Alfredsson also pocketed an assist in the Wings’ win. Detroit will wrap its preseason schedule on Saturday in Toronto, with plenty of regulars sitting out.

Surveying the Red Wings’ Sunday roster moves

While I was trying to get some sleep, the Red Wings got busy starting to clear roster space, placing Cory Emmerton on waivers and Darren Helm on the LTIR, demoting a gaggle of players to Grand Rapids (my gut feeling remains that Nathan Paetsch will be signed to a 2-way deal once the Wings back off the 50-man roster limit) and pondering other moves to knock the roster down from 25...

Red Wings recall a ‘B Team’s’ worth of players and prospects for Saturday

If you're heading to the Air Canada Centre to watch the Red Wings take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night (7 PM, CBC/NHL Network U.S.), you might want to know that the Red Wings' lineup that dominated Toronto en route to a 5-2 victory won't necessarily be the one skating at the Air Canada Centre...

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...

What The Wings May Do To Get Cap Compliant

from Ansar Khan of Mlive, If Emmerton clears at noon on Monday, he will be assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins. Either way, the move opens a roster spot and shaves $533,000 off the cap.

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.
