I always respected Hitchcock as a coach. I personally think the guy is a hockey genius on a level way above most other head coaches in the game. I think his only strike against him is how he treats his players. If he was an assistant coach under Babcock, then I'm sure he'd be more relaxed.

And he said he wants to come to camp to "learn", I think what he means by that is how to handle players more appropriately in the new age. I'm sure his old school methods were fine in the 80s and 90s, but it seems now players need their ego stroked cough*Ovechkin*cough*Crosby*cough.

There is no denying the guy is a hockey genius though.

EDIT: On a side note, I also noticed that redwingcentral scouting reports sometimes have scouting reports from Hitchcock. You can see one of his quotes in Ericsson's profile.

"He reminds me of (Vladimir) Malakhov, the way he plays and the way he skates. He has all of the body language of Vladdie with just his mobility and his ability to be calm with the puck." — Columbus Blue Jackets head coach Ken Hitchcock

Beaten to the punch by Columbus? This is a dark day. Maybe Scott Howson skulks.

With this news, I can't imagine this whole hanging out at the Red Wings camp idea still happens.

The reason his coming here is for Babcock to learn an extra trick or two.

Former NHL Coach Helps Stop Shoplifter By Pinning Him Against A Wall

btw found this on wiki...lol

Once while on a car trip with assistant coach Doug Jarvis while they were both coaching for Dallas in the late 90s the two stopped for large coffees and a dozen donuts. Shortly after the stop Doug Jarvis fell asleep when he woke up an hour later Ken Hitchcock had finished all 12 donuts and both of the large coffees.

For some reason I never really thought about the correllation between losing McClellan and the difference of our '08 and '09-'10 defence.

Maybe Hitch is the answer. If that happens, kudos the Holland and the crew.
