Random Red Wings Notes

http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index....as_holmst.html

Homer to announce retirement. I have said it before but this is the right thing hes taken too many years of punishment in front of the net. For a player that was never supposed to make the NHL he had a hell of a career. I have a feeling the wings organization will find him a job somewhere.

http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index...._to_mount.html

This should be expected all season long. Groin Injuries will play a big part in this shortened season. Brutuzzi is not that big of a deal as the wings are stacked at forward. As much as i don't like the guy Kindl will play a big part this season and this injury hurts the wings big time.

http://www.mlive.com/redwings/team/1...s-cleared.html

Eaves is finally cleared to play. I have always liked Eaves sucks that this happened to him. Will be tough to come back after sitting out that long right away. Hope he can make it back.


Eaves fights Versteeg. This was a great fight, ignore the call by the announcers and the title of the video very even fight big punches landed by both guys. I dont think Eaves will be doing any more of this with the concussion issue but i have always liked his toughness.

Good thing we have a pile of forwards. I was never big on Sammy and if this groin injury makes hims even slower, than he will be a pylon. Injuries injuries injuries. Helm, Bert, Sammy, Kindl, Coliacovo. Please do not be sign of things to come.

Bad news: Looks like Helm is going to miss the first 3 games and will be replaced in the lineup by Emmerton, but on the 4th line. Bert is out with the flu.
Good news: Eaves is cleared to play.

Interesting that when we have all our players healthy, we will have to trade or waive either Jan Mursak or Cory Emmerton.

Tough call, Emmerton more all around, Mursak more offensively skilled. Emmerton should get a chance to make a case tomorrow. Hustle young man hustle.

Personally i dont really care for either player that much. They provide needed depth but not much more than that. I guess of the two i would rather keep Emmerton because as you stated he is a better all around player which is more useful for a depth sub. But there is some good young talent, better than both players, down in Grand Rapids so i think both players time in the origination is limited anyways.

Mike Knuble signs 25 game contract with Griffins. Don't know if he will stay for all 25 games if he plays well he could be picked up by another NHL team. But for the time being it will be cool to see him play with the Griffins.

http://www.mlive.com/redwings/team/1...sidelined.html

Bertuzzi, Eaves, Helm, out for sure. Mursak to replace Eaves. Kindl is questionable still.

http://www.foxsportsdetroit.com/01/1...19&feedID=3569

Looks like Colaiacovo is a go tonight against his former team the Blues.

http://www.wingingitinmotown.com/201...-blues-preview

Good first game preview. Overall a good Wings blog if your not familiar with it. Would recommend adding it to you bookmarks if your looking for good quick wings information.

http://kuklaskorner.com/a2y/comments...ugh-road-to-12

Another good wings blog, takes some time getting used to because they use a lot of nick names a terms that wont make sense at first, but once you get them great blog with a lot of great humor with some good analysis thrown in that you wont find anywhere else. Plus the guy who writes it is a legitimate Master Chief and you cant get more bad ass than that.

kuklaskorner was a pretty awesome read, but you can get more bad ass than a Master Chief UNLESS he was a Master Chief with SEAL Team 6...then no, you cannot get more bad ass.

http://www.wingingitinmotown.com/201...shouldnt-panic

Why we should and shouldn't panic. I'm more so in the not panic camp right now, just one game with a young team they need some time to gel. Problem is in the shortened season there isn't that much time to gel. Ok everybody panic.

http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index....gameday_1.html

Basically the same question one game fluke or sign of things to come?

http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index....y_must_co.html

Red wings realize they must compete harder bla bla bla. Typicicall world isnt falling article full of cliche answers you would expect.

http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...serious-injury

Ericsson day to day after stepping on a puck. Wait what? Gustavsson now out with groin. wings to recall McCollum from GR. Mursak out several weeks with collar bone. Eaves to take his spot in the line up.

http://www.freep.com/article/2013012...%20Red%20Wings

Drew sharp calls out Brendon smith. Partly right but also feels the need to bring up the Sheahan incident when he had Smiths ID. Im pretty sure thats the reason a rookie is struggling to ajust to the NHL in his first year. (did i mention i hate drew sharp)

Red wings are basically willing to have anyone play D for them now. I think i may try out. As far as this signing, anyone who is left on the market still in a league begging for defensive help is not going to bring me much excitement.

http://www.freep.com/article/2013012...%20Red%20Wings

I like this kid and think he has a bright future with the wings. I still am not used to seeing so many young players with the wings. So this is how the other half lived for the last 20 yrs.

http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...Friday-vs-Wild

Bertuzzi Mono free. Will play Friday most likely. Think he can play on the blue line?

http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index....ings_lose.html

Colaiacovo is hurt. Who saw this coming?

http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index....t_to_anno.html

Holmstrom set to offically retire. The last of the old guard to hang them up. Had a great career. Amazing he lasted as long as he did with all the punishment he took in front of the net.

http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article...k-to-the-books

Financial impact of the lockout on the wings. As you can imagine they lost a little money but will benefit long term from new CBA.

http://www.battleofcali.com/2013/1/2...a-thriving-khl

Not wings related but i thought it was an interesting article. Why the NHL players need a thriving KHL.



The Too Too Boll fight from last night. Clear win Boll. Too Too was way out of his league here.



Homer highlight reel.
