In Red Wings Land
Development arrives for Red Wings before victories | The Detroit News
Solid work as always by Krupa, but the real story is a sad one.
it breaks my heart to write that due a series of reductions to staff over the years, including now, i am told to report to the metro desk beginning the first week of february.— gregg krupa (@greggkrupa) January 5, 2019
i worked there from 2000 to 2009, before beginning to cover #RedWings
it has been a great joy.

i had always hoped to expand my role.
now, it is eliminated.
i will particularly miss talking to the players and coaches, interacting with the fans and the different styles of sports writing.
i intend to continue to live tweet many wings games, from tv, and to blog.
Thanks for the coverage, Gregg. Always appreciated that he was the only Red Wings writer in town that would actually interact with the fans. Good luck on the metro desk. The Wings beat is worse off without you.

The NHL is run by the young guys -- can the 30-somethings keep up? | ESPN
Talk about your iconic venues. The Columbus Blue Jackets aren’t exactly a national draw, but the Detroit Red Wings are. Michigan vs. the the state of Ohio, at the Horseshoe. The thing sells itself.
In addition to the headline, Wyshynski gives five places he believes the NHL should take the Winter Classic to in the future. I could get behind a game pitting the state of Michigan against the state of Ohio. Let’s make it a throwback and raise the stakes... whomever wins gets Toledo.
