Punching out

To you from failing hands we throw the torch ...

Yah, that's a bit much unless you happen to be wearing a Montreal Canadiens sweater. Just a note to let anyone who stops in here know that I'm moving on to another assignment. I'm the online editor for The Macomb Daily as of now, which means a day shift ... and that means more family time ... and that means I'm happy.

Chuck Pleiness, who has been on the Red Wings beat with me since I started, is taking over this blog and that's a trade for the betterment of RedWingsCorner.

And thank you to everyone who participated in this blog and over on Twitter. I had the time of my life with this, thanks to you.

Sorry to lose you Bruce, but congratulations. You've been the best Red Wings beat writer we've ever had in this town.

What the hell does Pleiness know about Goals-Against-On-The-Penalty-Kill-Per-Sixty-Minutes-Of-Ice-Time.

Not very many writers invent their own stats.

If you bring the same passion to online editing, then the Macomb Daily is in for good things.

Thanks a lot Bruce and congratulations. You're one of, if not the only, beat writers worth reading in town.

Thanks for your service here, Bruce. You truly were a great Wings reporter, and us at RWC and elsewhere in Red Wings nation appreciated it. Good luck in the new job, and because of you I will continue to read what ever new comes up here on the Red Wings Corner.

Congrats Bruce,

run with it and may good things keep coming your way.

And, of course, may some of those good things come in the form of more Stanley Cups for the Red Wings!

It seems to me you left this blog a while ago, haven't even been writing lately. Well, good luck to you and I'm looking forward to reading a dedicated blogger who takes the time to keep us posted on the ins and outs of the team.

Congrats on the promotion, Bruce. While this is a step up for you, all Red Wings fans are sad to see you go.

Good luck to the FNG, he has mighty big shoes to fill.

I think your best blog post was the one that read "2008 Stanley Cup Champions"

It's been fun.
