#2604979 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 30 April 2015 - 11:23 AM

Here's my problem with Mike. He comes out last night and says "we battled our butts off to get in the playoffs" and "the media didn't pick us to make the playoffs" So in that vain it's a great coaching job. Yeah, not so fast. This team was pushing for tops in the East in February, Mike came out to the media and said this was the best team he's coached since 09 a couple of months ago. Holland picks up 2 guys who, at the time, seemed like great fits. We sputtered down the stretch, what happened to our amazing coach? Yes, Mike is one of the best coaches in hockey. I'll never dispute that, but I think I've heard one to many Babockisms, and I'm ready for a change.

Looking good, Hockeymom1960.

#2604954 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by F.Michael on 30 April 2015 - 10:25 AM

Completely agree on Todd McLellan. Bring Blashill up as an assistant. Continue to groom him.


I guess I think of Holland as the main person to bring in talent. When he isn't. I blame him. That's how black and white I look at it though.


This is probably one of his biggest off seasons. He needs to better prepare for Pasha and Z's departures. He really didn't with Lids or Rafalski. Years prior to their retirements, he could've been planning. Granted Kronwall and E never materialized into absolute greats, but again, isn't it his job to foresee some of that stuff? I don't know, maybe I just don't understand his role.


The same way I blame the Lions for years of not getting the right players, I blame other teams. 


If he goes out and gets value for Howard, that would be a step in the right direction.


I don't think you can have 6 million tied up in two #1 starting goalies. 

I will agree with you about Howard - that is if there's a package that can be made to shore up other areas on the roster - then why not look at what's out there.


"I don't know why they're not coming here"  - Ken Holland

That's a hard question to answer.


Is it due to the impression the city of Detroit gives to outsiders? Has the novelty of being a Red Wing worn off? Is playing for Babcock a pain in the ass? By signing some players in the past, and then not getting ice time starting to bite the Wings in the ass?


I'm thinking the answer is 'yes' to  all of the above.

A top six power forward.

#2604817 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by kickazz on 30 April 2015 - 12:03 AM

A legitimate center and a legitimate defenseman that can play 27+ minutes a game and a PURE goal scorer. 


Wishful  thinking. But those 3 are what we need. If you consider Tatar and Nyquist as goal scorers, you're kidding yourself. 

#2604815 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by gcom007 on 30 April 2015 - 12:02 AM

Same as it's been the last 4-5 years...


I would like it if we could just find one legitimate 3-4 defenseman. Not some bulls***ty 5-6-7 defenseman that you have to twist and turn in your head to imagine fitting into a 3-4 spot, but someone who's fully deserving of the spot. Someone who on this team could probably then slide into a 1-2 spot the way things have gone.


I really don't think this is too much to ask.

#2604753 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by wings7 on 29 April 2015 - 10:42 PM

3 out of the last 4 seasons have ended in the first round.


Holland is the person who puts these teams together.


Does he deserve no blame?


Or does he only get recognition when things go well?

First things first this off-season. Re-sign Dan Cleary. The rest will fall into place from there.

And that's what happens when you don't score....

Are you awarded two goals for shooting beyond the blue line?

#2603432 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by rick zombo on 29 April 2015 - 01:47 PM

I just realized: at least Kronwall won't be able to deflect the puck past Mrazek, if this game goes to OT, like he did two years ago vs Chicago. :lol:

If Tampa scores the first two goals, Ericsson needs to grab Johnson and start pounding away.  Forget the game and kill the rat.

Or maybe he could pull a weber and smash his head against the glass and see if the nhl has the f***en balls to suspend him when weber just got a f***en fine

#2601317 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 26 April 2015 - 08:48 PM

Yes you totally read my mind. That is exactly what I would propose. It's the ONLY reasonable answer. *eye roll *

Video review. Make all goals/non-goals reviewable and issue one additional coach's challenge per game. Use it wisely, just like your time out.

That wouldn't help in this case. Once the play was whistled down, the Habs players stopped playiing. It's arguable that The Canadiens might have swept the loose puck away if the play hadn't already been whistled down. If you allowed it after review, then you'd be giving a goal to one team for something done outside of the actual playing time.

Good weather and arguably the best strip club in America.  Why wouldn't he?  


Mons Venus is a nice club but it's a damn sausage party with like a 30:1 dude to stripper ratio.  I had more fun in the Spaceship one when I temporarily lived in Tampa in 2003.
