#2515711 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

Posted by brandon27 on 25 April 2014 - 06:38 AM

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.

Nice job by Smith on the 2 on 1, and great job by Kronwall hustling to get back.

Pavel! Just got in from a pit rehearsal to see that beauty!

Gustavsson in? Howard hurt or just because he was weak in games 2 and 3?

 

Flu for Howard...  in the dressing room, half in equipment, getting fluids..

Unreal... they "miss" the two trips of helm, the crosscheck by Marchand to the face of Smith, but then they conveniently call that one on Smith to try and even out the PP time, because you just knew after a 4 minute PP the next call was going to be on us.  It's a damn shame the way they call these games now.

Kindl needs to shoot that ASAP not hold it and wait. Might have gotten another there if he'd have just shot it.

1 Goal in his last 21 games...  Man that's pathetic.  Way to go Franzen.

It all boils down to this: Boston is just better. MUCH better.

 

Exactly.  People need to take the homer glasses off, and set their emotions aside.  This team at this stage in its growth is nowhere near as good as Boston.  Hell, probably half of our lineup tonight started the season in Grand Rapids, and not just started the season there, but likely would have finished it there if its not for all the injuries.  Theyre young...  its called growing pains, we're not used to it because of the steady line of vets we've rolled through here... its a changing of the guard in Detroit...  We're not as good as we like to think, we've been spoiled.  It's going to happen all over again though as these kids get more experience, and size, we're going to be that deadly team again, especially up front.  On the back end, the D really needs help, it needs a solid vet.

Nice win tonight, glad we got the shutout for Mrazek, not that he had alot of work tonight, only 14 shots.  nice work for him to get called up from GR, to edmonton, and put up a 0.  Nicely done.

Crazy thought... How would people feel about a Mrazek for Yakupov trade... Perhaps with some spare parts along for the ride but those two being the key players swapping sides?

 

No thanks.  I wouldn't move Mrazek.  I love Howard right now, but I think Mrazek is the better goaltender long term.

and that question would be "Why oh lord do Kenny and Babs keep coddling our washed up vets?"


same here

 

Well, in a way I get it... we like to play solid, winning hockey.  Young players make mistakes.  Let them learn in the system the right way, our way, and let them ripen.  To do that, you have to hang onto the vets who know the system, you know limit the mistakes.  Young guys are always going to make the mistakes, we want to limit that.  However I agree, at some point in time... you need to move on.  That time is now, actually it was last year IMO for some of these older guys on the roster, and these young guys ready to move it on up, before we loose them.

I just don't get Samuelsson on the point, it doesn't work.

 

Samuelsson on this roster just doesn't work IMO.  I dont see the value that he brings to this team at all.  As much as I dislike Franzen and his laziness... I'd rather see Sammy gone, Franzen in the lineup somewhere deep, and Tatar on the third or second line.
