The Malik Report
by George Malik on 05/17/13 at 08:19 AM ET
I've been in and out of late, so some of the Red Wings-related scuttlebutt (Datsyuk staying, says Mike Babcock? I sure hope so) and prospect news (the Grand Rapids Griffins have a 2-1 lead on the Toronto Marlies heading into tonight's game via a 5-4 win on Wednesday evening, and Martin Frk's Halifax Mooseheads won the QMJHL title and will play in the Memorial Cup), but I would be terribly delinquent if I didn't post the following:
Red Wings director of player development Jiri Fischer spent 15 minutes speaking to WBBL's Huge Show about both the Wings and their prospects' development, discussing some of his points of emphasis for the team's prospects and the front office's plans regarding filling the hole left on its roster by Jim Nill's decision to leave the team to become the Stars' GM. This interview is more than worth your time as Fischer's thoughtful and eloquent delivery is jam-packed with hockey knowledge:
The most interesting part of the interview? The last couple of minutes involve the ways in which the organization is addressing its prospects' engagement in social media...Intriguing stuff.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
