This whole thing is just insane. Babs is just bracing Jurco and Kindl for next year, when a) Jurco is back in GRs and b) Kindl is on the 2nd pairing.  :w00t:

The only thing that I can think of is that the man we know as "Mike Babcock" is actually a performance artist named Skye Rainwater who got his liberal arts degree from UC Berkley.  For years Skye had toyed with the theory that the American public was getting slower, duller, and more obtuse by the second.  It's not hard to imagine someone from UC Berkley holding such an opinion.  Eventually, Skye found an opportunity to prove his theory when Gary Bettman cruelly tricked Marian Illitch into biting into an apple from the tree of knowledge, thus forcing the organizations' decision makers out of their pre-2005 enlightenment and into the dark age of "parity" and "Mike Babcock". 

 

Ever since that fateful day, Red Wings fans have been the subject of hockey's biggest social experiment.  The man we know as Mike Babcock (aka Skye Rainwater) does the dumbest s*** possible all the time...yet cleverly misdirects scrutiny by consistently uttering meaningless platitudes such as tonight's postgame "You shouldn’t give up easy access to your blue line" and "The second thing is we got to have a better plan and execution on our power play". 

 

Convinced that nobody will notice, his idiotic decision making and meaningless gibberish will continue until one day the Messiah will return, flanked by the Mahdi, and Dale Earnhardt (R.I.P) to vanquish the serpent (Bettman), send Skye Rainwater back to bowels of California, and promote Jeff Blashill to coach the Detroit Red Wings.

 

Blashill's first act as newly appointed head coach, and survivor of the fight between good and evil... 

 

REUNITING THE f****** FRANZEN-LEGWAND-AND NYQUIST LINE!

If you've got an analytical mind and you really want to piss yourself off, mosey on over to the box score and have a look at the ice times for various Red Wings.  Here's a couple fun things that stand out...

 

1.  Jurco and Legwand nearly had as little 5-on-5 ice time as Shawn Thornton:  If these two didn't run a train on Bab's wife to get in his doghouse, they probably should now so they'll at least deserve the punishment. 

 

2.  Andersson, 8:17 seconds:  If you aren't going to play him why call him up?  Surely Bertuzzi is better than Andersson for 8 minutes a night.  

 

3.  Kindl, 18:02:  Lol. 

 

4. Legwand, 15 shifts:  2 more than Jordan Caron, Boston's worst player.  7 fewer than Brian Lashoff, our worst player.

With their back up goalie in net.  

 

My point is that if we score at the pace of either of the teams in that series we're probably up 2-1 right now.

So much denial here. Howard didn't kill the Wings' chance to win tonight. From the opening faceoff, the Wings never gave themselves a chance.

 

When you score 2 goals in 3 games and you *aren't* facing elimination in game 4, there's a good chance that your goalie is your series MVP. Not because he's necessarily been lights out, but because everyone has been worse.

 

And even then, it's not enough. Apparently, there's widespread belief that Howard has to keep track of when his teammates are having, ahh, that time of month. He has to wear the pants on the team.

 

Okie dokie. 

 

It's unbelievable that people think the team that's showed up for the first 3 games could legitimately compete for the cup, but for Howard. Whatever makes the loss easier to take, I guess. It's probably better than booze.

 

Kudos.  Tampa Bay scored ten goals in four games and they're on a long, lonely, quiet flight out of Montreal right about now.

Can Alfredsson shoot the puck at Lucic's head like he did Niedermayer in the Finals?

 

Not from the training room.
