You kind of lose credibility when you can't even get the top four right. Quincey and DK are together. Smith is only on top line(where he should stay) because Ericsson is hurt.

yeah you are right - replacing smith with quincey makes the top 4 respectable!

 

quincey, kindl, laschoff and smith are all much of a muchness - they are all crap. i struggle to see how replacing the coach would make any difference - the wings would still have a vastly inferior roster to the top teams.

 

it is the guy that has overseen the wings go from having the best top 4 in hockey to having one of the worst in the space of a few years that has to take the blame

cant believe people are calling for babcock's head - just look at the roster of the wings vs the bruins and it should be clear where the blame lies! they are superior in every area and should have swept the series. the only area we are even close is at forward and even there they have far better balance. hell the wings dont have a single top 6 winger!

it is remarkable that the wings even made the playoffs with the defence we have.

a few years ago our top 4 was lidstrom, rafalski, stuart and kronwall; now it is kronwall, dekeyser, ericsson and smith. that is just depressing!

well the hawks struggled to score against the wings so of course an LA team which has a better, more experienced D and the best goalie in the world has a massive chance. it will also be interesting to see how the hawks cope against a much bigger and more physical team over 7 games. i actually make the kings favourites in that series.

 

i also think the bruins-pens series is pretty even
