For many Detroit Red Wing fans, the scariest scene to ever play out during a game of hockey came on the night of November 21, 2005.

When I began this series about the many different players the Detroit Red Wings could target with the fourth-overall pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, there was one player I went back and forth about whether or not to include. I’m sure the Red Wings should take him, but I’m not sure he will […]
Red Wings Have Plenty of Goalie Options for 2020-21
Jonathan Bernier did all he could to keep the Detroit Red Wings in games during the 2019-20 season. But few goalies can do it all on their own — every team needs at least two trustworthy options in goal. It’s why the 1A/1B set-up has become a lot more common over the last few years. […]

Detroit Red Wings Draft Candidates: Yaroslav Askarov
Not since Petr Mrazek have the Detroit Red Wings had a goaltending prospect that screams NHL potential.

Detroit Red Wings Draft Candidates: Marco Rossi
After Dylan Larkin, the Detroit Red Wings’ cupboard is pretty bare at center.

Let’s start this by stating the obvious: the news of Brock Boeser’s availability is nothing more than a rumor right now – a rumor that Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning promptly denied.

If you ask any Red Wings fan about the greatest weakness on their favorite team’s roster, chances are that they will bring up the defense. With a goals-against per-game average of 3.73, it’s easy to see why. The best defender on the 2019-20 Red Wings was Filip Hronek, and this was his first full season […]

Something good is coming with the fourth pick in the 2020 NHL draft.

Jimmy Howard’s Red Wings Legacy
Terry Sawchuk’s name is enshrined in the Hall of Fame, and his jersey hangs in the rafters of Little Caesars Arena. He leads the Detroit Red Wings in goaltending wins with 350.
