In what is shaping up as a great off season the Red Wings have reached a 2-year deal with Gustav Nyquist. The deal is for $1.9 mil or $950k cap hit. This signing looks like a steal to me, and I think this kid has a break out season in 2013-14.

I know we are close to the season but thought this wasn't crazy off topic.
Edit: I know it's the Freep but only news outlet with an article so far.
Since Steven Rhodes participated in "Organized football games" while being deployed with other marines (aging from 18-40) the NCAA has ruled him inelgibile. MTSU is appealing this ruling, and if there is any good left in the NCAA they better let this guy play.
Title say it all, Red Wings plan on retiring Nick Lidstrom's #5 jersey. Retirement will take place March 6th prior to Colorado game.
Red Wings also stated this would have occured last season if not for the shortened season.
In some horrible news Jonas Mouton has suffered a torn ACL and will likely miss the entire 2013 NFL season. Mouton also missed the entire 2011 season after a shoulder injury.
Hope him all the best in his recovery, and he can get back to contributing to the Chargers.
So apparently South Carolina is investigating Jadeveon Clowney's relationship with Jay-Z. Who recently has created Roc Nation Sports (sports agency). The university is looking into the relationship and determining if any NCAA violations, including any that would jeopardize his eligibility. (Per NFL.com)
