#2609663 Babcock says good-bye in full page ad. SIAP

Posted by LeftWinger on Today, 11:08 AM

Hopefully the first time TO is in Detroit, the organization puts together a nice presentation for him, so the fans can cheer and say goodbye.  Maybe just his picture on the scoreboard and announcer saying that the fans and team would like to thank him for 10 years of great hockey!  Crowd erupts, Babcock cries, then Mrazek shut's out the leafs....perfect night.

Red Wings say Mike Babcock is coming back to speak with Detroit media tomorrow morning.

 

Very classy IMO to come back and take questions




#2609445 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Helm isn't going anywhere , seriously doubt it he can play the wing as well and has a ton of speed

Tell Babs when he comes calling for glendening to pay up a 1st or take a hike lol

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?

A source I trust implicitly tells me it's "close to 100%" that Jeff Blashill will be named next coach of Red Wings soon. No search.

I blame Babcock for continuing to use E as a #2 just much as I blame Holland for not getting us another dman. It wasn't working yet Babs continued to put him out there.

 

I always saw that as making the best of what is a thin defensive corps.

 

Ericsson shouldn't be a #2 guy, but Dekeyser was actually 2nd on the team in terms of minutes.  If you look at even strength minutes, Ericsson was 4th on the depth chart, which is about where he should be. 

 

If you make Kronwall Dekeyser the top pair that's certainly better on paper, but it doesn't do great things for the other pairings.  I think Ericsson was "good enough" to survive with Kronwall on the top pair and left more options for the other pairings.

What would be really funny is if this is the offseason that Kenny finally lands a couple big free agents.  :P

Not bitter, but Babs left us or more money (can't blame him or taking twice the offer) so no way do I even think about trading ANY of our kids to Toronto in a Phanuef deal!  No way Babs turns his back on us and deserves to get anyone he walked away from! Especially Larkin, Mantha... he has his money, he can develop his own kids!

I asked about the $8M a few pages ago, and a few pages earlier than that I said, the only way he goes to TO over DET is if the offer was two-fold...I was really kidding about the two-fold thing, but I guess that is what it took for real...wow!

Is Phil Kessel a Babcock guy?

 

:lol:

 

He wouldn't backcheck if his mother was in his team's goal.

Get tons of money and you get to take every Spring off. Who can blame him.

Bit of a shocker, all along it was Det and Buff ... now this morning, Det and Buff are out and it is Leafs, Blues, or Sharks ??!!

 

Out of those 3, I think Blues would be his best option if he truly wants to win now.  Shocked that Toronto is still in the mix.  

 

It just confirms for me that no one really has an inside scoop on this or knows what's actually going on other than Babcock and the teams involved.
