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.

Sameulsson Heads To Vancouver

Monday, July 6th, 2009

The Red Wings roster shake up continued last week when free agent Mikael Samuelsson signed a three year deal with Vancouver.

He was an important part of the Red Wings team over the years. He had his ups and downs but overall he was a great asset.

Samuelsson admitted that the reason he decided to leave was for the money. That’s a shame but oh well, it opens a spot for somebody who wants to play for the Red Wings. I’d rather have a player who’s heart is in it than someone who just cares about money.

Good luck to Sammy in Vancouver, but may they never beat the Red Wings.
