It just occurred to me: we have a second line now!!!

I was just thinking that.  If only Tatar had a great game, too, that'd be the ultimate finger in Holland's face.  But I'm afraid Babcock will use his game as an excuse to waive him or some garbage like that.

 

Waive Tatar? Even Holland's not that wacko.

 

The thing with Nyquist-Tatar is, IMHO, Nyquist is this good right now largely because he was up with us in the playoffs and gained some great experience and confidence. Tatar can sit every now and then, fine - but experience (or a lack thereof) is the thing with him. That's what he needs more than anything else. Experience.

I love Gustav Nyquist.




#2456287 Quincey

I want to make a thread called "How Much Better Would This Team Be Without Kyle Quincey?" We'd use fancy stats to prove that Quincey has singlehandedly cost us 10 games and provided absolutely nothing positive.

How many two-goal leads have we given up this season? 14?

More like Holland stupidview.




#2455706 Danny DeKeyser out 3-6 weeks with separated shoulder, LTIR

Better than 6-8 weeks for a broken collarbone. Still absolutely awful news though. Dammnit, Cleary and Quincey with your voodoo dolls

 

I broke a collarbone once. Very, very unpleasant.

 

My only hope here is that maybe Holland feels compelled to pull the trigger on one of those mythical "good trade" things. (Del Zotto? Niskanen?) And/Or maybe one of our Griffins gets a legitimate Opportunity.

 

Also, can I just say, this whole gets-injured-just-as-he's-starting-to-really-take-off business needs. to. stop.

I doubt that.  Personally, I think Mr. I's direct involvement with the day to day operations of the team has been grossly overestimated over the years to begin with. 

 

Well, I'm not saying Mr. I had a gun to Holland's head and fingers in all his pies. I'm talking more about general accountability. You'd think a losing streak like this, for an organization like this, and coming after years of disappointment (we haven't been past the second round in "ages"), might at least warrant a "Ken, what's going on? This is unacceptable," or something to that effect. I mean, obviously it's kind of a stupid point because we don't really know much at all about Mr. I's "style" when he was younger and healthier, never mind now. But you see where I'm coming from, right?

Hey. Guys? And Gals?

 

I know we're all seething with hate, but it's cool that we all seem to be on more or less the same page, for once.

I don't think it's Babs fault as much as it is Hollands. As a coach you want to make the best decisions working with what you have, so why the same roster that OBVIOUSLY isn't working? Does it take 7 games to realize that the lineups suck? Unfortunately I fear Babs would be the scapegoat and be the first to go in the event it comes to a house cleaning. 

 

I love Babs. But it really seems like he's losing the locker room, along with his mind. Maybe he's just been here too long. Everyone who's ever played for him and spoken about him has said he's one of those "hard" coaches. Often that kind of style only works for so long.

 

Him, the team, everything - it feels tired, old, stale. To put it mildly.
