I dont see what's wrong with being excited about having a new coach. I think the youngsters will show some more creativity offensively, something that has been severely lacking on this team. Of course their is going to be some growing pains going with a coach with zero NHL experience, but if Babcock is still the best coach in the NHL after only winning two playoff series since 09 then Blashill can't be considered a failure if he doesn't get us to the second round
So is Number9 trolling or what? Seems like since Babs left you've changed to SimonSin levels of doom and gloom
SimonSin is the master of doom n gloom, I still have much to learn of his ways.
No, I'm really not. I think it's alarming how happy people are that the best coach in the game jumped ship and is being replaced by an inexperienced question mark.
It'd be like if Datsyuk left for Russia tomorrow, and we decided to replace him in the lineup next season with Mantha. Giving Mantha matching playing time, on the top line, etc, etc. Sure Mantha could be really good in that spot next season, but he could also be really bad, or maybe just mediocre. At the end of the day it's probably just be better to hold onto Datsyuk.
"But Mantha knows the players!" Gimme a break
Let's face it, we got stuck with plan B.
Plan A > Plan B
