#2605092 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by rick zombo on 30 April 2015 - 02:46 PM

Ya let's trade away larkin mantha athanasiou holmstrom bertuzzi for guys who will be ufa's in 3 years and then complain were the new leafs

 

No  s***  eh? Some people.


Then let's stop losing in the first round.

 

 

 

Genius.  That's basically what I meant. I'll spell it out: "I suppose what I really want for next season is to not lose in the first round"




#2605079 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by rick zombo on 30 April 2015 - 02:17 PM

Who says the Wings even want Babcock back? This could be fact, and needs to be a bigger part of this "will he/won't he" discussion.




#2605068 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Remember back in March when there was "no goalie controversy" :lol:

I suppose what I really want for next season is for threads like this to NOT pop up after the first round.




#2604998 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by rick zombo on 30 April 2015 - 12:04 PM

Just watched the post-game interview with Babcock, it's up on NHL.  

 

Classic:

"They went to church and we missed mass."  

 

Somebody should have asked: "Moving forward, how do you see the goalie situation playing itself out next year?"   

 

To which he'd respond "I plan on playing Fleury and Greiss about 60/40 respectively".




#2604971 Who is the coach next season?

If Babs doesn't coach the Wings next year, I hope he stays in the East so that I can watch Blashill beat him all season long with his old roster. 

 

:lol:  Awesome.

What are the chances the Pens fire their coach and get Babcock?  

That's what I think will happen.

I feel like I don't even know you anymore


Let go of the West. Give up the past. Come, join me in my loathing of the Eastern Conference.

Did you really just say you'd rather the Blackhawks win the Cup??
 
I can't even look at you right now...

Agreed rick I think you need to take a moment to reevaluate your life choices right now.

I can't help it. I hate the teams in our division more now than I hate old rivals. The Hawks shouldn't adversely affect any Wings fans now any more than Tampa does.

We just lost to Tampa and that makes me f****** hate them. I think that's a legit way of feeling/seeing things.


#2604780 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by rick zombo on 29 April 2015 - 11:21 PM

What's most unfortunate about Holland is that he squandered his opportunity to lure in talent with relatively young superstars. He should've begun retooling when we were at the top of our game in 2009-2010. He had opportunities, and a much more attractive roster to lure guys in with. It's hard to blame him for the last few years struggles when you look just at those years, but he could've set himself up with a much more favorable hand if he'd been more aggressive five years ago. The writing was on the wall with the defense then, but nothing was done.
 
Everything that's happened since is mostly a result of a couple of years of getting caught really flat-footed.


Holland's balls were in a vice because of the cap in 09-10. He lost Hossa, Hudler, and Samuelsson. He wasn't in a position to lure anyone.

He could have traded Filpulla + Franzen for a young blue chip D-man and re-signed Hossa.

And Jakub Kindl! 

 

I'm telling you, he's going to be a monster tonight.  I can feel it. 

 

If he is, and the Wings win, I'll buy his jersey. Even if it has an Oilers logo on the front.

Less focus on who's not playing, and more focus on who is: Pavel freekin' Datsyuk.




#2603432 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by rick zombo on 29 April 2015 - 01:47 PM

I just realized: at least Kronwall won't be able to deflect the puck past Mrazek, if this game goes to OT, like he did two years ago vs Chicago. :lol:




#2603427 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by rick zombo on 29 April 2015 - 01:37 PM

I feel bad for anyone who actually believes sports aren't rigged in any country .

Can they predict the exact scores? Obviously not if a goalie comes and makes 58 saves let's say and ruins it nothing they can do but they can try to influence a game to go one way by giving penalties and giving out ridiculous suspensions

 

Exactly. Everyone knows the outcome if Hedman or Coburn had made that hit instead of Kronwall.




#2603388 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by rick zombo on 29 April 2015 - 12:54 PM

Anyone heard of anyone else on kronwalls side?

 

Scott Cullen from TSN.

 

Basically said "I must be a barbarian because I didn't have a problem with that hit"

 

Someone had a great comment on Twitter that was directed at Cotsonika thst sums up my feelings on the matter perfectly:

Getting it right 1 out of 10 times isn't getting it right.

 

Awesome comment. All the talking heads are getting excited about the league finally dishing out a suspension regardless of the players star status or how pivotal the next game might be.

 

Until someone on a team they actually care about gets suspended.
