Wings' worries as season nears

Regardless of what happens during their last two preseason games, the Red Wings have played an uneven brand of hockey.

Khan: Stephen Weiss’s absence from the 3rd period of Red Wings’ win over TO was precautionary

Mike Augello: Old Concerns In Loss To Red Wings, Preseason Finale Leafs Vs Detroit

The Maple Leafs lineup in their 5-2 loss to the Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit closely resembles the group that will suit up in Montreal next Tuesday and in spite of the contest being their seventh exhibition game in two weeks, there were some warning signs for the club for a season with high expectations.

Will the Red Wings have to split up Datsyuk and Zetterberg?

No I do not mean split them up as in a trade, I mean split them up on a line. The plan going in to the pre season was with the addition of Weiss datsyuk and Zetterberg can play on a line all year long however so far this preseason it doesn’t look like that is going to happen. I wrote a piece earlier and I touched on the 2nd line a bit but I’m here now to take more thenjust...

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.
