Afternoon Line

Interrupting my mini-vacation with this...

Without repeating Alfredsson's chronology of how it all went down, the bottom line is he would have been handsomely rewarded had he stayed put. As well paid as he will be with the Red Wings? Maybe, or maybe a few hundred thousand shy of that. So a guy who has earned between $60-70 million from the Senators is going to a dump like Detoilet -- and if you have ever visited Motown's downtown, you can't object to that classification -- over a measly mil?

As a Wings fan, and as a bit of an outsider who enjoys visiting Detroit, I’m going to look forward to having this man and his team underfoot well into the indefinite future.

Ahhh, so this is why Toronto people think Ottawa should only be cured via flame.

Live in Ottawa, been to Detroit many times. Great people, but the city itself it absolutely a dump. At least to visit. Perhaps living there, one just gets used to that place.

Agree.

The relevance of what he said is nil.  The importance of it providing some peripheral kindling to have some actual dislike for one of our new division mates is far greater.  I feel like these guys will be IWO’s next target for the shtick he used to lay on the Blues.

Brother? No. Not yet. Not ever, most likely.

More like a second cousin from some backwater place like the bayous of Louisiana.

My question for Mr. Brennan is this:

Q: What do Ottawa, ON, Harrisburg, PA and my own dear Columbus, OH have in common?

A: If they weren’t the seat of a government subdivision no one would give a fuch. 

You can say whatever you like about Detroit, but at least Detroit stands on its own two feet in most respects.  Not sure you can say that about Ottawa.  It sort of bothers me that someone from a city that (as far as I can tell) is economically and culturally informed by Toronto, Montreal, and possibly Vancouver would have the arrogance to look down his nose at Detroit.

wow,

Even if MTL…..and trust me, it can get pretty nasty in the newspaper talking about hockey, but NOT this way. At least, we get informed and we have well written articles…..and what about the occasional “oups”? Well, you will see excuses the next day. This should not be tolerated.
