Scotty Bowman used to be a consultant to the Red Wings. Now, Scotty Bowman is a consultant to the Blackhawks.

He’ll probably move on to Buffalo as his next consultation gig.

“We used to be where they are and now they’re where we were.”

Huh? I think he meant (or more likely was mis-quoted) “and now we’re where they were.

Letting the Bowmans go to Chicago was the Biggest Mistake the Ilitches have made since they bought the franchise. Well, that and not hiring Barry Smith as Bowman’s replacement as Bowman wanted.

I think it’s right, we’re nowhere as down as the Hawks were.

Makes sense…... Scotty Bowman took his experience from Wings with him to Chicago.

But Babcock is still there, in the Wings Camp - Come on Babcock!

And the players are trying, timing is off, plays and/or players are just not meshing, plus all the injuries….

I still believe in the Wings, and so do a whole lot of other fans!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

In 07-08, the last time the Wings won the Cup, the Hawks finished in a 3 way tie for 9th in the conference, 3 points behind 8th place. As of this morning, the Wings lie in 11th place in the conference 2 points and 3 teams out of the playoffs. I’d say we are right down where the Hawks were.

Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately, depending on your perspective), the season still has a good 30-odd games left in it.

Anything could happen.

That’s why they play ‘em.

Me…..I am always going to be optimistic, when it comes to the Wings.
