberg... And before this polar bear crawls back under the covers to get warm, which is my surest, "George, you have a bad cold" sign, I'm going to throw something out that Paul sent to me: the Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson believes that the Red Wings need to do something that goes ag...

Apparently fans tossing moose legs on the ice is hockey tradition in Northern Manitoba

Most of you know of, or have heard of, the tradition in Motown where Detroit Red Wings fans will throw dead octopi on the ice during home games. Well, did you know there’s a similar, albeit less well known, tradition in Northern Manitoba, only instead of eight legged sea creatures the fans toss severed moose legs onto the ice? Yeah, neither did we. This past Monday night during...

Detroit Red Wings Trade Rumors: Derek Morris an Option With Jay Bouwmeester Gone?

The Detroit Red Wings may set their sights on Phoenix defenseman Derek Morris, following Jay Bouwmeester’s trade from Calgary to St. Louis. That’s what ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun speculated in his “Rumblings” blog on Tuesday morning, one day before the NHL’s trade deadline. According to LeBrun, the Wings were very much in the mix for Bouwmeester, “but, in the end, they didn’t...

Rapping Red Wings: Easter Sunday Massacre Proves Detroit Must Shake Things Up Now

History has taught us about the St. Valentines Day Massacre, which saw seven mobsters murdered in Chicago, casting a pall over a day usually reserved for love. Though Easter is traditionally a time reserved to celebrate the virtues of rebirth, that was impossible for anyone watching a hockey game at Joe Louis Arena yesterday or tuned in live on television. Sunday, there was a holiday...

Detroit Red Wings wear Gordie Howe jerseys for warmups

On Sunday in honor of Detroit Red Wings legend Gordie Howe’s 85th birthday, the Red Wings wore #9 Howe jerseys during warmups.  No word on what will be done with the jerseys after, but it is definitely a nice gesture for Mr. Hockey.  Unfortunately the Red Wings came out flat and gave up three goals early in the first period to the Chicago Blackhawks and they appear to be out...

Why the Red Wings didn’t land Bouwmeester

ESPN's Pierre LeBrun offers quite the scoop as to why the Detroit Red Wings did not win the Jay Bouwmeester sweepstakes (aside from the fact that the Wings would have been nuts to take on all of Bouwmeester's $6.68 million cap hit for next season given that the team needs to re-sign UFA's-to-beJimmy Howard and Damien Brunner, decide whether to re-sign Valtteri Filppula...

Avalanche-Red Wings Preview

The Detroit Red Wings not only got throttled in their latest game, but they're also suddenly dealing with injuries to two veteran forwards.

Red Wings-Avs quick take: ugly counts

The Red Wings' 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche was perhaps the ugliest win the Wings have earned in a long time, with the Wings' defense giving the puck away nearly as many times (Wings listed as having five giveaways? Try fifteen or twenty...) as they did during the team's 7-1 loss to Chicago... But the Wings need to jam as many points and regulation-or-OT wins...

What A Week

So just over a week ago I left the desert, and the world of hockey fandom, briefly to visit the Pacific Northwest. Brother was graduating college, which for me was probably my own personal peak of achievement so I was happy to share his with him. Very proud of the guy and I feel I need not mention I watched zero hockey whilst using him as a middle man to treat myself to amazing food...
