#2607958 What's our draft position this year? And best defensemen available

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 15 May 2015 - 11:26 AM

My god what's so hard to understand about fans wanting local heroes ?


What's hard to understand is that you're stating that "fans" want this with no proof of that even being the case. You, frankgrimes, may want this, but that doesn't mean that everyone or even a minute cross section of the fans of any given team want this. I would agree with others above that for anyone who is not xenophobic, icing the *best possible team* regardless of country of origin is the most important thing. Also, as previously pointed out, the Wings *have* multiple players from the area on the team. Now, I was born and raised in MI and this means nothing more to me than a Pierre McGuire interesting trivia tidbit. Nothing. Are they good players who complement the team? Great. If it does mean something to someone else, great. You got it.

TL;DR this isn't a thing. Stop trying to convince us that it is a thing, and that we all want it.

#2607234 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 11 May 2015 - 06:05 PM

I want the Ducks to take this round, then they can get swept in the next.

Then we can be done with this horrible playoff season that has sucked all the balls.

There was a while there back in the 90s when I was convinced that finishing 3rd was our "Stanley Cup Sweet Spot" :lol:


#2606743 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 08 May 2015 - 12:54 PM

Of course he could just be saying that. He could also *not* just be saying that. My point is that speculation based on bones that are getting thrown to the media is futile. Maybe he'll leave. Maybe he'll stay. We won't know until we know. I'm not hanging my hat on anything that's said until that statement is "Mike Babcock has/has not re-signed with Detroit."


#2606739 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 08 May 2015 - 12:47 PM

@HeleneStJames: For those who think Babcock a goner, heed this from Mike Babcock: "My family loves Detroit. It's way easier for my family to stay here."

@HeleneStJames: Mike Babcock: "My kids are going away, but they want to come back to Detroit on Thanksgiving. They have ties here. Easier for them if stay."

Does this come as a surprise to anyone? He would be foolish not to take himself to market to see what the actual going rate for his services is. That will inform how negotiations with Detroit will go moving forward. Doesn't mean he's leaving.
