    He's at Dick O'Dow's in Birmingham.  Funny thing is, I'd actually take that bet.  A buddy of mine see's him there all. the. time.
    I have a pretty funny story about Murph throwing a balled up napkin at my brother (who is from Denver) and telling my brother to go stick the napkin "up Claude Lemieux's A$$!!!"
    It's actually pretty interesting to think that: in his last years with us, he was likely the slowest player to ever play in the NHL.  It's was brutal.  However, if he did suit up he'd be even slower...which would mean that he'd be so far behind the play...that he'd be a threat for stretch pass breakaways (going the other way).  Hmm

    I will say though, as highly touted as Zadina was/is, I'm pretty surprised that he is taking so long to establish his dominance down on GR.  Today, I'm a bit disappointed.  Fan shock that he didn't make the Wings team after camp is proving to be unfounded.  He couldn't play on this team right now without looking highly exposed.  Still very, very hopeful.  Just thought we'd see some dominance fairly quickly after the hype he was given.

    I hear ya. I'm hoping he'll start to pick it up a bit here soon. Maybe after gaining some confidence at the WJC. It's very difficult for any 18 year old to make an impact right away in the pros, coming from junior. I'm not worried though. I still think he'll be a very good player for the Red Wings in the near future.
    You're impression has been that he is NHL-ready?
    I haven't seen that at all from the few games I've seen... He's shown flashes, but overall I've been pretty underwhelmed after each game I've seen...

    Yeah, it's definitely disappointing. I'd seen him play several times and my impression was he was NHL-ready. I'm not worried, though.
    Great skater, good size, good two-way game, showed well in training camp.

    He went through a 3 or 4 game stretch where he was floating (worse than I've ever seen), but he's played hard the past couple games. Last night in particular he was really moving his feet. Still not near enough pucks on net though.

    You'd be crazy not to call now and inquire about Quenneville. He's a world class coach and those don't come around too often. That said, if he agreed in principle to coaching the Wings, you still let Blashill finish out the season and get the lottery pick.  I'd love to have him, especially as we start turning the corner on this rebuild.

    But do you believe that Coach Q with 22 years of NHL coaching experience, 3 Stanley Cups, and 18 playoff appearances would be totally clueless on how to go forward with this younger team?  Like is Blash, with his few years of NHL experience and 1 playoff game win the only guy in the world that knows how to coach a younger, rebuilding team?  I think Coach Q would be just fine.  Actually, more than fine.  Again, I won't be upset if we don't get him, but I believe you always go out and get the very best if available.  If he did come here, he'd be fully aware of what he was walking into.  It's not like he'd be surprised at training camp and bail.  If we COULD get him, I'd likely do it under a long term deal.  
    Last point - it may be a lot easier and quicker to rebuild if you have a coach with a proven track record of winning cups, handling superstars, etc. to attract top players to come play for the Wings.  I don't think Blash gets any players in a frenzy with all of his hockey cred.

    Great points and I agree to some extent.
    However, coaching and staff don't go against your cap.  So when a good coach becomes available, I think you have to seriously consider.  If Coach Q came in under the following it may work: Stevie will be GM next year.  Assertions that EVERYTHING will be done to rebuild as quickly as possible, and that he'll get superstars within a few years.  Long term deal.  World class hockey town and fans.  Original 6 team.  Great, I mean GREAT money.  It may work.  
    Blash is doing as advertised BUT nothing more.  He's doing some good things with our youth and development.  However, when he was hired, I do believe the expectations were that he was going to do more than just be a great developmental coach to our younger players.  I believe he was expected to do bring these young guys along and put a competitive NHL.team on the ice.  He has not done this.  Not entirely his fault do to many personnel issues/retirements/bad signings. I wouldn't be upset if we didn't make a run at Coach Q, but I'd seriously consider it.  Good coaches are not easy to come by.
    Lastly, I believe Babs would have taken the Toronto job regardless if they were coming to the tipping point of going from a rebuild to being really competitive.  $50 million reasons why he likely did this.  Toronto threw a Brinks truck at him..why...cause good coaches are hard to find.  They don't go against your cap, and if you can get them and they align with your vision for the future of the team, you go out and get them.

    I'm getting rid of Moose.  Although I'm pretty disappointed in his effort and season he's currently having, Mantha just has too much upside to throw in the towel on him right now.  This may change, but this is how I look at this today..
