The wings were very lucky tonight. This was one of the worst efforts ever. Babcock has no clue how to get these players untracked. I know a lot of you love him with his 2 gold medals, but seriously, he can't teach them how to set up a power play. Even Legwand has become invisible under Babcock's system. Why was Pulkinen not used in any one of those 4 on 3 power plays? Babcock just does not have a handle on his team. Over the years, many teams have had lesser than star quality players but they were able to play organized, efficient hockey. Not so with Babcock. Completely disorganized. Make a trade - Babcock for Ted Nolan, or Lindy Ruff or Hitchcock.

Babcock needs new ideas. He's supposed to be a teacher of young players. This team is uninspired. Good preparation, coaches.

I think between Tatar, Nyqvuist, Sheahan, and Jurco, the Wings' organization should have enough evidence to loosen the leash a bit on our prospects. I fully understand starting Pulkinen on the fourth because we frankly know nothing about his NHL game, but if he is demonstrating solid play in the first period on the fourth line, Babs needs to be ready to shuffle him up and see what happens.


I disagree that Pulkinen should be on the 4 th line. Put him itch Tatar and Sheahan. My biggest complaint about Babcock is his inability to put proper players together. If Pulkinen is on the 4th line, it explains one of the reasons why the Wings are in the mess they're in.

In Topic: Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

I like this trade. Jarnkrok may develop in to a great player, but before the deadline I wanted make sure that come March 6th we still had Tatar, Nyquist, Jurco, Sproul, Oullet, Mrazek, Mantha, Pullkinnen... I prefer these guys so it's not like we sold the family china. Eaves wasn't back in the summer, so effectively a pick and a prospect for a proven centre isn't a high price.

I do not like this trade. It smacks of complete desperation. For what - a chance of getting into the playoffs, as slim as that may seem. Jarnkrok was still the best chance of a better than average centre for years to come. Dats and Z's years are numbered. Z may not even return and if he does, will he be the same? All things considered, dumb trade.

The last time mule had a great game in Ottawa, his scoring dried up worse than the California drought. Hopefully, this time around, he continues the charge and takes seriously his responsibilities. He must continue to lead and work.
