Very interesting comments from Babcock, very passionate - especially about the next generation.  That's basically the challenge going forward - how good will Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan and Dekeyser be?  They are the next generation, the guys that will take over the driving of the bus.  Will the continue to be good complimentary players or will they step up to be The Guy?

Wings haven't won 14-3 in a while.  So they're due.  Tonight is the night. 

 

Dats with a goal and 13 assists.  Johnson scores all 3 of theirs.

Babcock to the Pens it is.  His man-crush for Crosby is no secret, he's been making subtle digs about the lack of high end talent on the Wings for several years.  I can't see him turning down the chance to coach Crosby and Malkin whilst they're still in their 20s.

In Topic: Definition of a real fan

10 April 2015 - 10:39 AM

I noticed in the Game Day Thread there was a lot of talk about what a real fan is.

 

What do you think the answer is?

 

Are real fans not allowed to be negative? I know some people feel this way. I think it's bulls***. You should be allowed to care. Complain. And want more from your team.

 

Like sneaking into the playoffs to me isn't good enough for Detroit. It wouldn't be good enough for Scotty or Yzerman, so why is it for Zetterberg or Babcock?

 

Let's talk it out.

 

How about someone who doesn't want the team to lose, just so it proves to everyone on a message board that they were right, and the team does in fact suck, Ken Holland sucks, Howard sucks etc.

 

A real fan can say "Howard has sucked since coming back from injury" but isn't happy about it.  The fan who gloats "see, I've always said Howard sucks, I told you we should have traded him whilst he had value, I told you we should have tanked", well......
