Red Wings News:
You gotta see Tyler Bertuzzi's goal in this one. Watch it. Look at it, LOOK at it!
From our very own @WingedOctopus, a great take on how Jeff Blashill could "re-Kindl" a player's career by implementing a new set of ideals, and systematics.
From Red Wings general manager Ken Holland: "The players you expect were the best in the scrimmages: Dylan Larkin, Tyler Bertuzzi. Anthony Mantha played good." Good to see Anthony Mantha bouncing back after all of the criticisms hovering around his name. Oh hey, guess what? He's actually a good hockey player. WEIRD.
With Pavel Datsyuk possibly out for the start of the season, why wouldn't Jeff Blashill want top prospect Dylan Larkin manning third line center? Though, I do wonder if expectations are being set awfully high on the young forward. Nevertheless, he is still one of the best options to slate into the third line, assuming Riley Sheahan is the bonafide second line center.
Great deal. $60 million over eight years is a bargain for the Blues, and Vladimir Tarasenko still gets a damn-good paycheck. Certainly one of the only players in St. Louis that I enjoy watching.
Slava Voynov could possibly move to the KHL after he serves his jail-time. If it were up to me, he wouldn't have a job in sports at all. I don't care what country. Good on Slava Fetisov saying he got off light, because that's the truth.
Another team in Minnesota? Yeah, I don't think so. State of Hockey, or not.. I just don't see that happening.
Lots of names in this list, number two being newly-acquired Red Wings defenseman Mike Green. He'll be working alongside Danny DeKeyser or Niklas Kronwall, so he could be a great pick for your fantasy hockey team.
