The Malik Report
by George Malik on 07/11/12 at 03:01 AM ET
MLive’s Brendan Savage drops the first bombshell on a day certain to bring a star-studded cast of Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs legends to the fore as the Wings and Leafs will announce their Winter Classic Alumni Game(s) rosters at 12:30 PM EDT (and DetroitRedWings.com will stream the event), all while framing the Hockeytown Winter Festival. Savage reports that the only proper coach for the Wings’ alums will grace Comerica Park with his presence:
Scotty Bowman has committed to coaching the Red Wings alumni team for the Red Wings-Maple Leafs Alumni Showdown Dec. 31 at Comerica Park, MLive.com has learned. It is the last event before the Jan. 1 Winter Classic between Detroit and Toronto at Michigan Stadium.
Bowman, the winningest coach in NHL history was an obvious choice.

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.
