Red Wings overnight report: there ain’t no easy way ‘home’ for Sergei Fedorov

I didn’t need Jeff Riger or any of you to remind Red Wings fans that Sergei Fedorov remains an incredibly controversial player. On my second-to-last night in Grand Marais, I mentioned his inclusion in the Winter Classic Alumni Showdown, and one uncle talked about Fedorov as instrumental to the three Cups that the Wings won with a player “who could dominate like Bobby Orr,”...

Upper Michigan weather—it’s about 65 degrees here and we’ve got a chilly wind blowing in off Lake Superior at a good 20 miles an hour—has me wearing jeans and a flannel shirt a couple hundred miles north of a Metro Detroit area pushing 100 degrees, so I thought I’d wander into internet range and deliver you this Tweet from RedWingsFeed and then toss off some charity hockey...
