The Malik Report
by George Malik on 04/21/14 at 09:50 PM ET
Red Wings color commentator Mickey Remdond appeared on Detroit Sports 105.1 FM on Monday afternoon, and he spoke about the Red Wings-Bruins series for the majority of his 21-minute interview...But around the 12-minute mark, he went on quite the tear regarding player safety, respect for one's opponents and the way that the NHL's culture of violence needs to change. He was quite eloquent, frankly:
Redmond says that he feels that the game's become, "Too bloody violent" and that the game is too good to not make players responsible for their actions regardless of their opponents' actions. He feels that the NHLPA needs to rally for player safety lest someone suffer a catastrophic injury...
And as a counter, I would argue that the coaches, GM's and owners need to inform their players that the kind of stuff we're seeing (Seabrook-Backes, Cooke-Barrie, etc.) is unacceptable.
It's got to come from both sides.

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.
