Quincey -3, Cleary -2. Wings have no energy, and we sent Tootoo back to the minors for this game. Great call there by Holland and Babs.

That's Babcock, not Holland. Babcock won't scratch Cleary (revealingly, he did so earlier in the season as a "wake-up call" and then continued playing the guy afterward when nothing changed) no matter the numerous players who could contribute more in the latter's spot, and Quincey will stay both in the lineup and paired with Smith despite neither of those circumstances being good for the team.

He's a good coach with an unfortunate, imbecilic unwillingness to make changes.

It just blows my mind. He's won a cup, a gold medal, and a world championship. But yet he continues to play a washed up role player, and pairs up 2 defenceman who are a combined -20 on the season. Just insane.

Worst period all year bar none, wake up and start to play. You're on goddamn home ice and the fans are booing you, the Lions did a great job of having the fans turn on them at home this year, don't follow suit!

I doubt it's his intention since he was said to have wanted Quincey back but PERHAPS, he is putting Quincey in such compromising positions so we can finally go get a real defensemen.

Isles all time vs Detroit 46-45-8. Just to keep it factual

There are three very obvious flaws with your argument:

1) That's just a hair off .500, a number that very much does not entail domination.

2) It doesn't differentiate between ties and overtime losses, so that isn't factual at all.

3) Both teams have been great, awful, and everything in between during that span, and, needless to say, the rosters for both have seen turnover on the order of several hundred percent, and so the figure means absolutely nothing to begin with.

Quincey and Smith have been awful together as a pairing from day one and yet Babs continues to stick with them. It's honestly ridiculous and I think Smith's development is being hampered by being anchored with Quincey.

Put DeKeyser with Smith and keep Kindl and Lashoff together. Quincey should be a healthy scratch permanently. He's absolutely the worst player on the team.

Travelled 10 hours by car to go to the game and they come out flat.... Isles are way faster and are using there speed to attak or weak defense.
