Even during the last full week of July, I hate toe engage in any sort of speculation, Arthur Staple’s reports that current New York Islanders defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky is filing a grievance with the NHLPA, asking them to negate his trade to the Islanders per his no-trade clause as a member of the Anaheim Ducks, most certainly has Ken Holland’s ears perked up. Puck Daddy’s Sean Leahy and, via RedWingsFeed, the Score’s Jake Goldsbie have more on the situation if you’re interested, but I’ll spell it out from a Wings fan’s perspective: Continue reading "Red Wings mid-day quickies: engaging in a little speculation and a little debunking"

Red Wings GM Ken Holland tells Pleiness that he’s happy with his team…but plans on making moves

Red Wings GM Ken Holland was bound to say something more than he offered the Free Press’s Helene St. James regarding what was all but certainly a better offer for Rick Nash than what the New York Rangers ended up giving Columbus, which declined doing business with Detroit… #RedWings GM Ken Holland: “I talked to Scott Howson a number of times, we did make an offer for Rick...

Red Wings overnight report: on Jurco’s uncomfortable summer, free agency, the CBA and Bertuzzi-Moore

Most of the NHL’s top prospects have little to worry about in terms of finding a place to play for the 2012-2013 season.

Red Wings overnight report: on cap sense and sensability, Alan Quine and Marek Tvrdon

I had an, “I can’t believe I was dumb enough to wait until now to spit it out” moment earlier this morning (okay, so it’s the middle of the night for most of you. It’s the end of the day for me): after reading some of your takes on MLive’s Ansar Khan’s report that Ken Holland’s hoping that Shane Doan’s “Tour of Potential but Unlikely Employers” will make a stop...

Detroit Red Wings Offseason Update: Filling the Lidstrom Void

By Rhys Richards (@RREsq) Last week, the Detroit Red Wings took the first step to address a thin defensive corps by signing restricted free agent Kyle Quincey to a two-year deal worth $7.55 million. After being selected by Detroit 132nd overall in the fourth round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Quincey has scored 18 goals and 95 career points with Detroit, Los Angeles, and Colorado...

Surprise! Lubomir Visnovsky Does Not Want To Play For the Islanders

The New York Islanders are continually among the worst in the league that is ran by an incompetent owner in an awful arena. And that's without even getting into the fact that this team might not even exist 4 years from now. So it's not difficult to discern why the Islanders have trouble bringing in quality players via free agency. In fact, when they claimed Evgeni Nabokov...

Khan: Shane Doan’s on a grand tour, and KH wants Doan to stop in Detroit to talk to the Red Wings

Via RedWingsFeed, MLive’s Ansar Khan offers some welcome relief to what has otherwise been a bit of a frustrating week and weekend for Red Wings fans, stating that Red Wings GM Ken Holland wants Shane Doan to come to Detroit as the unrestricted free agent forward continues his “grand tour” of possible suitors’ rinks and visits with their respective front office personnel...

Visnovsky Wants Trade Voided

During the draft the New York Islanders acquired Lubomir Visnovsky from the Anaheim Ducks for a second round draft pick in 2013.  Visnovsky is a very talented player who deserved Norris Trophy consideration in 2011.  Last season was not nearly as strong and there are rumors that he is no longer as dedicated to his career and starting to look forward to retirement.  One Islanders...

Steve Palumbo: Lubomir Visnovsky Questioning Validity of Trade to Islanders

Former Anaheim Ducks defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky has filed a grievance with the NHLPA claiming the trade that sent him to the New York Islanders in exchange for a pick at last months entry draft should not have been allowed because his no-trade cause was still in effect.

Todd Cordell: A Look at The New Jersey Devils Goaltending System + Notes on Visnovsky

Many people are under the impression that because the New Jersey Devils don't have a huge name in their goaltending system (i.e. Jonathan Bernier or Jacob Markstrom) that their system isn't good, but that perception is false. Today I'll take a look at some of the Devils goaltending prospects and touch on the latest news regarding Lubomir Visnovsky and the New York Islanders...

Red Wings mid-day news: fanning on free agents, asking Ansar and re-selling unsold tickets

Annoyed, frustrated, irked by players declining invites to play here, and more than a little bit scared. That sentence pretty much sums up how the vast majority of Red Wings fans feel at the midpoint of a summer in which Ken Holland, Jim Nill, Ryan Martin, Mike Babcock and even Mike Ilitch have made pitches to and for Ryan Suter, Zach Parise, Rick Nash, Shea Weber and possibly as...

Most consecutive complete games by a goaltender: Glenn Hall, 502 Hall took the ice for the Detroit Red Wings on opening night in 1955-56 and played all 70 games.
