Red Wings overnight report: on offensive balance, roster issues, Alfredsson and Olympic Z

The Red Wings may not be able to move any of their "surplus" players at present, but Ken Holland and Mike Babcock sounded optimistic tones about the state of their team on Detroit Sports 105.1 FM on Tuesday.

Wings Prepared To Go To Camp With What They Have

Ansar Khan of Mlive had a chat with Ken Holland today... Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland made a concerted effort to clear some roster spots and shed salary by making a trade this off-season, but had no luck.

Red Wings overnight report: On Helm, the team’s moves to come and the training camp fund

For the vast majority of the summer, no news regarding one Darren Helm's status has been good news, but as we're approximately a little over a month from the beginning of NHL training camps, fans (myself included) have begun to get a little antsy about Helm's status. The Free Press's George Sipple happened to ask Red Wings GM Ken Holland about Helm's recovery...

Where unsigned Wings Daniel Cleary, Damien Brunner will land is mystery

Detroit — Some issues rolling around the NHL during a relatively quiet summer with training camp about a month away. Cleary is a bona fide professional solid guy on and off the ice and makes whatever team he’s with better. Brunner is a question mark but given the glimpses of goal-scoring ability he showed last season and the lack of offensively gifted players around the league...

Red Wings mid-day news: on Helm, ‘scouting’ the East and fundraising's Bill Roose delivers good news on the Darren Helm front this afternoon...

Neil Sheehy says that Damien Brunner’s ready to wait for his next NHL opportunity

Martin Walti on Twitter sent me toward an article from the Die Nordwestschweiz Zeitung's Marcel Kuchta regarding one Damien Brunner. Kuchta exchanged emails with herr Brunner's agent, Neil Sheehy, and Sheehy says that his client remains committed to signing an NHL deal, and Sheehy says that he understands that he and Brunner will have to wait to land their expected $3+...

It’s a little clunky, but here’s Mike Babcock’s interview on 105.1 FM

I tried recording Red Wings coach Mike Babcock's interview on Detroit Sports 105.1 FM, and it came out a little clunky (you can hear Tweetdeck updating and a Skype message coming in) as this is the first time I've ever recorded anything on my computer, but I snagged the vast majority of the interview (Babcock started the interview being asked about the Tigers' management...

Pavel Datsyuk is having an interesting summer

Mushroom picking. Hope your summer is going well — Pavel Datsyuk (@Datsyuk13) August 12, 2013 Pavel Datsyuk is one interesting individual. Every hockey fan knows that he's a wizard out on the ice with the Detroit Red Wings. What you might not know is that he also leads a mystifying life away from the rink as well.  Thanks to Twitter, we'...

Red Wings mid-day news: Swedish Wings taking part in Olympic orientation camp (and other stuff)

The Swedish Ice Hockey Federation's holding an Olympic orientation camp in Stockholm today and Tuesday, and Henrik Zetterberg, Niklas Kronwall, Gustav Nyquist, Johan Franzen and Jonathan Ericsson are all taking part in the event (so none of the players can take part in Pavel Datsyuk's mushroom hunt today). Aftonbladet posted a slate of Swedish-language video interviews...

On shifting blame and the Senators and Red Wings’ ‘odds’

The "Why did Daniel Alfredsson leave Ottawa for Detroit?" blame game keeps shifting. First, we were told that Alfredsson was presented with a "blank check" but chose to leave anyway. Then, Senators owner Eugene Melnyk repeatedly suggested that the team chose to acquire Bobby Ryan over retaining Alfredsson's services because the team could not accommodate both...

TSN, Sportsnet will air Daniel Alfredsson’s ‘goodbye’ presser at 11 AM today

Oh boy.

Predicting The Atlantic Division

Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star takes a shot at predicting the Atlantic Division... Detroit Red Wings Projected finish: Second Key Additions: F Daniel Alfredsson, C Stephen Weiss Key Subtractions: F Valtteri Filppula Relationship issues: Welcome back to the neighbourhood, old friend. With four Stanley Cup championships since we last met in the playoffs,...

Questioning God (AKA Daniel Alfredsson)

At some point on Thursday, the Ottawa sports media will be stirred from the sleepy doldrums of summer to meet with the man who was, until recently, the longest serving captain in the NHL and the dominant face of the Ottawa Senators franchise. They'll get to question him on why he chose to break the hearts of his faithful and leave for the apparently greener pastures of the...

Red Wings morning report: ‘scouting the Penguins,’ KH on 105.1 FM today and the training camp fund

Last night's crop of Red Wings-related news was very thin, so if you missed it, the Wings are selling preseason tickets this morning, and the Wings will begin selling regular season single-game tickets on August 24th. Otherwise, MLive's Ansar Khan examines a team that the Wings will play much more often in the Eastern Conference in the Pittsburgh Penguins... Continue...
