Around The NHL
Look at that, we aren't the only team with a forward who did something stupid! I know a lot of us already knew about this, but the confirmation that the NHL is holding to the automatic 10 games is comforting.
Sounds like Kenny Holland isn't the only one in the car business. Tires are meeting boots all over the place in advance of the trade deadline. Some of the names being discussed could even affect the impending Expansion Draft. As usual, trade deadline day should be pretty exciting.
In Red Wings Land
Brendan Smith and Riley Sheahan will headline several Meijer events to obtain tickets for the official Fan Day event - so I'll give you two guesses at some names that won't move at this season’s trade deadline. At The Joe, fans will get the opportunity to skate, take pictures, do the behind-the-scenes and locker-room tours, and rub elbows with Red Wings alumni.
In a fun piece totally unrelated to current on-ice events, Tony Wolak looks at who he thinks are the 3 best netminders this city has ever seen (with the caveat of having extended playing time here). Not to spoil the fun of finding out who’s on the list and who isn’t, I will say that Jimmy Howard, Petr Mrazek, and Jared Coreau all missed out on ranking in his top-3 selections. Sorry, guys...
