Red Wings fans can be total trash too

Red Wings fans are some of the best in the NHL. Unfortunately though you have those certain exceptions like this guy who takes what could be a somewhat humorous take on a ’69’ jersey and just make it trashy. @bustedcoverage Spotted at a Mudhens Game. Stay classy Wings fans — Hunter (@Eye467) May 4, 2015 Two questions that come to mind. Why would...

Have the Wings had enough of Stephen Weiss?

What do the Red Wings do with Stephen Weiss this summer? After signing a 5-year, $24.5M contract in 2013 to fill a second line center void, Weiss’ time in the Motor City has been hampered by injury and disappointment when he’s managed to hit the ice. When you further break down the numbers with Weiss, that $24.5M has turned into 86 games lost to injury and healthy scratches...

Red Wings Senior VP on Anthony Mantha: “We had such high hopes for him”

If there’s one thing the Red Wings definitely have going for them it’s the strength of their minor league system. With talent in the pool, the Red Wings ranked fourth according to Hockey’s Future heading into the 2014-15 season with only the Sabres, Flames and Islanders ahead of them. Apparently though there seems to be some disillusionment with one of their top prospects...

The future of the Detroit Red Wings

It’s all over. In a blink of an eye the Detroit Red Wings 2014-15 campaign is finished. The sour taste of a scoreless Game 7 effort is still lingering in the air days later. What a rollercoaster of a ride it was. It started off so well. They were the last remaining NHL team not to lose back-to-back games in regulation. It ended so poorly. The brutal March collapse and the early...

Don Cherry advises Mike Babcock to coach in San Jose

Where will Mike Babcock coach next season? That’s the question everyone has been debating since the Detroit Red Wings were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Thanks for the Memories Mike Babcock…

I’ll say it. I didn’t think I would be saying this in October of last year but after ten season of solidifying his Hall of Fame credentials, maybe now is the time for Mike Babcock  and the Detroit Red Wings to part ways. I say this with no anger, the man has more than earned […]

Jimmy Howard says he won’t request a trade from the Red Wings

There was a changing of the guard in the crease for the Red Wings during the playoffs as Petr Mrazek surpassed Jimmy Howard as the top goaltender in Detroit. Mrazek’s solid numbers combined with unreal saves such as this one led to speculation regarding Howard’s future with the team. The trade rumors haven’t been squashed entirely, but they have been quieted some now that...

Red Wings fan sets Lightning flag on fire, charged with arson

Video: This Petr Mrazek stick save was the best

YouTube Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek made 27 saves Monday night in Game Six, none more ridiculous than this stick save on Brian Boyle.  It’s just too bad it didn’t mean anything in the end as the Lightning won 5-2 to take the series to a seventh and final game in Tampa Wednesday night. But come on, this save is bonkers.   Here’s the entire play:

Red Wings Goalie Petr Mrazek Makes Save Of The Year Vs. Lightning (GIF)

Petr Mrazek made the save of the playoffs Monday night. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for the Detroit Red Wings goaltender, as the Tampa Bay Lightning forced a Game 7 by pushing four goals past him en route to a 5-2 win. We don’t know how he did this, and won’t attempt to put this into words. Just watch. Petr Mrazek with the save of the year! @DetroitRedWings

Jon Cooper and the rest of the NHL need to stop whining

Tampa coach Jon Cooper accuses Detroit of cheating

Tampa Bay head coach Jon Cooper might have just given the Red Wings some bulletin board material. The Lightning bench boss told the Tampa Bay Times that the Red Wings are the league experts in interfering with opposing players without getting called for the required penalty."There are 30 teams in the league, and nobody does it more than the Detroit Red Wings, hands down," Cooper...

Detroit Red Wings weekly: One win away to bypass the storm

The Detroit Red Wings have a chance to silence the critics and put their end of regular season collapse in the rear-view mirror. All it takes is one more win and they have two shots to do it.

Video: Pavel Datsyuk is a funny dude.

YouTube Pavel Datsyuk is a funny guy.  He has some of the best (if not the best) hands in the NHL.  He can dangle like no other. He’s as gentlemanly as they come. They might as well re-name the Lady Byng trophy the Pav.  He can snipe when he needs to.  He dishes helpers like a philanthropist. But as good a hockey player as he is, he may be equally as funny.  YouTuber “The...
