Found March 07, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
from Carlos Manorrez of the Detroit Free Press, Ian White has not asked the Detroit Red Wings to trade him. But he has asked general manager Ken Holland and coach Mike Babcock how he figures into the team’s plans. White is scheduled to be a healthy scratch for the fifth straight game tonight, against the visiting Edmonton Oilers. He hasn’t played since he was minus-2 in 23 shifts against the Vancouver Canucks on Feb. 24. “No, we’re not there yet. We’re not there yet,” White said of trade talk after today's morning skate. “But I was just voicing this is game five, and you play so many games in such a fast period that it can get away from you pretty quick. You look, after the weekend, it’ll be seven straight games if you don’t play. continued The defense certainly has played better since White was removed from the rotation, so is there any reason to change it now?

Niklas Kronwall scores with assist from backboards (Video)

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall scored a goal in Tuesday night's game against the Colorado Avalanche with an assist from the backboards at Joe Louis Arena. Kronwall deliberately sent his slapshot from near the blue line just wide of the Avalanche net, but the puck bounced hard off the backboards towards the goal crease, then off the foot of Avalanche goalie Jean...

Kindl, Emmerton score in Wings shutout win

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have some excellent hockey players but they don't have a Steven Stamkos or a Sidney Crosby. You don't get those players when you don't have the No. 1 overall pick in the NHL Entry Draft, which the Wings haven't had because they've made the playoffs 21 straight seasons. Crosby and Stamkos currently lead the league in scoring....

Is Pavel Datsyuk Getting Enough Help? Answering Some Key Detroit Red Wings Questions

The Detroit Red Wings are in for another fight to the finish this season. They currently sit in the middle of the playoff race in the Western Conference, but just six points separate the third and 12th place teams.

Red Wings’ Niklas Kronwall tells Craig Custance why the NHLPA accepted NHL’s realignment proposal

Very interesting stuff: Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall spoke to ESPN's Craig Custance for an ESPN Insider blog entry, and the Red Wings' NHLPA player representative told Custance that the NHL provided the PA with multiple mock schedules which illustrated the travel teams would have to face, satisfying the players at least to the point that they chose to consent to the...

Kristen Bell is a big Detroit Red Wings fan (pictures)

There’s little doubt that, when it comes to adorability, Mega Detroit Red Wings fan Kristen Bell gives just about every actress in Hollywood a run for their money. Besides being one of the most sought after actresses in Hollywood, with roles in movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek, Ms. Bell rose to fame and garnered critical praise as the title role on...

Kronwall In The Norris Hunt

Scott Burnside and Pierre LeBrun hand out their midseason awards and LeBrun picks Niklas Kronwall for the Norris Trophy. Kind of amazing when you have a list that doesn't include Shea Weber or Drew Doughty, but I think it's only a matter of time over the last half of the season that those guys will find their way into the conversation. Both players are playing much...

Mark Spizzirri: GAMEDAY: Oilers vs. Red Wings

Make sure to follow Mark on Twitter! This matchup always has special meaning for me given my long-standing allegiance to the Oilers and my father's die-hard love of the Red Wings. It goes without saying that he has enjoyed the past 20 years much more than I have, notwithstanding the 2006 playoffs and Edmonton's first round upset of the Red Wings. Nevertheless, Detroit...

Red Wings-Oilers wrap-up: at the halfway point, Wings find grit, secondary scoring and defense

"What a difference a couple of days make" might be the theme of this abbreviated 48-games-in-99-nights season, and the Red Wings have certainly learned as much. After dropping 5 straight games, the Wings have won five of their past seven games, including a 2-1 win over Colorado on Tuesday and Thursday night's 2-0 win over Edmonton. With 24 games in the books, the...

Richard Cloutier: Insert Food Here

The Oilers should be hungry tonight when they face the Detroit Chicken Wings. Will they have them Buffalo style? Honey Garlic, BBQ favor? So many choices. You know for sure Pavel Datsyuk will be spicey. Now days, there's nothing much to see or to do in Detroit, so the bored Oilers might as well have something to eat while they're there. Tonight's Line-up I'm not...

Red Wings-Avalanche wrap-up and overnight report: it wasn’t pretty, but a win’s two crucial points

The Detroit Red Wings neither started nor finished particularly strongly during what was sometimes less than an aesthetically-pleasing 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche, but the Wings' company line after the game involved two points of emphasis: 1. They weren't thrilled with the fact that Jimmy Howard had to stop 36 shots, including 16 in the third period, nor were they...

Oilers-Red Wings Preview

A fortunate bounce helped the Detroit Red Wings extend a successful stretch, but they haven't needed too much luck in recent matchups with Edmonton. The Red Wings will try to continue their dominance over the slumping Oilers in Thursday night's finale of a three-game homestand. Detroit (11-8-4) is 4-1-1 since Feb. 23, and benefited from Niklas Kronwall's unusual goal...

Rapping Red Wings: Detroit Knows Blackhawks’ Streak Doesn’t Ensure Playoff Success

Peaking early. It’s one of the biggest dangers in sports, especially during the regular season. Remarkably, the Chicago Blackhawks haven’t tasted hockey adversity in three months, and naturally, they’re getting all the best headlines.
