What a goal by OV today. I'm not a big fan of his but man that was beastly.
And honestly I could care less who wins this series, which actually makes it pretty fun to watch. I'm not emotionally invested so for a change I can sit back and watch the hockey. To each their own but I don't totally understand who stop watching once the Wings are eliminated. I highly recommend watching a series you're not invested in if the hockey is good.
I felt that way about the Capitals/Islanders series. It was a great seven games worth of hockey. It's educational to watch these other series. When you only watch one team, you have a tendency to get tunnel vision about the team's successes and failures. There are a lot of ways to be good, and bad, at professional hockey.
Edit: Jesus Christ. Ovechkin is unreal. Too bad he was all washed up a couple years ago eh? Lol.
If his wife is rational like he is, she probably wants him to further his career and go for expanded responsibility or a GM spot. I think he likes what he's doing and doesn't much care about career implications.
Or maybe she has ambitions of her own? That would be rational I think.
Or hell, maybe she just wants to stay in the place that's been her home for a decade. Where her kids grew up, and her friends live, and she feels comfortable?
I don't think there's a ton of use speculating about the desires of Mike Babcock's wife. Especially since, unlike her husband, we know jack squat about her as a person.
True. I wasn't so much refuting what he said as just commenting on what has been a common theme about Babcock's potential new teams. There's been a lot of speculation about him going somewhere that he could act as GM as well but I'm not sure what it's based on anything other than the natural assumption that most coaches want more control over their roster.
I'm just not sure that's his style.
I mean, he hired an assistant coach who a few years prior basically wanted to climb onto his bench and kick his ass. The guy apparently thrives on conflict
I knew there was a reason I liked Tony Granato lol.
@tkulfan: Zidlicky has concussion symptoms...has not decided whether he wants to play anymore @KenKalDRW: Babcock said that there's a 24 hour rule for sulking in his house (after game 7 loss) and he used all 24 hours. @Bill_Roose: #RedWings coach Mike Babcock said he doesn't know what the future holds. "I'm not trying to snow you. I don't know." http://t.co/MrSCsNf6rX @HeleneStJames: "I don't want to be a general manager. I'm a coach" Mike Babcock @Bill_Roose: #RedWings defenseman Kyle Quincey said he'll undergo surgery next week to remove bone chips from an ankle. @CraigCustance: Jimmy Howard says he won't request trade. Looks forward to competing for starting job in Red Wings training camp.
This is a weak argument. I'd like Barnaby and Claude Lemieux in our team too. Doesn't mean they weren't flaming pieces of s***.
Except I don't think he's a flaming piece of s***, and I think it's absurd to mention him in the same sentence as guys like Lemieux. PK is no angel, and he certainly still has some growing up to do, but I don't think he's quite the ******* some people make him out to be.
