#2648093 Congrats, Joel

This is a serious accomplishment. Babcock this, Babcock that. Blah blah blah. Meanwhile, this guy is simply winning. Will be interesting to see if he can rack up the extra 500 wins he needs to pass Scotty.

Hell of a play by Larkin and a snipe and a half by Danny D. Certainly did not foresee a comeback so way to go boys.

Imagine how much this season would suck if Dylan Larkin hadn't made the roster.

Still stunned that Marchand wasn't called for a blatant slash on the Krug goal. 


Still stunned that we are this bad.

Calgary sucks. Carolina sucks.


There is no excuse to lose to these s**t-ass teams.

Absolutely beyond unacceptable to be losing to these garbage teams.


The Vancouver game was supposed to have been a springboard. What the f**k happened?

Babs looks pissed Cleary is playing for the Wings and not the Maple Leafs.

#2615458 LGW Moderator Problems

Posted by Jedi on 20 June 2015 - 10:26 AM

We've confirmed that the recent influx of spammers are actual people, not spambots or anything like that. As such, there may not be much we can do to prevent the occasional attack.

We have tools that make cleaning up these attacks extremely easy (one click on their profile and they're banned, content removed and ip-blocked). But unfortunately we can't use these tools until the spam posts are brought to our attention. That's where we need members to use the "report post" tool.

When a post is reported, the system sends an email to each of the boards moderators and Admin. That way we get notified, even if we're not on the boards.

One thing though, most of these spammers tend to attack the boards in the very late/early hours, when most people are asleep. LGW mods are just like everyone else, we have jobs and responsibilities that make it hard to be online at the time these spammers hit. So please understand that we will take care of the attacker as soon as we can, but it may be several hours before a mod can be online.

#2608824 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Get tons of money and you get to take every Spring off. Who can blame him.

If he wins in Toronto he'll be a god, if not he'll at least be paid like one. Plus I'm sure he'll have more power in the organization, then he's got in Detroit.


I get that, however they couldn't win spending like Detroit why will things change now? Players already don't want to go to Toronto, and they weren't lining up to play in Detroit because Babcock was here either.

#2608637 Report: Oilers hire McLellan

Posted by Mckinley25 on 19 May 2015 - 06:06 PM

This is kind of ancient in today's terms of social media but no threads on this ... because we are all in a frenzy about Babwatch.
Anyhow, as you all know by now, Oilers announced hiring of McLellan.  Great choice, classy coach.  Oilers will be a force to be wreckoned with in 2-3 years.  Anyone know the dollars and terms?  
P.S. Oilers didn't even request official permission to talk to Babcock.  

Maybe they didn't want to spend 5 million when they could get the same thing for 2.

Posted by kipwinger on 19 May 2015 - 12:40 PM

If true, fine by me ... in the end, he wasn't as sought after as he or most people thought.  Toronto, Buffalo, Det were the only true options.  Nothing from Pittsburgh, SJ, Edmonton, St. Louis ... 


Guess he's not even close to the 'best coach in the NHL period'.


It pains me to defend Mike Babcock.  Everybody knows that I think he's an overrated, blowhard, whose folksy Canadian "awww shucks, we need to work harder, and listen to our wives more" crap is just a veneer. 


That said, he's definitely one of the top coaches in the league.  He's just not soooo much better that teams who already have good coaches (or coaching options) are willing to drop everything and throw the bank at him.  There are a couple of coaches who are probably better, and a hand full that are as good.  Any team without a coach, or with a consistently underwhelming coach should be happy to have him.  But any team that already has a quality guy would be dumb to can them for Babs.  And for some reason that was what everybody expected.  Also, the fact that there are at least 3 or 4 other really good coaches available really diminished the interest in Babs.  Why throw 5 million at him when you can get McLellan or Bylsma for cheaper and they're not much (or any) worse than he is. 




If the whole process disgusts you so much, why follow it so closely?  It's like repeatedly drinking spoiled milk.


I follow hockey because I love the sport.  I'd really love to follow the Stanley Cup playoffs, since those are still going on and all.  Unfortunately every single outlet dedicated to covering the sport of hockey, is currently following #Babswatch.  So I'm forced to either quit following the sport I love, or follow it and comment on how idiotic this whole decision making process has been.  I've chosen the latter.  What else am I going to do, watch the NBA?  Lol.
