@DennyKapp: Holland: "I think (Bab) is a fabulous coach... he's made our organization better. I respect he's pushed our players" http://t.co/2UKcpFk0YB

@Bill_Roose: #RedWings Holland: "Did the players always like Scotty? Do they always like Babcock? Nah. I like that. I like when the boss makes you work."

@HammerFox2: "We're trying to go younger...the one thing we don't get are the players that are stars right off the draft table." #Wings draft later

@greggkrupa: Babcock more upset by loss than I have ever seen him. Voice quivered. Eyes teared, a bit. "Can't believe lost."

@HammerFox2: "Solution is about both sides getting what they want" ken holland

@FSDwakiji: #RedWings Holland said when it is time to step up, Ilitch steps up better than any owner.

@CraigCustance: Holland said money won't be an issue in keeping Babcock.

@tkulfan: Zidlicky has concussion symptoms...has not decided whether he wants to play anymore
@KenKalDRW: Babcock said that there's a 24 hour rule for sulking in his house (after game 7 loss) and he used all 24 hours.
@Bill_Roose: #RedWings coach Mike Babcock said he doesn't know what the future holds. "I'm not trying to snow you. I don't know." http://t.co/MrSCsNf6rX
@HeleneStJames: "I don't want to be a general manager. I'm a coach" Mike Babcock
@Bill_Roose: #RedWings defenseman Kyle Quincey said he'll undergo surgery next week to remove bone chips from an ankle.
@CraigCustance: Jimmy Howard says he won't request trade. Looks forward to competing for starting job in Red Wings training camp.

I hope he had explosive diarrhea and s*** his entire uniform

Lol, didn't know that there was a cutoff point in the title. Can mods fix it or condense some of the spaces? 


Don't you dare!

Looking good, Hockeymom1960.


:lol:

I was just coming here to post that I swear it wasn't me, but this brings much more lulz.

Thornton is one of the best setup guys in the game. He may not be good enough to be "the guy", but he is more then qualified to be a second line center. Plus his cap hit is pretty low for a player of his skill set (6.75 million for another 2 years). Having a guy like him come in would allow D & Z to play together on the first line. What is your issue with Thornton?
 


My issue with Thornton is *why*. Everyone ******* and makes fun of the Wings for signing guys in their mid 30s on the downside of their prime. Thornton embodies that. My issue is that signing Thornton would be the kind of thing the Wings would be *expected* to do. He's a prototypical Detroit Red Wings Signing ™. We need to step outside of ourf****** comfort zone and try to fill in the middle--no more young guys in their early 20s with minimal experience. No more aging vets. I want prime meat, dammit! GIVE ME A 28 YEAR OLD STUD!!!!!

*ahem*

I also don't want to see Thornton stroke his rooster whilst wearing the winged wheel, but that's beside the point...

Good lord, Thornton?

I'm so glad teams aren't run on the internet...

Barf. Why on earth would you root for that scum bag PK?


Because he's a great player and seems like a decent guy? Because he does his job and gets under people's skin? Sure, he's immature and impulsive (Smith's disease), and sometimes he crosses the line. He's certainly not the only one who does.

So I agree. Go Habs Go!


#2604750 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 29 April 2015 - 10:40 PM

Babcock. If not him, then Blashill. He's waited patiently. I don't see them looking outside the org for this one.


#2604706 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 29 April 2015 - 10:20 PM

I don't know that he should start the season, but god damn am I proud of that kid. Comes in as a rookie, starts the playoffs and gives the team every opportunity to win. Multiple shutouts.

The future is bright, y'all.
