#2608693 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by sputman on 20 May 2015 - 07:05 AM

I personally think he'll take the Buffalo job. He doesn't want to be the coach that ends the Wings' playoff streak, and that could conceivably happen soon if the last couple of seasons are any indication.


Also, Buffalo has a metric ton of young talent... How fun would it be to inherit that, mold them while they're young and malleable, and then sit back and watch your creation play great hockey for years to come?


I don't have any direct links, but I recall reading numerous times Babock saying that sometimes a coach's voice becomes like Charlie Brown's teacher after a while, and that the players stop listening. I think he thinks he's at that point, and maybe has been for a while.

#2592118 4/9/15 GDT Red Wings 3 @ Canadiens 4 *Warning post #888 & 906*

Idk If you really want it, or if you just wanted to make that joke, but its right around the 1:30 mark either way.


No, I really wanted to see it. Thanks for the post.

It definitely seemed like it was coming into the bench from that angle, now the next time a pucks coming into the bench, he's not even going to flinch and he's going to get drilled in the mouth.


I don't think he learns. I think next time he'll not only grab the puck, he'll run away with it giggling.

What was that pass behind our net to two Canes players??

I said, stop the pinging, Wings.  My friend just called the team the Red Pings.  :lol:



#2578191 Both FLA goaltenders injured in same game

Posted by sputman on 04 March 2015 - 09:35 AM

I remember years back when Draper had to dress as a goalie. I'm pretty sure that he actually played a bit


I don't remember that at all.

#2576939 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by sputman on 01 March 2015 - 08:56 PM


I know he wore 26 with Carolina during the cup run, but I think he had to switch to 72 because someone else was wearing it for MTL and DAL. Jurco wears 26 for us.

Tomas Jurco trades #26 to Erik Cole for #62 and a conditional 3rd round pick

Posted by sputman on 01 March 2015 - 08:02 PM


Man even before we got cole I thought he'd look good on the 3rd line ... At the best 2nd , I can't see him on huge top line


He was playing next to Spezza on Dallas' top line.

#2571479 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by sputman on 17 February 2015 - 12:16 PM


It's amazing how people just come in here and assume he's some kind of drunk. I hope I'm listening to Ken and Mick for many more years.


Agreed, I love them both. 

#2568372 Great Brandon Prust Article

Posted by sputman on 04 February 2015 - 07:08 PM

I like fighting. I miss the days when if we were losing 5-1 somebody would give the fans something to cheer for.


But Prust himself admits that he's out to run people. The only difference between he and a rat is that he'll fight. His job essentially is protecting his team from people like himself.


Rats are the guys who show zero respect for opponents. They’ll go after the top skill player and take runs at goalies and then won’t answer the bell when it comes time to fight.



In my head I’m thinking, How am I going to run him (Lundqvist) without getting a penalty?


#2552372 Why is Kindl not playing?

Posted by sputman on 28 November 2014 - 08:51 AM

Kindl and Larkin for Myers?


He won't put up Mantha numbers but I think we would really regret trading Larkin down the road, I get the impression he's a great kid and works his ass off.

Statsny's   looking   pretty  good  right  about   now.


What's  the  likelihood  on  getting   Stastny? Can we agree   on 0%?

He's so humble, no celebration whatsoever after he scored he just smiled.


He looked more concerned for Abdelkader. 


I love that man.
