I never thought I would be saying this, but I think I just turned into an interim Habs fan. F*ck the Bruins.

Nothing would make me a Habs fan.

Great series by the Bruins they schooled us. Too bad Z, Dats and Alfie weren't 100% or else we could have made it a series. Rask is just too tough to beat 4 games anyways and their defense onviosuly blows ours away. Big E missing would've helped us. Anyways Boston will win cup so it's all good. We always lose to the eventual champions right?

Theres nothing wrong with Abby on the team. Hes just not a top 6 player which they are trying to force him to be. He is what the Wings need on the 3rd and 4th.

Agreed. He's a very good bottom 6-er. I can see Babcock's thinking, but it doesn't work. Hopefully, whether its Mantha or an FA, we can get a proper threat on the first line next year.

Positives:

Holland wanted answers he has them now:

 

Team needs to get bigger, meaner, tougher and still younger.

 

Re-sign Dekeyser, Monster (if he wants) and bring in defensive help plus 2 enforcers.

 

DONE

Mule, Alfie, Legwand, Bertuzzi, Miller ......

 

DO NOT

sign someone like Jagr, Selanne...

 

play the young kids add toughness and look hard at the Boston model that's the way to build a playoff winner.

 

Boston is the team coming out of the east and hopefully they are facing someone not name Blackhawks

So who's doing Ken Holland's exit interview?

 

Jimmy D but I really doubt that happens for many reasons which I won't go into now, Im sure there will be a thread to do that in soon.

I did say "interim" lol. I want to see them do the things we should have done and knock some heads. Fight dirty with dirty.

I've thought about it lately, and I think I want Mantha on the team straight out of camp. Let's just go all in with the youth, get them as much time with Z and D and maybe Alfie as possible.

I absolutely hate hearing, "they just need more experience, they'll be ready in a few years, growing pains." Absolute bulls***.  

 

What about Krug? What about Hamilton? What about Riley Smith? How come they don't need "just a bit more experience". These guys have just as much experience as our young guys and absolutely destroyed them.

 

It's not experience, it's talent and our team has very little.

I think this series showed the glaring holes in this Wings team. I do not believe Holland will do anything or enough to make the drastic changes that this club needs to be competitive again. That said I will never follow another hockey team. Still proud to be a Wings fan despite everything.

 

Hard to say whether Holland will make the changes....this is the first year where we have looked really outmatched in the playoffs, with our secondary players contributing nothing. Maybe it will be a shock the system. Organisational noises suggest that Franzen & Kindl may be running out of time, Alfie may not take the necessary pay cut to come back, and if they can't find an FA better than Lashoff we should all go home. It could be significant changes whether we want them or not, especially with the deadwood leaving. If alfie goes we suddenly have him, Quincey, Bert, Cleary, Sammy all leaving at once, with probably  one of Franzen, Tootoo or Weiss bought out, That;s a minimum of 18m to spend (the cap increase should so salary raises for the RFAs).

Well, good season. 

 

like hell...saying this was a good season or in any way acceptable is why we're stuck in the 8th seed and barely squeaking into the playoffs.


Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

well that was a playoff series none of us expected us to win and 95% of us never thought we'd get into. They kids got us in and 

 

after their success in the Calder last year this series has taught them what its all about in the big boys playoffs. It'll stand them in

 

good stead for the future. We have probably seen Alfie's last game in the NHL tonight and also at least 4 as Redwings. 

 

The Bruins showed they are a good side, and also that big body's with skill usually prevail. I can't fault our guys for their effort

 

just the better side won out. Roll on next year and hopefully some fresh faces with some size joining the roster.

"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop

I agree with this. The Wings need an actual goal-scorer, especially since Franzen doesn't care about playing hockey for 3/4 of a season.

Krug was a great find it has to be said. Hamilton was projected to be an immediate stud when drafted high. Smith was the chump change from Dallas and suddenly blossomed. 

 

The Bruins have a system, a core near their peak, and a winning team to step into. Much easier all round.
