Besides being one of the better offensive prospects the Wings have had in a long time, he has the prefect attitude to be a life long Wing.


Regner: Next year could be Babcock's last

09 May 2014 - 10:40 AM

 

Mike Babcock will coach the Detroit Red Wings through the end of next season. That's a certainty.

But beyond next year, it's really up to Babcock.  When the Wings gathered to take their team picture and clean out their lockers a little over a week ago, Babcock made his intentions perfectly clear. For now, he'll continue to coach in Detroit in some capacity because his daughter will be a senior in high school. Babcock jokingly said that if he wasn't the Wings coach next season, he'd be Red Berenson's assistant at Michigan.
And then he said, "Look, I can get a job."
After the 2014-15 season -- Babcock's last under contract -- he will have been Detroit's coach for 10 seasons.
It's a common belief that, regardless of how effective a coach is, the message becomes stale after a decade, making a change of scenery beneficial for the team and often the outgoing coach.

Interesting speculation, could there be any truth to this?


Was Legwand worth it?

As the title asks, the Wings gave up a center a lot of scouts characterized as being as close to the next Zetterberg as there can be and a second for a 4th liner and 5 games in the playoffs. Was it worth the cost to keep the streak alive? Or should they have trusted the kids? Thoughts?
