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 ...

Ty Conklin Signed to backup Howard

Yesterday was another marker on a highway that is nearing it’s end. Chris Osgood retired, joining Kirk Maltby and Darren McCarty in post-hockey Wings affiliated work. Kris Draper is likely going to join that trio shortly, as there doesn’t seem to be any place for him on the roster. Whenever the two Swedes, Nick and Homer, eventually hang ‘em up, it will mark the end of an era of dominance that is into it’s third decade. This group of players have figured significantly into the Red Wings winning four Stanley Cups over the last 15 years, as well as grooming young players to continue the run in their stead. With Osgood announcing his retirement in a noon teleconfrence with Ken Holland, the Wings were in need of a backup goaltender. They didn’t have to go far to find one, snatching Ty Conklin up for one year at $750k. Conklin played the 2008-2009 season ...

Chris Osgood to Retire, Mentor Goalies

Word came down Monday morning that Ken Holland and Chris Osgood had scheduled a media conference call for noon Tuesday. Later on, the Detroit Free Press announced that Osgood would be returning for one more season. Apparently, they jumped the gun a little bit, as now we have a report surfacing including quotes from Osgood’s agent that he is, in fact, going to retire. He has also accepted a job mentoring the organization’s young goalies, it is believed. Click here to read the full article from MLive. The article also claims that Ty Conklin will be signed to backup Howard for the year. With MacDonald’s contract kicking to one-way next year, one would think he’d be the backup for 2012. Obviously, we’ll keep you up to date on the news as it comes from Holland and Osgood themselves, but right now if I had to guess I’d say that we’ve seen the ...
