Quick Hits: The Chirps-Only Edition
In Red Wings Land
Claude Lemieux went on the Red Wings bus to challenge Scotty Bowman who was chirping Lemieux as he walked by. Then came face to face with Bowman the next morning. Can’t make this stuff up. @camandstrickpod #Avs #LGRW pic.twitter.com/8ePaMlczao— Andy Strickland (@andystrickland) July 10, 2020
Up yours, Claude.
Around the NHL
Interesting #FlaPanthers note here. Seems that Gerrard Gallant's exit from Vegas was for similar reasons as his exit from the Panthers. He wanted complete autonomy over on ice decisions with no input from front office/analytics dept. Interesting... https://t.co/XO276oofk3— CF3234 (@CF3234) July 10, 2020
This is a fun wrinkle to the idea of bringing Gallant to Detroit, which is always a big talking point among Wings fans (and not just because he’s just any NHL coach and therefore not Jeff Blashill). IF this is true, do you think this is how he’d act under his former teammate Yzerman? Would that be a non-starter for you?
