Smith does it again.

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.

I think both teams were excellent. There wasn't much difference between the two teams. Every player worked their tails off. Desperation and suspense at its finest. Emotionally, I felt that this was the gold medal game because of the rivalry and they both play the North American game. Congratulations to BOTH teams.

I can't believe that the coaching staff refuses to change their power play system. It is outrageously bad. The players are rarely in a position along the boards where they can shoot at the net without getting blocked. I don't know which coach is in charge of this, but he needs to be replaced.

Time for a trade. There are probably 5 players that could be bundled for some draft picks. Of course Detroit would have to pay part of their salaries to help convince the other team to take them.


#2457703 Babcock's system

Posted by Fonzarelli on 24 November 2013 - 03:35 PM

The wings have had trouble scoring for a couple of seasons, either straight up or on the pp. Some key personnel have left yet Babcock is trying to use the same system as if Stevie Y was still there. The players he has now cannot play this particular system. I remember when Rafalski played in the Olympics and played in a system where he excelled. Then he came back to the Wings and wasn' t the same. What system needs to be applied to get this team on the right track? Which coach would bring this system to Detroit? Right now, it's not Babcock.

And the refs f*** US IN THE ASS AGAIN.


Abdelkader must be in control. He deserves a $ 25000 fine for being stupid and causing the tying goal. No excuse as far as I'm concerned.

Many don't see how much Franzen is a key for us IF he is scoring goals. You need a way to find a solution for his lack of production, not just demotion. Not saying they haven't been trying that but a unproducing Mule is a worse off redwings squad...I am not a very big fan of him personally, but he can be so effective when he is producing, scary sometimes. You should want success from Detroit more then watching a mule k down.

I agree but the ass, I mean mule, doesn't even shoot. He's not even doing what he's told to do. He's supposed to go to the front of the net. How many times have you seen him park himself there?

I think Smith will be a good defenceman, just not now. With him on the ice, Chicago has a man advantage.

Wings passing is atrocious. Hope they can improve with their pp

Ohalloran is the kiss of death for the wings. First impression - wings too uptight. Passing is ugly.

It looks like Smith's penalty took the wind out of the wings sails. When he came on the ice after the penalty, he created more havoc. He's got a lot to learn.

I just hate how Detroit plays with a lead.

The wings must keep their attack mode. If they sit back, we'll, we know what happens. Stay out of the box.

Filpulla just killed his contract demands. He may have sent himself packing.
