#2563909 Nashville has yet to lose 2 games in a row this season

Posted by RedWingsRox on 17 January 2015 - 03:45 PM

He was never hired mid-season to clean up a mess and get a fringe team solidly into the playoffs.

Yah, that seems to be the criteria for winning it ... or some coach for the first time who gets lucky.  Roy, MacLean ... I mean seriously, MacLean gets one before Babcock?  The body of work through the years is not a factor they take into consideration.  

 

Let's see how the most recent winners are doing:

Roy - 2nd year coaching, team in 10th place

MacLean - fired, unemployed  

Hitch - pretty steady

Bylsma - let go, unemployed

Tippet - probably going to be looking for a new job soon 

Julien, Boudreau, Vigneault - doing well.

Lindy Ruff in Dallas - strugglig a bit there

Tortorella - :lol:  :lol:  

 

At this rate, they might hand it to Capuano in NYI this year.

Yes, the murders in Paris were tragic and terrible ...  and should be condemned.  

 

Freedom of speech is to be valued and fought for however, to repeatedly use it to mock a religion's sacred leader is disrespectful and classless.  With freedom comes responsibilities.  

 

Every right implies a responsibility; Every opportunity, an obligation, Every possession, a duty.

Unspoken but players know how to get their coach fired ... just play half arsed for a month, go on losing streak, bingo.

Just heard announcer at end of Det - Edm game say that Nash and Det are the only 2 teams that have not lost 2 in a row in regulation time.  Was kind of surprised to hear that.




#2561098 1/6 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Edmonton Oilers 2

I will seriously need to get sized for a paper bag if the Wings lose to the Oilers tonight.  This is friggin embarassing.  




#2560922 Randy Carlyle relieved of his duties by Leafs

Posted by RedWingsRox on 06 January 2015 - 02:28 PM

If we lose to Edm tonight, give the Leafs what they want, Babcock .... and as compensation, Bozak and Franson and a 2nd round pick.  

 

Blashill is ready

Yah, really impressed with Preds and the job that Laviolette is doing.  Surprised to be honest.  Barry Trotz on the other hand is having a bit of a harder time with Princess Ovi.

Thank you for not ruining New Year's Eve !




#2559389 12/27 GDT: Red Wings 3 @ Senators 2 (OT)

Posted by RedWingsRox on 27 December 2014 - 09:49 PM

Unbelievable ... that has to make it to one of the Top 10 goals of this season. 




#2557026 12/16 GDT : Blue Jackets 1 at Red Wings 0 (SO)

Posted by RedWingsRox on 16 December 2014 - 03:43 AM

We moved to #1 in the Atlantic last night without having to suit up.  Now let's get 2 pts and really put some separation between us and Tampa.  




#2556373 12/12 GDT : Panthers 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by RedWingsRox on 13 December 2014 - 02:01 AM

Maybe Babcock should send Howard, in full goalie gear with his goalie stick, as the first shooter. At least it would make Howard stop thinking about the next shooter.

 

Possible ... if this guy can, so can Howie: 

 




#2556329 12/12 GDT : Panthers 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Babcock should send out Kronwall, Quincey, and Ericsson just to make a statement to the forwards ... and put in Mrazek




#2555278 Matt Martin hit on Keith Ballard.. DIRTY

Posted by RedWingsRox on 10 December 2014 - 05:34 PM

Ballard has put a few people out over his career ... Perry as of late.  What goes around comes around, I guess.  




#2554487 12/7 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Hurricanes 1

Posted by RedWingsRox on 07 December 2014 - 01:37 AM

Let's not play down to Hurricanes, I know it's back to back but let's get these easy 2 pts.
