Nightmare on Helm Street:
As we wait for more UFA news to trickle in...I thought it would be a good idea to keep you abreast of the US National Team developments.
But only because we have three players from the Detroit Red Wings organ-i-zation that have received invites to the camp.
I would assume that the goalie was an obvious one...as Team USA will actually have the strongest trio between the pipes out of any country in the world. However...could you tell me which forward and which defensemen would be invited off the top of your head in less than three seconds?
Make the jump to find out who got the call from Uncle Sam (the good kind)...
Surprised? Maybe at first...but you really shouldn't be when you think about it. Abdelkader has proved that he can be a most useful mammal when put on a line with high-end talent. He is finding his Sparty Scoring Touch again and provides some much...

After staying with the Ottawa Senators since being drafted in 1994, Daniel Alfredsson and the Senators have parted ways. Earlier this month, Alfredsson signed a one-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings.

It's been a week since the Red Wings' summer development camp wrapped up in Traverse City, MI, and this week, Jared Coreau should receive medical clearance to finally take shots in game-like situations after undergoing shoulder surgery in Detroit this past April.
Watching Coreau work through drills with Wings goalie coach Jim Bedard was both fascinating and frustrating...
Since my return from Detroit Red Wings Skill and Development Camp in Traverse City, Mich., last week, Ive constantly been asked which player impressed me the most.
At first, I'd say defenseman Ryan Sproul or forwards Martin Frk and Anthony Mantha.
But my mind keeps going back to Jiri Fischer.
Fischer hasn't played an NHL game since Nov. 21, 2005. On that night at Joe...
Good news citizens of Detroit. Your city might be bankrupt but at least you’ll have a brand spanking new NHL arena in the neighborhood a few years from now.
The Michigan Strategic Fund has approved $450 million worth of bonds that will finance the construction of a $650 million project that just so happens to include a new arena for the Red Wings. The project is also aimed at investing...
