Quick Hits: The Misremembering Edition

In Red Wings Land

I don’t really feel like talking about the NHL trade deadline again or reliving the Red Wings 8-1 loss to the Canadiens, so let’s just check out this video and these pictures of Luke Witkowski visiting kids in elementary school.

Also, don’t miss Peter’s latest power play update!

Wait... what?

I think Mike Babcock misremembers just exactly how things went down. The Wings reportedly offered him a four year deal worth $3.25 million per season. Babcock decided to leave for the Maple Leafs and take their eight year contract worth $6.25 million each season.  I don’t blame him for taking the money. That’s a lot to turn down.

Totally spitballing here... maybe he went to the Wings and told them he’d stay if they matched? We don’t know, but that could be a reason why he thinks he was sent away? Maybe the players wanted him gone?
