#2608509 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 19 May 2015 - 09:43 AM

Bob McKenzie, on @TSN690, on Babcock staying in DET: "I think all the signs are pointing to that....He's definitely not coming to Toronto."



So now Leaf fans are saying they are the front runners for Blashill....


They wonder why they are hated soo much. All I have heard at work today was Babcock is going to Toronto and if not they are going to take our "Other" coach. Yes, they say "Other" coach.

Nope, Yzerman should NOT be off limits.  He's part of the enemy now until he takes over as GM for the Wings.


Quick one from me, considering the above ^^

#2588657 Do Red Wings fans deserve better?

Posted by Redwings 1926 on 03 April 2015 - 02:13 AM

We definitely do.  If we drop out of a playoff spot, we'll be on par with the Leafs fan as the laughing stock of the league.   


As someone alluded to, what a difference a year makes.  We were so proud of the team playing their hearts out and fighting every night to get into the playoffs last year.  This year ... this team makes me want to throw up.      

I think lumping us in with the Maple Leafs is a bit of a stretch.


While we're worried about a one month slump and our team continuing a  23 year playoff streak in which our Wings have had a winning season every year from 1992 on, 6 trips to the SCF in 14 years and 4 Stanley Cups in 11 years, many Leafs fans are probably wondering if their team will ever get back to the Finals in their lifetime because they haven't won it, or even been there since 1967. Given the current ownership group in Toronto, the future's not looking too hopeful there. 


The Maple Leafs are run like a big, faceless corporation while the Illitch owned Red Wings have been more like a family for the last several years. 


As someone who's been a Red Wings fan practically his whole life, I couldn't ask for much better. Some of my fondest childhood and adult memories are of watching all of those great Red Wings teams of the 90s and 2000s with my dad. Such memories as seeing my 40 year old dad screaming at the top of his lungs on his bed as the Red Wings clinched their first trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in 29 years against the Blackhawks, and the "I Want Stanley" song during the 95' Finals, the fight on March 26, 1997, my dad on the floor screaming in front of the big screen when the clock hit 0, and the Wings won their first Cup in 42 years, the nerve racking 1998 playoff run and repeat, the 2002 All Star team, and rushing home from my high school graduation to try to catch end of game 7 against the Aves, and of course 2008 and 2009. 


I could seriously write a book, but I won't... tonight.


And if you really think we have it so bad, or "deserve better", try putting yourself in the shoes of a die hard Blues, Flyers, or Sabres fan, all teams with very loyal fan bases who've endured decades and decades of frustration. 


As for what other team's fans think of us? Who cares? Win or lose, they hate us, call us know nothings, crybabies, obnoxious, spoiled etc. etc. Why you might ask? reread my post.   :)

I deserve better, I don't know about everyone else.

#2585452 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 26 March 2015 - 07:21 PM

Don't care if the game against SJ isn't over yet. 3 goals on 9 shots. The first goal he went down too soon and that is no one's fault but his. 


Don't care who says "but they weren't his fault" because he gave up a point against PHX in OT and it has been a consistent trend since he got back from injury. 


His stats are horrible. His puck handling is horrible. He can't control rebounds. He can't stop breakaways. Why is he the #1? Because of loyalty and seniority. That's it. That's all it CAN be. 


Petr Mrazek is an NHL goalie. He has superior stats. He is a VAST upgrade in puck handling and speed. He is aggressive and plays pretty well positionally. And he has just as many Cups as Howard has as a starter. So what's the upside in keeping him out?

#2569353 Babcock: "HE WINS, FULL STOP" - THN

Posted by rick zombo on 08 February 2015 - 01:16 AM

Don't set yourself up for disappointment.. As much as Babcock would deserve it the Jack Adams will go to one of Hartley, Laviolette or Trotz. The good thing is it doesn't really matter Babcock is in the triple gold club and by far the best coach in hockey. Mr. I will not let him walk before making a significant offer. I don't care if it's 4 or even 8 million there is no salary cup for coaches. This whole thing will come down to 1 decision does Babs want to stay or coach the best player in hockey or work for Shanahan? Money will not be an issue! It's so funny reading leafs fans thinking that 4 mill would be too much for the wings how quickly they've forgotten that our payroll was higher than theirs


But. He already coaches the best player in hockey.

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 February 2015 - 03:06 PM

Yandle has missed like 6 games his whole career compared to umm Green... There's a reason Yandle is way more desired than Green, he is much more talented, plain and simple

How exactly is he much more talented?

Games played: 544
Career points: 302
highest point total: -59 points
highest assists: 48
career +/-: -25
Pim: 368
Current points: 32 in 49 games

games played: 544
Career points: 344
Highest point total: 76
Highest assists: 57
Career +/-: +50
Pim: 398
current points: 29 in 41 games

Well I guess those 30 less career pim make yandle way more talented....

The universe will not allow the Red Wings to acquire Yandle before he is 35. Fact.
