SERGEI FEDOROV NEWS

What if the Red Wings traded Steve Yzerman in the mid 90′s?

With the Red Wings on the eve of their 23rd straight playoff appearance (I was going into second grade by the way) you can’t help but be cliché and reminisce about the past seasons leading up to tomorrow’s game against the Boston Bruins. The disappointment in 93, 94, 95 and 96 with playoff losses to Toronto, San Jose, New Jersey (Cup Finals) and Colorado respectively. Finally...

24 years of Karen Newman

Red Wings anthem singer Karen Newman's been on the job for 24 years now, and ahead of the playoffs, the Free Press's Carlos Monarrez kicks off what will become a cavalcade of, "I wish they did this kind of stuff all year" stories with a fitting tribute to Newman's longevity and humility: She began during Sergei Fedorov’s 1990-91 rookie season. ...

Regner: Wings should retire Fedorov's No. 91 next

The conversation really started to pick up steam late last week, when the Detroit Red Wings paid the highest honor to Nick Lidstrom by retiring his number. Lidstrom's No. 5 joined the immortals of the franchise -- Gordie Howe's No. 9, Steve Yzerman's No. 19, Ted Lindsay's No. 7, Terry Sawchuck's No. 1, Alex Delvecchio's No. 10 and Sid Abel's No. 12 --...

Roose: 4 former Red Wings inducted into Russian HHOF; no Fedorov, Kozlov or Konstantinov?

I wasn't quite sure how to handle this story from a Red Wings perspective, so I'll turn it over to DetroitRedWings.com's Bill Roose: The newly-formed Russian Hockey Hall of Fame used Monday’s off day in the Olympic hockey tournament to unveil the first 146 inductees, including four with ties to the Red Wings’ organization. Although the museum is more than...

Happy: Rooting for Russia now

Back in 1980, Vladislav Tretiak and Slava Fetisov represented everything we in the United States feared and hated. The Soviet Union -- those commie bastards -- had just invaded Afghanistan and certainly would annihilate us if we didn't possess the power to strike right back, assuring mutual destruction. Sending Tretiak to an early shower in Lake Placid, N.Y., then completing...

Determined Simmonds has blue-collar mentality for Flyers

Growing up in the outskirts of Toronto, Wayne Simmonds had a lot of red on his bedroom walls. He was a Detroit Red Wings fan in Maple Leafs country and idolized Sergei Fedorov. “I just liked his style,” Simmonds said. “He had all the flashy equipment, but he played the game the right way. They even threw him on defense for probably a quarter of the year one time and he was...

Red Wings mid-day news: on the WJC, the Griffins, staying warm and the spirt of the Winter Classic

A trio Red Wings prospect-related articles and a trio of Winter Classic-related articles merit mentioning in an entry separate from the Red Wings-Panthers game-day update post so that they don't get buried in said post. First and foremost, in the prospect department, part 1: The Wings' oldest prospect, 43-year-old Sergei Fedorov, did play for CSKA Moscow in their 4-3 OT...

Red Wings overnight report: on the Hockeytown Winter Festival, Sergei Fedorov and Christmas Wings

The Red Wings won't "take things outside" until New Year's Eve day, when they'll practice at Michigan Stadium (rather inconveniently, they're scheduled to practice at the same time that the Wings' pair of Alumni Showdown games with Toronto will take place in Detroit), but the Hockeytown Winter Festival unofficially kicks off tomorrow, when the four teams...
