Found September 30, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
And now we wait for the Red Wings' medical evaluations during/after today's practice to determine the team's remaining cap-and-23-man-roster-compliant moves... 3pm ET, 5pm ET, those are the times that have been floating around 4 teams 2 have rosters set. Hearing now 5pm, at least at this moment. — Kukla's Korner (@kuklaskorner) September 30, 2013 This is not super news: Nyquist not on ice at practice. Which leads to speculation he's heading to GR to start season. No Emmerton on ice either. — Chuck Pleiness (@wingsfrontman) September 30, 2013 Continue reading "Red Wings Monday practice news: Red Wings temporariliy demote Nyquist, send Mrazek to GR"

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...

Cory Emmerton determined to make meaningful contribution on Red Wings

What a whirlwind this week has been for Cory Emmerton already. The forward was put on waivers by the Red Wings Sunday. No team claimed him and so he thought he was headed to the minor leagues. But he wound up staying with the Red Wings when forward Patrick Eaves was placed on the long-term injured-list. Tuesday morning Emmerton found himself centering Mikael Samuelsson and Drew...

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...

New season, new conference for Red Wings

DETROIT -- The Red Wings are about to embark on a whole new adventure -- the wild, wild East. A year after the lockout-shortened season had the Wings playing only Western Conference teams, they're now in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. The new schedule means that the Wings will still see their former rivals from the West, but they won't be spending quite...

Red Wings’ parent company makes personnel moves

I wasn't quite sure what to do with this one, so I left the press release in the practice post, but Crain's Detroit Business's Bill Shea, via RedWingsFeed, offers some context as to what significant moves by Ilitch Holdings today mean for the Wings' future: Detroit-based Ilitch Holdings Inc. said today it has hired Steve Marquardt away from Detroit's Compuware...

Red Wings Injury Report:Darren Helm to go on LTIR

It looks like Darren Helm of the Detroit Red Wings will continue his injury struggles this coming season. According to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press, the center, known for his speed will start the season on Long Term Injured Reserve (LTIR). This is due to separate back and groin issues. What being on LTIR means is he can be out for either 24 days or 10 games. General...

Just like the Winter Classic, Red Wings ‘Alumni Showdown’ tickets unlikely to be publicly sold

This should come as no surprise, per the CBC news and RedWingsFeed: Some hockey fans vying for a seat at the Alumni Showdown Game between retired Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs as part of this year’s Winter Classic may be out of luck. Over the New Year’s Eve weekend, there will be two alumni games during Winter Fest in the lead up to the classic, featuring today’s...

2013-14 Detroit Red Wings Preview: Motoring THROUGH the Eastern Conference

Is it just me or did the NHL offseason just fly by? It seriously feels like we just got finished talking about a heartbreaking Game 7 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Finals and now we find ourselves on the eve of making our Eastern Conference debut against the Buffalo Sabres. Hey though, I’m not complaining… Like any other Red Wings season I’m...

Mark Spizzirri: Let the abuse of the LTIR begin...Emmerton on waivers

Make sure to follow Mark on Twitter! Prior to getting started, word came down as I was penning this blog from none other than TSN's Bob McKenzie that Cory Emmerton of the Red Wings has been placed on waivers this morning. DET puts Cory Emmerton on waivers.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) September 29, 2013 A slight surprise in my opinion to see Emmerton placed...

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 Tuesday practice post II: on Datsyuk, Emmerton and Alfredsson

I had a feeling that all the Tweets from the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association luncheon which Ken Holland, Kris Draper and Ryan Martin attended would max out the first practice post, and they did, so here's Part II. MLive's Ansar Khan posted today's practice lines... Continue reading "Red Wings Tuesday practice post II: on Datsyuk, Emmerton and Alfredsson"

Sabres-Red Wings Preview

With veteran Daniel Alfredsson in the mix, the Detroit Red Wings are eager to begin play in the Eastern Conference. The 40-year-old winger hopes to make what could be his only season in Detroit a memorable one starting Wednesday night when the Red Wings try to continue their home success against the rebuilding Buffalo Sabres. Playing its last year in the Western Conference, Detroit...

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...

Afternoon Line

... But there are warning signs. The core is an old one, with players like Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg, and Johan Franzen all in their 30s. Adding Alfredsson doesn't make them any younger, obviously, so the potential for major drop-offs and/or injuries is significant. -Sean McIndoe in his season preview at Grantland, where you can read more on all the NHL teams...

Red Wings early overnight report: more season previews, Datsyuk, Alfredsson/Weiss profiles, etc.

The Red Wings begin their 2013-2014 regular season campaign when they host the Buffalo Sabres tomorrow night (8 PM EDT, NBCSN only), and the season must be near if Mike Valenti and Terry Foster are asking fans whether the Pistons or Red Wings are "more intriguing." Building upon the overnight report and today's pair of practice posts, we haven't witnessed avalanches...
