Janmark signs 1-year deal with Dallas.

Unfortunately he missed the entire season due to knee surgery.

Florida Panthers have received permission from San Jose Sharks to speak with Bob Boughner regarding their coaching vacancy.

Boughner was drafted by the Wings in 1989 and spent 3 seasons in the minor league affiliate. Eventually was released and played 630 games in the NHL, none with Detroit.

http://www.tsn.ca/panthers-get-permi...ghner-1.741044

Sidenote, Boughner previously coached the Windsor Spitfires in the OHL.

Claude Julien, Pete De Boer, Paul Maurice, and Joel Quenneville all played for the Spitfires. Maurice was also an assistant coach with the Spits following a career ending injury.
Amazing that 4/30 (potentially 5/31 next season) of the NHL coaches all coming from the same OHL team.


Additional sidenote, Gerard Gallant who started the season as coach of the Florida Panthers was unceremoniously fired. At the time of his firing the Panthers were in a playoff spot and under Tim Rowe, the man who fired and replaced him, missed the playoffs. Gallant was named the Coach of the Vegas Knights.

Gallant played 563 of his 615 NHL games in a Red Wing uniform recording 467 points.

Mattias Ritola

At one point Ritola was considered one of the top prospects for Detroit. To be fair, the prospects in Grand Rapids during 08-09 in particular was quite poor indeed. He played 7 games for the Red Wings recording a single assist over two seasons. He was eventually claimed off waivers by Yzerman's Tampa Bay Lightning.

Ritola played another 36 games in the NHL all for the Lightning recording 4 goals and 4 assists. In 2011-12 when demoted to the AHL he refused to report and had his contract mutually terminated for his return to Sweden.

He put up decent numbers in Sweden until 2014-15 when he kicked up it to 32 points in 33 games. Again, to be fair, by that point he was playing in the 2nd tier Swedish league due to his team being relegated half way through his Swedish run. This past season he made the change to the Swiss league where he played for Fribourg-Gotteron. He played 27 games recording 17 points before terminating his contract and returning to Sweden where he played another 16 games recording 7 points (in 2nd tier Swedish league).

The Slovenia vs Switzerland game in the IIHF tournament features two former Red Wings.

Jan Mursak the Captain of team Slovenia scored the first Slovenian goal on a nice tip.

Damian Brunner had an assist and the shootout game winner.

That Mursak goal was top of day 2.

He scored another tip against Canada today.

Fantastic piece about Joey Kocur. Kocur played 535 regular season games for the Red Wings recording 66 goals and 66 assists through 10 seasons (and countless fights).

Won 2 cups with Detroit and 1 with the Rangers.

In 2008 Ville Leino signed with Detroit following an amazing season in Finland recording 77 points in 55 games the 7th most in Finnish league history.

Ville Leino played parts of two seasons with Detroit recording 9 goals, 7 assists in 55 games. During his struggling second season with Detroit he was sent to Philadelphia at the deadline for a defenseman (contract spot) and a 5th round pick (Mattias Backman who was traded to Dallas as part of the dreaded Cole trade).

Those playoffs he recorded 21 points in 19 games. The following season he recorded 53 points in 81 game. He than signed 6 years $27 million deal with Buffalo where he underperformed and was bought out after 3 seasons.

He started the Bille Beino clothing brand following his buyout from Buffalo.

Stan Bowman believes Jurco will be better next season. Considering there isn;t much buzz around Jurco being offered a new deal I am skeptical.
