The Malik Report

When I saw an alert from RedWingsFeed stating that the Grand Rapids Griffins had supplemented their 11-minute video of the team celebrating its Calder Cup Championship on the ice in Syracuse, NY, I assumed that the Griffins had posted a short clip.
I underestimated the Griffins' video crew again, because they've closed out their 2012-2013 season's worth of between the benches insights, behind-the-scenes chronicling of road trips (the clip linked to is a 17-minute compliation of three days' worth of video), every-game highlights and interviews, a wonderful pair of behind-the-scenes videos from the Wings-Griffins mixed scrimmage (held on the day Henrik Zetterberg was named the Wings' captain) from the players and referees' perspectives, at-lunch interiews, off-the-wall features (Griffins hits as Mortal Kombat scraps!) and of course the remarkable videos of Tomas Jurco lit up on a dark rink like a hockey-playing TRON character and using a Darth Maul-style "Frankenstick" with...
The entire rally. Like all 58 minutes' worth of players stepping up to the podium to thank their fans and occasionally drop an expletive in a mushy-gushy celebration of the bond between the team and their supporters.
Way to go out with a bang, Griffvision, and thank you for one hell of a season's worth of wonderful, wonderful content.

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.
