I’ve read 3 articles today pertaining to Nicklas Lidstrom.  A piece about the Mike Babcock’s philosophy of allowing his players to have fun from the Globe and Mail, in light of their recent curling competition.  An article from the Toronto Star on Dustin Byfuglien’s emergence as a defenseman and the …

In a word: unacceptable.  I have nothing good to say about this game.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Niklas Kronwall (Bertuzzi, Hudler)
Dallas: Brad Richards (pp; Niskanen, Ribeiro); Loui Eriksson (Richards, Neal); Brenden Morrow (Ribeiro); James Neal (Richards, Daley)
– The forecheck showed up occasionally, but it wasn’t …

 game preview,game recap 25 September 2010

Red Wings hockey on my television.  It’s like an oasis in the middle of the desert that is the offseason.  I don’t care if it was pre-season.  It’s the Wings.  It’s hockey.
In the spirit that is the pre-season, this is just going to be a mish-mash of notes and thoughts, …

*Phew*
That’s really all I have to say.
Nicole from the Red Wings sent out an email confirming that Nick Lidstrom has signed a contract to return to the Wings for the 2010-2011 season.

I wanted to post up my three stars of the series for the Red Wings against the Coyotes, and kind of pick up again on this little weekly feature that I had done earlier in the season…

You gotta hand it to the kid. His first ever playoff series, …

 game recap 28 April 2010

(I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that the first thing that came to mind when I started writing this wrapup was “Phoenix Down.”  Clearly I’ve been playing too much Final Fantasy in my off time.)
Now that’s what I’m talking about.  I had faith in this team that they would bring …

 game recap 15 April 2010

Not exactly the way we wanted to see the Wings kick off the playoffs this year.  To top it off, the power blew in my side of the apartment building shortly after the game was over, and I sort of lost several of my thoughts that I wanted to post …

 game recap 6 March 2010

Well there’s one way to come back after the pathetic outing against Vancouver.  I’m pretty certain this was the first game all season that was labeled as a “must win” and the Wings actually came out and played like they knew it was important.  It was huge to get the …

Here are my picks for the Red Wings’ stars of the week for 1/25-1/31
#3: Nicklas Lidstrom
Nick shifted to a completely different gear this week, going 3-3-6 and +2.  Two of his goals were on the power play.  And he’s continued his rock-solid play on the blueline, as pretty much the …

 Uncategorized 30 January 2010

McCosky has an article today about the sudden salary cap crunch that the Wings find themselves in, or at least will, shortly.
He makes an interesting statement off the bat regarding The Perfect Human:
Holland could be looking at rebuilding half the team this summer, and all that’s at stake there is …
