Howard, 36, said he was “probably not” going to continue with the Red Wings, but squashed rumours he was retiring, saying, “Someone is going to have to tell me I can’t play anymore”...— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) September 20, 2020 In my article about Red Wings goalies this past season, I showed just how bad he was last season. Unfortunately, I don’t see him bouncing back, and Detroit should move on from him. Upper body injury...

Photo by Mike Stobe/NHLI via In Red Wings Land Albert Johansson (DET) was very good. Smart puck-movement, got involved offensively, handled his defensive responsibilities well. Finished with a goal and an assist but only played 13:13. It's tough to get minutes on that strong Färjestad team, and they also used 7 defensemen.— Jokke Nevalainen (@JokkeNevalainen) September 19, 2020 Jonatan Berggren gör första målet för säsongen och ger @skelleftea_aik ledningen! #twittpuck #shl pic.twitter.com/eUrhTwQoxD— C More Sport (@cmoresport) September 19, 2020 Johansson and...

It will be an interesting time, as there are multiple openings — some of which general manager Steve Yzerman will need to address via free agency or trades. I’m only including this because there haven’t been Red Wings articles to include lately. Even by HSJ standards, this is pretty bad. Around the NHL The...

Lessons For the Red Wings From the Second Round

Lessons For the Red Wings From the Second Round

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Four more teams eliminated give the Red Wings things to consider Following a fairly entertaining, yet somewhat noncompetitive first round that didn’t see any of the eight series go to 7 games, the second round delivered. 3 of the 4 series went to seven games featuring a few comebacks that ultimately fell short. With the dust on these series long settled now we can look back at what the four eliminated teams were missing and what can be learned from them as Detroit continues to rebuild. If you want to look back at what lessons could be taken from the earlier...
