RED WINGS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Red Wings In Salary Cap Trouble

The Detroit Red Wings are in a salary cap crunch. With important Restricted Free Agent’s Petr Mrazek and Danny DeKeyser still unsigned, and with only $3.27 Million (per General Fanager ) in cap space, something’s got to give. Let’s say DeKeyser gets $3.5 Million per year on a two-year ‘show me’ deal. The downside of this is DeKeyser, 26, becomes an Unrestricted Free...

Top 25 Under 25: Dylan Larkin

Detroit Red Wings: A look at Frans Nielsen

The Detroit Red Wings had two main things to focus on going into this year’s free agency: stacking up the defense and replacing Pavel Datsyuk. With little options in terms of a defensive powerhouse available as a free agent, the Wings’ first move became finding Datsyuk’s replacement. Steven Stamkos would have made a great addition, but he remained in Tampa Bay with an 8-year...

Red Wings expected to announce Pavel Datsyuk won’t return to team

Why did Cameron Frye wear a Gordie Howe jersey in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?

Though hockey fans might shake their heads at the circumstances, people of a certain age might be more familiar with hockey legend Gordie Howe (who passed away Friday at the age of 88) from his Detroit Red Wings jersey being worn by Cameron Frye (played by Alan Ruck) in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
