I tend to like Jagr more and more over the years.

Hall of Fame Coach Al Arbour Dies at 82

If Bowman is the best coach in NHL history, Al Arbour isn't far behind.  


And yes, he spent several seasons with the Red Wings as player.  




Kronwall in the Playoffs

04 May 2015 - 08:11 PM

In the playoffs, since Lidstrom retired, Kronwall's stats read like this.


25GP, 1G, 5A



Simply not good enough from your #1 defenseman in the playoffs.  Even his biggest fans here who claims he's a legit #1 will have a hard time defending those stats.  I know Ericsson is a cog and the rest of the defense is underwhelming talent wise, but Kronwall just hasn't been very clutch for us.  I expected more from him when Lidstrom retired.    


We need to find a #1 defenseman.  That's what this team needs more than anything.  I know it doesn't grow on trees or in lower draft picks, but it's our biggest need.  Even more than a legit scoring winger with size.  

Man Games Lost

I found an interesting website that studies man games lost and overall impact on team. Not sure I entirely understand it yet, but found it informative.  Anybody else know this website?


I've attached the link below.  This shows the total man games lost since 2009-2010.







It appears the teams that have won the Cup since that time were the teams with the fewest injuries.
