no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
OT: Favorite RedWings/hockey sites
The Production Line and Abel to Yzerman are the only ones I check out. I used to check TheTripleDeke religiously, but he retired. He's worth a follow on twitter though.
TTD is/was incredible
Winging It In Motown and Habs Eyes On The Prize. The Wings one is actually much better, as I am sure most of the good Habs blogs are en francais.
Nightmare on Helm Street (http://www.nightmareonhelmstreet.com) has added a few writers in the past couple months and I enjoy reading them (they do pre-game stuff, post-game summaries, news/analysis/opinions).
Also, The Malik Report at Kukla's Corner (http://www.kuklaskorner.com/index.php/tmr/) is pretty good. George Malik keeps up to date on seemingly every news story/interview related to the Wings and summarizes/quotes them out.
I see these mentioned a couple times here and there. Never checked them out and I even forget they exist sometimes. I'll have to have a look at them.
Not red wings specific, more NHL oriented. www.hockeybuzz.com has some good information at time,
I like The Production Line, though it's only the main writers that form the attraction, since there is little to no community around the site (the MGoBoard is half of what mgoblog great).
During the playoffs I like Abel 2 Yzerman, though his schtick gets a little old during the long regular season. I'm not qualified to be one of the 19.
I like WIIM on Facebook and Twitter, but the quality of the normal blog is not up there with the others, IMO. I check in from time to time, but not daily.
I'm sure most people know about Wyshynski, but if not he is a fun read.
Is read by a lot of NHL folks, as well as a lot of the media.
George Malik breathes hockey. Sometimes his health prevents him from posting but the guy loves hockey as much or more than Brian loves football. He used to TYPE LIVE play-by-play so that people without a video feed could follow the game.
I second letsgowings. Great site and board.
Just saw on WIIM that Nick Lidstrom left the morning skate early with flu-like symptoms, so he might not play tonight.
He is featured tonight on NHL 36, on NBCS (tsfka Versus) @ 6:30 ET.
