Wings Head To Arizona

from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,

Amid a few months of fairly intense, self-directed workouts at local rinks, several of the Red Wings leave Sunday for Arizona, where they will work out with some of the Phoenix Coyotes and other players from around the NHL.

As they hope for an end to the owners' lockout and a settlement on a collective bargaining agreement, the Red Wings are eying the calendar, realizing there is a lot of time to be made up.

They want to be in the best condition and as well-practiced as possible before the prospective start of an abbreviated training camp leading directly into a likely 48-game schedule, that will put great demands on them.

"Me, Horc, Howie, Kroner and maybe Ericsson and Monster are going," Danny Cleary said.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
