The 2014 Grand Rapids Griffins Offseason Gameplan

The Wings and Griffins have several challenging decisions to make this summer in terms of their restricted free agents. Here are my thoughts.

Riley Sheahan - Detroit's Overshadowed Young Gun

So I've seen so many articles of late talking about how great Nyquist and Tatar are and they are absolutely correct. However, one guy not getting enough attention is Riley Sheahan. I took a look at his numbers and they are actually quite impressive. Here's my breakdown of Sheahan, but I'm really interested in hearing what everybody's opinion of him is.

Bert Hurt, Tootoo Up: Saturday Updates

Helene St. James of the Freep posts an update on the Wings, including another injury and some telling stuff from Babcock:

"They're hurt, they're hurt," he said. "Helmer would have been in a week ago if it was up to me. That's why I'm not allowed to be involved in that. But getting ready for summer isn't a priority. We need guys back. So how can we get them back? Well a guy with a broken foot and broken rib, they're not coming back. The head one, you never know. We could use anybody available."

Closure on the Backstrom Saga

#RedWings Howard: A lot of us are sick & tired of talking abt it

Strong words from Howard.

Next Stop the Hall of Fame for No. 5

The trainer asked Lidstrom what number he would like and Lidstrom said, "I wore No. 9 in Sweden and it’d be great to be No. 9 again." The trainer said, "Kid, that just ain’t gonna happen." So he just took whatever number was given to him and that is how he became No. 5.

Great article on the father of Finnish goaltending

Very interesting article on Upi Ylönen, the father of Finnish(and modern), goaltending. It's written for the masses, but a great background on hockey in Finland.

Z had back surgery today

From the Wings' official site. Z had surgery in New York today; will be evaluated in 8 weeks.

Z out for rest of NHL Season??? :O

Fansided and BR both have reported it's possible Z misses the whole NHL season if surgery is necessary. Does this mean the wings try and get a rental forward to try and replace his production this season at the deadlin3?

Team Sweden!!!

We have seen a good lineup for Team Sweden. I remember watching all six of the Red Wings selected for the team on the ice at the same time. We are lucky fans!
