This just in: NHL officials hired to study whether or not enforcers would improve the efficacy of the Chicago police force, or whether they would tarnish the city's government's reputation, which, historically speaking, is right up there with the trustworthiness of NHL officials. Crosby named most valuable consultant. LGW discusses.
I have to admit that if I started my own company doing the same thing that I'm doing now, I would hire a couple of friends from my current job. I'd have to hire people anyway. I'd rather hire people that I know and trust to do the job right, and who I know are on the same page as I am. I wouldn't dismantle the place that I'm working now, but if you are going to start something, you need the foundation in place.
I think that at least a couple of my friends would come with me because I'd be giving them higher positions than they have now. I'd be taking people who aren't on the top right now, and putting them in the top in my new company.
Taking a couple of people from the middle isn't going to hurt the current company. That's what happening here. Those couple of people in the middle are replaceable. How many of you had even heard of the capologist? He's not gutting the Wings. He's giving people new opportunities. Those people can be replaced. People move around a lot. Detroit has people like Stevie who stay here forever. This is not the norm. Most people have moved at some point in their career.
I can't help but feel like you're attacking me there. Sorry that I only like to see the Wings win the Stanley Cup, and really don't care who wins otherwise (not that I don't like watching it, I just don't have an opinion one way or another). Sorry to offend you so badly. I guess I can't make a comment saying that a thread like "please chicago win the stanley cup" is best reserved for a Hawks forum (being a rival fan, making a rival comment). I guess poking a little fun at you guys that want Philly or the Hawks to win is also a bad thing (like by saying it makes me sick). Some of you fellas on here need to lighten up a little bit.
It is odd to see a thread with that title on a Wings forum. Unfortunately, there are those who feel that they can tell the rest of us who we can or can't root for, and how our choice determines the depth of our love for the Wings.
Sorry for any bad thoughts I sent your way. Since you're not one of those, I'll go back and give you a +. Pax?
