#2604913 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by shoe on 30 April 2015 - 08:49 AM

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.

#2604901 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by shoe on 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.

#2602919 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by shoe on 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.

#2602132 ECQF Game 6 GDT : Lightning 5 at Red Wings 2 - Series Tied 3-3

Posted by shoe on 27 April 2015 - 07:55 PM

Something is brewing folks I saw the fire in Babcocks eyes after that power play.


Kronwall took a chance there bet it revs the team and crowd up for the 3rd.


Abs cross your eyes when you shoot it will compensate for your bad hand, might score

#2592912 Babcock: Petr Mrazek is starting Game 1

Posted by shoe on 13 April 2015 - 12:31 PM

Heres hoping its the Red Wings turn to have one of those goalies that emerges in the playoffs and steals the show like so many oposing goalies that got red hot when we had to play them over the years.
I think this kid can be that red hot kinda guy.

Pretty crappy way to treat fans of the game. I would guess all winter long the seats in Tampa get a boost in ticket sales from out of state visitors and now they want to repay the favour by making it difficult for those fans to go see a game.

Any business that says your money Is not good enough because you are not this gender race from this state wear these clothes cheer for this team or any other pretty much form of discrimination really shouldn't be in business period. If you don't want my business in April because I live in Toronto or Detroit or the last town in the state of Georgia on i75 before you hit the state line. Then next winter when I want to see a game in February when you have empty seats on a Tuesday night. I WILL NOT buy your tickets. I will not stay in your hotels or dine in your restaurants Tampa I'll wait till Wednesday and go to Miami / Lauderdale and pump my money into their town instead.

Isn't the salary cap a direct reflection of the revenue the league as a whole brings in? If Tampa has empty seats in their building because of restricted seat sales every team in the league should be banging on Gary's door asking how is this good for the game our fans our growth.

#2574901 Avs Coach Roy Not Brightest Bulb

Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained, I like it.


At least he is trying to do something... a power play goal here a lucky bounce there then your down by 1 with 2 minutes to go, if they were playing Detroit you know Howard would let one in with 40 seconds to go then your off to OT
