Red Wings hoping to meet with Shane Doan, as free-agent forward continues talking to teams |
Man, I don't even want to imagine the fan base when Doan signs with the Canucks or Penguins.

Red Wings GM criticized for lack of offseason splash; but is it premature? | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports
Premature? A little. Let's see how this Doan (and Semin) stuff shakes out before we completely throw Kenny Holland under the bus. Plus, he can still redeem himself if he gets a number one D man here.

KuklasKorner : The Malik Report : Red Wings overnight report: on cap sense and sensability, Alan Quine and Marek Tvrdon
George wraps up the news of the day with some CBA/Wings talk with a little prospect info as well.

Around the NHL

Eight's a Crowd: Fixing the Flames' Back-End Blues - Matchsticks and Gasoline
The Flames have 8 D-Men on their roster and have to make some room. Too many of them have NTC/NMCs, but M&G breaks down the Flames options. Might a Bouwmeester trade be in the works?

Shane Doan has visited New York to talk about joining the Rangers and Scott Howson is actually talking to Glen Sather about Rick Nash. The arms race in the Atlantic is getting good.

Dan Carcillo is an idiot.

Evaluating goalies in context: adjusted Save Percentage, or SV%+ - Broad Street Hockey
This is a pretty fantastic way of looking at goalie effectiveness and does a great deal to support the Wings' approach to goaltending.

Weber offer sheet: circumvention of the CBA? / MCSORLEY'S STICK
Quisp believes the structure of the Weber contract violates the spirit of the CBA in its attempt to undermine Nashville's ability to compete. He's got some other ideas where if you move dollars around, they violate another section, but that's not so much the spirit of the CBA.

Let's Go Red Wings.
