Red Wings evening ramble: the ‘organic option,’ centers and prospects shopping around

Because I'd rather post a set of articles instead of sitting on them, you'll have to pardon my burnt-out-bluntness. However: Aside from the whole concept that the Washington Capitals might not want to trade Mike Green to begin with--and it doesn't sound like Capitals coach Barry Trotz is packing Green's bags--never mind the Wings' historical tendendies to not...

That Darn Salary Cap

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, When you look at what Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks got in their new eight-year contracts Wednesday and compare this to what the top players were getting back in 2004 before the salary cap, it just might be that the NHL Player’s Association has outlived it’s usefulness. While it may sound to many...

Schneider gets long-term deal

The Cory Schenider era is now fully underway after the goalie signed a long-term deal with the New Jersey Devils Wednesday. The contract is worth a reported $6 million per season according to Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record and takes away the ugly possibility that Schneider could leave as an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 season.

Red Wings afternoon news: Blashill on Detroit Sports 105.1; on Marchenko and Chase Perry

I really wish that the whole Mike Green-Tyler Myers fandango had picked another week to serve as a Red Wings-strike-out-on-free-agents distraction. The Wings' summer development camp was a grind-and-a-half, but it was also a fascinating experience, and the Red Wings' prospects have been Tweeting "heading home" Tweets which thank the most important people in Traverse...

Jim Rutherford Made The Right Moves

from Sam Page of Sports Illustrated, Rutherford’s strategy for fixing this hasn’t so much been to bolster the bottom half as to erase the traditional top six/bottom six divide completely. His first move—trading Neal for Hornqvist and Spaling—typified this mentality. He parted with the team’s best winger for two forwards whose odd skill sets allowed them to play all...

The Winnipeg Jets Off-Season Game Plan

from Scott Cullen of TSN, Many of Winnipeg's core players are in their twenties, in and around their prime years, so while that's reason for optimism, it's also reason for some urgency to take advantage of the kind of production being provided by the likes of Andew Ladd, Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien.

Red Wings development camp 2014, day 5: outside takes

The last entry that I posted, my wrap-up of the Red Wings' summer development camp, is the first entry in which I've officially maxed out the blog's content-or-character count on writing--ever.
