I don't think it's Babs fault as much as it is Hollands. As a coach you want to make the best decisions working with what you have, so why the same roster that OBVIOUSLY isn't working? Does it take 7 games to realize that the lineups suck? Unfortunately I fear Babs would be the scapegoat and be the first to go in the event it comes to a house cleaning.
What do you mean it's not babs fault? He's the one that plays cleary in stupid situations, the one that scratched Tatar, who sits Tatar in overtime and we obviously get scored on, played Quincey on the second power play unit tonight. Hey babs maybe try out smith on the pp he was only the pp quarterback for the griffins when he was playing well. Babs is doing a terrible job with line combos, special teams lines, and putting young guys in situations to succeed. I for the life of me have never understood why smith has never been give power play time with the big club considering offense is supposed to be the strength of his game
Here's the thing. With Daniel Cleary, you just need to get him to the playoffs. After that, he picks his game up exponentially. He showed that last season.
Ya well I don't care I want players that wanna play every night. He is garbage and was yet another terrible signing by holland. There needs to be a change with both holland and Babcock and it needs to happen now. They are not doing there jobs.
I'm a huge wings fan and absolutely love watching the wings always got so excited to see them and all the skill they possess but they just aren't that anymore. Is it bad that I'm not that excited to see the games anymore and I only get excited when pav and z are on the ice?
I'm actually so ready to fire holland and Babcock. Holland doing an awful job with roster management and babs for playing bums like cleary and Sammy. It would be one thing if we didn't have the players in the system but it's another when a guy like nyquist can't even play cause of that idiot holland.
I really don't think Weiss is playing bad I just think that cleary is so awful that he weighs down both Weiss and alfy. I saw a play tonight where cleary was on the rush and alfy was far wing with nobody in site and cleary dumped it on net. How does an NHL hockey player with time not see that. Hell I would have seen that an. Alfy would have gotten a hell of a chance on that play
