In Red Wings Land
10 thoughts as Detroit Red Wings head into training camp - Freep
Right from the desk of the paper that got denied credentials to a Kid Rock concert comes Helene's 10 thoughts, including news that the Wings' will have Z, Nielsen, and Sheahan at center and also two entire thoughts dedicated to saying that the Wings have not signed Athanasiou and have signed Trevor Daley. Honestly, it's a pretty decent read collecting thoughts in preparation for training camp to start.

31 Thoughts: Making sense of Matt Duchene's situation - Sportsnet.ca
Always a good read from Friedman, there are two Red Wings-specific thoughts in here about interest in Riley Sheahan and also Athanasiou being "just stubborn enough to do it" in regards to getting called on his bluff and ending up in the KHL. I guess you could call it three if you include George Parros talking about wanting to come down harder on guys like Nyquist while making excuses for the constant stream of borderline horseshit Radko Gudas tries game in and game out.
