The decision: part deux?

On July 8th the sports world saw the epitome of ego and bravado when LeBron James (aka LeDouche) held an hour long special on ESPN announcing where he will play next year.

Mikey Mo, who was gung ho about joining the Red Wings when it was apparent that nobody else wanted him, is now on the fence about his future.  With as much sarcasm as I can muster through text, the guy seriously has a lot to think about.  He’s over 40 years old, he’s knocking on retirement’s door, his franchise dropped him, and he has maybe 1 or 2 years left in the tank before he’s a liability.  His options seem to grow by the day.  Red Wings, Wild, Sharks, or golf…such touch decisions.

I think it would be very funny if Mikey Mo contacted ESPN to set up “The Decision: Part Deux” with the same cheesy audience, same ESPN sportscaster, and the same elevated platform for the interview.  At least in this instance Mikey Mo has enough accomplishments to fill an hour.

I feel for Abdelkader and Helm for being strung along like this.  I don’t think it’s a very professional thing to do on Holland’s part and he should get these 2 guys signed.  He’s already said that neither will be traded so why not pull the trigger?  Maybe Holland doesn’t want to sign on the dotted line because if Mikey Mo signs then maybe Abdelkader and/or Helm’s future with the Wings isn’t as written in stone as Holland would like us to believe.

    I agree. The wings and Holland need to kep their eye toward the future. We are a good team on the cusp of becoming a great team if we can gain youth experience. I’m not convinced that Modano makes us a cup worthy team.
