Quick Hits: 8/25

Eaves has a Luck Dragon - Patrick Eaves will champion the Detroit Red Wings team in support of the Michigan Humane Society.  Eaves will be the captain of the Red Wings team for the Mega March for Animals this year.  Eaves is obviously both a lover of dogs and land monsters because his dog is the biggest thing I've seen outside of Fantasia.

Red Wings GM Ken Holland in French: Losing Yzerman to Tampa was incredibly difficult - We all had trouble losing Stevie-Y to the Tampa Bay Lightning.  But - as George Malik of Snapshots reports - we weren't the only ones shocked by Yzerman's departure.  Ken Holland didn't see it coming either...and there isn't much that surprises ol' Tick Tock.

BY THE NUMBERS: Justin Abdelkader - Bill Roose of DetroitRedWings.com plays a fun little numbers game with Justin Abdelkader - the last of the RFAs to sign this off-season.  Abdelkader is quickly endearing himself to Detroit Red Wings fans, by not playing hard-ball and signing for fair-value (maybe even a discount).

Gleaners Wrap Up - The Red Wings Commune, a group of volunteers flying under the banner of friendship and Red Wings mania converged on Gleaners Food Bank in Detroit, to work a 3 hour shift in a warehouse.  Red Wings Commune Volunteers can be any local or visiting Detroit Red Wings fan who wants to make a difference in our community.
