What key decisions await the Clippers this offseason?

The Clippers took the L, took the lump and all that’s left is to come back and take another crack at the franchise’s elusive first championship. What will they look like when they get back up off the mat after blowing a 3-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series against Denver and try, try again? Will they run it back with the nucleus that finished 49-23 and earned the second seed in the Western Conference, the highest seeding in franchise history? Or will Clippers’ forward-thinking, ...

Trick-or-What? Pandemic Halloween is a mixed bag all around

By Leanne Italie | The Associated Press Roving grown-ups tossing candy at kids waiting on lawns. Drive-thru Halloween haunts. Yard parties instead of block parties and parades. Wider paths through corn mazes. The family holiday so many look forward to each year is going to look different in the pandemic as parents and the people who provide Halloween fun navigate a myriad of restrictions and safety concerns. Some were looking extra-forward to Halloween this year because it falls on a Saturday, w...

‘Nothing left in the bucket’: Wildfire resources run thin

By JAMES ANDERSON and MATTHEW BROWN | Associated Press Justin Silvera came off the fire lines in Northern California after a grueling 36 straight days battling wildfires and evacuating residents ahead of the flames. Before that, he and his crew had worked for 20 days, followed by a three-day break. Silvera, a 43-year-old battalion chief with Cal Fire, California’s state firefighting agency, said he’s lost track of the blazes he’s fought this year. He and his crew have sometimes been on duty for ...

Predicting Detroit’s Opening Lineup

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press answered a question from a fan regarding Detroit's openng lineup... On defense, I think Moritz Seider will be in the lineup on opening night. The 19-year-old defenseman is currently with his former team, Adler Mannheim in Germany, part of a group of Wings loaned to European teams until the NHL gives the go-ahead on camps. Seider did well playing for the Griffins last season, and would have been called up to play a few games had the pandemic n...

Needed: Talent

from Corey Pronman of The Athletic, I took a glance at all 31 teams’ depth charts to get an idea of what is the most glaring organizational need heading into the 2020 NHL Draft. These needs may not be the No. 1 priority to address, as it depends on how the board plays out, but something I think is worth considering. Detroit Red Wings: Talent Detroit had 23 fewer points than the second-lowest team in the league. It had a strong albeit not incredible farm system. It has some good pl...

Daddy’s Hangout 2020 NFL Opening Week Predictions

It has finally arrived and that’s the 2020 NFL season. With all that’s going on in the world with the pandemic, we didn’t know we’d actually get here. The NBA, NHL and WNBA are playing in a bubble, while the MLB is toughing it out without fans. The NFL hasn’t reported any major issues and the season is going on with no fans to begin with. We kick things off this season on a Thursday night as always. The Houston Texans travel to Kansas City to face the Super Bowl champion Chiefs. We finish the ...

Analysis: Rams defense position-by-position breakdown

THOUSAND OAKS — The Rams plan to have a big-play defense in 2020. In the good way. Too few forced turnovers and too many lapses late in the year kept the Rams from turning around games or saving their season in 2019. Legendary defensive coach Wade Phillips wasn’t asked back. Young Brandon Staley was brought in as coordinator. Staley’s success with a unit that aims to be aggressive and creative will depend on Cory Littleton’s and Dante Fowler’s replacements at linebacker, the benefit of full seas...

What Kind Of Goalies Do The Wings Need?

What To Expect From The Detroit Red Wings

Scott Burnside of The Athletic on what to expect from all 31 teams in the short offseason. On the Wings.. So many holes in this lineup that somehow managed to compile a minus-122 goal differential in just 71 games. But you’ve got to start somewhere, right? Let’s start with the premise that this team is three or four years away from legitimately returning to playoff contention. So, this isn’t about signing a flashy free agent to plug a particularly gaping hole along the blue line or in g...

The Detroit Red Wings Lack A Modern-Day Rivalry

The Colorado Avalanche. The Chicago Blackhawks. The Toronto Maple Leafs. Even the Pittsburgh Penguins. What do these teams have in common? At one point or another, they were considered rivals of the Detroit Red Wings. The list is not limited to those four teams; an Original Six franchise like the Red Wings has a storied history with almost every team in the league. However, a true, bitter rivalry has been hard to come by in 2020. Related: 3 Biggest Trades in Red Wings History Maybe it’s...

Checking In And Up On The 19

The 19, AKA Wings fans here at A2Y, haven't had much to talk or cheer about since the last Detroit game was in mid-March. Just wanted to make sure all of you are doing okay or at least keeping your head above water like I am. Hopefully our game will be back as we know it but I have a feeling we still have another 4-5 months of what will tomorrow bring. Check in to say hi, gives us an update or just say Go Wings.  You are missed.

Clippers’ Marcus Morris produces and plays instigator in opening round of playoffs

When fans think back on Marcus Morris Sr.’s role in the Clippers’ Western Conference first-round series win against the Dallas Mavericks, the first thing that comes to mind likely will be his Game 6 ejection, the result of his chop to the back of Luka Doncic’s neck as Morris defended his drive to the basket. And then they’ll probably recall the debate about whether Morris did or didn’t intentionally step on Doncic’s sprained left foot in Game 5 — Morris, let’s not forget, says no way was it purp...

