Topics I've Started

All purpose Mike Babcock thread

02 November 2015 - 03:22 PM

I loved Babcock when he was here. I thought he was a great coach for the Wings. But.


The Leafs are off to a worse start with Mike Babcock as their head coach than the last 5 seasons. Yes 5 seasons!


The last time the had only 1 win in the first month of hockey was in 2009-2010 season when they went 1-7-4.


This season their record for October is posted at 1-7-2


I can't help but scratch my head with this one folks.


Also any other Babcock rant or praise is welcome. We talk about it enough in other threads maybe all that can be directed here to one thread instead


I'd like to say that we will find out if Babs really IS the best coach in all of hockey. Sooner or later. 

Euro Twins nearing career/franchise mile stones

25 October 2015 - 11:47 AM

Love them both. Maybe a man crush not sure. 


Both guys are nearing huge miles stones in their career. And it looks like they both will be hitting a bunch of them this season!


Datsyuk -


Nearing the 900 games played mark.


Has 298 goals.


Has 571 assists. 


Has 869 points.


Zetterberg -


Has 298 goals.


Has 499 assists 


Has 797 points


Both are leading contenders for Franchise Game winning goals behind Yzerman, Federov, Shanahan. Which I think Z will surpass Shanny this year. 




Also they are more twins than the Sedins are because of the following video. Watch at the 1:10 mark. 



Cheers everyone. 

Crosby says Zetterberg most competitive player he ever faced as pro

04 October 2015 - 06:12 PM



Typical Crosby praise interview but he singles out Zberg (and Forseberg) as his most intense competition as a pro. 


“It’s pretty feisty [play­ing against them],” he said. “At times, pretty in­tense. Those guys are guys you re­ally go head-to-head against [as a cen­ter], tak­ing face­offs. “You see them all game, all over the ice. It’s not like a de­fen­se­man you might have a cou­ple of rushes against, or maybe you’re in the cor­ner with him the odd time. You play the same po­si­tion, and you’re go­ing up against him ev­ery shift.” Pre­dict­ably, Crosby ap­pre­ci­ates the way guys like Zet­ter­berg go all-in ev­ery time they hop over the boards.

Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

31 July 2015 - 11:50 PM

Forums have been kinda too much about free agency or wife beaters so I'd figure I'd stir it up.


Who do you think is better Tatar or Nyquist? Give some good reasons. Topic might get pretty detailed. Lets do it. 

Who is the better player Zetterberg or Toews. Prime vs. Present

31 July 2015 - 11:43 PM

There's been a lot of discussion of this on two different threads and it always seems to pop up here and there so I thought I'd create it's own and put this argument to rest via poll and discussion. 


Who do you think is better in their respective prime Toews or Zetterberg?


Who do you think is better currently? 


Try to eliminate the bias that you probably hate the Blackhawks and love the Red Wings. And pretend like Z and Toews were on different teams. Neither on the Red Wings nor Blackhawks. (Help remove bias)
