Let's get physical... Physical...


#2589858 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by Dominator2005 on 06 April 2015 - 03:01 PM

Sorry Kip but I said that he's the best and in my opinion it's the case. He's the winner and he has won on all possible levels. There will be 29 other teams interested in him this summer. He has done great job considering that our star players are aging and injured most of the time. Beside of Dats, Zetterberg and Kronwall... Who do we have? Nyquist, Tatar, She, Jurco, Pulks will need time to develop but all those players are similar... They will need to add some size and toughness and a true Defensive Defensemen... Not Errorson/Quincey type of player.
Babs has won on every level. Only guy that comes in my mind as replacement is Tippet. Blashill is a good AHL but that doesn't mean that we will win with him... Again, there is a Boucher who was highly regarded and he lost his job to a layer...

2011 - 2nd round loss to San Jose 
2012 - 1st round loss to Nashville 
2013 - 2nd round loss to Chi 
2014 - 1st round loss to Bos
 
Babs is a good coach but he is not anywhere near the best coach 'period'.  Sutter and Quennville might be the best coaches in the last 5 years.  Yes, I know there will be teams lining up for him but personally, I think Babs is overrated.  He is good but certainly not the best.  When was the last time he won a Cup?  
 
Why throw $5m/yr to have him take you to round 1 or 2 ... plenty of coaches can do that for you.  Bylsma got fired for that.  

Sutter, really?!
Quennville is coaching a young loaded team with Toews, Kane, Seabrook, Keith... Then you have Saad, Sharp, Hossa... and Bowman isn't afraid of making some trades. Imagine Dats, Zetterberg 6-7 years younger. Babs is coaching a small/weak group of players. Season is 82 games long and we need some beef and less fashion models.

Guy Boucher was a great prospect/junior coach and what he has done in Tampa???

C'mon, Blashill was a lucky that Detroit's mentality is to bring their prospects slowly so he had a talent and skills on his team.

Babs is a best coach period. This team is built soft and small, Errorson and Quincy are our top 4 def which is bad.

For those Holland lovers:
NyQuist, Tatar and 1st for Bouwmester
NuQuist, Smith and 1st (Mantha) for Edler

And that list goes on. White, Colo... are the AHL players which were brought as top 4 Defs

If someone needs to be "replaced" than it should be Holland and not Babs.


#2589279 Hudler Has 72 Points

Posted by Dominator2005 on 05 April 2015 - 11:09 AM

He would never produce in Detroit as he's doing right now. He's good fit for them but wasn't for us. Good luck to him and lets cheer for the actual players that we have


#2584051 3/22 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by Dominator2005 on 22 March 2015 - 01:24 PM

Backes on Tatar, Reaves on Zetterberg... The reason whythis team needs to get TOUGHER

Posted by Dominator2005 on 22 March 2015 - 01:18 PM

This team needs a true, mean DEF: McQuaid or Polak.

Smith wasn't that bad...

Errorson has been brutal

Need some beef


#2572428 Team next season?

Posted by Dominator2005 on 19 February 2015 - 07:46 AM

So far Smith has been solid. Big E should be moved.

Posted by Dominator2005 on 07 February 2015 - 07:29 PM

Best coach in the NHL period.


#2569126 Report: Red WIngs interested in Franson

Posted by Dominator2005 on 07 February 2015 - 07:28 PM

Detroit still owns Almquist's NHL rights... Just like Nashville with Radulov.


#2568306 Petry next Oiler to be shopped - FTLOG Kenny, get it done!

Posted by Dominator2005 on 04 February 2015 - 02:11 PM

Petry is RH Quincey. He would be 5th-6th D on Detroit.
