Red Wings News:
Pavel Datsyuk will miss the start of the 2015-2016 season. This should come to no surprise, because we have been anticipating it for some time. Still, this really sucks.
Red Wings prospect banter over at MLive. These are rankings according to their readers and commenters, so take it with the slightest grain of salt. I'm not sure I agree with Anthony Mantha being the number four prospect in our system. Seems like somewhat of a stretch.
James de Haas has come into each and every camp since being drafted and has done a bang-up job. The soon-to-be junior at Clarkson looks to develop his game, and the organization seems to be very high on this kid. Keep an eye on him.
Looks like we won't be seeing an NHL team in Seattle anytime soon. Bummer, because I think that would be a whole lot of fun.
For those of you who are interested in past NHL concussions, Bernie Nicholls writes some heavy stuff about how bad it was, and continues to be on his life.
For you draft and scouting nuts like myself, this is a fun read. The OHL's Sudbury Wolves turnover the most NHL talent compared to other teams.
A ridiculous concept, but a fun read. Not a huge fan of Staples, but NHL.com saying that Evgeny Kuznetsov is better than Taylor Hall is pretty ridiculous.
