In Topic: Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

I get the joke, but he's kind of right.

 

Babcock was one of the best coaches in the game. To think that Blashill is just as good or better at this point is kind of absurd. Maybe because he coached some of the roster in the minors he'll be better? Maybe.

 

What if we go out in the first round again next year? The likely excuse will be "well it's his first year as coach, give em a break"

 

But if Babs went out again the first round next year, people would be pissed. When in reality it might just be the roster and not the coach.

 

At least we won't have to listen Kips insane anti-babs ranting anymore.

Nope...now its just the "blash isn't going to be as good as everyone is hoping and everyone is a bunch of idiots if you think he is going to even be good.we are going to suck even worse this next season." rhetoric

Blashill is great until the first time he trots out lines people hate. Assuming he gets the job, he will do good things and bad things. People will disagree with him. In the end I doubt he's better than Babcock even if he gets a bit better results. Even if the players are mostly the same next year, which is likely, young guys will be a year more experienced, older guys will be a year slower, meaning it won't be the same team.

We might as well not even watch next season.

Could be but is that considered a "big" trade?

Agreed.

 

At times Helm was a force to reckon with in the post season...He's finally turning into the player that we had hoped he'd become, but then again - as bad as it sounds - maybe his trade value is at a all time high, and what we get in return will fill a few holes?

Not showing it much here but I have to admit I was one of the worse helm haters until this season and more specifically the playoffs. He changed my mind with his play this season for sure.
