what is the reason for discussing all these things? We need a major overhaul of this roster right now. Now. And there are no persons in this organization who have the balls.


the last time I remember we had the balls is when Coffee and Primaue were traded. It was 20+ years ago.

Mrazek, Smith, Mantha, Jurco all should be in for game 3. But they won't.


I don't remember the last time we were so helpless.

I hope he stays for that one year. He served very well for the Red Wings so I wouldn't be upset like many here if he decides to go to Russia.

People questioning hank must not know much about hockey. He is still extremely effective and calling for him to retire is just a joke.

I noticed some people whining about Brendan smith despite the fact that he was our best dman the past 2 games! He has been physical, played smart and most importantly he can actually PASS THE Puck up the ice! You want to know who our worst dman has been lately? Danny dekeyser. He's had an average season but lately he's been horrible. He has been turning pucks over so much and losing too many battles. Quincy can't pass the puck if his life depended on it. Ericsson is a little boy in a big man's body. Marchenko is below average. Green can move the puck fine but can lose battles. This is why our forwards can't score because they spend half their time waiting for a pass that doesn't even come to them.

And for the love of god how does this pp coach still work for this team?! I've never seen such a bad power play consistently get worse. The worst part is that nothing has changed they keep trying the same thing over and over. Change it up!!! Take Nyquist and tatar off and give more time to AA and larkin. Play smith instead of no skill dekeyser. At least smith has offensive instinct and creativity that Danny just wishes he had.

Fact is we lost this game because our D sucks. We lost this game because blashill and the coaching staff was once again out coached. Blame Kenny all you want but he did everything he could in the offseason to make this team better. We got green, Richards, larkin, AA and mrazek full time as our additions. That should make the team perform better than last season's team but they are somehow worse. I'd say coaching is a huge factor in that... if the blues let hitchcock go after this season I say we sign him.


Kenny was a part of the problem over the last several years. He still is. Babcock saved us and made competitive (up to some extent). Now in addition to incompetent GM we've got incompetent/young training stuff.

I want to believe AA won't be send down again. It is obvious he belongs to the main team. However, something tells me Holland will find a reason to send him to GR...
