#2612802 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 June 2015 - 05:47 AM

Thought this thread would be about the Ducks versus Hawks instead it's another Quennville versus the best coach in all of hockey (useless) debate.

Q is a very good coach but he is no Babcock. There is a reason wh the guy is so highly regarded and finally the highest paid coach in the league.

I thinkk the top coaches are: Babs > Suter > Q > Tippet > McLellan > Julien > Hitchcock > Bylsma

up and coming ones: Nelson + Cooper + hopefully Blashill

Anyway, this game came down tothe big guys and well...the Hawks big guns delivered the Ducks didn't they didn't even goon it up :(

Hate to see Chicago there but man Toews versus Stammer should be one for the ages.

Hopefully Keith and Seabrook are tired

The more I watch that replay, the more I can see how the refs saw it as a good goal.  I mean, was it really a kicking motion?  When in doubt, allow the goal.


 

Neither have the Hawks for that matter.  Got to give credit where credit is due.

 

This rule is so difficult why not make it simple? Goal with the foot aren't counting period no mysterios kicking or not motion.

Maybe I should just be a sharks fan then at least I wouldn't have to deal with this during the postseason

 

There is enough time left but the Ducks need to get it going and at least outmuscle them, go to the dirty areas and do whatever it takes to get back into the game.




#2612117 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend Logo Revealed

Posted by frankgrimes on 30 May 2015 - 04:44 PM

But the question is will/can there fanbase pull that off? There not exactly the biggest fan base and let's be honest, every teams fanbase wants there players in only.

 

I think so yes nowadays everyone has a pc, notebook, smartphone, tablet and maybe even some of those "computer" watches. So tons of ways to install some clickers




#2612095 Sabres hire Dan Bylsma as head coach

Buffalo will absolutely see success sooner. Not because of who is behind the bench, but they have been stock piling good prospects for a few years now. Toronto's cupboards are basically empty. 

 

Zadarov, Bogosian, Eichel, Reinhart and probably even more talented young guns I've forgotten. Toronto is already over the moon for that cocky Nylander kid (what has he done at the NHL level ?) the only peice they really have is Morgan Rielly. So for sure Buffalo will be better in the not so distant future their rebuild is ahead at least 2 years

To honest I thought it looked like the Buffalo logo in terms of colorschemes.

 

That being said happy for Nashville having this game, although the ASG has sadly turned into a joke but seeing Weber and Chara upping the hardest shot speed again, will be something I'll watch

#2610007 ECF : Tampa Bay Former Rangers vs. New York New Rangers

Posted by frankgrimes on 25 May 2015 - 06:14 AM

So which Rangers player will guarantee a win in game 6?  

 

Rangers thankfully aren't like that and this series is far from over been a great series so far.




#2609875 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Posted by frankgrimes on 23 May 2015 - 02:57 PM

Stamkos will be re-signed so will Kopitar and Seabrook he is part of Chicago's core. They'll move heaven and earth before him


#2609834 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by frankgrimes on 23 May 2015 - 03:29 AM

At this point, it doesn't even matter why he left. We had him as our fav teams coach for 10 years. He left on good terms. There are no hard feelings on either end with the exception of some bitter fans. 

 

No matter what some people think, Babs just had an exit interview, paid for an ad to say goodbye and he is by far, bar none the best coach in all of hockey, no discussion needed. That man even held back tears at the start of his presser.

 

I wish him nothing but the best, thanks for 10 marvelous years Babs . Change is scary, it's an unknown thing...like I've said many times maybe Blashhill works out maybe he doesn't but one thing is for sure but I pray they at least interview other candidates just to get a feeling on how people from the outside are viewing this team right now.




#2609365 Report: Oilers hire McLellan

Posted by frankgrimes on 21 May 2015 - 11:34 AM

I'm happy for him and he basically confirmed what everyone knew oilers are going to pick McDavid . Man that franchise is the huge winner this year. So happy for Todd I think he is a great guy and will do very well there


#2609343 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by frankgrimes on 21 May 2015 - 10:58 AM

I don't understand why these names keep getting brought up, they obviously didn't want to come here as Holland had offered them contracts. Myers would have cost Tatar++ or Nyquist++ are you sure you would do that deal?


For a young Chara ? Heck yes there are only two guys I wouldn't have traded Larkin and Mantha Ehrhoff wanted one more year than Kenny was willing to offer, at some point he has to understand that this team sadly isn't seen in the same light as before so to get a deal done some giving in to the demands has to happen..

Man buffalo man up and don't act like girls which didn't get their prefered shoes ..sending reporters to Toronto is just stupid.
