Dan Bylsma, new assistant coach of the Detroit Red Wings:
- DB: “I’ve always had it in the back of my mind that coming back home and working for the Red Wings was something I wanted to do.” (x)
- Head coach Jeff Blashill: “I wanted someone that could help our powerplay and add value to our team. I think he adds a lot of value to our staff.” (x)
- DB about working with JB at Worlds: "That experience, the four or five weeks we had, really made me want to come to Detroit and get on Jeff Blashill’s coaching staff.” (x)
Rich Clune is out here giving the future NHL prospects the best advice in the world
Frk was in the top 25 rookies in goals and points, but we’re not willing to qualify him for $750k and let him compete for a roster spot? I don’t get it, but then again I don’t get what Holland’s been doing for about 10 years.
Mike Green could be returning next season.
We’ve heard this before and I wouldn’t put too much stock in it.
One of my fantasies has been for Kovalchuk and Datsyuk to play together in Detroit for one last shot at a cup (even though they’re on the down-slope of their careers).
However, In the end, I think it’s in this team’s best interest to spend wisely and play as many kids as possible.
True. What I should’ve said is “since Tats has been in and out of the lineup”. @gayjakegyllenhaal
Since Tats can’t crack the lineup, I’m kinda pulling for Ovi, he deserves a cup. Not ready for hockey to be over though so Go Knights Go.
