    Fans bash Chris Ilitch for comments made at Derek Lalonde presser

    On Friday, the Detroit Red Wings officially introduced Derek Lalonde as their next head coach but that did not stop reporters from asking owner Chris Ilitch about the 2022 Detroit Tigers.

    A day earlier, Ilitch had the following to say about the hiring of Lalonde:

    “On behalf of the entire organization, I'd like to welcome Derek, his wife, Melissa, and their three children – Alex, Luke, and Abby – into our Red Wings family,” said Christopher Ilitch, Detroit Red Wings Governor, President and CEO. “Derek has an impressive resume, particularly the work he's done with young players and prospects throughout his career. We're excited to have him leading the charge behind the Red Wings bench. I'd also like to commend Steve and his staff for conducting a very thorough and detailed search process. We have the greatest fans in hockey, and they deserve a team that consistently competes for Stanley Cup championships. We'll continue to work diligently towards that goal under the leadership of Steve and Derek.”

    When asked about the Tigers during Friday's presser, Ilitch gave an answer that made many people do a double-take.

    “I'm very pleased with the progress,” Ilitch said. “Despite a very slow start this season, there's actually some good progress happening with some of the young guys that have come up and developed and so on and so forth.”
