In Topic: Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

I don't get why you would think that Glendening would "follow Babs"... He's under contract with the Detroit Red Wings. He can't just decide to pack up his gear and move to Toronto, nor would he even if he could. There has been a lot of joking about trading Glendening to Toronto for Kessel or a 1st round pick or whatever because of how much Babcock loves him but he isn't going anywhere. I'm sure Holland and Blashill appreciate Glendening's game just as much as Babcock. He's here to stay and for good reason, he's a great 4th line shut down center.

This all day.

 

Glendenning should be part of the Wings' future. His absence for five minutes of the playoffs turned the entire series around.

Yes, but when Pulk was out there with Dats, he scored.  He is a top 6 sniper, that is his role.  I'd rather him stick with Dats and become a huge threat than see him rot on the 4th line.  I have no doubt Blash will play the kids a bit differently than Babs did.  But you're right, you must earn that spot, and if he struggles, then change it up.  Heck, Jurco is known for his hands and scoring ability (before he got in the dog house) maybe he could it up there with Dats.  He is a bigger body as well...  My point is, I don't want to see Abby and Helm in the top 6 when far better offensive players belong there, and that is what makes me so excited for the coaching change, a new approach to players.

 

Abby scored 20+ goals this season. In the 90's that would probably be akin to scoring 30. I wouldn't mind seeing him continue in the top 6 if he keeps playing like that.

 

As for Helm? Meh. He's a third liner, IMO. If the Wings can find a legitimate 2C (Weiss, UFA, trade), I could see Helm being expendable.

As much as I like Babcock, with Dylan Larkin signing and Blashill on the horizon, I haven't been this excited about and up coming season since the Hossa signing.

 

We know how that ended.

 

Kidding! I'm excited, too, though also somewhat saddened to see Babcock go.


In Topic: Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

Even though I know rationally that the Soviet Union was one of the most powerful and influential military and political super powers in the history of the world, having grown up at the end of the Cold War it's very hard to think of anything regarding Russia or Socialism/Communism as anything other than a Yakov Smirnoff punchline.

 

And that's one of the (many) inherent troubles with socialism. People don't realize when it's taken hold or they laugh it off. "That could never happen here."

 

Back on topic, Fetisov is an authoritarian toady. When one advocates limiting the freedom of another, the only way to enforce it is with a gun.

Shanny called Mrs. B personally and said he'd make her feel right at home.

 

This comment deserves more than just a simple like. Funny stuff. REPOST!
