Per multiple sources the wings have traded goal tender Petr Mrazek to the Flyers.

DET guaranteed no less than a 4th round for Mrazek. If PHI makes playoffs and Mrazek wins 5 games for PHI in reg season, 4th becomes a 3rd. If PHI advances to CF, and Mrazek wins six playoff games, the 3rd becomes a 2nd. If PHI re-signs him next season, DET gets PHI 3rd in 19.

 

So the minimum DET gets for Mrazek is a fourth-round pick, that could become a third- or a second-round pick, dependent on how Mrazek/Flyers perform. The additional pick, a third-rounder, is conditional only on Mrazek re-signing in PHI.

In a shocker, the new Red Wings arena will be called Little Caesars Arena. I don't think anyone saw that coming.

Now it needs a nickname - Pizzarena? You heard it here first. TM/Copyright/Patent Ypsituckyboy 2016.

Datsyuk done in NHL?

Datsyuk done in NHL?

DetroitSportsNation is reporting that in an exclusive interview with Mitch Albom, Datsyuk stated that he thinks he is done playing in the NHL. While many people are split on whether he should stick around or stay, the obvious downside to Datsyuk leaving is the new CBA that states that if a player over 35 signs a multi-year deal, the team is responsible for the entirety of the deal. So even without Datsyuk, his cap hit is still there. LINK: http://detroitsportsnation.com/detroit-nhl/sbrophy/breaking-pavel-datsy…

Red Wings vs. Blackhawks: Who ya got?

Red Wings vs. Blackhawks: Who ya got?

Tonight, the Red Wings and the Blackhawks play the first of two games in a home and home this week (with Chicago squeezing in a game at Boston). Who do you have winning tonight in Detroit? And in Chicago Sunday night? The Red Wings just beat Dallas, and are in striking distance of Florida. Can they beat the Blackhawks once? Twice? Not at all?

One clear link between the two teams is Scotty Bowman. Under Bowman's watch, the Red Wings won their first Cup in 42 years, and then repeated five years later. What a way to go out. Anyway, with Stan Bowman in Chicago, and Scotty serving as senior unofficial advisor, it has made a huge difference. Bowman makes it a lot of fun to be a Chicago fan.

I never thought with the salary cap issues that Chicago would do this well in 2016. With the signing of Ladd last week, along with wingers Fleischmann, Weise, and defenseman Ehrloff, the Blackhawks are making a real push to repeat and compete for the Cup.

Nicklas Lidstrom, who won seven Norris Trophies and four Stanley Cups as a cornerstone of the Red Wings, is a virtual lock in his first year of eligibility.

The Red Wings' blue liner was a Calder Trophy-finalist in his rookie season, and went on to score 264 goals and added 878 assists for 1,142 points in his career.

Only five defensemen recorded more: Ray Bourque, Paul Coffey, Al MacInnis, Phil Housley and Larry Murphy. All but Housley are already in the Hall, and the American blue-line leader should receive strong consideration again.

Other candidates with a good chance include Lidstrom's ex-teammate Sergei Fedorov and nemesis Chris Pronger.

OT- Mike Babcock destination

OT- Mike Babcock destination

Submitted by JonnyHintz on April 10th, 2015 at 11:55 AM
There have been rumors floating around all season about Mike Babcock and his potential departure from Detroit. He has been touted as the savior of Toronto and, more recently, Edmonton. He has been talked about as potentially coaching Pittsburgh and rejoining Crosby after their gold medal runs. Will he remain in Detoit? Head north? Will he be a Penguin? Is it going to be about the money or the best situation? He is undeniably a top 5 coach in the NHL and arguably the very best. No doubt he could coach just about anywhere. Realistically, what do you expect him to do?

His daughter was born in the car on the way to the hospital.  Apparently the mother did it her own.  No assist from Helm.
