Stan & Scotty

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,

By the time he retired as Red Wings coach in 2002, he had brought the organization three Stanley Cups. His success earned him a lifetime contract with the Red Wings, where everyone thought he’d wind down his career as a consultant to Detroit G.M. Ken Holland, an arrangement that allowed him to scout games from his home in Tampa. It was a sweet deal.

But Devellano got a phone call last summer that he says shocked him.

“Jimmy,” Bowman told him, “I love the Red Wings. I love Detroit. However, I’ve had a request from my son wanting me to join him in Chicago.”

Scotty’s lifetime deal with the Red Wings ended—at age 74.

Stan’s wife, Sue, remembers her husband struggling with how to express his desire to work together in Chicago with his dad. He didn’t want to pressure his father, but at the same time he wanted him to know how much it would mean to him.

“You kind of have to tell him something,” Sue says. “Don’t beg him or anything. Tell him what you’re thinking.”

GDT - W.C. Finals, Game 5: Red Wings (3-1) host Blackhawks (1-3) (7:30)

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Jeff OKWingnut

It is by necessity that the GDT is quick and dirty today, I have to work out of town.  Hopefully the Wings will make quick and dirty work of the ‘Hawks tonight as well.  If my memory serves me right, the Wings haven’t done too well the last two opportunities they have had the chance to close out a series in 5 games.

Uncle Mike isn’t even thinking about “resting” Lidstrom or Datsyuk:  ” “If they’re ready, they’re playing,”  Datsyuk did skate yesterday, says Khan(!) Q-stache says ‘Bulin and Havlat are day to day.

This could be the last time for the ‘Hawks tonight.  Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

The Ongoing Phoenix Coyotes Situation

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,

Sports Properties Investment Corp. – a New York investment firm that’s flush with cash – was working with Chicago sports magnate Jerry Reinsdorf to buy the Phoenix Coyotes one day before the team filed for bankruptcy protection.

According to documents obtained by the Arizona Republic, Tony Tavares, a former baseball executive who runs Sports Properties Acquisition Corp., signed an agreement May 4 with the city of Glendale, where the Coyotes play their home games at Jobing.com Arena.

The document did not reveal a purchase price, but the Republic says Sports Properties has $215 million (all figures U.S.) in a trust account to buy “sports and leisure properties.” The publicly traded firm refers to itself as a “blank check” business that last month was trying to acquire the NHL’s Florida Panthers, according to published reports.
