  1. 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Yeah, the Leafs must be intimidated, scared, or something. In their own zone, they look like they have no idea what to do. Like Don Cherry said after Game 4, this is the NHL they're playing in, they should know things like, on a 2 on 1, take away the pass, but instead they go after the guy with the puck, leaving the goalie to fend for himself. It's basic stuff. I would expect a Babcock coached team to know it. Unless Babcock is letting it happen, to get his player's attention. Either way, they need some toughness back there.

    Suter's been worth the money, but Parise's been a bust!
  3. No doubt a 2002 Avs vs. 2008 Wings series would be great!
  4. 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    I know the Leafs don't have the best defense, but I'm shocked at how poorly a Babcock coached team has been playing in their own zone. I'd expect it in his first year as a coach, to get his players attention, but not in year three. The Leafs are paying Babcock $7 million a season, he should be teaching his defensemen better positional hockey than this.
  5. I think the 2008 Wings could beat the 2002 Avs. The 2008 Wings dominated all year, they outshot their opponents on an average by 11. They had the puck the entire game!
  6. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    I'm happy Holland is back. I agree with others, I like the trades he's made the last couple years. I don't have a problem with him not starting the rebuild sooner. When you have Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Kronwall on your roster, you do what you can to do to make the playoffs and win. As soon as Datsyuk retired, the rebuild began. After 2 years, Holland's done a good job unloading disappointing players (Tatar, Smith, Mrazek), and getting draft picks. I'm fine with Blashill back. We're not ready to contend yet, so there's no rush to bring in a big named coach yet. We'll see in the next two years if Blash is the guy or not, while we rebuild, to see if he's the coach to take us to the next level.
  7. I agree about 2008, it was the most dominate team of the 25 year playoff run. 2002 was a great team, but they were down twice in the playoffs. 2002 probably had the most drama. It was my favorite of the 4 Championships. It really only got scary once in 2008, the 1st round in Game 5 when it went to OT. I know after Dallas went down 0-3 in the Conference Final, they forced a Game 6, but we still were in control of that series. Plus Game 6 wasn't much of a game.
  8. Bad Fans?

    I'm with the rest of you. I actually stopped watching because I'm cheering for loses. I don't feel bad about it, because losing now means wins later. I'm actually not interested in watching hockey at all right now. We'd be bad fans if we ditched the Wings and started cheering for another team.

    I figure we'd have to give up AA and a 1st, and probably someone in GR to get Ottawa to listen. Again, I haven't looked into it very close, i.e. cap space, so my demands with not including Larkin/Mantha in a trade is probably too much. The first player Ottawa would ask for is Larkin. But I know we have a couple good young forwards in the minors maybe Ottawa would be interested in.
  10. A year and a half after the discussion started, #40 for sure, the rest are probably no.

    We need defensemen, not forwards. I haven't looked into it to close, but if Karlsson is on the trade block, we have cap room, and can get him without trading Larkin and Mantha, I hope Holland tries. However, it maybe impossible, with my demands
  12. Good seeing Mantha and Larkin getting points early.
  13. How's the LCA

    Watching games on TV, I don't like the organ. I was a big fan of the "Let's Go Wings" song at Joe Louis, but at LCA all I've heard is it played on the organ.
  14. I'm watching on Sportsnet. As some of you may know, I'm very critical of announcers, but tonight's announcers are decent. They don't get to excited either way.

    Thanks for the info!
