This kid is going to decide whether Babs stay or not ........ supposedly.




#2607559 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by RedWingsRox on 13 May 2015 - 05:26 PM

I think this would be an interesting twist if Chiarelli doesn't drink the Babcock $5m/yr for 5 year koolaid and he doesn't request permission to interview Babcock and  just go with McLellan instead.  (Not a bad call on McLellan, solid coach for less)  Imagine what that might do to Babs ego ... so no Crosby to coach, no McDavid ... you really want to go to Buffalo or the dysfunctional Leafs.   

 

That's what is coming out of Edmonton ... I love it!  Sorry Mikey, no McConnor for you.

#2606759 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

St. Louis seems a tempting location for him, if they clear out Hitch in time.  Stillman has no issue with putting the money in for his Blues.  The media is rather easy in St. Louis and team is loaded with talent, but is in desperate need of a culture change.  Babcock with a move or two could make a strong regular season team into a much deadlier playoff team.

Why change one 'cock' with another one?  ... sorry couldn't resist.  

 

Hitch is a good friend of Babs, I wonder if that has any bearing on it, knowing that if you say yes, your friend will be unemployed.  Don't know if Hitch's job is secure or on thin ice but yah, St. Louis is way too much talent to be one and done.  They need goalie but that's a problem that a coach cannot rectify or solve.

Does anyone really care what Devellano thinks?  




#2605122 Who is the coach next season?

The drama unfolds, in round 1 next year, Detroit meets the team that Babs goes to and Wings advance to round 2 in 7 .. something that he couldn't do when he was here.  Circle of life.  Called it here on Apr 30, 2015.

So before June 30th, we can get a 3rd round pick or something from a team if they want permission to speak to Babs?  

 

What is Jamie McLellan smoking ... he thinks San Jose is a good destination ... with that GM Doug Wilson ??!!

We need a coach who will take the team to church on Sundays.  




#2604851 Who is the coach next season?

Not McLean .. McLellan before the Walrus, he'd be afraid of who we're playing ... and scared of who to play.

Babcock post-game, "Well, it's a race to 4 and they got there first.  We competed, we played hard, that's hockey sometimes."  

:lol:

 

Spot on!

 

I write his post game speeches for him.  Just txt'd it to him.

31 SOG vs. 17 SOG ... and we lost.  One of those nights.  Imagine if we had Kronwall.

Lots of time, stay calm and cool.  One goal at a time.  




#2603011 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by RedWingsRox on 28 April 2015 - 11:10 PM

I hope that this gets the team so pissed that they'll play out of their mind and demolish TB ... channel the anger and Wings will win.

Cooper didn't call the Wings cheaters on that Kronwall hit?  




#2601279 WCQF : (6) Minnesota Wild vs. (2) St. Louis Blues

Posted by RedWingsRox on 26 April 2015 - 06:49 PM

I am really impressed with how Mike Yeo has turned the Wild around. I did not believe they had it in them to even make the playoff this season given how buried they were in the standings at one point.

 Yeo is a hellu lucky guy ... landed on the 2nd coming of Dubnyk.

 

Remember he had that meltdown expletive filled video of dumping on his players?  He was losing it and if the team continued in that trend, Yeo would have been fired.
