In Topic: Who is the coach next season?

I hope its Babcock with a Director of player Personnel tag attached to it. I think he is an incredible hockey mind and has earned the right to call his own roster as well as lines.

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

30 April 2015 - 08:16 AM

I would like to see an old title brought back to the red wings: Head Coach -  Director of Player Personnel. Which was once held by Bowman. I think Babcock has paid his dues and deserves a raise and more responsibility.
Holand morphs into - Executive Vice President and Alternate Governor of the Detroit Red Wings
Same great minds but with change moving forward, and all part of a great big red wings plan one day Develano Retires Holand moves into his position Babcock moves into the GM position and then we promote the coach in the AHL.
I think Holand has been soft and safe and picked up some wishy washy players over the years, I think Babcock as Director of Player Personnel would stop that and maybe make some hard trades, and cuts that may not be popular but would make for a better team.
Next year my wishes would be simple a team with more Babcock influence less Holland influence.

For everyone trading Howard I ask you this... Who is your backup then? I sure hope its not Gustavsson

In Topic: Kronwall suspended one game

28 April 2015 - 07:10 PM

The league should be thanking Kronwall and writing him a cheque for all the exposure his hit and other hits have done for the league over the years. All I heard on every sports show this morning was talk of the hit not the goals not the saves not the fact Washington won a game 7.


May as well get Reebok to add frilly Tutus to the bottom of every jersey next year too.
