#2609684 Babcock says good-bye in full page ad. SIAP

One comment Babcock made with a smile: "My decision to leave is my decision. My wife wanted me to make that clear; it's not on her."

 

 

I was glad he said that.  I know he said it originally as a joke but the whole thing about "his wife being the boss" irked me.  

 

Take responsibility for your decision.  Even if it is your wife saying no way in hell I'm going to Buffalo, you still say it was your decision and not put it on her.

@reporterchris: The #TBLightning are dealing with a flu bug. Says Jon Cooper: "This extra day of rest is going to be good for us."

Does he ever stop whining or making excuses? f*** that guy.

#2610409 At what point does the GM deserve credit/blame?

Posted by Nightfall on Yesterday, 02:35 PM

No worries :) I just remember hearing announcers mention that he was undrafted sometime this post season so I looked into it. Good find on yzermans part.

 

Both him and Palat were great finds.  Palat was a late round selection (208 overall)




#2610401 At what point does the GM deserve credit/blame?

Posted by Nightfall on Yesterday, 01:21 PM

 

Johnson was undrafted. and was signed as a free agent by tampa bay in 2011... after Yzerman took over. 

 

My bad on that.  I was thinking Johnson but it was Hedman I was thinking about.  He was drafted in 2009.




#2610387 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

The game came easy to Mantha in the Q. He has to earn it in the AHL. Let's hope Larkin's work ethic will rub off on him.


#2610376 All Purpose Grand Rapids Griffins Thread

Posted by krsmith17 on Yesterday, 09:56 AM

I honestly wouldn't be at all surprised if the Griffins win 4 straight, taking the series in 5. I think we're much deeper up front (GRG - 3.5 GF/G vs UTI - 2.2 GF/G) and better on the back end as well, but we lose in the goaltending battle (GRG - 2.9 GA/G, UTI - 2.2 GA/G). We have much better special teams (GRG - 25%PP, UTI - 14.8%PP / GRG - 84.1%PK, UTI - 77.2%PK). Markstrom is the better goalie, but since those first two goals against McCollum, he has looked very solid. They finished 3 points ahead in the regular season but with the additions of Larkin and Bertuzzi, I think that puts us over the top.

I'm honestly more upset about Hiller (our powerplay coach from last season) leaving more than Babcock leaving. Our powerplay was great last season, hopefully it stays the same.


#2610026 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by krsmith17 on 25 May 2015 - 10:20 AM

I don't get why you would think that Glendening would "follow Babs"... He's under contract with the Detroit Red Wings. He can't just decide to pack up his gear and move to Toronto, nor would he even if he could. There has been a lot of joking about trading Glendening to Toronto for Kessel or a 1st round pick or whatever because of how much Babcock loves him but he isn't going anywhere. I'm sure Holland and Blashill appreciate Glendening's game just as much as Babcock. He's here to stay and for good reason, he's a great 4th line shut down center.

Larkin scores his first two as a pro

 

Griffins won, 4-2. Larkin scored the first two Griffins goals, Pulkkinen scored the game-winner, and Bertuzzi scored the insurance goal. Series is now tied at one. Next three games are in Grand Rapids.

They used the happiest picture of him that they could find :P

 

That picture was taken during the birth of his first child.

#2609365 Report: Oilers hire McLellan

Posted by frankgrimes on 21 May 2015 - 11:34 AM

I'm happy for him and he basically confirmed what everyone knew oilers are going to pick McDavid . Man that franchise is the huge winner this year. So happy for Todd I think he is a great guy and will do very well there
