One year to prove himself type contract, I like it. 

In Topic: Hockey News: Detroit has the easiest schedule

This. Teams are so unpredictable that this claim about the "easiest schedule" is worthless.



exactly. this article is just a product of the slow part of the year (hockey news wise).


& leftwinger has a good point as well. the wings seem to play to the other team's level. I'd love for them to change that trend....

In Topic: Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

Obvious speculation about "damage control" aside, Mike Barwis isn't the Red Wings trainer.  He's an outside specialist and (based on my very brief internet search) seems to be pretty well respected and established. 

Sounds like he should be our big free agency splash. Get err done Kenny!

In Topic: Red Wings new assistant coaches

"Tony Granato has accepted a coaching job with the Detroit Red Wings. Wings still looking for a second assistant. #TSN"

Per Dregers twitter




out of curiosity, does anyone know what he did as assistant in pitt (powerplay, defense, etc)?? 

In Topic: Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

I haven't heard solid confirmation, though someone mentioned earlier that you could only do a bonus structure on a one-way deal.  Not sure if that's true or not either.  


The fact that they haven't come out and said it's a two-way deal kinda makes me think it's a one way.  Holland has to know what the reaction would be if he released all at once that he re-signed Cleary to a one-way deal for potentially $2.5 million.


"potentially" - read: probably.. oh. and don't forget the NTC.... not that it matters. just hope they don't come out and say it's actually a NMC *knocks on allll the wood*
