Training camp in Traverse City concludes today with the annual Red & White game, and the Red Wings will plunge into their eight-game preseason schedule tomorrow night in Pittsburgh.
It’ll still be 10-12 days until the bulk of the Griffins’ 2010-11 roster arrives in Grand Rapids, though. So until the local coverage kicks into high gear, we’ll have to be content with the coverage from Detroit-area media.
