Red Wings overnight report, part 2: reflecting on the Red Wings prospects’ 3rd place game win

I've watched the Red Wings' prospects play three games over the course of four nights and practice four times over the course of five days. I've watched Jeff Blashill--who will now assume a supporting role on Mike Babcock's staff when training camp begins on Friday--and a large cast of associate/assistant coaches take 24 players (8 of them free agent try-outs) into...

‘Mantha Mania’ note: No #39 for tonight’s 3rd place game vs. Carolina

I hate to feed the "Mantha Mania," but Anthony Mantha skipped the Red Wings prospects' morning skate, though he wasn't wearing any ice bags, nor did he look hobbled, and it appears that Mantha won't be playing in tonight's 3rd place game against the Carolina Hurricanes (6:30 PM at Centre Ice Arena's West Rink): Here are today's lines for...

Setback has Daniel Alfredsson's future in question

The news on Daniel Alfredsson is not good: He hasn't skated in 10 days and, at this point, isn't expected to be at Detriot Red Wings training camp. The Wings want the superbly smart and talented Swedish forward back and are prepared to give him the time he needs to listen to his body. But after four months of nursing his tender back, it is disappointing for both sides that...
