Quick Hits: 9/15

Lilja Lingering - We've all followed the Lilja saga.  We offer him a contract at a discount, he says no, we go out and sign Salei for less, Llja doesn't find an offer he likes, Lilja regrets not taking the offer that Detroit gave him, Lilja's not ready to sign a two-way deal like Maltby did, Lilja not ready to go play overseas, Red Wings training camp starts and Detroit invites Lilja to keep skating with them.  Crazy.

Red Wings prospect Brendan Smith trying to grow, mature; Ken Holland says Jakub Kindl's all but a lock to make team as #7 defenseman- I'm pretty sure that George James Malik of Snapshots just broke his own record for the longest post title in Red Wings blogger history.  Do you even need to read the post?  Of course you do, it's George!

Know Thy Enemy: The Dallas Stars - Graham over at The Hole in the Door is going through all 29 opponents for the Detroit Red Wings.  Today he took a glance at Dallas, who saw two of its former franchise players jump ship to the Central.  One was going home for one last shot at the Cup, the other stands in his way.  Who will win?  Mike Modano, duh!

2010-2011 Team Previews: Detroit Red Wings- Houses of Hockey previews the Detroit Red Wings season.  Categories include: Looking Back, Key Additions, Key Subtractions, Offence, Defence, Goaltending, Best/Worst Case Scenario, Prospecting, All Eyes On, and a neat little Lyrically Speaking section where they use song lyrics to sum it all up.
