Fox Sports Detroit:
It might not have been the traditional Red Wings' visit to the Detroit Medical Center's Children's Hospital, but spirits were still lifted.
Coach Mike Babcock, general manager Ken Holland and radio play-by-play announcer Ken Kal were the first wave of Wings to visit the Children's Hospital this Thursday. Next Thursday, former players Kris Draper, Chris Chelios, Kirk Maltby and Chris Osgood will see the kids.
"Usually it's the players and Mike Babcock, the coaching staff," Holland said. "Obviously this year with no players, we've put together a different group. I'm sure the people would like to see the players but for me, it's an opportunity to give back."
Babcock doesn't just visit once a year. He's at the hospital so often that he has his own identification card.
"I'm obviously real lucky, I get to see these kids all the time," Babcock said. "They come to games, this year they haven't come to gam...

The Big Leagues The Teletubbies may have made an appearance. Oh, and also the police.
Recently, Todd Bertuzzi said that he believes the entire 2012-13 season will be lost. To put it mildly, that would really suck. In fact, some would argue that it would be the end of the world. Two full seasons lost in less than 10 years? Unforgivable!
I'm still holding out hope that something can be done to save the season, but it's not much hope. Less than a glimmer...
