The CBC has broadcast teams that tend to cover one or two teams rather than them all. Interesting reply though, my point is simple the CBC is no more biased than any broadcast crew. But a lot of folks around here seem to think other broadcast crews should gush all over their Red Wings, which is simply foolish.


It is not foolish, everyone should gush all over the wings. It's a scientific fact

Not a single penalty for the Leafs yet? Is that for real?

#2466496 Babcock's Job?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 20 December 2013 - 12:14 PM

Unfortunately there is a popular myth that Mike Babcock is the best coach in the league even though there is no evidence to support the claim. Just because he coaches the Canadian Olympic team he somehow is the best coach in hockey (that is the usual response).
 
No one should ever have a safe job in sports. If you lose when you are expected to win (in the Wings case losing would be not making the playoffs) you should be replaced by someone who can do the job better or fix your mistakes.
 
It is partially Ken Holland's fault. He signs the players, he negotiates with FA's and current dead weight players to keep them on the team and take roster spots away from guys like Eaves, Tootoo, Nyquist, and Jurco.
 
When Ken Holland retires and is replaced with someone who doesn't have the same love for Babcock (looking at you Stevie) then he will be more likely to be fired (if he screws up). But for now, short of missing the playoffs, Babcock being fired isn't a likely scenario.


In his tenure as an nhl coach he has more wins then any other coach, what more do you need for proof that he is the best nhl coach?

Does everyone now understand why Gustavsson is the back up and Howard the starter

#2464032 FAO Mike Babcock: Work on shootouts during practice

Posted by Euro_Twins on 13 December 2013 - 12:06 PM

For the love of anything holy, spend some time on this, 10 minutes a day perhaps?  9 points have been left on the table because of this. 
 
I've heard Babs hates the shootout, and although I cannot independently verify this, I wonder if that is true if he doesn't spend any time working on it. 
 
This is a massive gaping problem since last year.  One that can be easily addressed by spending some time working on it during practice.
 
Do it.
 
 
:hockey:


It wasn't a problem last year

#2462938 12/10 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Panthers 3 (SO)

Of course it worked too. Doesn't matter if penalties are legitimate in this league -- they always come attached with future makeup calls to even things out.

 

makes me miss fraser, a ref who wasn't afraid to make the right call, regardless of what others thought or said
