Coaching is the LAST problem with the Wings. It's the Defense! Plain and simple! We have ONE .... one top four D man. The rest are all 5,6,7s. Danny will be there but he has no mentor as Kronner is fried. It is the D!
It's a big problem, sure, but the Wings have holes everywhere. I still not sure if the whole balanced lines thing (skill, big body, speed) is the way the game is changing or if it's just a Babcock thing, but the lineups always look like a Frankenstein-style monster. If it's a Babcock thing, he might need to leave. If the game is just changing to where each line has an anchor, he should stay because he's still getting quite a lot out of our young guys.
But at the end of the day wins matter, and like someone else pointed out, aside from '07, '08 and '09 we haven't won much or had impressive seasons. I think the dump and chase style Babcock has been having them play is the biggest culprit. I remember back in '09 he said dump and chase was stupid, but now that's all we do, and as a result we get a shot on net and then rush back to defend. Every. Freaking. Time. And I think we have talented enough players to carry it into the zone. His system has all but killed our offense over the years.
