You gotta see Tyler Bertuzzi's goal in this one. Watch it. Look at it, LOOK at it!
Jeff Blashill Will Give Defenseman Jakub Kindl a Chance to Revive his Career | Winging It In Motown
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.
Top draft picks proved worth at Detroit Red Wings prospects camp | Detroit Free Press
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.
Larkin could make Wings’ roster if Blashill wants him | Daily Tribune
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.
Vladimir Tarasenko signs 8-year deal, Blues get a superstar steal | Puck Daddy - Yahoo Sports
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 has KHL job waiting after jail, but Fetisov says he ‘got off light’ | Puck Daddy - Yahoo Sports
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.
Proposal to Bring NHL Team to the Northland | FOX 21 News
Another team in Minnesota? Yeah, I don't think so. State of Hockey, or not.. I just don't see that happening.
Fantasy Hockey: NHL defensemen in new places could see value spike | NHL.com
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.
