Why We Should Be Happy With Michael Rasmussen

For the first time in 25 years the Detroit Red Wings missed the playoffs in 2016-17 and that meant getting a top-10 pick for the first time since the streak started in 1991, when they selected Martin Lapointe with the No.10 overall pick and their highest pick since taking Keith Primeau at No.3 the year…

Wings Nation 2016-17 Player Review: Justin Abdelkader

In November 2015, Ken Holland made one of his biggest mistakes as General Manager of the Detroit Red Wings. During his time as the GM he has been no stranger to handing out big money, but this time he gave it to the wrong guy. That fall, Holland signed Justin Abdelkader to a seven-year contract extension…

WGD: GAME 77: Red Wings @ Lightning

Call it uninspired or call it fatigued from playing their third game in three nights, but the Red Wings were basically run out of Carolina on Tuesday. The loss officially ended the Red Wings’ 25-year playoff streak and signalled the end of an era in Detroit.

WGD: GAME 76: Back-to-Back-to-Back

The Red Wings will wrap-up a historic back-to-back-to-back set tonight in Carolina. The Red Wings have made your typical back-to-back look pretty easy, beating the Wild and Hurricanes in overtime so far, but they will need to beat the Hurricanes again tonight to make it three wins in three days. Even though the games don’t…

WGD: GAME 75: Two of Three

The Red Wings were able to wrestle away an overtime win from the Wild yesterday, despite posting just 19 shots on goal. Detroit has surprisingly won four of their last six games (4-1-1) and continue to worsen their odds of winning the Draft Lottery.

WGD: GAME 74: Sunday Funday

The Red Wings dropped yet another game to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday and it pushed the Lightning one step closer to the playoffs. The clock on Joe Louis Arena continues to tick down with this afternoon’s game vs. the Wild being the fifth-last game at the old barn. Today’s meeting will be the…

WGD: GAME 73: Playing Spoiler

After meeting in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for two straight years, it looks like both the Detroit Red Wings and Tampa Bay Lightning will miss the playoffs this season.

WGD: GAME 72: Detroit @ mOTTreal

Another day, another loss for the Detroit Red Wings. They have now lost seven of their last 10 games and are second-last in the Eastern Conference with a 28-32-11 record. Don’t worry, it’s almost over.

WGD: GAME 71: Only 12 Games Left

After an embarrassing loss in Colorado last Wednesday, the Red Wings bounced back to beat the Coyotes in Arizona on Thursday (not their best win ever, but a win nonetheless) and then they demolished the Avalanche in the third period of Saturday’s win at Joe Louis Arena.

WGD: GAME 69: #NICE

The Red Wings have hit a new low. A lot of things have went wrong this year, but they had never lost to the Colorado Avalanche until last night. The Avalanche had just 19 wins in their first 68 games, so last night’s loss was just flat-out embarrassing.

WGD: GAME 68: DETROIT @ COLOLRADO

As someone who grew up in the 90s it is weird to see the Red Wings and Avalanche go head-to-head as the 27th and 30th ranked teams in the NHL, but here we are. Long gone are the days of Steve Yzerman, Joe Sakic, Nick Lidstrom and Patrick Roy and both teams are in search…
