The Current Tampa Bay Lightning Or The Detroit Red Wings From The 1995-96 Season

from Joe Smith of The Athletic,

When Red​ Wings executive Jimmy​ Devellano​ watches​ the Lightning​ from​ his​ lower-bowl​ seats​ at​ Amalie​​ Arena, it’s like taking a trip through time.

There’s the Canadian-born captain determined to end a decade-long quest for the Stanley Cup.

The Norris Trophy-winning defenseman from Sweden who can control a game.

The dynamic Russian forward making magic every night.

Yes, this Lightning team looks an awful lot like the mid-1990s Red Wings juggernaut that Devellano helped build as the former general manager. So it’s no surprise to him that Tampa Bay is chasing the 1995-96 Detroit team that won 62 games (and a record 131 points).

One Tough Man

from Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press,

At the end of the season, if you’re the best player in the NHL, the trophy they give you is named after Ted Lindsay. That’s all you really need to know. He won four Stanley Cups and once led the league in scoring, was a Red Wings general manager and briefly their coach, and those accomplishments don’t begin to tell this guy’s story. Compact and powerful, he never grew beyond 5 foot 8, and by the time he reached his 90s, old age had stooped him even more. But no one stood taller than Ted Lindsay in the world of hockey.

No one.

And now that he has passed away, he hovers above the game for real.

Throw the switch. Close down the plant. The Production Line is finally at rest. Sid Abel departed at age 81 and Gordie Howe made it until 88. Lindsay was the last to go, living to within four months of his 94th birthday before passing away Monday at his home in Oakland Township. No surprise he got the longevity prize. Ted, in his way, was always the toughest.

“I liked the corners,” he once told the media, and the only players who say that are the ones unafraid of a fight. Lindsay was not only unafraid, he looked forward to the contact.

Afternoon Line- Chris Chelios On Ted Lindsay

“Every player should be thanking their lucky stars there was someone like Ted Lindsay to start that Players Association and make it great for all of us down the road. It’s hard. It’s politics. He always said he hated politics. He stood up. What he did, he should be honored forever, and every player in the league should get to know Ted Lindsay’s story and what he meant to the NHL and the Players Association.”

-Chris Chelios.  Ansar Khan of Mlive has more.

Statement From Don Fehr On The Passing Of Ted Lindsay

TORONTO (March 4, 2019)   The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) released the following statement from Executive Director Don Fehr regarding the passing of Ted Lindsay:  

“All current and former NHL players lost a true friend with the passing of Ted Lindsay. “Terrible Ted” was one of the fiercest competitors to ever play in the NHL, and he enjoyed great success on the Detroit’s fabled “Production Line”, helping lead the Red Wings to four Stanley Cup championships. On the ice, Ted Lindsay was one of the best players to ever to put on a pair of skates.  

But his greatest legacy was off the ice. A true trailblazer in seeking to improve conditions for all players, Ted was instrumental in organizing the original Players’ Association in 1957. All Players, past, current and future, are in his debt. All those who have, and will follow him into the NHL, enjoy improved rights and benefits in large part due to the efforts he made. 

In recognition for Ted’s extraordinary contributions on the players’ behalf, the NHLPA proudly renamed our ‘Most Outstanding Player’ award after him in 2010. It was special that Ted and his beloved late wife Joanne were a part of that process. He appreciated the honour that was bestowed on him, and it was a pleasure having him on-hand to present his namesake award on six separate occasions. Ted deserves many accolades for his work on and off the ice in hockey, but the charitable work he has done in recent years to support autism research and educational programs through the Ted Lindsay Foundation is simply incredible and is a testament to Ted’s character. He simply never stopped giving back and helping others.

The players are much better off today thanks to Ted Lindsay. His passing leaves a significant void, and he will be greatly missed by the entire hockey world and beyond. On behalf of all current NHL players and the NHLPA’s staff, I pass along heartfelt condolences to Ted’s family and friends.”

Cholowski and Rasmussen show promise for the Detroit Red Wings

In terms of results, the opening week of the 2018-19 NHL season was an unsuccessful one for the Detroit Red Wings, as they lost their first two matches to currently sit at the foot of the table in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic Division.

But to take a look at the much bigger picture, the start of the season has not come without promise. Amidst trimming their roster in pre-season, prospects Michael Rasmussen and Dennis Cholowski were retained, with Coach Jeff Blashill eyeing the potential impact each man can make
