Sharp with an empty net goal at 6:11 in the 1st period.

C'mon boys, tie it up and win this.  You cannot lose to the Van farm team!

 

 

Damn .. it's over.  Too bad for Blash that he can't go out a Cup winner.

Do we still promote Blashill if he loses Calder Cup?  




#2609694 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

OK ... I think it's been over analyzed.  Who the hell cares anymore where Mrs. Babcock and the kids wants to live and how big of a factor it was in deciding.   Ready to lock this thread up and move on.  I doubt anyone can add anything insightful to the fact that Babcock has chosen the Leafs.

Here's the tearful final presser

 I bet Buffalo will send some reporters to the Detroit Red Wings presser.

Buffalo should hire Guy Boucher ... rumour has it that he was next in line after Babcock.  That should light a competitive fire under Boucher's butt and a real rivalry between the Buff and Toronto.

Bit of a shocker, all along it was Det and Buff ... now this morning, Det and Buff are out and it is Leafs, Blues, or Sharks ??!!

 

Out of those 3, I think Blues would be his best option if he truly wants to win now.  Shocked that Toronto is still in the mix.  




#2608635 Question for the Board regarding Babcock

Posted by RedWingsRox on 19 May 2015 - 05:27 PM

Did we really need 2 threads on Babcock?  Isn't one enough?

Great news ... please accept Buffalo's offer.  Let's move on already, next man up ... congratulations Blashill.  




#2608562 Question for the Board regarding Babcock

Posted by RedWingsRox on 19 May 2015 - 12:37 PM

Personally, if I was Holland, no.  $3.25 for 4 years is a significant raise and very fair for his performance, how many Cups again did Babcock bring us?   This offers him and other coaches a reasonable increase in level of pay.  Doubling it in one move is a bit unreasonable.  If Babs makes $5, how much should Q and Sutter make, both have 2 Cups in the last 5 years?  

 

Would not let Babs use Buffalo as the gauge of salary.  I'd support Holland and Mr. I if they let him walk.

Toronto Star reports "Babcock is leaning towards re-signing with the Detroit Red Wings on a short-term basis, a source told the Star."

 

http://www.thestar.c...head-coach.html

If the report is true ... sorry but no.  Don't cater to that condition ... let him go now.  No way to a 1 year or 2 year deal and we do this all over again ... what, when Pittsburgh wants to dance and we lose Blashill  ... no way.  Bye, good luck in Buffalo or Toronto.  

 

Blashill, congratulations, you're the new head coach of the Detroit Red Wings for the next 4 years, grow with it, we'll be patient.

Agree ... please take the $5M from Buffalo and enjoy coffee with Rex Ryan.

he is gone. when he starts asking other teams, it says a lot. he could also sit out a year, not like he needs the money. There have been Babs to U of M rumors for a couple of years as well. 

Yah but of all teams, SJ ?? What do they have that the Wings don't have other than summer weather all year round?  Their 2 stars are aging as well.  If McLellan can't get more out of them, then I don't think Babcock can do much more.  Babcock cannot put on goalie pads and play for the Sharks.  

 

I honestly think they are further away from SC than Detroit and that joke of a GM, he wants to trade Wilson for Holland?

Just heard part of it on the radio and pierre lebrun said the fact that there interviewing together maybe shows he's coming back? Who knows


I do find it weird that there interviewing together about him possibly leaving? Hope he goes

 

The Decision?
