Video: Pavel Datsyuk is a funny dude.

YouTube Pavel Datsyuk is a funny guy.  He has some of the best (if not the best) hands in the NHL.  He can dangle like no other. He’s as gentlemanly as they come. They might as well re-name the Lady Byng trophy the Pav.  He can snipe when he needs to.  He dishes helpers like a philanthropist. But as good a hockey player as he is, he may be equally as funny.  YouTuber “The...

Detroit Red Wings Round 1: Catching lightning in a bottle

Just like clockwork, the Detroit Red Wings (43-25-14) find themselves back in the playoffs. Another year, another shot at the Stanley Cup. While that’s great and all, I have been getting this vibe recently that a majority of Red Wings’ fans have already given up on this season.

Pavel Datsyuk scored the goal of the year that didn’t count (VIDEO)

Vine Pavel Datsyuk had played all of two and a half periods in 2014 and used some magic (and some decent hands) to provide the most ridiculous goal of the young NHL season. Unfortunately, it didn’t count as some referees like to over-call games.  This was disallowed because of a questionable (aka bogus) goalie interference call on Justin Abdelkader. This would have tied the game...

Do the Detroit Red Wings have a plan?

NHL free agency began on July 1st and many players have already signed for one team or another. We’ve seen Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik move to Washington, Ryan Miller sign with the Canucks and Paul Stastny become a St. Louis Blue. What we haven’t seen is any big name player sign in Detroit. Detroit is simply not the destination it once was. There is no Steve Yzerman or Nick...
