The Majors Detroit:
Jan Mursak waived
According to Helen St. James of the Detroit Free Press, the Wings waived oft-injured forward Jan Mursak.
Ken Holland stated that the move was done to get Mursak more playing time however James points out that if that extra playing time comes with another team the Wings can live with it.
“He needs to play,” general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press. If that ends up being for another organization, the Wings can live with it.
Mursak has had a tough time dealing with injuries throughout his NHL career. After breaking an ankle during the preseason last year Mursak was sidelined once again with injury this season and only appeared in his second game of the year Thursday against Columbus.
If Mursak clears waivers he will be sent to Grand Rapids.
Quincey day-to-day with a leg injury
So what’s the theme of the Red Wings’ 2013 season? You guessed it, INJURIES!

Slightly strange news from ESPN's Pierre LeBrun regarding Red Wings forward Jan Mursak:
Detroit also places Jan Mursak on waivers today
— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) February 22, 2013
I'm guessing that the Wings want Mursak to get playing time, but potentially losing a warm body given the injury parade of late seems strange.
The Free Press's Helene...
The Red Wings-Blue Jackets game is being officiated as something of a farce tonight, and that has nothing to do with the following Tweet from the Detroit News's John Niyo.
During the Artem Anismov collision, the Wings (who found out that Carlo Colaiacovo may not be as close to returning as once thought today) lost another defenseman:
Meanwhile, it looked like Kyle...
DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Red Wings have put Jan Mursak on waivers, giving teams until noon Saturday to claim the 25-year-old left wing.
Mursak has played in only two games for Detroit this season. He had a goal and two assists in 25 games in 2011-12.
The Yugoslavia-born Mursak has two goals and two assists in 46 NHL games, all with Detroit. The Red Wings drafted him in the sixth...
DETROIT You see it so often when the playoffs roll around but it's nearly as true in this shortened NHL season the goaltender is the most important player.
For the injury-depleted Detroit Red Wings, that is more true than ever.
True, Wings goalie Jimmy Howard can't help the team's struggling power play, but if he prevents the other team from scoring, the Wings will...
This stirkes me as a particularly timely reminder. DetroitRedWings.com's Bill Roose reminds us that new Red Wings forward Jordin Tootoo is signing autographs tomorrow at Hockeytown Authentics to give "Team Tootoo" some Michigan legs:
Though more then 10 years has passed since his brother’s suicide, the topic is just too sensitive for Jordin Tootoo to discuss...
Good win tonight. These recaps are a heck of a lot more fun to write than the losses. Though Nashville controlled the play for what seemed like the majority of the game, Howard was the difference, much like the last win against the Kings. I didn’t see any one player play poorly tonight, but I saw plenty of guys give their all.
More after the jump:
Murph said that Babcock...
This cannot be shown, masturbated to enough:
Pavel Datsyuk goes through an entire team for a coast-to-coast goal. You usually only see that **** in SEGA NHL.
Some of the better video’s that get unearthed on the internet because of YouTube are ones from way back when, like this one of Detroit Red Wings legendary right-winger Gordie Howe. Back in the early 70′s, Mr Hockey appeared on the popular game show ‘What’s My Line?’ It was a show where contestants were blind-folded and given a set a questions to figure out who a celebrity...
The Detroit Red Wings now sit at 0-3-and-2 since their rope-a-dope win over the Los Angeles Kings way back on February 18th, thanks to a 3-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.
The game-winning goal was a microcosm of the season thus far: with time ticking down, the Wings pressed deep, and instead of shooting, Damien Brunner tried to pass the puck to the slot,...
The Wings are 0-3-2 in their last five games. During that stretch they’ve scored just one power play goal and have blown two-goal leads three times. DET's special teams may take the prize for oxymoron of the year; the PP is beyond pathetic at 12.8% (28). The PK is just as bad, or worse, at 75.7% (25). Assuming, on average, DET are assessed 4 minors a game (I don't...
The Nashville Predators were shutout once again for the second straight night as they fall 4-0 to the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.
Unable to convert on the many chances they had, the Predators couldn’t put a shot past Jimmy Howard, who recorded his first shutout of the season by stopping all 33 shots that came his way.
Not only did Nashville lose the game, but...
The Nashville Predators fly to the Motor City the day after being shutout by the Vancouver Canucks, 1-0 at Bridgestone Arena. Saturday night, the Preds take on their rival Detroit Red Wings for the second time in three games. Nashville was able to get the best of Detroit in overtime Tuesday, but the Red Wings will look to change that.
The Preds have a record of 8-5-5 and ranked...
Anisimov was tied up with Kyle Quincey behind the Detroit net, Quincey fell on him and it appeared Anisimov's head hit the ice pretty hard.
Report from Larry Murphy who is between the benches is Anisimov was alert when taken off the ice.
