Commodore is a douchebag.

First we give E 3 and a quarter per, then we sign this clown? What the f*** is happening?


Did Kenny stop taking his meds or something?




Where is Ashton hiding at? Are we all getting punked?

We just signed a guy whose name makes me think of a toilet?

Oh, well. Life goes on.


So he's not a guy in Lionel Richie's band? f***!!

Cap space for what? Who is the imaginary 27-year-old, hard-checking, 6'3", fast-skating, puck-moving, 40-point unrestricted free agent defenseman we are going to sign with this cap space? Paul Mara? You show me the magical splash that can be made this offseason and I'll show you Bigfoot. Believe me, there will be cap space left over after the offseason, and so much the better because it'll allow both trade flexibility and better activity in the market in the future. This market sucks for defensemen.

You forgot that part about how he'll sign for $2 million per just for the privilege of playing for the Red Wings. But otherwise QFT.

...give the guy a chance before deciding its horrible because he went into the wings bench once.


The guy was sent down last year for not getting along with his coaches, and has in the past publicly stated that Mike Babcock was a detriment to his career. Babcock, for those who don't seem to remember, is our head coach. In what way do we need to "give this a chance" to see that it just MIGHT be a bad idea?

I don't understand this signing I remember reading a few years ago how Commodore dident like Babcock's style and he felt that Babcock hurt his career.

Even the NHL doesn't consider this guy a defenseman. If this is Holland's big move on defense Illitch better be making a big move for a new GM.

Help me out here guys, there must be another Mike Commodore that I've never heard of right?

Because the only Mike Commodore I can think of

* Is fat, lazy and sucks

* Got sent to the AHL by the BJ's (the BJ's!) for being fat, lazy and sucking

* Fell out with Mike Babcock (aka our current coach) when he called him out for being fat, lazy and sucking

* Got bought out by the BJs for being fat, lazy and sucking

* Is fat, lazy and sucks

If someone could give me a short potted history of this other Mike Commodore I'd be very grateful k thks
"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

Why do you people have it stuck in your head that this is a big move on defense? A bottom pairing guy was needed, and if he doesn't achieve that #6 spot? Then that means Kindl outplayed him and earned that spot.

Please at least smack Patrick Kane's jerkoff face with that gut once or twice.

Over a guy who couldnt crack the NHL with Edmonton.


Everyone forgets how good Commy was with Carolina in the playoffs, he got a big pay day from Columbus for that reason. He is big, plays physical, will fight and clear the crease. He is a great signing as a guy to rotate in and out with Smith and Kindl.

He was bad with Columbus but so is pretty much anyone not named Rick Nash, give the guy a chance before deciding its horrible because he went into the wings bench once. People will forget all about it when hes out there and noone is digging at Howard without getting put on their ass


Indeed, I almost forgot that in the play-offs you clutch and grab. He is a master in this. Just a bit worse than Hal Gill.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

commodore is surely aware that mike babcock coaches the red wings, so i am guessing he is over what ever past problems he had with him

still a big upside with this signing despite its lack of excitability

with the slim pickings on defense, we should sign a forward who can make a big impact cause you don't need to defend when you have the puck

Wait change those words from Commodore to Williams and defense to offense and you have the Wings 2 seasons ago.

The wings lost one of the best puck moving D men, if you aren't aware what has made Detroit so good at puck possession in the past was their Defenses' ability to make the first past out of the zone.

If you aren't aware, the Wings also lost a 36 year old bottom pairing DMan. People, Commodore is NOT Rafalski's replacement! Jiminy! $1m for 1 year for a guy who hits, fights, plays stay at home D? What's the beef here?
