What I love is we have only scored 2 goals in 3 games and we continue to pay Franzen as if he is a goal scorer!

I get the feeling that Mike Babcock truly believes that if you just want it enough, and compete like hell, and bring it every single day, that you actually CAN squeeze blood from a stone.

 

The thing is, that's basically what got this team to the playoffs.

Seems like a day-to-day thing.

 
BRING BACK LEGACE!!!!



Don't give Holland any ideas.

My handle is from 2005...give me a break. I wear it like a badge of honor.

Nyquist should have tried throwing the puck at the defensemen's skate.  Goalies are too good nowadays to beat them with a wraparound like that.  


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

I wish I could say it's Boston outplaying us but it's us being cute and just not playing properly. This team needs a power forward to trade for franzen. He's big and fkin useless

 

We need a Wayne Simmonds like no one's business. IMHO


Don't Toews me, bro!

Man do I miss Stuart.
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.

I'm thinking bringing Leino back would fit into this team's offensive philosophy.

This team needs to change either the coach or GM.  Some kind of fresh change is needed in the philosophy.  The players don't respond to Babcock anymore, so that's a place to start . Bring in Laviolette.

 

Holland will probably never be fired.  I do blame him more than Babcock, but it just won't happen.  Kenny will have to step down himself.  Kinda like a samurai acknowledging his failure and dishonor.   

 

You seem to get a hard time here, but I am not a homer wearing red tinted glasses kneeling at the altar of Holland is a Genius God Who Can Do No Wrong. I agree with many things you say. Kudos for staying tough with all the nasty playground crap you take here.

 

As for Babcock, he has good qualities, but when it comes to line combinations and adaptability he is playing checkers when the game is chess. 

 

I'm not as frustrated with this game as most, because this game, this sloppy horrible embarrassing play, was long in the making and is the direct result of Holland having no plan, no strategy, no adaptability, no creativity, no resourcefulness  and basically no clue for years. There is always some excuse on why we can't put together a team. He tried to buy a D, but that failed. What did he do after? Nothing. He doesn't know how to anything except pay for it, but those days are gone. Meanwhile I see plenty of other well developed teams like the one embarrassing us tonight. They all have the same cap and the same pool of players to choose from, so what's the deal? Holland is a house of cards. He has ridden the coat tails of our scouts, coaches, star players and an unlimited checking account pre cap. With all that (or most of it) gone, this is what he brings us. The kids deserve all the credit for making the playoofs, but they were thrown into all this by mistake, not by design, because there was NO design. Don't bother telling me about injuries. Of course Hank is a killer, but an entire team doesn't collapse to making minor league mistakes when the captain is down. Where are Cleary and Samuelsson tonight, Holland's big off season... what, I guess... re-acquisitions? Were those too mediocre has-beens his only option? Seriously, do you believe that? There was nothing else he could do, nobody else to pursue, trade, deal...? Oh wait, my mistake, there is Alfredsson bringing all that skill, experience and leadership to the ice this series. Yea, he was Holland's idea too. What a genius.