Getting to the heart of America’s racial discord

America was already in the middle of an unprecedented crisis. Tensions were high. Millions were desperate for work. Then, as the heat of summer settled over the country, the simmering racial cauldron boiled over. America in 2020? Yes, but this was also America in 1943. The past is indeed prologue. While our soldiers fought their way across North Africa and island hopped in the South Pacific, the home front exploded in violence. For three days in June of 1943, African Americans and White American...

As COVID rages, US economy struggles to sustain a recovery

By PAUL WISEMAN | AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON — Home sales are booming. Stocks are setting record highs. Industrial production is clambering out of the ditch it fell into early this year. And yet the U.S. economy is nowhere close to regaining the health it achieved, with low unemployment, free-spending consumers and booming travel, before the coronavirus paralyzed the country in March. Not while the viral outbreak still rages and Congress remains deadlocked over providing more relief to tens ...

Revisiting the Red Wings’ 1983 Draft

The 1983 NHL Entry Draft is one of the most fascinating in history. From this class, 113 players reached the NHL (46.7 percent) and won 21 Stanley Cups, and four players made the Hockey Hall of Fame. The Detroit Red Wings made out reasonably in this draft. They were in the midst of their “Dead Wings” era, with only two playoff appearances between 1967-83. But on June 8, 1983, the franchise changed forever. We begin with first-round selection, future captain, and current general manager Stev...

They Wore It Once: Ducks Players and Their Unique Numbers

The Anaheim Ducks have had several iconic sweater numbers throughout their 26-year history. At the top of that list are Paul Kariya, Teemu Selanne and Scott Niedermayer, with their numbers, 8, 9 and 27 respectively, retired by the franchise. You can expect a few more names to be added to that list in the future, with Ducks fans clamoring for the likes of Jean-Sebastien Giguere to be added and the eventual additions of Ryan Getzlaf’s number 15 and Corey Perry’s number 10.

Mike Green Plans To Retire

Green told The Athletic, in an exclusive interview via phone from his home in suburban Calgary this week, that he intends to retire after a 15-year career that also made stops in Detroit and, briefly, Edmonton. At 34 years old, Green is healthy and still has some hockey left in...

Wings Sign Robby Fabbri To A Two-Year Contract Extension

DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today signed forward Robby Fabbri to a two-year contract extension. Fabbri, 24, was acquired in a trade with the St. Louis Blues on Nov. 6, 2019 in exchange for center Jacob de la Rose and logged 31 points (14-17-31) and 18 penalty minutes in 17:16 average ice time over 52 games for Detroit.

Out Of Respect For Vartan Kupelian

Some of you may remember the name of Vartan Kupelian, once a beat writer for the Wings.  He passed away today at the age of 73.

Welcome back to Throwback Thursday, where we comb the THN archives to bring you something from our past.

Rams DT Michael Brockers happy to be back in pads

THOUSAND OAKS — The annual head-count of players at the first Rams training-camp session open to reporters turned up little immediate reason to worry, with only one starter sitting out Tuesday’s beginning of padded practices, and that because of an injury described as minor. One relief was seeing Michael Brockers looking completely healthy. “I feel like a baby in water a little bit, man, just putting these pads on for the first time in (eight) months,” said Brockers, his way with words intact as...

Will Cleveland's season unravel over pitchers breaking COVID protocol?

If you only looked at the AL Central standings to inform you of how things are going in the division, you would see a pretty predictable picture even in the midst of an unpredictable season. The Twins are 14-8 after 22 games, leading the way in this shortened 60-game season. Cleveland is one game behind at 13-9, while an improving Chicago squad is 11-11. Detroit and Kansas City are below .500 and likely to fall even lower. Cleveland's record includes a weekend sweep of Detroit, which would furth...

How Los Angeles icons Angelyne and Joan Didion connect in ‘City at the Edge of Forever’

In these essays, Lunenfeld, vice chair of UCLA’s Design Media Arts department, takes a deep look into the sprawling city’s history, lore, literature, architecture and design. And, of course, its transportation. “I really was inte...

A Look Back at the Sharks’ 2013 Draft Class

One of the unfortunate aspects of the NHL Draft is that not every pick is guaranteed to make it to the NHL. It all depends on how well the players selected by general managers end up developing. However, the San Jose Sharks came out of their 2013 draft quite poorly – to this day, only one of their picks from that draft class, Mirco Mueller, has played an NHL game. Today, we’ll take a look at the players the Sharks selected in the 2013 draft, where they are now, and which notable players were sel...

Kings Once Again Seek Answers After Missing Playoffs

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – All the momentum the Sacramento Kings had when the NBA season shut down in March disappeared when they arrived in the bubble. The disappointing performance in Florida has left the Kings on the outside of the playoffs for the 14th straight season. That’s the longest active drought in the NBA and led to change in the front office with Vlade Divac stepping down as general manager. “I feel like you’re always trying to play your best basketball late into March and April and I tho...
