10:15 AM ET 10.26 | Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock vowed it wasn't going to happen. But, just 11 games into the season, Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg are being split up. "I told them I wasn't going to split 'em up; I told you guys I wasn't going to split 'em up," Babcock told the Detroit Free Press. "Here we are 11 games in, I'm splitting them up." The play of Datsyuk and Zetterberg have nothing to do with the divorce, though.

Note to Babs, you haven't won since sending Glendening back to G.R. FYI

Stephen has not been a Weiss investment. He's been a huge disappointment so far.

And the Wings lose to the Rangers. OT but still a loss.

Didn't hardly see any of the game, but enough to hear the announcer say "Two games ago the Wings had a great record...now it's not that great of a record." Very apt, and that was before they lost the game.
