#2608795 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by Rhah on 20 May 2015 - 12:03 PM

 

Though the real lebrun just retweeted this, though I have no idea who he's retweeting or the authenticity of flightaware.

MLSE's private jet is scheduled to head to Detroit later today and depart within three minutes of arrival. http://flightaware.com/photos/view/334911-9a6d812c5b8800b9c0c814927ca8c17bbb374469/aircrafttype/GLF4 

 

 

Heh, fake LeBrun is better at breaking news than LeBrun.




#2608139 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Anyone who doubts what Babs brings to the team... all Squawk Sports Radio talks about is how Quenneville is the master of matchups and OCD about it.

 

I will give you one guess where he learned to take it so seriously (it was in 2013). And he was schooled by the master and should have had one of the biggest disappointment playoff exits in recent times had his team not luckily come back from 3 - 1 series deficit.

 

I just have serious doubts that the next coach up can match the same. I know we backseat drive his game strategy all the time, but there is a reason for things he does and its not just pulling names out of a hat and it works out a lot more often than it fails. Just look again at this year... we should have easily surprised and beat the s*** out of the Blots.

One thing I noticed in thread. Now, I like Blashill and I hate to rag on the Calder cup, because that's all we have had to root for the last couple years. But, to even put the Calder cup in the same conversation as NHL championships, is a bit ridiculous to try and compare Blash to Babcocks resume.

 

And to say that Babcock had a stacked roster when he had success and in the same breath say that Blashill is competing every year in Calder cup and not comment how Grand Rapids is filled with overripe NHL prospects (that we regularly leave in the minors too long) and then a bunch of ringers (NHL level players) get sent back down after we are knocked out of playoffs, is  a bit disingenuous.

 

Also, my last comment about if a replacement is needed. How often is the minor league affiliates head coach looked at before any bench or assistant coaches? (yes he was an asst one year... but not currently). 




#2607704 ECSF : (4) Washington Capitals vs. (1) New York Rangers

That breakdown of the hit is s*** by Kerry Fraser. Every bullet point he puts down to say why hit isn't illegal could be applied to Kronwall's hit which he did say was bad (if I remember correctly).

 

and he absolutely leaves his feet before contact, not on follow through.

Subban threw Johnson down to the ice after a check on the boards in last night's game. Nobody really saw it or commented on it, and the crowd got sort of mad. I enjoyed seeing it.

Today I learned that apparently you have to score points to be considered a top defenseman in the league despite your position name having "defense" right in the title.

I would take zero point #1 shutdown defender in the league anyday over a chuck it at the net goon. Let the offense do the work and put your d guys who have good shots on the PP.

Only redeeming thing about this game is the national crew didn't have Edzo there. He is probably busy fluffing Toews.

Anyone else catch Pasha when he was only guy able to line change onto ice and he follows along behind Killorn or someone on boards being engaged by our D and he starts tapping his stick like he is a TB guy at the point waiting for a one timer. Woulda been even more genius if dude fell for it.

If Tyler Johnson loses helmet at boards then the whistle would have been blown immediately

Notice Mickey is not speaking during the montage of Lightning "borderline" hits. Bet they were afraid he would go off :lol:


Wish I had a Detroit feed. Watching it on NBC

I can only come to two conclusions about league office and DoPS.

 

1. They are either the biggest group of irrational, illogical, and inconsistent Ivory Tower jerks that there ever was.

 

2. Or, they actually don't even watch all the games and rely only on headlines (or interns) to notify them about stuff that is trending and they are basically spineless robots controlled by their marketing office.

Meh Tyler Johnson only one beating the Wings. He single handedly win both games at the Joe.

Posted by Rhah on 27 April 2015 - 04:19 PM

We interfere with players on the rush more then anyone in the league. I've noticed recently that other teams are starting to do it more and more as well. (side note, ive also noticed other teams using the same entry into the zone on the PP as us; the one where we drop it to Dats)

 

You obviously didn't read the linked article and the quoted rule book rule.
