Edzo shouldn't be allowed to do any of these games.

This. The verbal fellatio he gives Chicago is sickening. How is he allowed to do any national broadcasts?

We're out-hitting these chumps 24-9. That's what I like to see.

The team or the goal ?

The whole play. How the hell do you let Dupuis walk out so uncontested like that? That one's on Howie though.

My brother recently overcame his fight with AML. From first hand experience, Mr. Burr is in for a helluva battle but since he's a former Wing I have no doubt he'll overcome this thing.

Solid win by the boys last night... Great way to cap off two days I'm sure my family will never forget.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words and the warm reception to this site. My brother told me he read some of your comments and was really moved by it. Positivity is key in a situation like this and it is awesome to see so many Wings fans unite.

Awesome for your brother and I hope he makes a full and speedy recovery.

Any pics? And how did the Wings find out? Babcock being from Saskatoon Saskatchewan as he likes to remind us?

To be honest I'm not exactly sure on the details of how Babcock found out. He hasn't sent me any of the pictures he took but I snagged this one off his Facebook profile page:

I've been casually viewing this site for awhile but until today I never felt the need to share my opinion. Today, however, was different. My brother was diagnosed with leukemia while playing junior hockey in Saskatchewan earlier this year and he had a bone marrow transplant a couple months ago in Calgary (he's had to live there for the last several months due to the lack of facilities in Sask.). We have been die-hard Red Wings fans since we were really young and it's been a dream of ours to someday watch a game at the Joe but today he experienced the next best thing. Mike Babcock gave him a call this morning and invited him to the Wings practice in Calgary and invited him to meet all of the Wings. Every single Red Wing took the time to not only introduce themselves but genuinely get to know him. He was encouraged by Dats and Zets to stick around for practice prep and to come back after practice for some autographs. Ken Holland offered him tickets for tomorrow's game and Babs invited him back tomorrow to once again hang out with the Wings after their morning skate. For a kid who's been through a lot in recent months, he was on cloud nine today. The Wings have always been my favorite team but today they turned it up a notch. I was absolutely blown away by everything today and I think it's safe to say we all cheer for one of the classiest organizations in the NHL .
