EXACTLY.

Same thing happened when McCrimmon went to Atlanta, I think it was. Their GA increased dramatically from the previous season.


Is there really no one else for the job? i dont understand why we have him after 3 bad defensive years

I have a feeling that there are A LOT of candidates with similar experience who are willing to prove themselves. If you're a coach, why wouldn't you want to be a part of the Red Wings coaching staff? And the same goes for other successful franchises in the NHL.

That in addition to the fact that he's been here as long as he has makes me think that he's really not the problem. Kenny has to think that he's doing a good job.

If we (OK, I...)go with the theory that the third and fourth lines actually do play in another gear (and subsequently usually force the deefense to play up-speed), then perchance Babcock should play those two lines more - even starting the game with them, and letting them play more the first period. (Maybe he's already doing it and because of my frustration, I don't see it.) Yeah, I know - you take the chance of lack of experience making things even worse for us, but it sends two messages. Play harder and faster and more focused in the first period; and if you don't, you may sit longer than you might wish for. I swear, if this s*** keeps up, they're going to have to try something dramatic and drastic, especially in the first period.

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Final score and recap now in OP.

This team is suppose to have such great leadership but where is it when game after game half of the players don't start skating until about half way through the second period?

I would be TOTALLY PISSED if I had paid 2 hundred bucks for tickets and all I got was the s***ty wholesale turnover cluster f*** I listened to last night.
