The Red Wings will not scrimmaging after the practice on Saturday. They will be flying down to Detroit to attend Brad McCrimmon's funeral instead. The link below was on MLive this morning.

I so totally understand this decision. I only wish that someone going to the service could leave a red carnation for me. There's a story behind it, and I wish it could happen.

You mentioned the carnation story in one of the other threads and it just shows how awesome a person McCrimmon was.


I'm glad the Wings are going to the funeral, definitely the right thing to do.

Classy move, and I totally understand. Does anyone know if Sundays schedule has changed at all?

Detroit Red Wings Training Camp
Good morning! We are still waiting on the final revised schedule for Saturday's events. We can confirm on-ice practice starts at 7:05 am. Your ticket for Saturday will also be accepted for admission to either Wednesday, 9/21/11 or Thursday, 9/22/2011 morning skates. This schedule change is due to the team's attendance of Brad McCrimmon's funeral Saturday.

Totally off topic, but do you know how many years it's been since I've heard someone say "cool beans!"

Flashback.

I wish I knew where and when....Wouldn't it be awesome to line the streets of the procession route to salute our "family memeber..." It would be...

We should all try to attend! (at least the ones "in town.")

It's hard to say where it will be, but if you can find out, it would be sweet to have some of us there.

There will be a time for giving of condolence cards Saturday morning. I plan to do so. They will be given to the family before the service.

I know exactly where that church is, as as much as I'd like to pay my respects I don't know that I'd be able to go for the visitation, it just doesn't feel right. I'm glad the guys are making the trip back here to attend - yes it screws up some plans for the fans but this is far more important.

Thanks Offsides

Cards for Brad McCrimmon's family may be dropped off at Centre ICE Arena today (Wednesday) from 2:30 - 7:00 pm or on Saturday morning from 7:00 -9:00 a.m. We will be sure the cards are sent with DRW to the funeral. No stuffed animals or flowers, please, just cards. If you are not from the Traverse City area, you may send a sympathy card through the funeral home's website, www.heeney-sundquist
