Yes. His role currently is special assistant to the general manager, which seems to be leading in that direction as long as he proves he knows what he is doing. He is being groomed by the greatest organization in hockey. If he doesn't end up being a GM here, he will likely be a GM somewhere.
"Yo what up what up this ya boy P Kane in the hizzle, just want to give a shoutout to all the dime pieces out there, hit me up after the game and I might let you smell my cup YA KNOW WHAT I'M SAYIN but on the real one love PEACE"
We all know very well Patty never goes after dime pieces...strictly nickles.
I don't understand why people hate the shoutout. I love it. And it's not during the playoffs like World Cup is for example.
It's only regular season games and it's cool and exciting to see. Even if the wings suck lol.
It's winning based on a skill competition basically. You don't see games being determined by home run derbys, dunk contests or some sort of qb competition. Shootouts used to be exciting to me, but now since they are so often it kind of lost its luster.
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'm officially completely embarrassed of being a fan of this team. How can someone keep their job constantly signing such garbage players. Mr. I or one of his family members needs to pay attention to what the hell is going on here.
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.
