#2613117 Khan: Jeff Blashill to be announced new head coach next week

Posted by kipwinger on 04 June 2015 - 11:08 AM

So it's a coronation, Holland didn't even bother talking to Carlyle, Wilson, MacLean, Boucher, or Tortorella?  


Why bother?  Two of those guys suck, and the other three don't fit our organizational philosophy.  When McLellan and Bylsma were hired elsewhere, the (already low) probability that we'd hire anyone else fell to zero. 

#2613314 Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

Posted by Seraph on 06 June 2015 - 06:46 AM

If there is doubt and discussion about whether a jersey should be retired, it's not going to happen. As you can see, plenty of doubt about 91 and 30 here.

No one here was posting threads to discuss whether 19 or 5 would go up in the rafters.

#2612887 The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

Posted by wings87 on 02 June 2015 - 06:00 PM

I don't think you can call him enigmatic after 2 seasons. He's had 1 good year and 1 bad, that's all there is to it. With Blashill coming in he'll be used properly (scoring role, not checking). So I expect a better year from him.

Still only 22 and was used more as a checker ... Still think he can at least get around 20 goals

To soon to give up on jurco ... I think Blashill will get him going again

Oh wel.  


I'm pulling for the Lightning but unfortunately they feel like the young Cinderella team that loses to the veteran Cup team in the Finals.  



And I agree. That goal was about as kicked as you can get.  There is zero standard for this in the NHL.

How do the hawks manage to play so many of these games where they get called for 1 judgment call or less? Then add on top of that the kicked in goal. I still remember that BS game against the wings when they were called for 0 penalties.

One team has Stevie, the other doesn't. f*** Chicago, forever and ever. Won't be watching, but hopefully Chicago loses.

I thought the cap was supposed to create parity for the league?  Still the same teams every year that make it this far; they just do it with their high draft picks from tanking for years.  Even several years ago I would still watch most of the playoffs after the Wings were eliminated because it was still entertaining for me.  Now though?  Haven't watched a game since our Game 7 against the Bolts.  The product that the NHL trots out there every year is getting worse and worse.  I figure the only way to send a message is to not give them any money and not watch the games.

That's not a goal, but man Hossa is still going strong at 36. 


Agreed!  Hossa isn't a beast like he used to be, but man.....


Now thats bulls***.  4-0.  That was a kicking motion IMHO.

#2609742 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by marcaractac on 22 May 2015 - 03:25 PM

I wanna see a team like we had in the mid to late 90's...Scoring goals, and punching faces, and being at the top of the league...I can dream can't I?

Forgive my ignorance since I know little about the guy.....But what exactly has 'The Wiz' done since thumbing his nose at Detroit, and signing with the BJ's for big $$$?


I haven't heard much about him these past few years...Maybe there's a reason.


The only 2 things that stand out is all his time on IR and most recently in the press box watching the Ducks playoff run.

Jon Cooper inherited a star studded team too

Basically Blashhills credentials are: familiarity with some of the roster


He was won at every level he coached at.


2008 Clark Cup Champion

2010 Blashill led WMU to a top-four finish in the CCHA; best year for WMU in 15 years.

2011 USCHO Coach of the year

2013 Calder Cup Champion

2014 AHL Coach of the year.


But he can only coach kids fed to him.

Go Ducks!


(then please lose in the next round)

#2609222 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by darkmanx on 20 May 2015 - 08:00 PM


I know he had a tough season, but I still love Jurco's upside. I hope the Wings don't give up on him already and the new coach utilizes his ability more appropriately next season. 


He's only 22 as well. Lot's of time to get it going.


Tatar and Nyquist are 25.

Hitchcock should be a frontrunner
