#2291775 Time to start looking for a new coaching staff

Posted by atodaso on 17 April 2012 - 10:43 PM

It's pretty obvious Scotty Bowman needs to be associated with this team in some way if they are going to be champions again.

To anyone saying we should trade Filppula in the offseason: You aref****** retarded and should keep your opinions about the game of hockey to yourselves.

So that makes it ok? Wow you have a diluted way of looking at this game...

So was what Bert did to Moore ok, cause he didnt hit him that hard?


That whole incident was only about 5% Bertuzzi's fault.

Well, this quote from Mike Babcock makes me feel good about this team:

Now this thing about how we're fading away? Well, we'll see about that. We'll find a way to make it happen. I don't know how. I just know we will.

#2280606 Dan Cleary openly admits to being at 50%

Posted by atodaso on 09 April 2012 - 03:53 PM

Is Babcock not watching the games out there? Cleary is just skating around aimlessly and isn't able to help the team. In not doing so, he's hurting it.

Call up some youngster from the minors who will play hungry and try to shine in the playoffs. Kind of like Helm in 2008. It's honestly more the coaching staff's fault than Cleary's. He'll play until he drops, but they have to step in there and realize it's not a good idea.


That's exactly my point. The fact that he's still in the lineup says that either the organization feels Cleary at 50% is still better than someone from GR at 100% or they just don't have any other choice. Conner comes to mind as a replacement but that pretty much tells me that Babcock thinks Cleary is worth more injured than a healthy Conner.

He shouldn't be playing.

Some guys can play at 50% and still help the team. As we've seen all season, Cleary at 50% is not helping the team at all. In fact, he's hurting the team and is rather easy to play against right now.

He needs to sit.


If this really was a fact, he would be sitting.

Says he's going to play... WTF. You're at 50% you fricken moron, you're doing more harm than good!!!! I'm livid.


Right. Because I'm sure it's his call if he plays or not. How selfish of him.


#2280460 Wings recall Chris Conner

Posted by atodaso on 09 April 2012 - 01:56 AM

I believe most were speaking of when Helm returns, which is projected to be Game 2. That would see Abdelkader sliding down to center the 4th line, as one of the above posters showed. Even so, other than taking draws and defending, its hardly inconceivable for a winger to slide to center, especially given the fact that Emmerton plays like an empty sweater, gets caught watching the play in his own zone, and only takes an average of around 3 faceoffs per game.

That said, bringing in Conner is hardly the panacea. I think he'll provide good energy, but should do so on the 4th line. In a perfect world, we would be able to reunite Miller-Helm-Abdelkader, but I do think we need a legit center on all lines (not Emmerton):

Miller-Helm-Cleary
Conner-Abdelkader-Holmstrom


Emmerton takes almost as many face-offs as Filppula. But playing Centre is much more than just taking the face-off and if he was an 'empty sweater' as you say he is, I'm sure Babcock and co. would have noticed it by now. Having said that, if Eaves and Helm weren't injured Emmerton wouldn't be in the lineup. Miller, Helm, Cleary, Abdelkader, Eaves, and Homer as the bottom 6 is not bad, I guess. Stupid salary cap :ranting:

Put Conner in for Emmerton? So, replace a Centreman with a Winger? Posted Image

Conner should have been playing instead of Cleary? :crazy:

Seriously guys, leave the managing and coaching to the people who get paid to do it. If Holland and Babcock listened to this board the Wings would be the Blue Jackets.

Who's hoping SJ wins the Pacific now? Chicago vs. San Jose; one ******-bag team will be knocked out for sure in the first round.

If they can't beat Nashville in a 7 game series, they aren't good enough to win it all. I guess we'll see what this team is made of real soon.
