#2609363 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by Rivalred on 21 May 2015 - 11:32 AM

What does Babs have to lose? He has more or less said it himself, he likes a challenge and work with kids and direct them. The man has a cup and some other fancy hardware. He gets to call shots per say and run the ship to some degree.

This is why he left Detroit, Toronto is a challenge for him and that is what motivates him.... And the raise of course

Maybe he will win coach of the year, one thing he has not achieved

Was just reading that article and what sticks out is the "I feel like I can talk to him"

Maybe he's buying Babcock's old house, which used to be Osgood's.

Datsyuk doesn't like hand me downs, on the other hand, I recently found out that Babcock does; things that are in despair and need a lot of work

#2601183 ECQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 4, at Lightning 0 (DET leads series, 3-2)

Posted by Rivalred on 26 April 2015 - 09:46 AM

We need to improve the defense more than we need to have two starters in my opinion. If we can't improve the defense in a trade involving Howard, it's a non-starter to me though, to be clear. Then you definitely still want two good goalies for a minute, because as I've said, I don't expect Mrazek to have miraculously cleaned up all his consistency issues over the course of the lull-filled regular season. Bug again, getting a decent d-man for Howard would help more long term than keeping Howard in the short term.

This thread should be locked

Howard is not being traded or going anywhere, Petr and Jimmy will be rotated out, plain and simple

There needs to be a hybrid, a player who can score, hit, fight, and enforce

What do Leonidas, Tony Montana, Khal Drogo, and Drew Miller have in common?...

Leonidas and Miller are Spartans

#2587789 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by Rivalred on 01 April 2015 - 09:03 AM

Jim played the same way the first half of the season with the defense, only to be exposed by the in the SO as well.

I have to disagree with you also. Sens powered their way through the forward corps and Mrazek kept the team in the game, Wings didn't generate much for offense. Defense was scrambling last night for the most part
