If I wasn't on mobile, I would be posting the "old man yells at cloud" picture from the Simpsons.

So just imagine that's what you're looking at right now.

@markhmasters: Mike Babcock says key factors in his decision:
1. What his wife thinks
2. Winning

@markhmasters: Babcock had one preliminary discussion with wife yesterday & "that conversation didn't go very well. Didn't last that long."

@markhmasters: Why didn't conversation with wife go well? "Got heated up pretty quick," Babcock says with a laugh

@markhmasters: Babcock on coaching in Detroit: "When I went some place (new) before, there was always a better job. Theres no better job."

*eyeroll*

@wingsfrontman: Abby broken finger. E had broken toe. Glendening torn tendon on back hand. Pav had bruised ankle.

@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."

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.

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...
