What a great consolation prize...

Way.. way more than he's worth.

How much longer? As long as the streak continues, that's how long.

 

Meh...  I'm not interested in keeping a playoff streak alive when we get beat out in the first or second round every year.   I am however interested in keeping a playoff streak alive when we're actually Stanley Cup contenders.  Hell... look at Pittsburgh firing their GM and Coach.   Not saying that's what I want to do... but at some point you have to demand better.

What the hell is Holland doing?

 

Screwing himself.   Probably in more ways than one.

 

I can't see how much longer Ilitch is going to be willing to watch us sit idle during free agency when we have glaring holes on the back end.

I can't believe some people are crying to fire Babcock... the best coach in hockey.  Unreal.  Seriously people, take off the homer glasses here, think clearly and realistically.  This team that we have, has no chance against Boston.  Not because of coaching, because of talent.  Boston is stronger, bigger, more talented in every area.  From net, to defensemen, to their forwards.  Add in the fact that Datsyuk clearly is struggling with his injury still, and Zetterberg as well, then combine the fact that the rest of the roster is full of guys who played in the AHL last year, and you should easily be able to see what the problem is here.  It's not the coach.  It's an inexperienced roster, filled with injuries up against the team that is probably going to win the cup.

 

Lets be serious here rather than trying to point the blame at Babcock, or even Holland for that matter... If it wasnt for all these kids currently playing on the Wings that were drafted... we wouldn't even be in the damn playoffs today.  The fact that we even are is a miracle on its own the way this season went, without a guy like Babcock behind the bench steering those kids adn getting the best out of them down the stretch, you could shoot a cannon through this forum right now it would be so empty.

It's amazing how completely useless Franzen is.  Just amazing.
