Red Wings overnight report: On Pulkkinen, Jurco and good and bad prospect news

Red Wings players are slowly but surely filtering back into town, and within a day or two, they'll be spotted skating informally in Troy as well as closer to the Joe, but for the present moment, Tomas Tatar's autograph-signing in Bratslava this Thursday's the closest thing we'll get to a "media availability" until the post-Labor Day practices begin.

Teemu Pulkkinen Is Overrated

Teemu Pulkkinen is overrated. I’m going to tell you why. Prospects only have value because they are expected to develop and become NHL caliber players. A prospect has value for two reasons, they have a high ceiling or a high floor. A high ceiling means this player has a ton of potential and a high floor means that barring any accidents(Igor Grigorenko) this player will be no worse...

Red Wings playoff prospect news: Griffins, Texas Stars prepare to do battle this Thursday

The Grand Rapids Griffins will head to the Lone Star State to battle the Texas Stars in the second round of the AHL playoffs this week--as the Grand Rapids Press's Peter J. Wallner notes, the AHL employs a 2-3-and-2 series format, too, so it must be mentioned that "home ice advantage" is interpreted a little differently there--and the Detroit Free Press's George...

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...

Red Wings-Oilers quick take: ugly is sometimes beautiful

The Detroit Red Wings' 2-1 shootout win over the Edmonton Oilers was the LIVING EMBODIMENT of an ugly win, but in a month, it could be a beautiful, beautiful thing for a team that's now -20 in terms of goal differential in the 3rd period and managed to fire more pucks wide or into Oilers players (35) than it did on Viktor Fasth. With nine players injured, the lines shaken...

I don’t know if he’s scored a fluke goal all season. “They’ve been slap shots, just blowing it past...
