In Red Wings Land FIVE NHL BACKUP GOALIES WHO COULD PLAY THEIR WAY INTO STARTING JOBS | The Hockey News JONATHAN BERNIER, DETROIT RED WINGS As he enters the final season of a six-year contract with the Red Wings, it can safely be said that the writing is on the wall for veteran netminder Jimmy Howard. Long considered as a trade chip for Detroit, albeit one that they’ve been unable to move, the Red Wings went out and brought in some insurance for the oft-injured keeper this summer when they inked Bernier to a three-year, $9-million pact. And while Bernier might not seem a sizeable...

In Red Wings Land Is Dylan Larkin, really, worthy to be Red Wings’ captain? | The Oakland Press Larkin essentially proved he can play center regularly in the NHL after mostly being on a wing previously. But is he really a No.1? We’ve been here before with Larkin. He took the NHL by storm early his rookie season, vaulting to among the leaders in plus-minus and gracing the cover of The Hockey News with the question, “The Next Jonathan Toews?” Then he slumped mightily. So Larkin had a pretty good third year, and now he’s supposed to be, what, “The Next Steve Yzerman…” So if...

In Red Wings Land Detroit Red Wings’ Kris Draper already scouting for 2019 NHL draft | Freep Maybe I’m biased because I loved watching Kris Draper play hockey for the Red Wings when I was a kid, but I really enjoy reading stories with quotes from him. He just seems way more genuine than others when he does interviews. It’s probably just my extreme lack of trust in Ken Holland and the fact I don’t actually believe almost everything he says. Regardless, there is some decent stuff from Draper in this interview. Around the League Mount Puckmore: Four players who define each...

The Wings 2018 off-season needed to be, and currently has been, something that the organization hit as close to the bullseye as they could. It started in June with many experts...
