Holland to Nyquist: "You sunk my battleship..."

Can't wait to see Weiss and Alfie in for Cleary and Sammy.

I think Holland will have to learn from this season that he can't sign guys like Q who are not top talent to any more than 1 year deals. If XO, Sproul, and Backman develop any more we will have another nyquist situation on our hands with no place in the D for them to play.

THIS. End thread.

At least babs changes things up when they are going poorly - holland just rolls with the same stale roster as always. 




#2455901 Respect Babcock and Holland

Posted by dirtydangles on 20 November 2013 - 10:01 PM

We may have a good farm, but we don't have a Datsyuk, Zetterberg or Lidstrom in the prospect system. I think our D could be great in 5 years, I'm worried though about our forwards.

This. In 3 years we won't have the firepower to be a contender. We will look a lot like Nashville at this rate. Surefire D prospects in Sproul, Backman, XO (could argue a few others), along with Current Dmen will make our D insanely good. Unless Jarnkrok and Sheahan both become top 6 centres we are screwed. We desperately need a sure-thing at centre in our prospect system. 3 years from now Dats is gone and Z is on the wrong side of 35. If I were Holland I would think long and hard about trading up this or the next draft to try to draft a future top line centre - if that means moving some of our good D prospects then so be it because we have enough.

Mantha looks a lot like Franzen out there. Doesn't look too interested. Took a dumb penalty too.

In fairness to Babcock, he's had everyone play with everyone else and it doesn't work.  If he wants to get another line going, he really doesn't have much of a choice other than splitting up the Euro Twins.

Babs doesn't realize that this strategy only works short term. He thinks that if a line scores a goal they should stick together but sometimes its just the other teamf****** up and not chemistry. Realistically he needs to leave the lines ALONE and let people get comfortable rather than mixing and matching all day. Players should be put where they belong - AKA cleary should be nowhere in the top 6 ever again.

It blows my mind to imagine how much better this team would be with Nyquist and Brunner over Sammy, Cleary, Tootoo

I'd LOVE to see a "WE WANT NYQUIST" chant at the Joe to go along with the Boos. Holland needs to hear that this is unacceptable.

There will be a segment where holland sits at his computer and scrolls through players on the trade market saying "too expensive...not soft enough...scores too many goals..."

What is with this fascination to have Alfie as a Dman? Makes no sense. Following the logic of "he is a vet player with good d instincts" we should have Datsyuk and Z back there too. Being a Dman is a lot about positioning around the net and using your body effectively (things alfie hasn't had to do in his extensive career). He would get destroyed back there.
