Step up or else for Red Wings' defensemen

PLYMOUTH, Mich. -- Coach Mike Babcock jokingly asked him to, but Nick Lidstrom isn't coming out of retirement.

Many people around the league are predicting a hard fall for the Wings based on those losses. But Niklas...

Hang on, fellow Red Wings fans, we’re groin to be fine…

Oh joy, here the groins come again. The Red Wings will start the season without Jakub Kindl (groin), Darren Helm (back) and most certainly Joey MacDonald (back), and Mikael Samuelsson has just recovered from a groin injury. As it turns out, groin injuries are apparently contagious, though Todd Bertuzzi apparently only skipped the latter half Jam the Joe practice with a sore groin...

Video: Henrik Zetterberg Talks to the NHL Network About Being Named Captain

The Detroit Red Wings, as expected, named Henrik Zetterberg captain on Tuesday, making the veteran forward just the third team captain since 1986. Zetterberg replaced Nicklas Lidstrom in that role — Lidstrom retired last summer following the Wings’ playoff loss to Nashville. Zetterberg talked with the NHL Network about what the honor meant and how he expects to lead in the locker...

She...

Red Wings pre-Zetterberg announcement mashup: Datsyuk muses about Russian return, injury updates etc

As you and I wait for official confirmation that the Red Wings have named Henrik Zetterberg their new captain, and we either make our way to Compuware Arena for tonight's 6 PM scrimmage (on Fox Sports Detroit and WXYT AM), I thought I might try to offer you some tide-you-over observations and comments regarding the news stories that got stuck in the practice post and were otherwise...

If Detroit Red Wings Choose to Upgrade Their Defense, Wade Redden Could be the Perfect Fit

The Detroit Red Wings, fresh off an offseason which saw the team lose two steady defenders in Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart, might have identified the blue line as their biggest area of need for an upgrade quickly this season. In recent months, flashy back end names such as Keith Yandle, Jay Bouwmeester and Zach Bogosian have come up in rumors. Each one of those defenders, however...

Captain Zetterberg

To the surprise of no one, Zetterberg is the new captain of the Detroit Red Wings. Hank is now the 3rd Red Wing to wear the C since 1986. Pretty remarkable to think that since that time, there have been 5 U.S. presidents but only 3 Red Wings have worn the C. From the Red Wings Twitter feed: "It means a lot being a captain and being the captain of this organization. Looking...
