Hey since Kenny is in the spirit of throwing large sums of money away, maybe I can get him to pay off my student loans for me. After this I'm convinced Kenny is locked in the basement of JLA and Matt Millen is running the team. Thank god the Packers are awesome otherwise this would be a looooong winter for me!
You people are all way too serous about this. Take a step back from your keyboard and breath.
The positive of this is it a 1 year deal we have a ton of cap space and looks like no way of using it.
If he performs like he has prior to the last couple of years you will all be in love with this move come season end.
He is a veteran player who can be trusted by the coach and knows the system, you are all very well aware of how fragile this team is so veteran leadership and depth at this price is a no brainer even if he does not play a game.
As for the GM I would like to see how some of the posters on this site would be able to pull off the NHL 2014 trades that some of you so desperately want. I can't imagine that it's that easy or you'd be a GM in this league by now.
Life long wings fan here who is a realistic person.
I leave to go to the gym for an hour and a half and I come back to this s***?! What the hell is Kenny's problem? This guy is absolute trash and you give him a raise? I'd rather they just play the kids than sign this waste of space. Kenny needs to be fired. NOT PROMOTED. Promotions are for people who actually earn it by doing well in their previous position. I can't stand this anymore. I know I'm spoiled because I am only 25 and missed the dead wings years, but I've never been more embarrassed to say I'm a Wings fan. I wish I could be as horrible at my job as Kenny and Kyle here and not get fired, or better yet get a raise..must be nice.!
At what point does Babs call Kenny reminding him what he said at the end of the season? If this is how it's gonna be I don't blame Babcock, or anyone else (including core players) for wanting to leave.
I wonder if it's possible they each are told the other has interest in playing with the Wings would make them want to come here. You know, more talent give them a better chance at winning the cup. Doubtful, but just a thought. Really hoping for Niskanen first and foremost though.
I feel like next year is gonna be the Babcock sweepstakes, and half the teams in the league are going to be slinging offers. Babs will sign with a team and there will be a scramble for all the other coaches. It might actually be a really interesting offseason next year.
I'd like to see that happen, and then he actually ends up at Michigan. YOU CAN'T HAVE OUR BABCOCK!!
