This is really disgraceful, What a f***ed-up hockey team Holland and Babcock have put together. Both should be fired. Illitch should offer either Bowman or Yzerman anything they want to "unf***" and revamp this entire organization. Starting with Holland's departure. Then Babcock. After all..........who's gonna pay to watch this garbage next season?
Jimmy Howard. The "one hitf****** wonder". Nice game, Jimmy. Your expendable, too.
It was Ken Holland's job to better this team and he obviously hasn't done that. Where as other teams in the division have apparently improved as we saw tonight. I guess it all started when he let Hossa walk 2 seasons ago. He should be fired.
[quote name='PavelValerievichDatsyuk' timestamp='1333829521' post='2279838'] Wow, that is something! The team dominated at times. They lacked the finishing push, but there were many chances. Crawford maybe not be amazing, but he played quite well today. The Red Wings battled back and tied the game. I'm not sure what you think the words "disgraceful, ridiculous, or fiasco mean" but I'd check the dictionary if I were you.
I think you better learn the game. Keep watching. Hopefully, you'll eventually catch-on.
Just another disgracefulf****** loss at home. This is ridiculous and especially to a slightly better than medicocre opponent with a medicore defense and goaltending. They made Crawford look great and the truth of the matter is he's no big deal and never has been. Where the hell is Illitch? Hopefully we'll be hearing from him after our early exit in the playoffs. He's the owner so let 'em do something about this fiasco and the jackasses that answer to 'em.
Yet another disgraceful loss at home. No scorers and no scoring. Who the hell are they gonna beat in the playoffs anyway? This team isn't going anywhere and regardless of where they finish. You can thank your overrated coach and inept General Manager.
Get rid of Holland and that "jackass" behind the bench should be right behind 'em. It's pretty obvious that this team needs a complete overhaul and starting with management. What the hell is Illitch waiting for? I've been saying this all along.
This disaster would've never-ever happened under Scotty Bowman. Babcock is a lousy motivator and always has been. Not to mention that Holland has (obviously) done nothing to improve this team. Kyle Quincey??? Ian White??? Nice acquisitions, Kenny. Are you kidding us? Let's see how many non-renewels they'll be or won't be at the box office in the next few months. Both Holland and Babcock should realize that. Money talks. An early exit in the playoffs could very easily mean they're exit as well. That would be the only upside to an early elimination. Tonight's loss is very indicitive of how dysfunctional both the team and management actually are. Injuries or no injuries. Itllitch will inevitably have to "clean house" and basically start from scratch.
Like I said..........get rid of Holland. Once the season ticket holders start complaining and cancelling.........he'll be gone and hopefully take Babcock with 'em. One of worst inspirational motivators in professional sports.
I understand that... but playing at a rival on a back to back... also we played without Datsyuk, Lidstrom, Bertuzzi, Ericsson, Howard, Kindl (and Eaves)... It was going to be really tough to win this game, I'm just glad they brought effort and didn't lay an egg
Good teams win anywhere and regardless of who's in or out.
Yet another one goal loss. No scoring to speak of. That's what Holland gets for sitting on his ass at the trading deadline. You get what you pay for and nothing from nothing leaves nothing. Great job, Kenny. Let's see what the season ticket renewals are gonna be like in a few months. And where will you be? Hopefully, elsewhere.
