NHL Network (radio) just blasted the Wings management. 
 
Some caller they were talking to brought up Babs for being in the running for the Jack Adams. The host immediately wrote it off, saying Wings management have done an absolute terrible job with getting in successors for Lids, Ralfs, Datsyuk and Zetterberg and that Howard is awful. States after next year when Dats and Hank are bordering retirement, the Wings are looking at a long playoff dry spell. 
 
Agree with him for the most part. 


The media has been writing that script since 2002. I think Holland has botched the defense since Nick retired, but beyond that people claimed the Wings were done when Stevie left too.

Apparently they haven't watched all of the young talent on the team this season. The best line is comprised of three "kids".

I think the future is very bright with some tinkering along the way.

If I would have seen that lineup in the GDT at the beginning of the year I would have thought somebody was high.

Yes, Mike Babcock is a horrible GM.

Hey, I'm loving Nyquist and Tatar (the others way too early to tell)......
 
The question is, do these guys have the talent to be sufficient replacements for Dats and Hank when they're gone?


Nyquist if he progresses should get close offensively but neither will touch Z or D defensively. But finding a replacement for either is going to be damn near impossible, not a lot of those types of players lying around.

What was with the huge Canadian flag over the crowd during the anthem? Is it a special day? I thought we were the flag wavers.

Don't forget about the salary gone when those two are gone, which can be used to sign 2-3 quality free agents. It's not all about minor system development or nothing, they are capable of getting players outside of the existing team.

The team is capable of going outside to acquire players, but do we trust that Holland still knows how?

It came down to us or Minnesota for Parise and Suter, they chose to play together in Minnesota. The effort was there, he recognized what we needed and threw a generous offer to both, they elected to play for Minny instead. 

 

Other opportunities like this will come up again in the future, I can guarantee it. I don't think because we missed out on that situation that our future is now doomed and we'll be a non-playoff team for the next 10 years or so. I have faith in the management system to get what we need and continue to contend going forward.

Soft floating blue Line shot that NEVER creates a rebound. That defines our game.
