Columbus sucked long before Hitchcock got there and they will suck long after.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

One thing I noticed at that rules camp a few weeks ago, Hitch has lost a lot of weight. I had to do a double take on him.

The contract he had in Columbus included and indefinite supply of Whoppers.

Babcock and Hitchcock coaching the same team... hahahah no comment. But on a serious note, if we got Hitch as an assistant that'd be huge. (Hahaha the puns just keep on coming)

Very, very slim chance he signs here. But it'd be oh so sweet if he did.

Although, since he probably won't get a gig (as jobs everywhere, even for sports types) are non-existent as a head coach, might as well do assistant, get some excellent references from Holland and Babcock, and then move on next season. Be better than sitting the season out or going to Europe.

Crap, now I've got my hopes up.

Id hire him right away if he enjoyed his experience with the wings, I think he would be an excellent eye in the sky, someone who can sit in the stands enjoy the game share his findings in practice with the team and the coach.

I think this is directly related to their team Canada experiences last year. Beauty eh!

I guess I'm the only one who really doesn't like this guy. Not that I'm a McCrimmon fan by any means, but just say "no" to Hitchcock. He's unemployed for a reason.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

My thoughts as well...There appears to be alot of mutual respect between Babs, and Hitch.

I guess I'm the only one who really doesn't like this guy. Not that I'm a McCrimmon fan by any means, but just say "no" to Hitchcock. He's unemployed for a reason.

My only concern would be the potential friction if Hitch were hired, but then again in the past Scotty Bowman was an assistant in Pittsburgh when they won their Cups in the early 90's.

Personally I think Hitch would make a great addition to the club; he knows his hockey, and what he has to offer would be an asset.

With all the hollywood stuff going on in Detroit, I think hes just trying to revive his old show. I heard hes trying to recruit McCrimmon to play the role of Green Jeans so all you haters can take comfort.

lol, can you imaging Hitchcock as our defensive coach? That's like a Redwings wet dream :D

On a serious note, would Holland be the kind of guy who would just fire McCrimmon to bring in Hitch? CuJo/Hasek aside, its just not the Redwings way
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Love Hitch. The players here in Columbus revolted against him. They work in a country club atmosphere and couldn't handle a blue collar approach to playing (working, it is their job after all). I really wouldn't mind seeing him come here, win a Cup, and get a head coaching job somewhere again and defeat the Jackets in the playoffs. I don't really think that our D needs the drill sergeant type and I don't think that he would be in Hockeytown. He would learn to tone it down and trust his vets a little more and be more well rounded (no pun intended). But, when his future team needed it, Lee Ermey (Full Metal Jacket) All The Way!!!

If Hitch signs up, this team will officially be a juggernaut in my eyes. I know there is a pun there somewhere.

This looks as if our hopes have been dashed. He is staying in Columbus!

H-cock staying in Columbus Which now makes me wonder, why Babcock and Holland said he could attend camp.
lighten up people, it's the internet!
