Was listening to NHL radio this morning and they had Pierre on. He was saying that Chirelli was in Detroit scouting our D last Wednesday. Take it for what it's worth, but still interesting to hear

I agree, but people on this forum and media around Detroit is taking it as "an insider said it so it has to have an element of truth", when in reality he was just typing out a satirical piece.

People really missed the satirical nature of THN's BOLD prediction article. Campbell ends his paragraph about the Drouin+Stamkos to Detroit trade saying something to the effect that it would allow the Wings to put Pavel back on a checking line role where he belongs. Go buy a lotto ticket and plan your purchases before believing what that article said.

In Topic: Adam Oates being brought in to help PP

Oates is working as a "skills" coach, with individual players such as Stamkos, Parise and Purcell to name a few.  After leaving NJ, he opened his own business and has individual clients where he watches their  game shifts and advises them on individual aspects of their game. In the off season he meets with them and works on the ice with many of his clients. He was hired by the wings for a three day period to, like Blash said, Pick his brain. I believe this is the first time he has worked with any one team in any capacity since leaving NJ. Should be a good opportunity for Blash and the coaching staff to learn some things.



In Topic: What are the rules in signing undrafted players?

Here is an article I remember reading last month talking about Lazarev,Svechnikov, and Pierre Luc Dubois. 




"Lazarev, who is undrafted but did attend Chicago’s camp this year, was a force picking up a hat trick and adding a helper, Dubois tallied four points (a goal and three assists) while Svechnikov added a goal and a helper."
