  1. 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

  2. Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

    Let him play in Grand Rapids. Fill in as needed
  3. What changes do you think we'll see with Blashill?

    No problem with Jurco in the lineup. He's got a long way to go but obviously still want to hold onto him. We have too many small wingers we're going to need his size
  4. 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

    If we were able to finish off the Hawks in 2013 this 'dynasty' of theirs would be dramatically different
  5. All Purpose Grand Rapids Griffins Thread

    I would be okay with this if we traded some of our depth forwards away for something of value
  6. Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

    If he can prove to be an effective PKer and responsible defensively while chipping in offensively I can see him getting a shot with the wings later in the year
  7. Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

    I want to see Sheahan center our 2nd line through most of the season and Pulkinnen and Jurco scoring. Also would love to see Franzen come back and play. Trade Weiss for anything or even Helm if we can get a return. Would like a shake up on defense one way or another
  8. should mrazek get #1 tag next season

    There is absolutely zero chance Howard gets moved. You can bank on the two splitting duties for at least a year. Pretty good situation, we'll have a deadly tandem where both goalies are more than capable of running with it. Lots of competition every night can't wait
  9. Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

    I think there is a very small minority here that is actually happy Babs signed with Toronto. Just some people making the best of it and of course, getting bit overly optimistic but that's the way it is. Babcock is gone time to move on. We'll be so sick of hearing from the media how terrible we are without Babs all season it will eventually make us resent him
  10. Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

    Dont get me wrong though, i think Babs is an incredible coach and i would have been thrilled with him resigning here but it is what it is. I for one am happy and excited about having a new voice and direction even if it may be similar. This team has needed something to reinvigorate them for a while now, i think everybody can agree with that
  11. Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

    I dont see what's wrong with being excited about having a new coach. I think the youngsters will show some more creativity offensively, something that has been severely lacking on this team. Of course their is going to be some growing pains going with a coach with zero NHL experience, but if Babcock is still the best coach in the NHL after only winning two playoff series since 09 then Blashill can't be considered a failure if he doesn't get us to the second round So is Number9 trolling or what? Seems like since Babs left you've changed to SimonSin levels of doom and gloom
  12. Bryzgalov interview

    class act... lost a lot of respect for this guy this past year
  13. Epic Boooing of Bettman

    I hated the way he was running his greasy fingers on the cup too
  14. No lineup changes for Game 4

    Babcock is probably thinking "We've only lost by one goal in each game so we don't have to change anything, just get some more bounces our way." When the fact is, the Wings are getting completely outplayed every game. It's like he is satisfied by only losing by one goal. He was defeated before the series even started. I can't find any logic in his moves this series. In game 2 when the Wings were getting dominated he obviously needed to mix up the lines and get some kind of sense of urgency but he sat back and did nothing. Anybody could coach this team the way he has. Just keep throwing the same lines and maybe every 5 minutes we'll get a shot on goal.
  15. No lineup changes for Game 4

    what the hell is babcock doing. Modano would bring a lot more to the team than Miller Eaves Abdelkader Cleary. Give the guy a chance, such a retarded move, I don't understand this at all. At least make some kind of move. Babcock was completely out coached this series and everyone knew it and he made no adjustments. The Wings needed some kind of spark and Babcock handled it horrendously. I think Babcock is a huge reason were down 3-0. This team has too much talent to float around with no interest in a playoff series, the coach is supposed to adjust when nothing is going your teams way.
