Future Free Agents: Cody Franson

After two disappointing seasons in Buffalo, Cody Franson is headed back to the free agent market. He didn’t really gel with the Sabres, as you can see based on his worse-than-usual production, but Franson is still the same big, skilled defenceman who can shoot bombs from the point, making him an attractive option for many teams in need…


Red Wings sign Libor Sulak to two-year contract

According to the team’s official Twitter account, the Red Wings have signed defenceman Libor Sulak to a two-year entry-level contract. Sulak, a 23-year-old from the Czech Republic, went undrafted, but has put up back-to-back impressive seasons for Orli Znojmo of the Austrian Elite League. Last season, he put up 28 points and a team-best plus-19 rating,…


Future Free Agents: Justin Williams

A couple years ago, the Washington Capitals brought Justin Williams in on a two-year deal in order to help win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. That didn’t happen, and now Williams is set to hit the open market once again this summer and will be a hot commodity for a team looking for…


Future Free Agents: Joe Thornton

Joe Thornton is a free agent. You know what team means? It’s time to speculate whether or not his time in San Jose is over or not. This is a narrative we’ve heard for years, but after the team went to the Stanley Cup Final in 2016, it’s even more difficult than ever to imagine Thornton…


Future Free Agents: Brian Boyle

Brian Boyle was acquired by the Toronto Maple Leafs for a pretty hefty price at this year’s trade deadline. He said at the end of the team’s season that he would be open to returning to Toronto, but as a 32-year-old, it’s also likely going to be Boyle’s final chance to make a big payday…


Future Free Agents: Alexander Radulov

The narrative surrounding Alexander Radulov has completely flipped in the past year. When he was inked by the Montreal Canadiens to a one-year, $5.75 million deal on the first day of free agency last summer, not long after the team had pulled off a massively polarizing swap of P.K. Subban for Shea Weber, it was met…


Future Free Agents: Ryan Miller

When the Vancouver Canucks signed Ryan Miller back in July 2014, it was surely a move that was expected to make the club competitive. But things didn’t work out that way. Miller was solid for the Canucks, save for an injury-riddled 2014-15 season, but the team only made one playoff appearance during his three years…


Future Free Agents: Nick Bonino

Before the Penguins’ 2016 Stanley Cup run, Nick Bonino was largely known as a guy who seems to be thrown into big trades. In 2014, the Canucks acquired him from the Ducks in a deal for Ryan Kesler. A year later, he was moved by the Canucks to the Penguins for Brandon Sutter. But after…


Andrea Athanasiou injured, Matt Lorito recalled

The Red Wings season from hell continues as another player can be added to the injury list. Andreas Athanasiou, one of this year’s few bright spots, will remain out of the lineup this weekend with some undisclosed mystery injury. #RedWings Athanasiou hurt and doubtful for Saturday, Holland said. — Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) April 6, 2017


WGD #80: Sens Part 2

The Sens are in the heat of a playoff race. Can the Wings play spoiler again tonight? Does it matter? Do you care? Are you here for Evgeny Svechnikov and nothing else?


Yevgeni Svechnikov Recalled from AHL

With the Red Wings roster completely decimated by injury, the team has recalled 2015 first round pick Yevgeny Svechnikov from Grand Rapids of the AHL. Svechnikov has had an excellent rookie season in the AHL this year, scoring 18 goals and picking up 26 assists in 68 games, good for fourth on the team. According…


Anthony Mantha done for the season with ‘upper body’ injury

Well, there goes one of the very few reasons the final few games of this season was somewhat watchable. Anthony Mantha left last night’s 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning after getting into a fight with Lightning defenceman Luke Witkowski. The Wings aren’t saying what the injury is specifically, giving it the ever-mysterious ‘upper body…
