If they were in before mandatory helmets, do they have to wear them? I haven't seen an alumni game (hope someone is streaming these ones), so I don't know what they've done.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

CONFIRMED: Scotty Bowman will coach the Detroit Red Wings in the 2012 Alumni Showdown as part of the SiriusXM Hockeytown Winter Festival. Barry Smith will assist Scotty behind the bench.



Additionally, former Red Wing Red Kelly will be the head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs with the assistance of Pat Quinn.

I thought it might be somewhat an issue because Scotty is a part of the Blackhawks organization, but it will be great to welcome him back. And perhaps be a bit more light-hearted considering the game doesn't mean anything.

This alumni game is becoming just so much bigger than any of the others ones have ever been. Great stuff.

If Scotty can coach, Steve can play. Come on Captain, take a couple shifts, give the crowd a thrill.

He could have an entrance like Hulk Hogan coming out of the tunnel before a match. fire works going off stone cold music and the announcers stopping and saying "dear god...is that who I think it is..it is that's STEVE YZERMAN...now it's going to be a slobber knocker"

You know, the term slobber knocker is just not used often enough outside of professional wrestling. I vow to use it more in everyday conversation.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

They are recommend to wear them but not all do.

One question, no Oates?

I would cry like a school girl if Yzerman shows up.

Vladdy! I can't believe it. When I first read that 4 of the 5 would play I assumed it'd be Koslov. This is amazing.

Vladdy will not be playing, he will have an ambassadorial position per the article.

Wings have a highlight video of the Russians posted. Watch it here.
Good times.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
