In Topic: Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

18 May 2015 - 02:02 PM

I'm actually kind of torn at this point. I'm also tired of seeing some of the line combinations and the way some players are being used under Babcock. At the same time, it's hard to deny that he's got a way to get more out of his players than you'd expect.

I'm leaning toward a fresh approach with this team, but I'm not going to be ticked if Babcock re-signs.

His dad was an NHL player so that means he's better than other prospects.
Can we please not call him Dylark. It sounds stupid.


If people stop calling him Dylark, we can't pose the following question:

"Who are the five best prospects of all time? Think about it. Dylark. Dylark. Dylark, Dylark, Dylark. Because he spits hot fire."

I don't think it's something we can afford to lose. (Also, I'm sure someone else has made this observation. Full credit to Dave Chappelle... then you.)

I wouldn't mind Stafford, but I'd look into Joel Ward, too. Winnipeg has plenty of cap space and Stafford seems to be a good fit there.

Depending on where Washington's priorities lie, they might elect to let Ward move on. If they do, I'd like the Wings to look at him - he's been pretty solid in the playoffs. They've got about four NHL defenders signed - Carlson, Alzner, Orpik and Niskanen. They have to lock up Holtby, Johansson, Kuznetsov and probably one of Green/Ward.

The defensive pairings are just my guess right now, I'm guessing that Kindl would go in since he has more experience. 


I agree, but I think we might see Kindl-Ericsson, instead. Babcock's gone with that pairing before during the season and it leaves the other two pairings intact.

If we don't find a way to get rid of Weiss, I have a feeling hell be the guy that pulks beats out for the job.
Iirc teemu is out of options next year, so I imagine it'll be like the Tatar situation at the beginning of last year...
The differences being we don't have as much dead weight for him to replaced, and teemu probably won't be anywhere near as productive as tats was.


I agree. That way that Babs views Weiss, I think it's Pulks' job to lose. Like you said, though, he won't be as productive as Tatar when jumping into the lineup. I think this summer will be huge for Pulkkinen. Needs to add some strength and refine certain parts of his game. Raw skills are there, for sure.
