#2672791 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Hate ? Cmon man, are you like 12? The guy is a hockey coach.  He got out coached big time and has a lot to learn at this level but at the end of the day he's just a dude and dudes make mistakes. 

 

You don't think Henry VIII or Ivan the Terrible would have him executed?

His voice sounds like Babcock's.

Hold the phone. None of them are having success till they win a cup. Otherwise they're all just a bunch of St. Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks. Season and playoff wonders who can't win out. 

 

Maybe.  We'll see what Dallas does, but Tampa has had several deep playoff runs since Yzerman took over.  We've won one playoff series since he left from what I remember.  If not for Bryzgalov's terrible goaltending, we'd have one series win since 2009.  

 

Also, both Dallas and Tampa have bright futures and young stars.  Our future is not as bright.  Holland has not set this team up for future success.

The real playoff streak was being a Cup contender for about 17 years or so.  Many of those seasons, they were the Cup favorite.  No other team besides Montreal from the 50's to the 70's had a streak like that.  

 

However, the last 6 or 7 years are all about keeping a stupid streak alive just to give us one week of pathetic playoff hockey to watch.  That streak is not impressive.  That's what the Blues streak was about all those years.  Make it to the playoffs and lose one week later.  Who cares?  


This.

 

If Holland wasn't so in love with Blashill we'd see a new coach for next season, but nothing will change.

How can Holland have the nerve to fire a coach when he's been here so long and has sucked as GM for many years?  That would take some nerve.  The ownership needs to step in and fire them both.  The fact that Yzerman and Nill are having so much success just makes it sting more.

Their PP was so bad, from the outside looking in, it didn't look like they practiced it at all. Stagnant telegraphed passes, players without the puck standing still, just down right boring. Datsyuk wouldn't have had to worry about hitting the post if he would have one timed it.

 

Putting two players on the point would be nice for starters.  And learning to shoot the puck quicker instead of stopping it and letting the defenders get in positions to block shots.

Is Kenny Holland still going to brag about 2013?  That's his "You Forgot Poland" moment.

One of them needs to be traded off season.

 

One of them needs to be executed in front of the other guy.  Kind of like Blofeld used to do in Bond movies to scare his minions.  Maybe that would send the survivor a message.

Kenny Holland and Blashill need to be fired after this game.  The Ilitch family needs to start giving a crap again.  This team is NOT going in the right direction.  4 out of 5 playoff exits in the first round.

Where the hell is AA?

 

I'll be checking in there after this series is over.

The Wings really don't look a team that cares at all to me. They just don't

 

I don't think effort is the problem.  We just have limited talent.  Our GM and ownership have assembled a team that isn't very good.

Tampa really doesn't deserve this game but Bishop is playing out of his mind

 

Stopping Helm and Sheahan on breakaways?  I wouldn't say he's standing on his head.  We're not the '84 Oilers.

Dips*** Nyquist should have one-timed the puck...............oops, I forgot we don't do that.  Too unsportsmanlike.

Joakim Andersson: 1:57 of ice time with four PK's already.

Absolutely dumbfounding decision to play him over Mantha.

 

But he's the greatest faceoff man since Yanic Perreault.

Looks like Johnson is out, hopefully for the game.

 

Hopefully, for the season.

They've played how many games against Bishop? And STILL don't know you have to go high on him?

Not much room anywhere on this guy to shoot.
