In Topic: Pittsburgh: America's hockey capital? Lol

09 July 2015 - 08:36 PM

Growing up in Michigan, and having family from Pennsylvania, I had two favorite hockey players as a kid. Steve Yzerman and Mario Lemieux. Wings have always been my number one team and the Penguins my number two. But most people from what i've seen visiting Pitsburgh all these years don't care about the Penguins unless they are close to winning something. They are more Steelers and Pirates fans. So no way are they America's hockey town.

I see Chicago suffering when the Kane and Toews contracts start .Especially if the salary cap ever goes down lower than 71million. I see the Kings or Ducks, coming on strong for a cup run next year. The East doesn't seem like it has any scary teams like the West. Maybe Tampa comes back, maybe Montreal or New York. I Think its gonna be the Ducks though. With that said, I don't like the Hawks at all, but Marian Hossa is one of my favorite players and I'm glad his name will be on the cup 3 times.

I'll be more impressed if they win another cup with the huge contracts coming on the boards from Toews and Kane. They are favored to win the cup again next year but they won't. I look for teams to come in and pick at a few of their restricted free agents like vultures cuz they know the hawks are gonna be hard pressed against the cap.

Lucic is a piece of s***. An absolute scumbag. I don't give a damn how good of a player he is, it would be an embarrassment to have him in a Wings jersey. There's a lot of players I hate that would be great on the Wings and I would be more than happy to suck it up and bring them in (Weber, et al) but Milan "Human Garbage Can" Lucic is not one of them. f*** that guy.

 Amen to that.


In Topic: It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

I'm looking forward to Blashill taking over the Wings. Considering he coached most of the team in GR, he's the right man for the job.

 

As for Babcock, thanks for the 10 years, but it's time for both sides to move on. Goood luck in Toronto, you'll need it. I don't think the majority of the fans and media in Toronto are aware this rebuild will take 10 years. The media is saying they'll be bad for a couple years. A COUPLE? They have nothing, it's like taking over an expansion team. They're going to have to bottom out for 5 years to go anywhere. The media and fans need to leave Babcock alone, but I doubt they will. In 3 years they'll probably demand he be fired.

 

Other then the guaranteed money, I think this is a horrible decision by Babcock.

 

 

Remember what Babcock talked about after the Wings were eliminated. How the Wings don't draft high anymore. Well this is his chance to draft top 10 picks for the next few years. Thanks Babs, good luck in Toronto. I wanna see what Blashill can do with the kids. I think its gonna be great for the Wings. My only question is, can Holland get us a few big pieces to compliment the talent we have coming?
