Forward Patrick Eaves, out for more than a year recovering from a concussion, took part in practice, including contact. That's a huge step forward from last season, when he never really even skated with the guys except at the end of practices.
"I'm cleared to go out there and practice," Eaves said. "I can do whatever we do out here. It's more than I was able to do a little while ago. I felt good today. We'll see how tomorrow goes."
Eaves still is not cleared for games, but as he said, "I just have to keep making progress."
and the logjam at the forward position gets even bigger
Tickets for the home opener Jan. 24 vs. Dallas and all 24 home games will go on sale Thursday at 1 p.m. As part of the Red Wings Thanks for sticking with us initiative, the club and Ticketmaster have teamed up for 35 hours of no fees for any regular season ticket purchased. From 1 p.m. Thursday through midnight Friday, tickets purchased at Detroitredwings.com, Ticketmaster.com, the Joe Louis Arena Box Office or by calling 313-396-7575 will be Fee-Free.
So it looks like the only thing the wings are doing to give back to the fans is waving processing fees for the first 35 hours. yippee
would have been nice if they did something along the lines of what the sens are doing
No time frame was given, and the proposed arena location wasn't disclosed, but longtime speculation has centered on the area near the Fox Theatre, between Grand River and Cass avenues south of I-75 or west of Woodward Avenue north of I-75.
The Ilitches addressed the location this way: "While the exact location of the district has not been determined, it will be strategically located to serve some of the most underutilized areas in Detroit's downtown core, strengthening the link between Detroit's existing assets through a continuous, walkable environment connecting one district to the next and serving to improve the quality of life for residents and visitors alike."
