#2293129 Detroit-Nashville: Babcock is loosing coach battle

Posted by 55fan on 20 April 2012 - 02:21 AM

I hate loosing.

We've been coming up with line combos all season, but there's always something that doesn't click. No matter how you line people up, there's always one guy that doesn't fit.

One "superline" and three ho-hum lines won't get it done. We really do need Helm and Eaves to give us a good bottom 6. If they were in right now, I'd say load up the top line, but since the bottom lines aren't that stellar, I really can't justify putting Hank, Pavel, and Flip on one line and leaving Bert, Mule and Hudler/Cleary as a line. There's also the problem of being low on centers at the moment.

I don't think the problem is in the line choices. We just need to get the pucks past Rinne and have someone there to catch the rebounds when we don't. If we had a Homer type on every shift, we'd have way more goals.

#2293095 Luongo gone from Vancouver this summer ...

Posted by 55fan on 20 April 2012 - 12:48 AM

If Luongo gets traded, I imagine it will be to a city that begins with "T". Toronto or Tampa. Both in desperate need of goaltending.

Toledo?

No way would I take Bobby over Jimmy.


#2293092 Quenneville fined $10K

On the other hand...

Both Quenville and the bad officials get screwed. Winning day in my book.


#2292696 Trade Zets /Dats and Franzen

Not so fast, guys. There is merit to this.

We could trade them to Florida and get Kopecky back.


#2292125 Until the End ...

Lids does not deserve to be booed out of the arena after his last home game.

Therefore, there are only two options:
1) We win and continue on
2) He re-signs

I'll take both, please.

I'm in my trusty Hank 08 finals jersey. The thing reeks but 'tis all good. And now I smell pot lol

I don't know why the cops allow potheads to roam free. They're not hard to weed out.

Ok, this is the youngest Draper child. I want to see a pic of Howard's baby in the Cup this summer.

I've saved several e-mails that I've gotten recently just for threads like these, but I've used them all.

Amazing how there's so much funny stuff out there, yet we laugh so little in life.

That's why I love these threads. They bring out the best in us.
