I'm sure that Holland, Jim Nill and the Wings' braintrust (Nick Barnowski reported that capologist Ryan Martin was in Grand Rapids to watch University of Minnesota defenseman Ben Marshall play in the NCAA regionals) spent about five minutes celebrating a signing that SI's Allan Muir accurately described was a "water is also wet" move to the rest of the hockey world before catching the Chicago Blackhawks' 2-1 loss to Anaheim and the now playoff-bubble-bound Columbus Blue Jackets' 6-4 win over Calgary(!)... But I ho...

Red Wings-Sharks quick take: self-inflicted wounds leave a ‘bitter taste’

In theory, the Detroit Red Wings and their fans should be happy as clams this morning. The Wings handed the Ducks back-to-back losses, took out the Coyotes, and, aside from Johan Franzen's "lower-body injury," mostly avoided the injury bug (see: Jakub Kindl taking a knee-on-knee hit and not getting seriously hurt) during their West Coast swing. The Wings took 6 of 8...
