No one will ever top this "monster" design.







Unless someone comes out wearing a GWAR mask.

I agree, Mrazek is definitely the type of goalie that thrives under pressure, and is at his best when he faces a ton of rubber.

I think that a lot of the success attributed to Howard AND Mrazek really belongs to Babcock's shot suppression system.  I'm not saying that either guy wouldn't be good otherwise, but it's pretty clear that they didn't get challenged nearly as much as most goalies do.  I think I'd wait to see how things pan out under Blashill before I start penciling in starting goalies.  Might be that Howard stink worse than we thought, and Petr easily takes the job.  Then again, maybe Mrazek falters under more shots every single night and the veteran is our saving grace.  Who knows?

I should have put money on this. Holland says he likely stands pat and goes out and gets the big fish. Other years he says he will be active and does nothing lol

Higher cap hit for short term. Good contract.

Landing Shattenkirk would be best case scenario, but I'd definitely rather see Holland sign Green over Franson any day of the week.

Can we terminate Weiss?

#2614263 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by Helmethead on 13 June 2015 - 10:01 PM

If Kenny is giving up Mantha and a 1st can't he do better than Phaneuf? I hope so.

Is this why Kenny Holland almost always offers some type of role within the organization after they retire?

#2606976 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by Dominator2005 on 10 May 2015 - 11:44 AM

This is insane. Let the guy go. We've made it past the first round once in the last five years, we obviously need some changes. 

You think that our actual roster can do better without Babs?!?!
I agree that we need changes... but ROSTER changes.

#2606795 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by kickazz on 08 May 2015 - 05:29 PM

We have a ton of leadership in the locker room that goes a long way, I don't see too much changing. Losing Babs will be a transition but not like what your making it out to be. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Losing babs for say someone other than Blashill could actually bring a whole different change. Coaching style is an important aspect in this league. If we end up with the likes of Tortorella (just an example), that could dramatically change the locker room and on-ice work ethic and discipline. 


Our best bet is Blashill because he's been groomed to work in the same system as Babs. I still think Babs is the best option. Except of course the options are his to take not the Wings. 


The point is, there will definitely be a change in atmosphere with a new coach. Good or bad, who knows. But a coaching change does have an big impact. Especially in this league.
