Get well soon, Riley. Coach Blashill has ruled Riley Sheahan out for tonight vs. Tampa. #RedWings #DETvsTBL — Detroit Red Wings (@DetroitRedWings) February 3, 2016 No changes to the awesome Red Wings lineup.

Jakub Kindl clears waivers, will report to AHL Affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins

DETROIT, MICH -- After being placed on waivers yesterday, Red Wings defenseman Jakub Kindl has cleared waivers, and will report to Grand Rapids. Kindl clears waivers. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) January 10, 2016 This has been something in making for quite some time now, general manager Ken Holland claims to have been trying to move Jakub Kindl for a draft pick, but teams would only make the trade if the Red Wings would take back a roster player. Holland wasn't ready to assume the salary for another contract, so they were left with the waiver option. One thing to keep in mind is...

Should the Flyers claim defenseman Jakub Kindl off waivers?

A youngish, impactful defenseman could be had for nothing on the waiver wire. The Detroit Red Wings placed 28-year old defenseman Jakub Kindl on waivers on Saturday morning. With a relatively cheap contract, and only two years remaining on his deal, Kindl represents an intriguing option for a Flyers team fighting for a wild card spot. This is one of those rare opportunities to cash in on a player whose negative perception doesn't match his positive on-ice impact. DET puts Jakub Kindl on waivers. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) January 9, 2016 A big, mobile, and offensively-inclined...

The Kindl Reaction: Why Red Wings Fans are Happy about Jakub Kindl being on Waivers

From the looks of the internet today, you'd think that Alex Semin had been waived again. A team with a well-known questionable defense for years has placed a birds-eye-view analytics darling defenseman on waivers and certain corners of the internet are honestly astounded at the response from a lot of Red Wings fans (this blog included). Let's be clear, I don't think Jakub Kindl is garbage. I think he has a place in the NHL and I think that there's a real good chance a team making a claim on him will get a value pick-up for taking his $2.4M salary through the end of next season. I'm not...

Cult of Hockey: Detroit Red Wings put d-man Jakub Kindl on waivers — should Edmonton Oilers be interested?

Another tempting name hit the waiver wire on Saturday morning, as Detroit Red Wings have exposed defenceman Jakub Kindl for purposes of re-assignment. On the surface Kindl is a player of great interest, especially to a defensively-suspect club like Edmonton Oilers. He’s big (6’3, 198), experienced (28 years old, 271 NHL games played), talented (1st round […]
