In Topic: It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

20 May 2015 - 11:14 PM

I saw this coming since the last offseason when he didn't sign the extension. You don't not get it done if you're interested in going elsewhere. Toronto will be better. He will sit people down and give the hard workers a chance. They won't win much, because I honestly don't even know who their goalie is, but they won't be a joke. The time for a fresh approach is here. Blashill makes the most sense because he's been handling the junior wings for a while. And since the theme is bringing in the cultivated talent if they can't sign the top available talent, bringing in the young coach with them seems logical. The next season will tell if this is the right approach. They shouldn't be worse. Only get better. The D has a hole and the forwards have 2 holes, a guy down the middle and a right handed wing. We can blame one of those on holland for sticking with Franzen instead of hossa. But he obviously couldn't talk praise and sutter into the deal. They were dead set on their home town. Not his fault. There hasn't been quality talent available since then. So they have had to rely on being all in on the prospect pool. If blashill can get the right approach with these guys and conquer the NHL learning curve then I can see a few good runs coming up. Seeya babs, your set ways won't be missed.

None of the other pictures I googled were appropriate.

That's actually an awesome strip club.

I still can't believe they let that jackass punch Z in the head. You can tell it really affected him. Again this year injuries derail this team. This time it was to the goalie, the captain and abdelkader, who was playing awesome until that hand injury. Franzen was even playing good hockey, and our trade assets both not in this game. I'm sure datsyuk was broken too, his knees are about done like yzerman and chelios.

Babcock is done. This team needs a shake up. He doesn't seem to have it anymore. Wings will promote the Griffins coach to get these guys to play as well for him as they did for the Griffins. Time to trade some peeps and get some D. This offseason, if nothing big happens, nothing big will happen and they will continue with barely making the playoffs and losing handily.

And as a female hockey fan, I take offense to it.

Hopefully you're used to being offended. Because that kindof insult will never go away.
