I don't get why so many people were going for the Habs last night?.. So short sighted in my opinion, I'd prefer to look at the bigger picture.
With the Habs winning in regulation it put them six points ahead of us and the Leafs just one point ahead of us with two games in hand on both. So, yes it made it much easier to pass one team but we could potential pass both teams and lock up a top three spot in the division.
If the Leafs had won in regulation it would have put them three points ahead of us and the Habs four points ahead of us with two games in hand on both. Both teams would be within reach, we would just have to continue playing well, which I believe we will.
Even if we pass Toronto we are still in a wild card spot, I would much prefer be in a fight for one of those guaranteed top three spots. Just my opinion....
Baby steps. We just want to get in and get healthy, after that I think we have a dangerous team to take on anyone.
Reimer is terrible. The Leafs look like the most vulnerable team around the Red Wings right now.
Leafs look like the most vulnerable because it's the same tune that happened in Anaheim. Carlyle looks to have lost the team, and after his comments about Reimer and the feud between him and Kadri the lockerroom is a mess.
Which is exactly why I said a nomination. The 2nd part of your statement is some weird attempt at questioning the coaching staff I take it? I'm confused.
Don't think that's what he/she meant, it was taken in different context.
I read it as the Wings have been so successful in the last 20 years they won't win it based upon that. If the Wings bottomed out for 3 years and went on to make the playoffs then Babcock would probably win it.
