Wings seek remedy for road woes | Red Wings Front
It's back to work for the Red Wings. The first item on the docket is fixing the road troubles.

Red Wings coach Mike Babcock speaks volumes quietly | The Detroit News | detroitnews.com
It bothers me a little bit that Babcock has never won the Jack Adams. Sometimes it's a whole hell of a lot harder to coach a talented team with big expectations than to turn a team around from one of the worst to a middle of the pack playoff team. Although, I'm sure Babcock could care less and would rather have a Cup than an Adams.

Slumping Red Wings' Henrik Zetterberg plans to 'just work hard' | Detroit Free Press | freep.com
We touched on this topic on the podcast. Hank's numbers sure are down, but he's doing other things very well and his line mates are producing and career rates.

Five Deals That SHOULD Be Made Before The Deadline | Hockey Independent
Every deal but number two includes a player I wish the Wings would go after.

Assessing Erik Karlsson’s Norris Trophy hopes | ProHockeyTalk

Despite the suitors, perhaps the Nashville Predators will hang onto Ryan Suter | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports
Kenny Holland is just waiting to pounce and sign this kid. Do it, Kenny. Make him a Wing.

Tim Gleason Signs Four-Year, $16 Million Extension With Carolina Hurricanes - Canes Country
