Wow! How’s it possible not to mention Pavel Datsyuk, homophobia, LGBT and Putin’s anti-gay law?!

Seems like a remission, eh, Malik?

Kate,
I will say I think George puts far too much of himself into his posts. Over the past year or so he has gotten to putting far too much personal thoughts and non hockey stuff in his posts. And far too much fringe non-redwings stuff as well. I think it would be very good for him to step back and refocus on hockey coverage as opposed to covering 47 tweets about Alfredson’s house and what the Ottawa media think about it and his personal itinerary.

I think he’s a good writer who is very dedicated and could get a look for a job for a major publication, but his professionalism has gone down the shitter over the last year.

@ teldar. I was taking aim at Hawk with my comment, in defense of George. Maybe you missed that.

You’re right.

If he really wants to be a successful pro he needs to start making up and publishing stories and conversations that never happened, go onto ESPN shows and scream at other reporters for a half hour, and get about writing crappy books he can use Oprah to help peddle.

Primis, that’s not George’s readership.  Most KK people seem pretty die-hard.  We don’t like those main-stream guys and their shennanigans.  But George could do that and be a standard instead of co-opted, but his publications have let quite a bit of personal opinion out there and at time, it even seems forced on me as a reader.  It’s his blog, his conversation, I don’t have to come here and still do.. but I’ve enjoyed it a little less this past year.  Really since Rafalski retired and reference to him being a christian thus being “weird”.  I found KK because of Malik when he was at Mlive and followed him over here.  I loved his earlier stuff.

What’ Babs say?  You gotta stay fresh?

Wow, what a bunch of ungrateful slobs. Get your own damn blog if you don’t like it here.

Thanks for all the hard work, George. Don’t change a thing. Have a good break.

Get a good rest there, George.  Whatcha got is whatcha got and I’m always thankful for it.

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.
