Red Wings Stay the Course

The Detroit faithful can be relieved that their simple style will not be tampered with the new RBK Edge jersey. Yesterday, the link was posted to pre-order the new jerseys on the Red Wings website and you could immediately see, there was no major change to the overall esthetic of the Red Wings brand. The logo didn't change and the design of the jersey only really changed by the form-fitting style of the RBK jerseys. Click on this link to see the ad that was posted.

Not a lot has changed in the Motor City since the last team update, but I thought I would refresh some memories with what the Red Wings will have to offer around training camp.

The Red Wings haven't made a signing in almost a month, but with this line-up, they don't really need to. In the crazy summer that was, the Red Wings only really shelled out cash to those who were already in the organization. I've done a bit more research into their salary numbers and found a few more figures and now the Wings 20-men line-up posted above is worth only $40.9 million (approx.). They have plenty of breathing space come deadline day and you know the Wings love to shop on deadline day, so when the puck drops... you'll know the Wings will not only be competitive, but they'll be cost efficient too.
