Wings Nation 2018-19 Player Review: Martin Frk

Gone are the days where we look at Martin Frk in awe and hope that his mean slap shot will stun goalies in the NHL. Frk has not had an easy road. After winning the Calder Cup with the Grand Rapids Griffins, he was hoping that he’d be NHL bound to quarterback Detroit’s power play….

Notes From Steve Yzerman’s Press Conference

Since Steve Yzerman’s appointment as general manager, the Red Wings legend has mostly kept quiet.

Wings Nation 2018-19 Player Review: Luke Glendening

Luke Glendening is often pointed to by Red Wings fans when the topic of why the Red Wings are bad is brought up. Glendening is the epitome of what we’ve come to think about as the Red Wings Way ™: a Michigan boy who works hard and grinds it out in the corners. His work…

Wings Nation 2018-19 Player Review: Thomas Vanek
