Red Wings Wisely Choose Daley Over Cholowski

February 16th, 2019 Look, the Detroit Red Wings are in a jam, a defensive logjam. As a result, top defensive prospect Dennis Cholowski is now rounding out his game with the Grand Rapids Griffins. https://twitter.com/DetroitRedWings/status/1096253129291718657 In all honesty, I’m fine with this, for a couple of...

Trade Deadline

During a recent interview, Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland stated that his goal for the organization is to return to contention in 2019-20. After missing the past two postseasons and on-pace to do the same this season, Holland is rightfully hungry for a competitive team. “As I make decisions over the next three weeks, what will have the most impact to me is, I want us to be better next season,” Holland told Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press. The 2019 NHL Trade Deadline, 2019 NHL Draft and free agency period present Holland with three opportunities to improve his bottom-five team, though their record doesn’t tell the whole story. As St. James pointed out, the Red Wings are 12-7-2 with both Danny DeKeyser and Mike Green in the lineup – good enough for 26 points in 21 games. It’s a small sample size, but a pretty solid quarter-season record for a rebuilding team. Related: Red Wings’ 4 Burning Questions Ahead of the Deadline So, how far off...

NHL Entry Draft

What’s The Grind Line? Apart from the once-famous line of Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby, and either Joe Kocur or Darren McCarty, The Grind Line is also The Hockey Writers’ weekly column about the Detroit Red Wings. Rachel Anderson and Tony Wolak are the muckers who makeup THW’s forechecking unit and sound off on Red Wings topics. This week, we've also added guest contributor, Brandon Share-Cohen. Despite the barrage of negative chatter surrounding Ken Holland, the Detroit Red Wings general manager has one quality that could be considered “redeeming” to the critical eye. His ability to stack draft picks. For more than 20 seasons now, the Red Wings have had tremendous success in the NHL Entry Draft - reaching an incredible 10 picks in the 2018 Draft alone. Making difficult trades and side deals always play a role, but Detroit has come away from the last few drafts on the winning side. In the upcoming 2019 NHL Entry Draft, there is once again a very stacked prospect...

Trade Deadline

Less than three weeks separate the Detroit Red Wings from the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline. And unlike the previous two seasons, the organization may not completely sell. In a recent interview with the Detroit Free Press, general manager Ken Holland noted that his decision-making process would be guided by his preference to be competitive as soon as next season and the buyer/seller distribution of NHL teams. One of our goals to build a team that will be competitive next season. We want to get back to the playoffs. Unless something dramatic happens, it looks like we will miss the playoffs for a third straight year. If I trade away a number of players that can help us next season, unless I get prospect back who is ready to play in the NHL, those assets won’t help us for three, four, years. With Holland’s positioning in mind, there are still a few questions that need to be answered before the trade deadline. Let’s dive in. Related: The Red Wings’ 2019 Deadline Trade Chips How...
