Oh yeah.   :lol:

 

Well, they still won the Cup a few years later, though.  With a roster different than the one he built.  So a change helped them, and not because babcock is a bad coach.

 

I think you are confused on what the coach vs. GM's  jobs are if you think Babcock built any roster.

How do your feet go out when the stick was in his midsection? Complete dive by the rat. Try watching the actually play, Pierre.

Good god the Ducks had TWO hall of fame defenseman and a goalie playing out of his mind PLUS two coming all-stars, yeah hard to win a cup with such a roster. Carlyle hasn't had any success since then.

 

Babcock is the best coach in the league and him getting this roster into the post season has been an unbelievable job, no other coach would have accomplished that.

I haven't been reading this thread, so this may have been said already...I think we're done for year with this game. We're on the power play and it looks even strength. There isn't one aspect of this team right now that is standing out. The goaltending, offense, defense, power play, penalty kill...it all looks like s***.

I'm just being annoying now, but this series is why I wasn't opposed to adding Chris Stewart for cheap. Yeah, he's Christ Stewart. But he'd be running Rask.

By the way my complaints about the officials don't change the fact that our special teams are just embarassing and the PP has been for much of the season.

No pressure..no cycle game,. PP is awful..when they do get a scoring chance they either miss the net or it is blocked.

I have never not finished a playoff game, this might be the first.... First time I have had zero hope in winning or even scoring a goal.

We managed to keep it 1-0. That's a victory of sorts. And we looked decent at the end there. Boston is getting their sticks in the way and are getting a ton of lucky bounces. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

Babcock can give his two cents, and it's well established that the two disagree frequently, but Holland has ultimate say on all personnel matters.

 

So no, I don't think Babcock is equally responsible for lack of moves.  He doesn't have the authority to make trades or offer contracts.   How could he possibly be just as responsible?  It's literally not his responsibility. 

 

Where has it been established the two disagree?  I don't remember hearing that other than on LGW.  I've always thought Babcock has a lot of influence in the organization because of his status as a top coach in the league.  

 

In any case, Babcock is responsible for crappy line combos and not making good adjustments.  Playing Abby on the top line and Legwand on the 4th line is laughable. Legwand is a solid player who could contribute, instead he's paired with Glendenning and Miller.  


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