Wasn't arguing with you really, and I've heard rumblings about that too, I just think it's a little silly given the effort these guys have been giving for awhile. Franzen's been floating for way too long and if Babcock loses something with the players after a Cup win and another Cup appearance in the first couple years to follow that, and the players look lazy and old, I'm personally going to side with the coach.

 

And sure, no one's Scotty Bowman, but I just remember plenty of talk about Bowman losing his way with the players too, and I remember guys getting booted out if they were unwilling to work. He had that clout, and he had the GM power most of his time here, which was great.

 

To me, I look at these guys and I say they're all professionals getting paid a ton of money to go out and play a game. Even if the coach is truly a joke and they don't like him, they need to be out giving 100%. There's no excuses for not doing that in the NHL. So even if Babcock isn't getting the message across these days, he's not the only one that should get the boot if it comes to that as far as I'm concerned. Not by a long-shot.

 

And maybe these guys are playing lazier as well because they've learned that it's next to impossible to get traded when you're a Red Wing and highly likely that you'll get re-signed despite a mediocre effort.

yeah Holland seems to see players in a different light once they put on a Wings sweater, and lately it's really starting to hurt the club- bringing back Sammy, Quincey aren't looking like wise moves so far, esp. Quincey

 

and as far as making a big trade to acquire a stud d-man, well, you gotta give something good to get something good and if Holland is unwilling to part with any quality players/picks/prospects to get one, then we're gonna be stuck with what we have

As it stands right now, I don't think the Wings are beating Columbus at the moment.

 

This is the worst Wings team in nearly 30 years.

Seriously, it is one game! STEP AWAY FROM THE LEDGE!!!!

true, but aren't the top 5 picks lottery? Holland would probably draw the 2nd or 3rd and then draft Hok Ptew, or trade the pick for a 2nd rounder and get Haken Luben.  I am 99% sure if Holland had the #1 pick, he would not take MacKinnon OR Jones...

Howard is terrible on breakaways.

 

Carey Price would have saved at least two of those shots.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Sickening. Losing is one thing, not competing is something else.

Props to Jimmy for caring. Only player that felt like they should produce a little effort tonight.

How do you let 2 guys get behind you on a PK?

 

 

Good game by Jimmy.  Glad they pulled him though.  He doesn't need to get shelled any more than he already has.

It could be worse...
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.
