So two years of this idiot and two years of sloppy, sloppy, play. I also heard they thought he was a idiot when he coached the defence in Atlanta. So will we see a coaching change with the defence or will Babcock keep him on staff? If he goes what are some potential replacements as I am tired Of Detroit looking so sloppy in their own end.

To make matters worse, Maclean might take a job somewhere else

ya I've posted in a couple places about McCrimmon needing to leave it don't matter who we get as long as he's replaced. What I don't get is that why hasn't Babcock done anything with McCrimmon. Does he just let him delegate the defense aspect and then walk away with no say? It just doesn't make any sense. Seems like both Babcock and Maclean would look over to him and just have a WTF face and then slap him in the mouth.

You guys crack me up.

Seriously - it's as though McCrimmon used his Jedi mind trick to convince the Dmen like Rafalski, and Ericsson to screw up, and turn the puck over :rolleyes:

I've been saying get rid of him ever since we brought him into the coaching staff.

Isn't it odd that ever since he joined the staff that we've dropped from one of the best defensive teams in the league to one of the worst?

Same here. It's not a coincidence that our defense and PK tanked once he was brought aboard. Any team he has joined has had the exact same problem. Google it.

Hmm, yeah... I also think you're full of crap and are venturing into the hyperbolic, given that the Thrashers` players apparently McCrimmon should have been made head coach instead of Anderson after Hartley was fired.

Looking for someone to blame?

Oh, and Babcock knows more about hockey than you do.

Babcock knows more about hockey than pretty much all of us, doesn't mean people can't talk about stuff in here.

As for McCrimmon, can't blame him fully as he can't make the players do stuff on the ice, but everybody has to have some accountability at the job, he probably shares some of the blame for bad defense at times.

Honest question, Why not bring in Ken Hitchcock to take over McCrimmon's job? (or if we lose Maclean)

Good cop, bad cop might work.

I don't think it's too far out of the realm of possibility to blame McCrimmon for E's apparent breakdown in the confidence department. Obviously not gonna blame him for a lackluster season from the vets, but he has a much bigger impact (or should) on the younger defensman... Like E. Not saying that all of the blame should fall on McCrimmon for E's fall from grace... but some, maybe most. If he has been working with E this season as much as he should have been... he failed.

Not enough room on the bench. Nyuk nyuk nyuk nyuk.

But seriously, I'm not sure if I've ever seen a head coach take a demotion to being an assistant coach for an NHL team, especially someone with the resume of Ken Hitchcock.

Tom Renney went to Edmonton this past season as an assistant.

MacLean, I believe; he took over as the offensive coach after McLellan got hired by the Fish.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.
