Red Wings News

Red Wings acquire defenseman Marek Zidlicky from New Jersey for conditional draft pick; done dealing | MLive.com
I love this move. Zidlicky is not as good of a hockey player as Dion Phaneuf, but he is not bad, and considering the price that we paid for him, it was a great move by Ken Holland. In return for Zidlicky, we sent New Jersey a conditional third-round pick.
