Blashill named AHL Coach of the Year

Hope we can keep him until the time is right to transition up. Maybe the fact that he's relatively young will be in our favor.

If Mantha truly does have a questionable work ethic, Blashill is the one that can cultivate that in him.

Edit: auto edit strikes again. Mods feel free to fix, thanks.

Wings go to Mexico

10 February 2014 - 02:15 AM

According to Bill Roose, Abby, Andy, and Smith are heading to Mexico for some sunny and warm R & R during the break. Anyone know where?

Just curious. We go every year, to a variety of places. Be interesting to know if they're doing an all inclusive resort or a nice high end vacation home somewhere.

It might be Illich, not Holland

Today I got to listen to a lot of Red Wings talk on Vancouver's team 1040

Doug McLean talked about his time in Detroit as assistant GM to Brian Murray. He said it was an amazing organization to be a part of. He said his first day on the job was the day after Fedorov defected. Amazing times for sure.

But he said two things of significance relevant to the way Holland does business.

McLean and Murray were called down to the Fox theater to see Mike Illitch. The security guard said to them, " you're going up to the 10th floor to see Mr. Ilitch. If you come back down, you will be a changed person for the rest of your life."

McLean said that he and Murray we're about to trade Jimmy Carson for Paul Coffey and Ilitch really grilled them about it. Illitch loved Carson and did not want to see him go.

The second thing he said was that Illitch fired Murray on a Friday afternoon, and Murray came out and told McLean he was fired also.

Monday morning 8 AM Illitch called McLean and said you were fired Friday afternoon. And McLean said yeah I know. Ilitch said you still have one year left on your deal. If you don't get another job by then, I'll give you another job.

Illitch is the problem. He treats these guys like family and hates to see any of them go!

Sky train to Canuck game

I guess we'll be parking at King George Station and taking the Skytrain in . We're coming from Bellingham.

We ll, now my buddy says lets just dri ve to Rogers, traffic shouldn't be too bad.

Any advice? Thoughts?

Thanks

Monday 1 PM start time?

Doesn't appear to be a typo, what's the deal with a Monday matinee? Making room for Tigers and Red Sox that evening?

That's 10 AM out of here. I'll be having second breakfast and watching the game. Ha ha
