The Malik Report

Facing a significant amount of public furor after having fired Red Wings analyst Larry Murphy, MLive's Ansar Khan reports that Fox Sports Detroit's released a statement that does little to nothing to explain why Murphy was so suddenly and summarily dismissed:
“We wanted our primary team of Mickey Redmond and Ken Daniels to call the remaining games as the Red Wings make a push for the playoffs. We thought it was only fair to let Larry know as soon as possible that he would not be scheduled for any more assignments. We thank Larry for his contributions to our telecasts over the years and we wish him well.”
Of course, this does not explain why Murphy wasn't retained to work between the benches at home games or in the studio.
FSD said this is the only statement it will make on the matter.

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.
