More Red Wings Injury Updates

Monday, February 8th, 2010

The biggest news is that Johan Franzen is definitely going to be in the lineup for tomorrow night’s game. Woo hoo! He’s been out for most of the season with a torn ACL and he’s been sorely missed. Hopefully, his presence will provide some much needed offense.

In other good news, Drew Miller, who hurt his ankle blocking a shot, is expected to play tomorrow. His injury must not have been too severe.

The bad news is that Kronwall won’t play, but only because he’s waiting for a new knee brace. I guess that means that once he gets the brace he’ll be ready to go. All things considered that news could have been a lot worse.

In other bad news, Holmstrom might play but they won’t decide for sure in until tomorrow, and Patrick Eaves most likely will not play because of a sprained ankle.

Bertuzzi Returning to Detroit

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

The Red Wings have signed Todd Bertuzzi again to a one year deal. That addition along with Patrick Eaves and the return of Jason Williams is expected to offset the loss of Hossa, Samuelsson, and Hudler.

The Wings now have a salary cap problem and will have to drop some players. They’re expecting more production from the younger players coming up from Grand Rapids.

It’ll be interesting to see how good the Wings will be next season. I’m inclined to think they will be a little bit worse, but it all depends on how much the younger guys can step up and contribute.
