As per @GMillerTSN, one year, $1M for Mike Commodore in Detroit.
Interesting to note, Commodore had these words to say back when he was playing for Columbus, about Babcock:
Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock played a role in making Commodore a better defenseman. But as appreciation rates go, Commodore’s is about on par with Enron stock.
“Mike Babcock was without a doubt an obstacle in my career,” said Commodore of the coach who traded him from Anaheim to Calgary in 2003.
“I wanted to prove him wrong, I’m not going to lie. I used him as big-time motivation. I thought he put his best foot forward to bury me.”
Hope they get that smoothed over…
