#2480068 2/2 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Capitals 6 (OT)

Franzen might be done for the season. Datsyuk, who knows. We have no defense. Jimmy is on drugs. Heaven help us.

We can't handle speed, aggression, pressure. And every team knows it.


They tried.

 

And they failed. Quincey and Colaiacovo, not good enough.


Why would Z go back-door on that play?

We need more low-percentage shots from the point. Those work really well for us.

I'm down with firing Babcock. Best coach in the league, but pretty clearly losing this locker room. Yeah, I know, injuries, but the guys who win the Jack Adams are the guys who make contenders out of injury-ravaged lineups (e.g. MacLean last season, John Cooper this season). Even with the injuries we have, we've got enough talent that we shouldn't have to get on our knees and pray for a regulation win every single night. We've become underachievers, and it's pathetic.

 

Crash for Blash!

This is actually kinda kinky. "We're gonna play drunk and injured. And you're gonna play sober and give it all you've got. And we're still gonna win. You suck that much."

 

Also, I hate Kyle Quincey.

Hey Dabura, I was in the bathroom when Nyquist scored  :lol:

 

As long as you weren't scoring with Nyquist in the bathroom.

That is why we have Alfie on the point. Knew exactly what he wanted on that shot and got it. Harder than it looks.

Thats Sochi spot they just showed? Not a single shot of hockey.




#2479611 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

I like to think that Kenny literally kicks tires. Like, he has this small collection of tires that he keeps somewhere in his office, and every day he kicks them. Then he wonders why no one is calling, so he tries kicking them again, this time with the other foot. You get the idea.

Ovechkin and Datsyuk have a secret post-game chat.

"Why you no let us win in regulation?"

You do it to yourself, you do

And that's what really hurts

You do it to yourself, just you

You and no one else

I'd be all for pursuing Vanek as a UFA, but trading for him this year is hardly feasible. Somehow I doubt they'd take Bert, Sammy, & Cleary for him, and anything else creates another hole and/or makes an already bad cap situation far worse. All for someone who may not stick around after this season.

 

And for the people dreaming about Faulk... I can't see why Carolina would even entertain the thought of trading him for anything less than eye-popping overpayment, except maybe straight up for Marc Staal.

 

No, I'm with you, trading for Vanek would be impossible and make no sense. When I say he'd be a good add, I mean as a UFA.

 

Faulk is unobtainable. But I can dream.




#2479017 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by Dabura on 30 January 2014 - 05:05 PM

If I have to choose someone, Jeff Blashill. He's like Mike Babcock's hipper, younger brother. Same sensibilities, exact same voice, teaches the same basic systems in Grand Rapids, is obviously familiar with the youth.

Players have already decided, that they don't want their families, girlfriends there that speaks volume to the amount of fear they and a lot of fans are having.

 

I dunno that it shows they're trembling with fear, just, well..."Honey? You and the kids might die. So you should probably stay home." From a you-don't-want-your-family-to-die perspective, it's a no-brainer. And, less nobly, you'd rather not have concerns about your family's safety in the back (or front) of your mind while competing for Olympic Gold. And, honestly, families can be kind of annoying.
