Found September 28, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
Both the Red Wings and the Maple Leafs are dressing relatively prospect-laden lineups when the teams battle in Toronto this evening (7 PM, CBC/NHL Network U.S.), with Petr Mrazek and Jared Coreau slated to split duties (per MLive's Ansar Khan) opposite James Reimer. The Leafs hope to gain a measure of revenge for their 5-2 loss to the Wings on Friday night. The NHL Network claims that it's going to air tonight's game, but we have yet to find out whether they'll "flip the switch": The @DetroitRedWings took last night's game vs. the @MapleLeafs 5-2, but who will come out on top tonight? Find out on @NHLNetwork at 7pm ET — NHL (@NHL) September 28, 2013 Th CBC's gearing up for its regular season "dress rehearsal"...

Surveying the Red Wings’ Sunday roster moves

While I was trying to get some sleep, the Red Wings got busy starting to clear roster space, placing Cory Emmerton on waivers and Darren Helm on the LTIR, demoting a gaggle of players to Grand Rapids (my gut feeling remains that Nathan Paetsch will be signed to a 2-way deal once the Wings back off the 50-man roster limit) and pondering other moves to knock the roster down from 25...

Maple Leafs trade Colborne to Flames for a pick

Ye Olde Red Wings Block Font Letter Question

Additional photos and info here. Meanwhile, in an annual rite of September...

Red Wings-Maple Leafs pre-season wrap-up, overnight report and Freep Wings preview time: on tap…

The Red Wings' 3-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night yielded both a "series split" in the teams' home-and-home exhibition-ending tilts (on Friday, Detroit defeated Toronto 5-2 in a battle of NHL lineups) and what I can best describe as mixed signals from the Grand Rapids Griffins-heavy lineup battling an almost equally green Leafs team. As I noted...

Toronto Maple Leafs season preview.

October is finally around the corner and the NHL season is almost here! The Toronto Maples Leafs suffered a surprising Game 7 loss to Boston in round one of the playoffs last spring and despite their loss, Toronto was able to take a major step in the right direction last season. “It’s a tough pill to swallow at that time, and I think everyone’s over it now and there’s really...

Red Wings recall a ‘B Team’s’ worth of players and prospects for Saturday

If you're heading to the Air Canada Centre to watch the Red Wings take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night (7 PM, CBC/NHL Network U.S.), you might want to know that the Red Wings' lineup that dominated Toronto en route to a 5-2 victory won't necessarily be the one skating at the Air Canada Centre... Because the Wings, who already have Tomas Jurco, Luke Glendening...

Will the Red Wings have to split up Datsyuk and Zetterberg?

No I do not mean split them up as in a trade, I mean split them up on a line. The plan going in to the pre season was with the addition of Weiss datsyuk and Zetterberg can play on a line all year long however so far this preseason it doesn’t look like that is going to happen. I wrote a piece earlier and I touched on the 2nd line a bit but I’m here now to take more thenjust...

What The Wings May Do To Get Cap Compliant

from Ansar Khan of Mlive, If Emmerton clears at noon on Monday, he will be assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins. Either way, the move opens a roster spot and shaves $533,000 off the cap. General manager Ken Holland said center Darren Helm (back) will be placed on long-term injured reserve on Monday. That clears another roster spot and gives the club $2.125 million in...

Red Wings-Maple Leafs pre-season quick take: Wings finally look like themselves

There was a wee bit of bad news during the Red Wings' 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, but it involved ye olde precautionary pull as opposed to anything major (hopefully, anyway)...

All Dave Nonis

Damien Cox of the Toronto Sun did a Q & A with Leafs GM Dave Nonis, Q: There’s been a transformation of this team over the last eight, nine years from a team with a large European influence to a team that is predominantly North American, and of that, predominantly Canadian. Does that fit your vision? A: I wouldn’t say it’s a vision. I wouldn’t have any problem...

Gustav Nyquist and Petr Mrazek to Grand Rapids

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have to deal with the salary cap so they had to make a few decisions Monday. They sent forward Gustav Nyquist and goaltender Petr Mrazek to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League. Sending Nyquist down is a move to help the team get under the 64.3 million cap, meaning he won't be stuck in Grand Rapids the whole season. Nyquist...
