7th D, big and still 31 ... experience and only 1 million for 1 year ... NO PROBLEM FOR ME.



I'm not sure that he will be our 7th D - he might turn to be great addition, keep Cleary/Eaves/Miller in your mind. What will be relation now between Bab's and Commodore 64??? :)

He's tough and cheap. Good #6, now bring in a top 4 defenceman Kenny.


Good number 6? So Smith and Kindl sit? I hope FatAss Mike will be 7th dman at best.

Babcock was a rookie NHL coach during the 2002-03 season and Commodore had just arrived via a trade from New Jersey. Commodore, who had played 57 NHL games for the Devils, said Babcock screamed at him during a drill on the first day of training camp. Commodore later watched as a player fresh from junior hockey, Kurt Sauer, got promoted ahead of him.

"It didn't take long before I knew I had a one-way ticket to (minor-league affiliate) Cincinnati," Commodore said.

He admits he took a poor attitude to the minors, where he spent three or four nights a week drinking. The Ducks recalled Commodore twice, but he never played in a game.

The defenseman says Babcock ripped him in the media, although he can't recall the particulars.

"It was something to the effect that I had no business in the league," Commodore said. "My (father) is still mad about it."


The Wings are also going to be driving me to drinking if this keeps up.

Clearly Holland signed Commodore so we will be complaining less about Ericsson.

I don't necessarily have a problem with this as long as he uses his size and is a real ******* to our opponents.

I guess Holland needed some place to hide hudler and Mike Commodore's hair was available for 900k and the body attached came for an extra 100k.

That's hilarious.

You know, every year the Wings have trouble with injuries. Maybe Commode's our designated injury guy. He gets injured so other players don't have to. Maybe? Please?

As long as he's a 7th d-man and not a regular, this is a solid move.
