These crazy immigrants coming to the US popping out babies just to get citizenship.  Sheesh.

 

Bit of an extreme statement there. 

 

But I bet its because they want their kid to run for president. President Zetterberg. I'd vote for him or her.

It's cool that he or she will be born in Michigan :)

Not sure what Sweden's citizenship laws are but I'm willing to bet they want the kid to be born here just so the kid has the option of choosing what national team (Sweden or U.S.A) to represent if he/she goes into hockey.

 

Pretty smart if it does work out. 

 

Besides.. having a U.S. citizenship is pretty smart in general.

Man the Babcock frenzy is really getting to some people. Thank god the decision comes tomorrow before someone gets an aneurysm.

We're assuming too much. Didn't Blashill himself say that he was content with waiting for the moment? I know Holland said he would allow him to talk to other teams but if Babs signs a short term, I don't see why Blash would just leave knowing that he could take over sooner rather than later. He's signed for a few more years I think.

 

 

I can see Babs trying for short term to stay around while Pavel Datsyuk finishes out his contract here and while Zetterberg and Kronner drain out their skills as they age. All assumption tho.

I don't get the point of a short term deal. Babcock either wants to stay or he doesn't. The Wings shouldn't be a place holder until a better job comes along.

What about the fact that the organization itself actually WANTS Babcock?

 

I think people have forgotten the whole scope of this situation and focusing too much on the Babs side of the drama.

 

We have no idea what the players/leadership core want. Blashill or Babcock or someone else.

 

We do know the Holland made official statements that they want to keep Babcock. Do we know if they want him for 1 year? 4? 10? No.

 

We know Babcock wants to see what the options are. Do we actually know if money is the main reason? No. Do we know if he's the one who wants to leave? Does his wife? No.

 

Can only work with the actual information we have. We don't know who wants the short term contract. Babs or the organization or if it was mutual. And that's assuming if that rumor is even true.
