Red Wings expect changes for 2014 - 2015

29 April 2014 - 08:16 PM

I thought this was a good article, it mentions that we're hoping to add a scorer and a top 4 defenseman.

Detroit says Weiss "Not Getting Better", likely done for year

04 April 2014 - 02:44 PM

I apologize if this has been posted already, I came across it in my news feed and thought I'd share.

 

I didn't really expect him to return, this makes the Legwand acquisition seem a bit more legit. 

 

“He’s not on the horizon to come back,” Detroit GM Ken Holland said, per the Macomb Daily. “I was just in there talking to Steve, talking to our trainers, everybody is a little bit frustrated because we obviously thought he would be back by now, actually a long time ago."

Franzen calls out team

17 March 2014 - 10:55 PM

 

"I think we could play better,” Johan Franzen said. “Maybe we need to believe in ourselves a little bit more. It’s like we’re not all there. It doesn’t look like we all believe in it.

“For us to win games, everyone out there has got to want the puck and help each other. You can’t sit on the side and watch other guys do it for you. Everyone has got to pull in the same direction.”

Interesting read, are the players starting to wake up and realize that it's a team effort? Or are they looking to blame one another for the team's downfall?


Trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi

The latest trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi will see the case finally come to Ontario Superior Court after 10 years and six months to the day when Bertuzzi attacked Moore during an NHL game.

On March 8, 2004, Bertuzzi, then playing for the Vancouver Canucks, jumped Moore, then 25, punched him repeatedly and drove him into the ice. Moore sustained three broken vertebrae, a concussion and lasting brain damage. He never played in the NHL again and in 2006 launched a lawsuit against Bertuzzi and the Canucks seeking more than $38-million in damages for his lost hockey career and a post-hockey career Moore says he is denied because of the effects of his injuries.

After years of legal wrangling over everything from the proper jurisdiction to a secret deal between Bertuzzi, the Canucks and former Canucks head coach Marc Crawford, the case will come to trial in Superior Court in Toronto on Sept. 8, 2014. The jury trial is expected to last up to three months.

The previous trial date was September, 2012 but when Moore’s lawyer, Tim Danson, learned of a secret agreement between Bertuzzi, Crawford and the company that owned the Canucks in 2008, Orca Bay, there was another delay. The agreement saw Bertuzzi drop his third-party claim against Crawford and then the Canucks, Crawford and Bertuzzi dismissed all cross-claims between each other. It also called for Bertuzzi, Crawford and the Canucks to share the cost of any damages awarded to Moore but the court did not make public how the three parties would split the payments.

Danson asked the court to reveal the details of the agreement. The court eventually allowed Danson to see the agreement but did not make it public.

I wonder what will become of this?

 


I couldn't help but notice... (rant)

Okay so I'm logging on the Detroit Red Wings website and I notice the intro screen is a collage of players from Original Six teams...with Sidney Crosby as the 7th. Do they SERIOUSLY have to include him in EVERYTHING?

 

There's enough Cindy bashing I'm aware but did I miss the petition to include Pittsburgh in the "Original Seven"?
