Found July 31, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
The Red Wings announced via Twitter that the team’s signed 2011 second-round pick Martin Frk to a 3-year, entry-level contract, and DetroitRedWings.com’s Bill Roose spoke to Wings GM Ken Holland about the team’s decision to sign a player who’s been a member of the organization for all of five weeks: “He came to camp and our guys liked him in Traverse City,” Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said. “He competes hard and has a good shot and he has one year of junior remaining and then he’s pro eligible. So based upon his age, based upon what we saw in Traverse and what our scouts have seen out of him the last couple of years, we decided to sign him to a contract.” The 19-year-old Czechoslovakian is the first Wings’ prospect signed to an entry-level deal a month removed from being drafted since goalie Thomas McCollum signed four months after he was drafted 30th overall in 2008.Continue reading "Red Wings mid-day news: on Frk, Lidstrom, ‘Operation Bobblehead’ and waiting on Doan&

Red Wings overnight report: grumpily debunking the Filppula-Yandle rumor

In theory, anyway, I’m supposed to be on vacation, but after a day spent mostly doing what one does after a long trip preceded by a longer couple of weeks—sleeping—I woke up and found that Alex Kovalevich wanted me to check out some rumors he’d found and posted on Red Wings Grinder, his blog. So I looked immediately to something I have limited access to this week in Twitter...

Offseason of discontent for Red Wings

Believe it or not, back on Feb. 21 the Detroit Red Wings sat atop the NHL standings, which was business as usual. Since that time, it has been anything but business as usual for one of the leagues premier franchises. Injuries during the second half of season, another playoff disappointment, a game-changing retirement and a summer of being jilted by big-name free agents have left...

Detroit Red Wings Prospect Profile: Let Gustav Nyquist Play

By Rhys Richards (@RREsq) The Detroit Red Wings have made 21 straight playoff appearances, the longest streak in professional sports. During that streak, the organization has regularly brought in veteran players to fill its top two forward lines while its prospects mature on the bottom two lines or in the farm system. Detroit’s 1997 Stanley Cup Champion forward corps consisted...

Believe in The Wings - Because We Can Score

Need another reason to believe in your Detroit Red Wings?   Well, here you go, thanks to my local paper, the Columbus Dispatch:  A list, by team, of NHL players who have scored 20 goals in an NHL season, compiled to accompany the story that appeared in today's editions of The Dispatch: #1 BOS (10): Bergeron, Kelly, Krejci, Peverly, Savard, Seguin, Milan, Marchand, Rolston...

Red Wings overnight report: regarding Frk, Abdelkader, the CBA, Swedish charity hockey games and OCD

Certain things have reminded me that I’m in the middle of an all-too-short vacation, including having to buy half a gazillion 12-packs of Diet Coke to last the mom for two days, my Uncle Joey proving that there’s no wood wet enough that a quart of lighter fluid can’t turn into a fire, staying up far too late at said fire, and having to tell the boss that this Tweet from RedWingsFeed...

Cloutier vs. Salo Only #4?; Hank's New Ride

While Rangers fans will always vote Dan Cloutier vs. Tommy Salo as the greatest goaltender fight of all time, The Hockey News only has it at #4... 4. Dan Cloutier (Rangers) vs. Tommy Salo (Islanders) Cloutier’s fight with Tommy Salo came April 4, 1998. P.J. Stock tangled with Mariusz Czerkawski, ripped his helmet and jersey off and in came Salo. When Salo joined, Cloutier couldn’t...

Vote For Your Favorite Bobblehead

Paul for George who is sunning in the great UP. Detroit, MI… For the second consecutive year the Detroit Red Wings will be asking fans to help determine which players will be featured in their season-long bobblehead giveaway promotion in 2012-13.

Red Wings evening news: on stupid Yandle rumors, an annoying wait and Kocur’s charity softball game

I absolutely despise doing this, but as a follow-up to the overnight report’s take on “Hockeyinsiderr’s” belief that the Wings are seriously bidding for Yandle, here’s your okay, folks, it’s official, this guy’s nuts—and the Wings would be nuts, too, to offer this kind of package for one player: BREAKING NEWS: The #RedWings have offer on the table for #Coyotes Yandle...

It's Time to Calm Down

I'm not going to lie and say that I have it all together when it comes to being a Red Wings fan. In fact, my fandom has gone on a roller coaster ride ever since the Wings lost in the 1st round back in April. Free agency (or lack of) hasn't helped. I have been slacking on writing lately partly because my hockey emotions have left me pretty numb. I care about this team just...

Mark Spizzirri: The wait continues in Motown; Red Wings sign Frk

Following a July to forget for most Red Wing fans with the club striking out in acquiring the services of a Ryan Suter or Zach Parise, the wait continues as the calendar turns to the month of August on whether the Red Wings will be able to secure the services of a top-four defenseman or a top-six forward to upgrade a roster that has struggled to find significant post-season success...
