In Topic: Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Meh. Would prefer a team on the east or at least central so I can watch the games. 


Being in Boston, might start following the Bruins closer. Though I hate a ton of players on the team, I think Chiarell is the best GM in the NHL. 


Just so you know, I shared your quote on Deadspin - who agrees with everyone's sentiments. Hope that's okay.

He's a bit iffy at times, but a decent AHL backup. Doubt he'll ever be anything more than that though.

The equivalent of a AAAA player in baseball.

I called and canceled my half-season ticket plan yesterday over voice mail as well as gave my great displeasure, directly but professionally, over the mismanagement and lack of professionalism of this organization.
I actually received a follow up this morning from the head of ticket services telling me, "If you don't believe in the vision or management style of the best GM in sports, perhaps you might think about following another team". 
I can see they really value the fans. 

Wow. Seriously?

I can't believe the Red Wings ticket office thinks Billy Beane is the team's GM.

(But seriously that's totally absurd if true.)

In Topic: Tom Renney could be leaving, too.

I sure as hell hope not. People want Blashill to take his place so bad. I'd love for him to eventually become Bab's assistant for a couple years again first, before eventually becoming the #1 bench boss. 

I can understand that, but Blashill has had success at every level he's coached. And with young players, at that. If this organization is seriously focused on youth, it might not be bad to bring the coach along with the youth movement.

As someone without a real understanding of Corsi, this is a bit over my head, but there's an interesting analysis about Green here: http://www.mc79hocke...positions-best/
