Tanguay would score more points than Pav and/or Z?


No, I know Pavel would have more points than Tanguay if he didn't get injured. I was going by points people had this season

per the official DRW Facebook group:

Assistant coach Brad McCrimmon will not return for the 2011-12 season and will pursue other career opportunities. The entire organization wishes him the best in his future endeavors.


If that doesn't sound like getting canned I don't know what does.

Gotcha. Still Pavs was over a point per game.


Anyone have a guess as to when we'll find out who is the replacement? Do we have to wait until July 1st? Or is this the kind of thing they can do whenever, or possibly already have someone in mind?

Ugh the offseason can be so agonizing with waiting for news.

Holland is apparently on Espn961 now at 3pm ET talking about the Wings offseason plans.



I can't access it cos I'm not in the US though, boo, hiss.

But if anyone wants a listen...

-Touched on our playoffs
-Touched on Lidstrom's decision, hope he can make a decision before the draft.
-Touched on Mursak and what he could bring to our team
-Mentioned the first week or so of free agency is where the prime players get the prime dollars, and the other good players that last till around august that didn't get the contract they thought they'd get could be looked at
-Will be looking to improve the team a little bit, so he'll see what's out there through trades and free agency.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that Kenny also said that he sat and talked with every player to get feedback on what they think can help improve this team.

Sounded more like "we'll see what's available for us," but yes, I'm hoping he does something.

That's interesting. Hopefully he didnt take Ericsson or Hudlers suggestions to heart :ph34r:

could jiri Fischer be a possibility? not saying he should fill the position, but it could happen someday?


I do know he has been great with our young players and prospects.

Since McCrimmon was hired our defense was never the same. Great news for the fans and the teams present and future success. Wings should really think of hiring a very good coach, we've got kids coming up and they need good coaching. Anyone else think Ericsson's play might have something to do with McCrimmon?

From Windsor Star:

“Bob Boughner is a young coach that would likely have to be a candidate,” Wings GM Ken Holland said. “Obviously, he’s accomplished a lot as a junior coach. I think he’d have to be a name on our list."

Just to reiterate the majority of the sentiment of the thread: it's about time. I have personally called for this since the end of his first season. He has accomplished a lot as a player and a coach, but has never fit behind the Wing's bench. I expect to see Chelios next season.

I did have to give him props for this.

WOOOH!!! as the boston arena announcer would say. I'll only accept hitch or chelios. almost anything else would be selling this team short.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?
