1-0 in the first... Guess who scored?...

Really never enjoyed seeing him on the team. I was hoping Holland would package some of these non-producers in a trade but guess that was asking too much.


Packing up 5 non-producers won't bring in anyone worth getting.  They are non-producers for a reason.  Every team can get 5 4th line plugs from their AHL affiliates.

Am I the only one that's pretty much fine with how we develop, and bring along, talent?

Bolded the important part. 


Its funny how some people feel that EVERY single pick needs to turn into a stud or the GM is doing a bad job. People that are going to start criticizing Holland for his drafting skills either have zero clue what they are talking about, are trolling, or dont like Holland and will say anything they can against him.

Pulk is pretty much one dimensional, but 4 on 3 in OT would be his dimension!

Pulkinnen is really getting exposed with top line minutes..

Make sure Bill doesn't see this

#2638647 Jurco on Conditioning Assignment in GRs

Drew Miller in means Tomas Jurco in. It's that simple. If you believe Miller should play over Jurco, then conversation is over. I think its absolutely absurd.

If we're going to ignore rolls that certain players are excellent at and just give Jurco their job then I think Jurco should be the goalie. Actually, f*** that. He can be BOTH goalies.

I just played the game!!!!!!

#2638368 When does Larkin get the C?

Alright you've made the blocked list.


This is why I don't even bother engaging in conversation anymore.


Talk about clueless...

Dumbest OP ever...

And if you ask me Mike Green can remain goalless as long as he continues to make outlet passes like the one leading to Nyquists goal.

#2636679 Smith-Kronwall

Smith and Pulkkinen get scrappy in practice?  Lol. 
I'd call Smith a ****** for going after one of the smallest guys in the league, but he did go after the biggest too, so maybe he's indiscriminate.  Either way, looks like Riley's brother is all in on trying to earn a solid spot in the lineup.
That or he's dumb.  Really, really, really, dumb. 

The article makes it sound like Pulkkinen is a *****. Coach wanted a battle drill, Pulks couldn't take it and lost his temper and went off on Smith.

People dont like stats around here. Miller is gonna be a minus 100 for his career at this rate, but people are infatuated with him. Makes me laugh that we play him over Jurco and Mantha.

Man, you keeping acting like people are in love with Miller. Can't really think of anyone. Some say he's a good PKer or under-appreciated. Many don't want AA or Mantha playing on the 4th line and having to cover PK duties. You seems to miss the difference between that and infatuation. I'm sure most would love to replace him with a left wing version of Glendening or Helm (someone with a bit of scoring and other facets to their game), but he does what he does well.


Also, Miller's only -3. Sheahan, Nyquist, Tatar, Helm, Marchenko are all lower than him and Mr. Miller gets the toughest defensive assignments along with Glendening. He isn't used for offence so his +/- means something different than it would for an offensive forward.

#2635313 All purpose Mike Babcock thread

You mean aside from Dan Bylsma.  Who did the exact same thing, in the exact same year, only better.  He had even more injuries that year and won his division, and a playoff round. 


Actually, maybe Dan Bylsma is the best coach in the world when I think about it.  I mean, he's got a better win percentage than Babs AND Quenneville.  Just as many Cups as Babs (but who cares about those when evaluating coaches anyway), and he WILLED his team to a division title, the playoffs, and a first round win despite massive amounts of injuries to key players. 


Now that's impressive. 


I'm completely sour on Q now.  All he ever did was win 3 Cups and is 20 wins away from overtaking Al Arbour (in fewer games) for second all time in wins.  Which I've been reliably informed isn't all that impressive because Quenneville has coached for a long time. 


1.  Bowman

2. Bylsma

3.  Babcock

4. Arbour

5.  Quenneville. 


Seems just as plausible as any other top five eh?

Really, Kip?


Joe said nothing about Babs being the best. He even made a point to stress the "among". Yet you feel you have to attack him. Is no one allowed to say anything positive about Babcock unless they qualify it with other coaches who've done the same or better, without you mocking and belittling them?


Get over your Babcock hate.

This is a whole new level of "the sky is falling," even for LGW...
