The Malik Report

The Island News's Scott Harrigan's interview with Red Wings VP Jimmy Devellano's been tossed around like a hot potato, with each and every person who's re-listed it treating Devellano's inflammatory comments regarding players as "cattle" who are generously allowed to graze at the owners' "ranches," his allusions to collusion on NHL owners' parts regarding offer sheets and his, "There there, little fan, it's all too complicated for you to understand, but we'll 'get it fixed,' and then you can bring your money back to us" attitude, so I suppose it should come as little surprise that player agent Allan Walsh--who may be Devellano's polar rhetorical opposite--offered a post-script from Devellano via Harrigan:
Given that both sides are accusing the other of never really negotiating off their first proposals, and that contempt for the other side's position is boiling over, why do I get the feeling that the potential cancelations of the Hockeytown Winter Festival (per the Detroit News's Ted Klufan) and/or the Winter Classic itself (per the Toronto Star's Kevin McGran) are the least of our concerns?

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.
