#2605512 Free agents this off season

Posted by marcaractac on 01 May 2015 - 10:01 PM

Agreed ... I do think it's almost a certainty Phaneuf will end up here ... Grand Rapids win then Babs will travel for game 5 with holland and I'm sure a lot will be said on that trip

Babs also said he got into an argument with his wife ... Can't help but think that had to do with the mention of Edmonton (reminds me of pronger and his wife lol)

Seriously doubt his wife will give the okay to go to Edmonton and spend -40 days over there ... I'd say there's no way he goes there

Only teams I'd see Babs leaving us for would be a San Jose/Pittsburgh/saint louis type situation

 

If this happens and we keep Babs, it will be a great summer even if nothing else were to happen. We have depth up front, getting Dion here would give us depth on the blueline, and we have a great goalie tandem. I really do think it would make for a potential "go all in" type deal at the trade deadline.

Painful.

Basically the reason why you try, as a team, to not go to game 7.

Man that UFA class is something else :(




#2605111 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by Playmaker on 30 April 2015 - 03:22 PM

 

How do you define "competitive"?  Making the playoffs every year and losing in the early round?

 

If so, then I agree that we're competitive.

 

Since when do we need to measure team success against Edmonton and Buffalo?   

Who would you like to compare the Wings success to then?  Which team is it that makes the CF or SCF every single year for 10 years or more?

Looking good, Hockeymom1960.


:lol:

I was just coming here to post that I swear it wasn't me, but this brings much more lulz.

#2605059 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

You wrote more than you needed to.  My whole point is that Holland's previous successes shouldn't give him immunity at his current job.  Immunity is dangerous at any job.  If I had immunity at my job, I'd have strippers and scotch here every day

 

But it's not just "past successes".  That's the point.  He's still a very successful GM, and his teams are still very successful.  It's not like we're stinking up the place, missing the playoffs, and competing for lottery picks. 

 

I agree that you should have total immunity at your job.  But you also shouldn't be fired if you don't remain at the absolute apex of your industry in perpetuity.

 

We've gone six years since our last Cup.  Exactly the same amount of time between our Cups in 2002 and 2008.  It would have been a mistake to fire Holland back then, and it would be a mistake now.

Jon Cooper immediately moved to ask the NHL to suspend PK Subban as  a result of this arson. 




#2604918 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by rick zombo on 30 April 2015 - 09:00 AM

What are the chances the Pens fire their coach and get Babcock?  

That's what I think will happen.




#2604913 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by shoe on 30 April 2015 - 08:49 AM

I hope its Babcock with a Director of player Personnel tag attached to it. I think he is an incredible hockey mind and has earned the right to call his own roster as well as lines.




#2604900 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by greenrebellion on 30 April 2015 - 08:12 AM

Without Babcock this season, we miss the playoffs imo.  Team's outperform their true talent when Babcock is coaching.  Wouldn't be surprised if the Wings streak ended next season without him.

The feeling is mutual with the KH attackers.  I guess they don't like multiple cup winners.

 

People don't understand/accept that we are going through a re-build. Pretty much every elite team in today's NHL was horrible at a point. In our case, horrible is losing in the first round of the playoffs. While it completely sucks and its frustrating to see us lose, you have to see the big picture.

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 29 April 2015 - 10:47 PM

 
Barf. Why on earth would you root for that scum bag PK?


Because he's a great player and seems like a decent guy? Because he does his job and gets under people's skin? Sure, he's immature and impulsive (Smith's disease), and sometimes he crosses the line. He's certainly not the only one who does.

So I agree. Go Habs Go!

Yes they are, and if they had a better goalie i don't think we would have looked as good as we did.

Yeah and we let them off the hook in game 4.  Bishop took 2 penalties and scored on himself, and we let them off the hook...ugh.  Imagine if we had won that game.  Then there's no Tampa comeback, there's no 'feeling better about ourselves', nothing.  We probably win in 6 worst case.

 

Woulda coulda shoulda.
