Red Wings Cap Recapture Strategy: LTIR Loophole has its Limits

There's only so much dead cap space you can put on LTIR and there are certain drawbacks to choosing that method. When last we wrote about the Red Wings' long-term contracts, we discussed the buyout punishment and also the potential Cap Recapture ramifications of the early retirements of Henrik Zetterberg, Niklas Kronwall, or Johan Franzen. One of the obvious questions which came out of that discussion was why should we bother even worrying about Johan Franzen's Cap Recapture penalty, knowing that Franzen is going to spend the rest of his career on Long Term Injured Reserve to open up...

Red Wings Locker Clean Out: Ken Holland, Jeff Blashill, players address media

Now that the season is done, it's time to pack it up and go home. Today was locker clean out for the Red Wings. Along with that, players, management, and coaching spoke with the media on their thoughts from this season and going forward. Pavel Datsyuk Situation Henrik Zetterberg on Datsyuk's possible retirement. "I'm pretty sure he's made up his mind." #ReadIntoItAndWeep — Jennifer Hammond (@HammerFox2) April 25, 2016 To me, that reads as if he's gone. His mind is made up, but apparently it will not be officially decided until after World Championships. Ken Holland told media that he...

Red Wings might look to Dylan Larkin to fill potential void at center

DETROIT - With Pavel Datsyuk possibly returning to Russia and Henrik Zetterberg's career winding down, the Detroit Red Wings will need a future anchor in the middle. It could be Dylan Larkin, the 19-year-old rookie who was one of the...

Red Wings at Lightning: Stanley Cup Playoffs Gameday Updates, Line combinations, Key Match-ups

I'm not going to go too far into analysis or what needs to be done. Just win the game, or hit the golf course. Plain-and-simple. The Red Wings need to keep their composure, and not fall into a similar situation like they did in game two. You have one job. Do it. Alexey Marchenko is out, Xavier Ouellet is out. No changes from the last game.

Slumping Red Wings Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk could be playing final game together

DETROIT - Game 5 against the Tampa Bay Lightning could very mark the last time Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk play together with the Detroit Red Wings. That alone will make it a memorable game regardless of the outcome if...

Watch Henrik Zetterberg's Goal that Survived Two Reviews

Your browser does not support iframes. We already showed you the Athanasiou goal that turned out to be the game-winner, but we've got another highlight goal for you in this one. Henrik Zetterberg padded the Wings' lead to 2-0 just 4:40 after the AA goal. The video doesn't show the Nyquist steal at center ice that got this sequence started, but you can see his fingerprints all over the setup in what ends up creating the goal, as Nyquist wrecking-balls all over the Tampa zone while Larkin gets himself involved when Bishop tries to interfere with him and ends up being unable to control the...

Report: Joakim Andersson to leave NHL to play in SHL with Orebro HK

Reports have surfaced that Joakim Andersson will return to Sweden after the postseason has concluded. Despite the report being in Swedish, Google did the work for us. Here's a *rough* translation of the article: Detroit is 2-0 in games in the first round of the playoffs against Tampa Bay. The season thus looks to an end relatively early for Henrik Zetterberg and the rest of the Red Wings. Can you believe Expressen choose one of the team's Swedes, Joakim Andersson, to leave the club after this season. Joakim Andersson sits on a contract basis and according to the newspaper, 27-year-old...

The over-usage of Henrik Zetterberg is a hill the Red Wings will die on

You don't need stats to see it. All you need is two capable eyes, and a general understanding of how hockey works. Henrik Zetterberg is on the wrong side of his 30's, and the decline is real. The problem isn't that he's declining. No, that happens to any player who's sustained injuries like he has. The problem is that he's still being treated as if he is a rock that the team can lean on in big situations. Once upon a time, even in recent years, this was fine. Now it's not. I love Henrik Zetterberg, but I can't help to cringe when I see him skating through the neutral zone at what appears to...
