Joe Kocur says no. He things the Wings are still a formidable team in the NHL.

I talked to the former Red Wing on Thursday in advance of the 4th Annual Joe Kocur Charity Softball Series on Saturday at Duck Lake Pines Park in Highland. It’s an all-day event that benefits five different charities in the area. There are events for kids. There are four different softball games.

For some reason, Kocur thought it would be a good idea to have Wojo and me out to announce the celebrity game. So we’ll be out there as well to call the action as Darren McCarty, Mickey Redmond, Dino Ciccarelli and others take their cuts. I’m sure we’ll really class the event up…only exactly the opposite.

Here’s a chat with Kocur about the game, the state of the Red Wings, Nicklas Lidstrom’s retirement and the reason that all the former Red Wing players still stick around metro Detroit.
