On a side note, I do think he's a great coach, but I would trade him for Quenville if that was an option. I'm hesitant to want him gone because I don't know what better options there are, which admittedly is influenced by ignorance, I'm not an authority on coach talent. But if coaches do have shelf lives, I don't think we're a new coach away from a Stanley cup, so if roster adjustments are made as well I wouldn't be too sad to try something new.
Babs is arguably the hottest available coaching commodity hence all the speculation (also keep in mind Toronto wants him badly).
I'm indifferent overall...Part of me thinks this team needs some fresh ideas, and maybe a style better suited for what players we have...Then again - is there anyone available that can get the most outta a team that appears to have a 'ordinary' roster?
Holland has spoken to the media. Apparently the Wings drafted a "letter of compensation" that teams must sign if they want to have serious discussions with Babcock. They'll get a 3rd round pick. Also, it seems like this window closes May 25th.
From my understanding - it's the 3rd round pick for 3 seasons (3 picks in all).
Well I certainly don't disagree with that. But I think this is slightly different. He's overpayed, overvalued, and underproducing. No need to acquire a guy like that just because he's "real big" and "real tough". He's a bad player and his own team is dying to get rid of the guy. That should tell you something.
imagine phaneuf and lucic in a wings jersey.
ha! would never happen. none of them are named dan cleary
In a galaxy far far away a man named Kenny Holland found his balls on the shelf.....Once blowing the dust off - he found the courage to swing a trade for 1 Brendan Shanahan.....May the force be with you.
