The Detroit Red Wings may have undertaken another significant upgrading of their roster this summer, but it hasn’t done much to impress the oddsmakers at online sports betting sites.
The latest 2023-24 Stanley Cup odds at BetMGM are showing the Red Wings as the 19th betting choice to win the Cup next season. Detroit is getting odds of +5000, or 50-1, to be the team hoisting Lord Stanley’s mug aloft at season’s end. The Wings are given just a 2% chance of being Stanley Cup champions.
Among Atlantic Division clubs, Detroit is the seventh betting choice. The Red Wings are even behind Buffalo Sabres (+3500) and Ottawa Senators (+4000) and ahead of only the Montreal Canadiens (+150000).
Galchenyuk Threatens Police
When the Arizona Coyotes were unconditionally releasing veteran forward Alex Galchenyuk just two weeks after signing him as a free agent, heads were turning in disbelief.
As the reasons for this sudden turn of events became public knowledge, those same heads were nodding in agreement with the decision.
A police report shows the former Coyotes player allegedly threatened to cut out the organs of an officer's wife and child.

According to a police report obtained by KPNX 12 News, Galchenyuk threatened to cut a police offider and to remove the kidneys from his family members.
“I will end your bloodline,” Galchenyuk allegedly told Scottsdale, Arizona police.”One phone call and you’re dead.”
Galchenyuk is facing numerous charges. They include property hit and run, disorderly conduct, failure to obey, resisting arrest, and threatening or intimidating.

Red Wings Offseason
The maturity of Donovan Sebrango always impressed the Red Wings organization. As the defenseman left for Ottawa via the Alex DeBrincat trade, not surprisingly, Sebrango did so with class. “Thank you @DetroitRedWings and @griffinshockey
for the opportunity to turn my childhood dream into a reality,” Sebrango posted on Twitter. “I’ll forever be grateful for my time with this organization. Another thank you to the great teammates I had along the way and the fans for your unwavering support!”
