I thougth the lowest point of the sesaon was a couple weeks ago when they blew lead against Columbus. But no, they lost back to back to that team again with one of the loss a shotout. This team is not just going down, it's in a free fall. And it's only will stop when two morons named Babcock and Holand will leave. I don't care who will replace them. They just need to go. As far as they are around this team will become a doormat of NHL soon. I hate to say that but Pavel would resign and rather will go back to Russia. Why to waste his remaining years for those two incompetent idiots?
The stubbornness of Babcock to keep two scrubs on a line with Datsyuk game in and game out is such a bad coaching decision and it is so clear to everyone and yet a NHL coach getting paid 7 figures cannot see it and doesn't change it.
His job was easy when he had guys like Lidstrom, Yzerman, Shanny and Fedorov. Add in no salary cap and players wanting to come to play here and his job was easy as pie. Now he actually has to be a GM and has no clue how to do it.
