Re-signing Drew Miller Dampens Hope For Philosophical Change

Ken Holland implied much needed change was coming to the Red Wings, but one of his first signings of the summer contradicts that motive. Ken Holland opened this Red Wings off-season by insinuating there would be change. Henrik Zetterberg soon echoed those statements. If your general manager and captain speak of change, you assume it's coming, but when one of the first signings of the off-season is extending Drew Miller, you take pause.

Pavel Datsyuk and Separating the Player From the Individual

Pavel Datsyuk the player is an unmitigated masterpiece, but I can't help but think back to what he said nearly three years ago I'm 22 years old and for most of my time being a Red Wing hockey fan, I watched Pavel Datsyuk make magic. He made Marty Turco look helpless. He created a void in the space-time continuum against Nashville. He made Logan Couture look like he pooped his pants--on his birthday no less.
