Updated at 12:28 PM: Amongst this morning's Red Wings-related stories: I guess all one can do is congratulate Francis Pare, a long-serving member of the Grand Rapids Griffins but someone who the Wings simply didn't have room for, as he's found gainful employment overseas: Finnish club TPS of the SM-liiga announced a few hours ago that they signed @GriffinsHockey forward Francis Pare. #FreeAgentFrenzy — MiHockey (@MiHockeyNow) July 8, 2013 Even the roughest of translations of TPS Turku's website's press release reveals that Red Wings Finnish scout Ari Vouri just happens to be Turku's general manager, so there's a Wings connection there, and TPS also signed Ducks forward Dan Sexton.

Daniel Alfredsson, What Are You doing?

Last week, the lifetime Ottawa Senator, Daniel Alfredsson signed with the Detroit Red Wings, prolonging his already lengthy 17-year career.  Alfredsson was drafted in the 1994 NHL draft by the Senators during the sixth round.  He has been the captain of Ottawa since 1999, yet walked away from the city that embraced him in the twilight of his career, rather questionably.

Red Wings evening news: more Alfredsson fallout and Wings roster talk

This evening's crop of Red Wings-related news reflects this afternoon's crop thereof: we've got some Daniel Alfredsson Senators fall-out talk and some Wings roster discussion.

Detroit Red Wings rejoin NHL's offensive elite

The Red Wings used the since-departed Valtteri Filppula at center so that Zetterberg could play on Datsyuk’s wing.Unfortunately, Filppula struggled in...

Red Wings overnight report: on the summer development camp, Weiss’s ‘numbers’ and yes, Alfie talk

The Red Wings' summer development camp begins on Wednesday and Traverse City, and while Darren Helm may be its most high-profile attendee (the Left Wing Lock's Sarah Lindenau confirmed that Danny DeKeyser is not scheduled to take part in the six-day camp), and while Red Wings fans tend to want to see the team's latest draft picks skate in red and white for the first time...

Red Wings mid-day news: on the significance of the Wings’ summer development camp

The Detroit Red Wings' summer development camp begins tomorrow in Traverse City, MI, and while we've talked about the players listed as participating and a little bit about the free agent invitees, we haven't talked about the reasons why the Wings are bringing 37 prospects and free agents (half of the roster consists of free agents, and as the Wings are at the 50-man...

After signing Daniel Alfredsson and Stephen Weiss, the Detroit Red Wings are tight against the salary cap and maxed out on roster space.

Red Wings overnight report: on scouting departures, Babcock on the roster and Shanahan’s HHOF date

From a public perception and PR point of view, the Red Wings followed up a fantastically-crafted Friday with a bit of a herky-jerky performance on Saturday. First we were told that the Wings were "still interested" in re-signing Daniel Cleary, but that Damien Brunner was still headed elsewhere. Then we were told that the Wings were all but ready to move a body off their...

Custance: ‘Wining and dining’ window’s trial run endured some ups, downs and murky boundaries

The Red Wings were one of the beneficiaries of the NHL's new "wining and dining" window in which teams are actually legally allowed to speak with unrestricted free agents-to-be regarding their possible "fits" in new cities. This used to go on in generalities broached by players agents and GM's, and the extra-legal pre-free agency chit chats about, say...

Red Wings evening news: ‘old’ Wings, Hall-of-Famers, prospects and grades

Most of this evening's Red Wings-related news (and given my travel commitments, this may be the overnight report, folks) touches upon topics that you and I've discussed during the mid-day post and overnight report (as well as the releasing of the Wings' summer development camp roster), but I had to laugh when I read the Wall Street Journal's Mike Sielski suggest that...
