Weren't we $17 million under the cap?  Who gives a s*** if we gave Richards $3 mill for one year?

In Topic: Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Exactly. People are going to lose their s*** over a guy that played 17 games last season and probably would play even less under Blashill. He's a veteran presence in the locker room that the Red Wings feel they need to take care of, for better or worse. His impact as a hockey player will not have any affect on the team going forward.

He sucks as a hockey player.  The Detroit Red Wings are a hockey team, get the f*** off the team already...

Why all the hate on Jurco?  I get he wasn't the best of the call ups, be he also was the youngest and had the least amount of experience.  Watching him in GR (my limited times in the playoffs) it seemed like the puck just followed up. He has size and skill, he will put it together.

What if he secretly likes 'Golden Girls', and has every season on VHS?

why would he keep that a secret!?

In Topic: Who is the coach next season?

I think this is one of those be careful what you wish for scenarios.  It reminds me of the Tigers situation.  Fans couldn't get Leyland to leave fast enough.  He was old, he sucked, relying on past success.  Bring in the new guy...same result.  But if they only still had Leyland............  As Babs himself said, sometimes the devil you know is better than the one you don't.  


That said, I think he will want some sort of player personnel input if he stays. He's mentioned enough times in the past few seasons about the lack of talent and depth, and he has seemed to go out of his way to put players that Holland has brought in like Tootoo and Weiss in the doghouse with no way out.  

They said on the radio 97.1 Weiss was one of Babcock choices.  So was Cleary
