This entry starts with a disclaimer: this might be a little inelegant as I’m still kinda dippy from sleeping all of Thursday, and I’m on the clock to take the mom to a doctor’s appointment (again) today, so here goes: I’m glad that the Macomb Daily’s Chuck Pleiness confirmed that the Red Wings are indeed speaking to the Calgary Flames about Jay Bouwmeester, as MLive’s Brendan Savage reported.

Red Wings overnight report: putting a Bouw on trade talk, foreign language news and CBA gabba

Red Wings GM Ken Holland may or may not be talking through both sides of his mouth today, and that’s a good thing. While the Red Wings and the rest of the NHL’s teams have more or less chosen to close up shop in terms of shopping for free agents or making trades (as Paul posted, even the free agents looking for work understand that CBA issues are the biggest reason that even...

Savage: Red Wings are letting Tomas Holmstrom take his time in deciding whether to retire

I know that more than a few Red Wings fans have wondered why the team hasn’t made a decision as to whether sixteen forwards (including the as-yet-unsigned Justin Abdelkader) means that there’s no space for 39-year-old Tomas Holmstrom, but MLive’s Brendan Savage spoke to Ken Holland about the looming questions about Holmstrom’s future, and Holland suggested that the team...

Red Wings overnight report: charitable happenings, scattershot observations and even more CBA fun

This morning’s crop of news, both Red Wings-related and otherwise, is a little different than usual, even for the summertime, so let’s begin our little survey with Red Wings color commentator Mickey Redmond’s charity golf outing to benefit the Escanaba Area Junior Hockey Association at the Nahma Golf Club, where he spoke to the Escanaba Daily Press’s Justin Marietti about...

Red Wings add Paul Coffey, Mathieu Dandenault and Martin Lapointe to Winter Classic Alumni Showdown

Shades of Gretzky’s 99 All-Stars vs the Detroit Vipers in 95? It could happen again during a lockout

Back in 1994, during the first owners’ lockout, Red Wings fans were hockey-starved to say the least. I remember eventually attending a chunk of the Wings’ impromptu training camp at the Joe and being gobsmacked by—get this—Pavel Agarkov’s talent, and enjoying a, “Wow” moment as I stood on the Joe’s concrete floor as Scotty Bowman had the entire team taking a lap,...

Flames Exploring Jay Bouwmeester Trade With Red Wings Or Flyers?

The Calgary Flames are trying to figure out just exactly how expendable defenseman Jay Bouwmeester is after the team signed Dennis Wideman. Aside from deciding whether they can afford to trade Bouwmeester, the Flames also have to decipher whether or not they can afford to keep him, especially if the NHL lowers the salary cap whenever a new collective bargaining agreement...
