In Topic: Question for the Board regarding Babcock

20 May 2015 - 09:29 AM

I think he'll leave. I'd like to see a few fresh new faces and some shakeups so it doesn't bother me. If he leaves then I wish him luck with Buffalo. Thanks for the Cup but you're a bit overrated. I think he'd do well with the Sabres.

God I kinda miss playing these teams. Can't stand them both. I think the Ducks are due and I think they make the Cup and then lose out to the Rangers.

Thornton + Pulkkinen = twine rips!
Cheechoo got 54 goals on a line with Thornton.  Imagine what a pure shooter could do with Jumbo Joe.

I hear ya about Joe but I feel like we have an endless amount of playmakers.

If possible I wouldn't mind Thornton, Phaneuf and a second pairing defenseman. I'm sure, with Thornton battling on the boards and giving some of our guys some on the money passes and Phaneuf with a more than decent shot out back, that we could generate a bit more grittiness and offense in a playoff series. I still think we need some sort of net crashing/goalie screening goal scorer. Joe has always been a setup guy.

I'd definitely like the following things:
1. Babcock moving on to a situation that fits him and the Red Wings better. I feel we had those Cups in 07, 09 and yes...even 2013 with just a little more urgency and fire we should've gotten it done. Not saying Babs was a bad coach but I just can't fathom how it's possible to constantly let teams back into a series we should've already won. Babs doesn't have a good track record in Game 7s. I'm not big on the adjustments he makes(or doesn't make) and I really feel he is a bit overrated. That being said, I believe he can flourish with the right group of players. Just not this group.

2. Cleary and Franzen need to retire. We would have no Cup since 02 if not for Franzen and Cleary was a solid role player but this isn't 08-09 anymore. Time to move on.

3. For the love of God get a real first pairing defenseman. A guy that can score and actually block shots is what I would love to see.

4. Please get a bona-fide scoring, front net presence. Dude that can crash the net. A good enough player that can allow us to drop Abby and Helm down a few lines where they truly belong.
