    News From Around the NHL *Mod warning page 75*

    I was just about to post this. I'd be open to it. Guy has a fantastic resume. He's won a Stanley Cup in Carolina, and he has been to the finals with Nashville and Philly. Going to the finals with 3 different teams is impressive. A lot of people keep saying that we shouldn't fire Blashill until there is a viable permanent replacement, is this it? We may not get a better option in the off-season.

    What is up with the forums

    I love that people actually post there, but I hate the divide and partisan nature of the place. It truly reminds me of politics over there, you have your "right" and you have your "left" and they agree on nothing, all "to proud" to budge.

    LGW Upkeep

    Do we even know what the issue is? Can't fix anything when we have no clue what the problem is. Agreed about the Tatar pic, its time to bring back a pic of Stevie Y.

    Would you bring back Babcock?

    This was posed on the HOF boards during our hiatus. My questions is simple, if the Wings fire Blashill would you be open to bringing Babcock back?

    Babs got fired

    If this was happening all around the league I would agree, but its really just 2 players talking about 1 coach.

    Babs got fired

    Mark Fraser came out and joined Commodore and ripped Babs a new one yesterday. Now Fraser didnt really play under Babs from my understanding, but he claims that 95% of players that have played for him hate him. Check out his twitter for exact words.

    What is up with the forums

    A lot of us communicate here when this site goes down https://hfboards.mandatory.com/threads/letsgowings-com-down.2679947/page-8 Its not the same over there though. a lot of ego/enhanced sense of self on that board. Quite a few posters over there forget they are fans and have reached such delusion that they truly believe they "experts" to the highest degree.

    Babs got fired

    Agreed, ultimately the message being sent here was we are firing the coach for being too hard on you. Not the message to send to a team that can't beat Boston in a playoff team because they are not tough enough.

    Babs got fired

    I think Keefe is the guy they are going with.

    Babs got fired

    Long time no see everyone, glad to be back! I think this move will bite TO in the ass. Dubas did a bad job constructing this roster, and I see this is as him giving himself a second chance. Maybe Sheldon Keefe meshes better with these particular players, but I worry that TO is about to go down the road of the Oilers a few years ago, a team with great talent on paper, that just can't win. Not to mention, they are likely loosing their entire blueline in the summer. They couldnt have handled the Nylander/Mathews/Marner situation any worse. They should have traded Nylander for a young D-man, the a lesser deal with Marner first, then a larger deal with AM. But hindsight is 20/20.

    TRADE ALERT! Wings Acquire Robby Fabbri

    It was nice seeing the chemistry between Fabbri and Bertuzzi was still there. This team desperately needs some secondary scoring, and hopefully Fabbri can give it to them!

    Mike Commodore's experience with the Wings

    Agreed, I don't believe Babs cares enough about Commodore to literally sabotage his career. My guess is that Babs thought Commodore would be a serviceable 7th D-man, and at some point in training camp Commodore pissed him off and Babs essentially said "F this guy, go sit in the press box".

    Mike Commodore's experience with the Wings

    Such a lame thing to be cocky about. Not exactly a coaching masterpiece to win a gold with a team stacked with first line elite level players. Its like Steve Kerr being called the best coach in the world because the Warriors won the NBA Championship with Curry, Green, Durant, and Thompson.

    Mike Commodore's experience with the Wings

    I was messing around on Youtube, and I found this. Man, he HATES Babs. If what he is saying is true, I can see why.

    I think Svech will be up by the end of 2019. He’s coming off a pretty bad knee injury, so I think starting in the AHL is a good idea, but I hope it’s only temporary and once he’s up to speed he is brought up.

    Seems like we are going to start the season with: Mantha-Larkin-Bert AA-Filp-Hirose Erne-Nielsen-Helm Abby-Glen-De la Rose/Ehn DD-Hronek Nemeth-Green Daley-Chow Howard-Bernier Healthy Scratches - Bowey, Ehn/De la Rose IR - E

    For the record, I wouldn't trade him for Hronek either. My point is simply that even if he is top 50, that's still a top 2 guy offensively speaking (and calling him "top 50 is probably underselling him). He does move move the needle for a team on offense, that's all I'm saying.

    News From Around the NHL *Mod warning page 75*

    Ok, he's not a 50-65 guy, but to be fair, last year only 13 guys were. He's not elite, Ill give you that.

    News From Around the NHL *Mod warning page 75*

    I think your expectations for a D-man are to high. Those stats Kip posted tell me he will definitely bring a scoring punch to any team. We are not talking a guy who is past his prime here.

    Oh Captain, No Captain?

    I have to wonder if Zetterberg has something to do with it. My guess is that once Z’s contract is up, Larkin officially wears the C. who knows, maybe he comes back for a few games at the end of next season for a last hurrah. Highly doubt it, but you never know.

    Hall of Fame Boards

    Hey guys........while this site was down a thread was created on the HOF boards to see what was going on. https://hfboards.mandatory.com/threads/letsgowings-com-down.2679947/ Just wondering if anyone else posts on that site, and if so what their name is. I would hate it if this site ever went down permanently and we all just lost touch. Plus it would be cool if we all have a place to go while its down where we can touch base on things.
