#2609928 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by Z and D for the C on 24 May 2015 - 09:33 AM

I'm honestly more upset about Hiller (our powerplay coach from last season) leaving more than Babcock leaving. Our powerplay was great last season, hopefully it stays the same.

Big loss for Michigan and #cawlidgehawkey. Adds to Detroit's impressive forward depth. Big trade comin
 
Big Trade Coming? hmmm


Probably complete speculation. "Detroit has a lot of forwards, so a trade would make since therefor it means that there is one coming even though I have no real evidence".


#2607156 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by Z and D for the C on 11 May 2015 - 10:59 AM

This is insane. Let the guy go. We've made it past the first round once in the last five years, we obviously need some changes.


Agreed. Babcock is completely overrated. He has won at all levels, yeah, but he's had completely stacked teams. I could win at the Olympics if I had Canada's team. The Red Wings have completely underperformed with him as head coach. I don't even want Blashill if he is just like Babcock.

Pretty stupid comments by him no matter his intentions. There are much better ways to motivate a player than by completely dismissing him after one half of one pro season.

Myself, and a handful of others predicted this outcome.


Wow you're so amazing


#2592816 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by Z and D for the C on 13 April 2015 - 08:06 AM

It appears that Babs has Mrazek in mind because he started him in the final and crucial game of the season.  Not like Howie needed the rest.  And plus, Mrazek played well, he got a shutout.
 
So, in light of the above, I put all my chips in and say that Babs puts Howie in net for game 1.  

 
 

I think its petr, thats why he started sunday Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk


It could also mean that he wanted to give Howard, his starter, extra rest before the playoffs started or that much less chance of getting injured. Or that he wanted to get one last look at Mrazek to help decide.

It's going to be Howard though, there is no doubt. Mrazek getting a shut on in the last game of the regular season against one of the worst teams really doesn't mean all that much.

this team is spoiled...the only way to change is to miss the playoffs


No, we need a new coach. This team has no leadership right now.

Incidentally, Zetterberg looks absolutely horrible.

The first two periods were golden. What happened?


The Red Wings can't close a game is what happened.

I think it's absolutely hysterical anyone thinks Mrazek should be our #1

This should really put the whole "Howard can't keep us in a game" thing to rest.

I think the Wings have been playing good, but Gus can't stop s***. He's probably going to lose us this game.


#2579783 3/8 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 5

I hated the pass by Zidlicky more. Everyone was moving forward and he throws a lazy pass backward that Weiss had nowhere to go with it.


I hated Gustavson deciding to take a nap even more. I also hated when he tried to give whatever Boston player was in the crease a hug instead of trying to stop the puck on the second goal.


I hope this is the last game he starts. Bring up Mrazek if we need to.

How is Filppula doing these days?


FOUR POINTS THE LAST TWO GAMES

Love you Ozzie, but it was nice to watch a game without Mickey in which I didn't get to hear the "very very" or "really..really" on every color call.


Also, hearing multiple tones was nice.

Ol' Ozzie was having a little trouble counting to 4 it seems but really started picking up steam at 5.

Should have given two penalty shots. Two players are free, two penalty shots.
