I want a company ...a good company ... A good oil company ... ;-). Happy April Fools Day everyone! — Pavel Datsyuk (@Datsyuk13) April 2, 2013 Any guesses?  Datsyuk's Tweet left most fans puzzled. We could look at this several ways. Datsyuk was bored and wanted to vaguely imply he liked the Edmonton Oilers before dispelling the notion a few characters later. Or, Datsyuk was looking for some romantic company but psyched us all out because he was talking about an ...oil company. Maybe Datsyuk was trying to say he wanted to purchase a company because he was bored, something along th...

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...

Red Wings on Facebook: Getting DeKeyser

I think we all remember the excitement of the NHL trade deadline in 1999. I faked sick getting out of my sixth-grade classes, purely so I could go home and watch ESPN‘s (then) wall-to-wall coverage. When ESPN/ABC had broadcasting rights to the league, they made the trade deadline a HUGE freaking deal; Barry Melrose, Steve [...]

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?
