You think they don't care? Any team in the league with the injuries this team has had this year would be a lottery team. Ya crappy way to lose, but I thought they battled hard and it's just such a shame that people haven't got to see this team actually healthy. Because I think it could be a damn good team
Only if he is free. I still think Sammy has something left in the tank and can help certain teams, whoever there are no teams who will be willing to take on his contract.
The Wings have already paid the majority of his contract for the year. He's a UFA at the end of the season. If someone actually wanted him and thought he could help, I don't think the money would be a deal breaker.
The stuff that he said about his time in Columbus made it seem like he likes to blame others and make excuses for why he isn't playing. After reading that I had a harder time believing his side of the story of his time in Detroit. I also don't remember him standing out when he played.
But who knows.
Agreed. Commodore is a whiner. He's also got a terrible memory. Let's go down the list.
The Wings started with six wins and six losses, not five and seven... Ian White was injured on the 13th of November, 2011, and Commodore was played only one game in the immediate future---not two, not three---and he played seven minutes, not three.... Commodore played three days before Christmas... Brendan Smith was Babcock's single minor-league call-up on defense in that season, and he played with the team for only four nights (three games) in 2011 (he was then sent down until March)... and so on.
If Commodore's going to spill his guts like this, he really ought to ensure first that he's got his facts right.
You would think the speed and skill of the third line in the playoffs last season would have made some lasting impact on Holland/Babcock. Instead they insist on icing an old and slow team, with veterans that all provide the same attribute of nothing. There's simply no excuse for Tatar and Nyquist not to play over the likes of Samuelsson, Cleary and Bertuzzi. These veterans aren't making the Red Wings better and this continues to be the most glaring flaw of the organization.
