#2479151 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by BadgerBob on 31 January 2014 - 11:09 AM

Gordon Bombay no questions asked. He just has a way at helping players maximize their potential...

 

He's good, but I'd rather have Coach Reilly. Taught the Minnesota Miracle man everything he knows. He tells it like it is and teaches kids to go for the dubya. It aint worth winning if you can win big.

 

 

But seriously, I can't picture anyone I'd rather have behind the bench over Babs. Maybe stick Chelios back there as an assistant to help light a fire under some of these guys. Teach them how to play with a bit of an attitude, and maybe make him condition them.




#2479138 Would you be ok with this roster?

Posted by BadgerBob on 31 January 2014 - 10:32 AM

I'd say yes, though I'd like to see Glendening up as well, I can understand guys with no options coming up. If we can't fill our needs through FA, I wouldn't mind waiting until next off season to see what's out there, or possibly making a deal before the season starts. Cutting the fat off this team should make us a better team anyways. Don't spend money in free agency just because the cap room is available.

In terms of no cap until the following year, that's not true either, I think there are off season cap rules.

 

According to capgeek.com you're right:

 

Teams can exceed the salary cap's upper limit by 10 percent during the off-season. The following count toward the team's cap payroll:

  • All players on one-way contracts, regardless of where (or if) they were playing the previous year.
  • All players on two-way contracts, in proportion to the number of days spent on an NHL roster the previous season.
  • All restricted free agents who have been extended a qualifying offer (while the offer is valid), with one-way qualifying offers counting in full and two-way qualifying offers counting as described in No. 2.
  • All restricted free agents signed to an offer sheet (such players count against the team extending the offer sheet while it is still valid).
  • All buyouts.

Example: A player with a cap hit of $500,000 and signed to a two-way contract was on an NHL roster for 94 days in the previous season, which was 188 days long. During the off-season, he will count [$500,000/188] x 94 = $250,000.

Example: A player with a cap hit of $1.25 million and signed to a one-way contract was assigned to the AHL in the previous season and spent no days on an NHL roster. The player will still count $1.25 million during the off-season.

Please note CapGeek.com does not yet calculate the off-season cap. Our off-season cap estimates are a projection of opening-day cap space.




#2478732 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by BadgerBob on 29 January 2014 - 12:07 PM

Only way you can talk to me about trading Datsyuk or Zet is if the return is the likes of Stamkos and Tavares. 

 

Much better :lol:

Alfie just glides in looking like the controller disconnected

Abdelkader?

 

Wow can't believe I forgot him. Must have been too late for me. I'd like a roster like this:

 

Nyquist Pav Alfie

Hank Helm Abs

Jurco Sheahan Tatar
Eaves Glendenning Bert

 

Cleary Sammy Miller (I'd rather keep Eaves and trade Miller, just my preference of the two). Problem is when Franzen and Weiss come back they gotta make room for them too. Not sure how to go about doing that.




#2476240 Turning point!?!?!

Posted by BadgerBob on 23 January 2014 - 12:53 AM

And for the love of god can we stop giving Eaves the short straw?!

Screw Pierre. I applaud Jurco for trying something different. Kane could have done the same thing and he would've busted one saying how close he was with those amazing hands.

I don't get why everyone prefers Miller over Eaves...I like Eaves better IMO




#2475377 So when would you make a move and what type?

Posted by BadgerBob on 22 January 2014 - 02:22 PM

Still can't believe Yzerman fleeced that dope Holland for a first round pick in that deal.  Did any Wings fan actually get excited when they heard what the pricetag was?

 

We'll be lucky to get a 2nd round pick for Quincey at this point.  

 

He owes us one for that. Stevie! Give us Stamkos and yourself, they can have Kenny and Quincey! :lol:




#2475178 Canadian Olympians trust, believe in Babcock

Posted by BadgerBob on 21 January 2014 - 03:08 PM

Not the same at all. Babs is a great, world-class coach. That isn't the issue with the Wings at all. The issue is if he is the right coach for the team Holland keeps putting together.

 

The issue is Holland giving him dusty players to put on the ice with NTC's so the team is handcuffed to them.

Can we replace Sammy and Cleary with Kozlov and Feds? They at least still have hands and wheels.
