This deserves its own post, because Pavel Datsyuk’s himself: Sportsnet Northeast’s Joe Haggerty spoke to Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron and some guy named Pavel Datsyuk about CBA negotiations, and Datsyuk issued the sharpest and wisest observation about the whole schlemiel: The looming CBA negotiations elicited different reactions across the group of NHL stars at the Wynn Resort and Casino readying for Wednesday night’s NHL Awards ceremony. Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk wasn’t hiding his concern for the good of the game and the ultimate winners and losers: hockey fans. “Of course I’m worried about it,” said Datsyuk when asked about the CBA. “The last lockout was really bad for the fans. If it happened again it would be a bad, bad thing for the fans.” Continue reading for Chara and Bergeron’s takes on the NHLPA’s role in negotiations…

Red Wings overnight report: Datsyuk’s daliance at the Awards, overpaying for Helm and covetousness

Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk probably won’t win the Selke Trophy as the league’s best defensive forward tonight, but he’s in Las Vegas to attend the NHL Awards (airing at 7 PM EDT on NBCSN and on tape delay at 8 on the CBC) anyway. David Backes is the favorite to win given that Datsyuk missed a dozen games recovering from knee surgery, and while we haven’t heard too...

Captain Zetterberg was determined years ago

As the Detroit Red Wings begin to address this offseason of rebuilding on the fly, one issue is not in question: Henrik Zetterberg is their next captain -- period. It was determined years ago, after Marty Lapointe left for Boston as an unrestricted free agent. Lapointe was and will always be a heart-and-soul Red Wing. When the Bruins offered him a mega-million dollar contract...

Red Wings afternoon news: on the Diva, the Wings’ home opener and other tidbits

As we wait for Pavel Datsyuk to take part in the NHL Awards tonight at 7 PM EDT (on NBCSN live and on the CBC on tape delay), I did something incredibly rare for a blogger working on 4 hours of sleep thanks, to a 10:30 AM interview—I took a nap this afternoon—and as such, the Chief beat me to the punch here: After this morning’s assessment of Jaromir Jagr’s possible ...

Helm agrees to stay with Red Wings

Darren Helm has agreed to a four-year deal to remain with the Detroit Red Wings. General manager Ken Holland announced the contract Tuesday. Helm, a 25-year-old center, had nine goals and 17 assists in 68 games last season. He had surgery on a tendon in his right arm after he was hurt in Game 1 of a first-round playoff series against Nashville. The Red Wings lost in five games...

Via Paul, the Wings have knocked one of their three restricted free agent signings off the list by re-signing Darren Helm, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger: Darren Helm agrees to 4 year, $8.5 deal in Detroit.

Hey Zach - Want To Know Why You Should Pick Detroit?

Hey Mr. Parise?  Mind if I call you Zach? There's a million reasons out there why you should pick Detroit over New Jersey (and the rest of the field).  But I'd like to introduce you to a guy who's been there before.   He's another another American, a fellow Olympian that you probably know pretty well.  He made a similar decision not that long ago and would like...

Red Wings assistant GM Jim Nill’s in charge of the Grand Rapids Griffins’ coaching search

I jammed a bunch of mid-day news into the Darren Helm re-signing thread, but as Wings assistant GM Jim Nill happens to serve as the Grand Rapids Griffins’ GM, and they’ve lost the services of Curt Fraser and signed Luke Glendening to an AHL-only contract, Nill’s conversation with the Grand Rapids Press’s Peter J. Wallner, regarding the “farm team’s” search for Fraser’s...

Is Next Year Babcock's Chance For A Jack Adams?

Well the Wings ended up empty-handed last night, which isn't suprising really to anyone.  Datsyuk's third place in Selke voting was the closest the Wings came to any hardware.  One thing I noted though is that Mike Babcock finished 10th in Jack Adams voting with one 3rd place vote.  Sure, this year wasn't the Wings best and I don't think he deserved to win, but...

Red Wings evening news: free agent chatter and Darren Helm-plications

Amongst this evening’s Red Wings-related news: • First and foremost, no. Just no. Bobby Ryan would be too expensive and the Wings are worried about adding via free agency, not surrendering assets in a trade. • The most interesting scuttlebutt of directly Red Wings-related note comes from the Windsor Star’s Bob Duff’s Twitter account... #redwings Holland on neg. with...
