Right now I'm feeling alright with the Red Wings. They are giving every team they face a real tough defensive game. They still lose more than they win but, that is to be expected. All I ask of them this year is that they give a good effort and be competitive in every game. They have been difficult to score on with some notable exceptions but for the most part, win or lose you can tell they gave their best effort. That's all I ask this year. We have some decent pieces for trade bait to pick up draft picks or prospects and hope the draft lottery is finally kind to us this year.

He was a stone wall and shut Detroit out in the 1st game of this little series. Admittedly, that is not a particularly great accomplishment this year. He was absolute shite in the second game.

Nice to see Berns is doing well for Detroit. He always had the talent, but injuries, particularly concussions, have really taken a toll on his career. I refuse to believe that smaller guys can't play goal in the NHL.

On a side note, Stevie Y said in an interview that the NHL is probably going to finally fix the idiotic changes that were made to the draft lottery, so that should benefit the Wings. It doesn't hurt that Brian Burke is now back in the room and he's been a vocal opponent of the new format.

I'd complain about the lottery "screwing" the Avs twice but really...the players they came away with were argulably better than the ones they would've had if they had retained first or second overall.

So all that said, Owen Power might look good alongside Moritz Seider in a Wings uniform...assuming the draft doesn't get booted a year down the road.

Exactly what you said, Skip. Though I would add that you want to see growth from the kids, and I'm not entirely sure that Blashill is the guy for that.

Unlikely hat trick from Sam Gagner...

Ex-Red Wing and Canuck, Todd Bertuzzi, was arrested Saturday morning on suspicion of Drink Driving. Bertuzzi flunked Field Sobriety tests and refused a Breath-Alyzer test. According to Auburn Hills, MI police the matter is still under investigation. Todd Bertuzzi is the uncle of current Red Wing, Tyler Bertuzzi.

Well, it's no secret Thomas Greiss is a VERY right-leaning individual, but I was unaware he posted a tribute to Rush Limbaugh on social media and it appears that the German National Team has quietly distanced themselves from him despite the fact that he's the second-best German goalie in the world at present.

As for this helmet design...yikes.

I don't know where he used those other masks. I really don't think the Red Wings could get away with bringing a closet nazi into Detroit. Bad idea, boys. This is the mask he uses for the Red Wings. There are no right-wing or nazi symbols on his helmet as near as I can tell. Where did you find the information that he was a right-winger, Tom? I went looking for some and I couldn't find any mention of it.
