I'll never doubt Kenny again. That is a fantastic deal.

#2674448 This hits the nail on the head......

Fixation on this "less is more" quote is too redundant.

 

It's taken completely out of context and quoted wrong. He said "less can be more exciting" and as I understood it Holland said that in regard to the league as a whole , not specifically for the Red Wings. He also made clear several times that he wants to improve the Wings, but that it is going to be difficult and a long term process. Overall the presser this year was probably the one in which he was the most critical towards the state of the team. 

 

This article is not even close hitting the nail. It's far more close to the thumb......

If they have to use the company name they should have gone with Little Caesars Colosseum. ;)




#2673037 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Posted by derblaueClaus on 22 April 2016 - 04:47 PM

Question ... how does changing lines and TOI actually work??  So often, we blame the coach for amount of time on the ice but what I understand is that players just jump on and off for shifts ... it's like they intuitively know when they go.  I mean, I don't ever see coaches tapping on players shoulders to say 'you three are next'.  Maybe during time outs, a coach can send guys out specifically for a play.  So ... how does it really work?  

 

It's pretty simple. The coach calls the name of the line thats going out next, usually by the name of the center. So if you're RW on Zetterbergs line and you hear Blashill calling "Z" or "Zetterberg" you know its your turn. Then you wait for your "changing partner", in this case the RW currently on the ice. If he comes up for the change you go.

 

I'd give Blash some time. It was his first season, he made the playoffs. He also made a few questionable decisions, but I want to see him coaching another year before I decide if I hate him.

#2668346 Money On The Board - 25 years worth of playoffs style!

Posted by derblaueClaus on 13 April 2016 - 09:08 PM

Tremendous.  I have no idea how much that is worth, but it has to be worth something.

 

Around 1,13 $ today. I hope it rises during the course of our run. Not that much more but I'm not exactly what you'd call rich.

Serious question : Did we ever score on one of those empty or near empty nets this season ?

 

 

Edit : Otherwise an even better period. Tampa as no right to be tied in this game.
