Wings Dominate, Need OT to Drop Wild

Despite out-shooting the Minnesota Wild by 27, the Detroit Red Wings needed an overtime power play to stay perfect on the season. Without looking terribly sharp, the Wings held a 10-5 shot advantage through 20 minutes. However, they went into the locker room trailing 1-0 due to a late goal by Greg Zanon, he of the TEN career goals in nearly 400 games. The Wild increased their lead to two on an early second period goal by Cal Clutterbuck. Not counting the intermission, the two Wild goals came 28 seconds apart. From there, it was a different Red Wings team as they thoroughly manhandled the Wild for the remainder of the game. White Lights Ian White cut the lead to one on his second goal of the young season. Early returns on the diminutive defenseman are coming up positive. He has been everything the Wings management team could have hoped for when they signed him ...

Wings Ruin Banner Night for Bitter Rival

The rivalry between the Colorado Avalanche and the Detroit Red Wings that spanned the better part of a decade was one of the most ferocious in the history of professional sports. The climax was a night that has taken on a life of it’s own, a game at Joe Louis Arena on March 26, 1997 that has been dubbed “Fight Night at the Joe”. The rivalry was so great because both teams were at the very top of their game from the mid-90s to the early 2000s. They combined for 5 Stanley Cup championships from 1995-2002, as well as 6 Western conference championships, 5 President’s trophies and 12 divisional championships. The two teams featured a plethora of all stars, including Peter Forsberg, who had his number retired by the Avalanche last night. How Swede It Is Forsberg was one of the greatest Swedish hockey players of all time. His career totals show 885 points ...

Solving the Cap Crisis

Depending on how close you follow the sport of hockey, you may or may not know that the current Collective Bargaining Agreement under which the National Hockey League operates is set to expire in approximately a year’s time. If a new CBA has not been agreed to by that time, then play will continue under the current one until a new agreement has been reached. While we don’t necessarily have the threat of a lockout looming over the next season, there will still be plenty of points of contention up for debate before the NHL and the NHLPA will come to an agreement. The biggest sticking point will be the rash long-term, front-loaded contracts that circumvent the intention of the salary cap. The current system is not working, so it is up to the league and the player’s association to come up with something better. Here’s what I would do if it ...
