Dylan Larkin Selected No. 15 Overall by the Detroit Red Wings: Grading the Pick

It’s not often the Detroit Red Wings pick in the top half of the NHL Draft, but they took advantage of the opportunity Friday by nabbing center — and soon-to-be Michigan Wolverine — Dylan Larkin. “I’m not just saying this, but I really do want to get drafted by Detroit,” Larkin told the Detroit Free Press. “I think it would be cool. Obviously, grew up watching them...

At least Wings know they can compete with Bruins

DETROIT -- What does it mean that the Red Wings beat the Boston Bruins in three of the four games they played in the regular season? Not nothing, but not a whole lot either. "If we could take three wins with us into the series, it would be great, but we can't," defenseman Danny DeKeyser said. "Those are thrown out the window. The first to four wins." Goaltender...

Red Wings morning ramble: on the youth movement and ‘going forward’

I'm not up to full speed yet (had a bit of setback), but I really adored this quip from a certain coach who, you and I have been told, both wanted Daniel Cleary back and did indeed tell the media that the "veterans" would win roster battles by default when some five-and-a-half months ago--made after the Wings' 4-2 win over Toronto, to the Toronto Sun's Terry...

Helm Leads Detroit Red Wings Over Maple Leafs, 4-2

  Detroit Red Wings take critical game over the Toronto Maple Leafs in regulation, 4-2. For going up against a team that played the night prior, the Red Wings looked fairly flat to start the first period. Their plays were sloppy and they had a hard time mucking up Toronto’s speed through the neutral zone. The Leafs would get on the board first with the lone goal of the first,...

Red Wings-Maple Leafs quick take: Helm, Howard and Wings earn their must-win win

It took the Red Wings a full period to pull their heads out of their asses--after dropping 3 straight games--but the boys in red, the boys of the terrible power play and self-defeating tendencies and baffling drop pass syndrome--managed to both rid themselves of some bad habits, put the Maple Leafs out of the playoff hunt and at least keep pace with those Gosh-Dang-*#$%@...

Teemu Pulkkinen’s heading back to Grand Rapids as Darren Helm’s returned to Detroit’s lineup

The Red Wings no longer have a "roster emergency" because Darren Helm was fit to play today, so the team had to send someone down to Grand Rapids. They chose to send the Griffins' leading goal-scorer back to the AHL as the Griffins attempt to defend their Calder Cup Championship, and playing on the fourth line wasn't necessarily in Teemu Pulkkinen's job description...
