No major news has occurred today. The Wings are set to have a press conference at noon today regarding the Winter Classic.
- According to Mlive, Scotty Bowman has been chosen as the coach for the Red Wings Alumni game on December 31st against the Maple Leafs Alumni. After winning 3 cups in Detroit this makes total sense as there hasn’t been a better coach ever. The full rosters for the game will be released today around noon at the Red Wings press conference.
- July 25th has been set as the arbitration date for Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey. The RFA has until then to negotiate a new contract with the Wings. If no contract is agreed upon then an arbitrator will determine a salary. The Wings can then chose whether to use this salary over one or two years.
- If you are interested in reading about how the Wings current prospect camp is going I highly recommend you go check out The Malik Report and The Left Wing Lock. Both sites have very good and detailed coverage of the Wings prospect camp.
- Red Wings defenseman Brendan Smith has reportedly said that he is treating this camp like a vacation. It is obvious that he is 5 notches better than everyone there, however, that doesn’t mean that he should blow it off. Maybe he is just resting himself up for the training camp this September?
I am currently on vacation so I apologize in advance for not being up to date with everything.
