A Coaching "Q"uandary
I'm sorry, but a change for the sake of change, or to light a fire under a team is one thing, but to fire Joel Quennville, one of the elite coaches in the league for that same reason...
That's just poor judgement.
In the linked article, Bill Clement writes:
"I expect Quenneville to set a record for the shortest time in the unemployment line. He's an excellent coach, tactically and philosophically. He faced challenges this season, including less-than-stellar goaltending and injuries to key players."
If Clement gets it, why can't the Blues? I know someone needs to be held responsible when a team isn't playing up to its capabilities, but the buck shouldn't stop at Quennville.
There's a new number 20 sweater skating around for the Mighty Detroit Red Wings...and no, Luc Robitaille isn't bringing his garbage goal ass back to Motown.
Instead, The Wings are bringing in the man tied for the Ross Trophy race, Robert Lang.
Yes, Detroit was the latest team to cash in on the Washington Capitals firesale, after Ottawa acquired Peter Bondra a few weeks back.
Can this team get any better? With Hatcher due back soon, along with everyone else getting healthy, the Wings are looking pretty tough once again.
Plus, they picked up Lang and only gave up LW Tomas Fleishmann, a first round pick in 2004, and a 3rd round pick in 2006.
Even if Lang leaves after this year, it's a nice deal for the boys in red.

End of An Era
The Rasheed Wallace era in Atlanta has come to a close...and what a ride it was.
I guess I can cancel that order for my Hawks' Wallace #36.
By the way, I venture to think that Larry Brown is the only guy in Detroit that's a fan of Rasheed, but if it can bring the title back to Motown, I guess that's what matters most.
If nothing else, Team Wallace should be interesting to watch.
