New Money, Old Money and St. Louis " The Production Line
Disch's take on the situation has me rolling: "Lil’ D, here’s a bit of advice. We’ve been here. We’ve been here for a long time. We’ll be here long after your little surge is over, your new found currency gone, and you’re back in your cave, jerking it to some Gretz card you saved from that 10 minutes when he was saddled with playing for your sad little franchise."

We're Better Than You | Nightmare on Helm Street
Interesting question from Drew at NOHS: do we even need to make a move by the trade deadline...or would you feel confident enough taking this squad against any team in a seven game series? Why give up ANYTHING if we already have the best team, and save that cap room to bring in a big name who wants to be a part of a back-to-back Cup run?

Notebook: Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall puts lapses in past | The Detroit News |
It's a good thing too. The Wings need Kronwall to be steady on both ends of the ice and, so far, since he got his extension especially, he's been living up to expectations for this season.

Teammates like the new ‘feisty’ Jimmy Howard | Red Wings Front
I've said it before and I'll say it again: If this team wins the Stanley Cup this year it's going to be because of Jimmy Howard. The kid is playing with passion and heart this season and his numbers are freakin' outstanding. People on the outside might just want to credit the Red Wings system and knock Jimmy because he plays behind Lidstrom, but those who watch this kid every night know just how good he is. Jimmy for President.

Big Bert closes on 300-goal milestone - Detroit Red Wings - News
One to go for the big fella. In what might be Bert's last season in the NHL, it's great to see him playing so well. I know we what 5 for #5 this season, but I wouldn't mind seeing 1 for #44 either.

Blues lose free-throw contest, still get one point vs Penguins. - St. Louis Game Time
The Blues lost a close game to the Penguins. Still can't avoid mentioning Detroit in their recap. Also, SLGT, I'm from Detroit so your theory is flawed.

Did Blues’ Barret Jackman prey on Matt Cooke’s reputation for boarding call? (Video) | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports
Barret Jackman dove face-first into the boards to draw a penalty. What a shameful thing to do.
