Last year, it was Kevin Shattenkirk. This year, it is Mike Green. Every year, when the trade deadline approaches, several teams are eager to land a power-play quarterback with no long-term commitment. Green fits that bill perfectly and is probably a better all-around defenceman than Shattenkirk, so there will be no shortage of interest in

As we get closer to the 2018 NHL Trade Deadline, it’s becoming more and more apparent that the Detroit Red Wings will be sellers. While their record indicates that playoffs are still a possibility—albeit an unlikely one—another year committed to the rebuild will do the franchise some good down the road. Selling at the deadline

Let’s start with the obvious for the Detroit Red Wings: there’s a lot to be desired after their pitiful 10-1 loss over the weekend to the average-at-best Montreal Canadiens. Just about every facet of the team failed during that Saturday night matchup. The flip side of the loss is that there’s only one way to

My first memory of Chris Osgood is when he played for the old AHL Adirondack Red Wings. Between the Albany fans and Adirondack fans who made the trip down the Northway from Glens Falls in bunches, it was hard not to hear chants raining down his name. One didn’t need a program with stats either

Maybe the league should hold an expansion draft every year. The Golden Knights keep finding ways to win. They’re three for three in franchise history, and with
