#2606715 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 08 May 2015 - 11:26 AM

If the best coach in the league agrees to sign with your team during an exclusive negotiating window, and you tell him, 'naw, let's hold off for a month so I don't have to give up a third round draft pick to get you,' dont you think that might make him reconsider his options?

I think we've all suspected Babcock would leave all season, so this isn't a surprise

If he returns I'll be happy, he's a good coach .... Another part of me thinks he's overrated and won't care if he goes either .... I mean when he went to the finals with us twice he had lidstrom and pav and hank in there prime, kronwall etc... And team canada was an all star team ... I do believe canada would of won with another coach

He leaves we get Blashill who might be on the verge of winning 2 calder cups , knows all our kids and prospects coming ... Seems like he may be pro rookies and give them a chance on the team and not make a jurco play a checking role let's say

Blashill or Babs I won't lose any sleep over who our coach is

Then we can all "shock" the hockey world yet again when a rookie coach leads us to the playoffs

U.s.a lost to Belarus and larkin -2

As much as I wanna see larkin athanasiou mantha tearing it up in the nhl maybe it's best for larkin to stay for one more year? He's turning 19 in July , can play one year in the ahl and then nhl hopefully at 21?

You guys think he should go with Grand Rapids next year?

As long as they bring up cups they can celebrate any way they'd like

Still remember game 7 stl in double o.t when yzerman roofed it top corner to win and he's jumping up and down like a mad man

Celebrations can be fun and memorable :)

I'm not sold on stafford ... The way this team gets better is having it's younger players step it up and forget putting pulkkinen on the bottom 6 ... He needs to play top 6 and I'd prefer it personally if he doesn't play the point on the powerplay ... Needs to play closer to get his quick release off

If we could add a legitimate top 6 guy who can score and be physical that would be ideal but I don't see anything great on the market and I don't know if anyone will trade us one without a hight cost

I don't wanna see us trade any of athanasiou mantha larkin holmstrom bertuzzi

And as for the d if we could add a Phaneuf that would be ideal and then I'd wanna see marchenko/ouellet up and see them split the games and then getting some more in when the injuries are bound to happen ... So 50-55 games per?

The kids gotta start getting some games in , or else we'll be really in for it when we have 3-4 rookies in the lineup at the same time ... Jensen will be ready for games as well and I'm still hoping ryan sproul can turn out to be the ppl guy were looking for after 1 more yr in the ahl

He's a free agent after next season, iirc, and some team is going to give him too much money to be ineffective.

What's iirc?

As much of a piecepf s*** people might think lucic is ... Having him in detroit would be huge

#2605673 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 03 May 2015 - 08:52 AM

I'd be really careful about fully trusting Mrazek with the starting job right now.  Not because he hasn't been excellent.  But because our system limits shots to such a degree that it's a little easier for a young guy to come in and play well.  Certainly he had huge games, where he faced a lot of shots and did well, but he also had a lot of games where he didn't face many at all. 
If Babs leaves, and the system becomes less (excruciatingly) defensive, Mrazek will face more shots on average.  And I'd feel more comfortable if we had a veteran like Howard there for insurance.  If the kid plays well, then no sweat.  And if he struggles at first, you're safe.

I'd feel way more comfortable with mrazek facing a ton of shots than howard

#2605469 Free agents this off season

I guarantee the wings make a big trade if Babcock re-signs, I'm sure it will be a stipulation In the contract

Agreed ... I do think it's almost a certainty Phaneuf will end up here ... Grand Rapids win then Babs will travel for game 5 with holland and I'm sure a lot will be said on that trip

Babs also said he got into an argument with his wife ... Can't help but think that had to do with the mention of Edmonton (reminds me of pronger and his wife lol)

Seriously doubt his wife will give the okay to go to Edmonton and spend -40 days over there ... I'd say there's no way he goes there

Only teams I'd see Babs leaving us for would be a San Jose/Pittsburgh/saint louis type situation

And that's why Joel ward should be our number 1 target kids

Can't help but wonder now if we had traded for Phaneuf for weiss/smith type deal that was reported that we'd be in the 2nd round today

I'd like to see the Wings use these "great" prospects that they supposedly have to get some real men that know the NHL and are guaranteed to play well for us.

Ya let's trade away larkin mantha athanasiou holmstrom bertuzzi for guys who will be ufa's in 3 years and then complain were the new leafs

#2604717 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 29 April 2015 - 10:26 PM

For everyone trading Howard I ask you this... Who is your backup then? I sure hope its not Gustavsson

Sign one ? Or trade for one? Off the bat i can think of adding james reimer In a deal if we landed Phaneuf

And before some of you laugh he had some great games for toronto and detroit would be way better ahead of him and it would only be for 25-35 games

That's just right off the bat I'd have to check who's available via ufa or potential trade bait to backup mrazek

#2604712 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 29 April 2015 - 10:24 PM

They're both professionals.  That sort of thing happens pretty often with goaltenders. 
To get rid of Howard for a guy who's started less than 50 games in the NHL is an extremely bold move, and one I don't see Holland making.

Mrazeks been a winner everywhere he has gone ... The fact that Babcock went to him rather than howard says a lot ... Been saying for the longest time mrazek will be a star and after this series I got no doubt

That being said he's still 23 and needs to improve obviously and the only way to do that is to make him play a lot

#2604667 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 29 April 2015 - 10:06 PM

Easily ... Move howard and get a nice few additions will only help us be better and sign a veteran backup

San Jose

Comes to mind right off the bat
