This isn't Red Wings related but I'm still going to mention it. Roger Neilson, the long time coach, died earlier today after a long battle with cancer. He was either a scout or coach for the last 25 years but never won a Cup. He was most recently an assistant coach for the Ottawa Senators, his 10th team. He was a great guy and I think he won a lifetime achievement award for his dedication to hockey. A very sad day for the Senators and all of hockey. This is Red Wings related: pick #64 of the draft was James Howard, a goalie from Maine. I don't know anything about him yet.
