Detroit Red Wings Rumors: Wings Out on Christian Ehrhoff Due to Contract Demands | DSS
The Wings are unwilling to give Ehrhoff a five-year deal, which is what he is asking for. The difference between Ehrhoff and Niskanen in this situation is that Niskanen is four years younger.
A YouTube video scouting report: Red Wings first-round pick Dylan Larkin | The Detroit Hustle
A scouting report of the Wings first-round draft pick.
In fairness to McCollum, he did have the best season of his career last season in Grand Rapids.
Ranking the top 40 NHL free agents for 2014 - SBNation.com
Interesting list. They have Stralman ranked as the top defenseman available. I cannot say that I agree with that.
Report: Stastny, Avalanche can’t complete a deal | ProHockeyTalk
Not a huge surprise here. Stastny will probably be the most sought after free agent today, which means that he will receive a ridiculous contract. He made $6.6 million on average on his last deal, I would not be shocked if he receives a pay raise.

NHL rumors: Ryan Miller 'being wooed' by Canucks in Vancouver - CBSSports.com
If the Canucks want to be a rebuilding team, I would advise against signing Miller. Assuming that they want a high draft pick next season, having one of the best netminders in the world on your team certainly does not aid that cause.

For Gagner, it was not the quantity of hours that he spent with the Lighting, it was the quality of them that truly mattered.
Buyer beware with Matt Niskanen, a top NHL free agent defenseman - SBNation.com
Niskanen is a very good defenseman. He is young, and shoots right-handed. From a player perspective, I have no problem with the Wings pursuing him. My problem is the massive contract that he will receive. Niskanen is almost certain to receive a seven-year deal, and a cap hit north of $5 million. The salary I am fine with, it's the term that I cannot stomach.
Let's Go Red Wings!
