Who's to say that he doesn't make the fourth line or at least get a call up here and there? Even if he only gets 2 call ups I hope it's against Dallas and Ottawa .
Are people really pissed off about a depth signing probably around league minimum? Just be happy the Wings finally have a winger who has great size and will win some battles along the boards.
We have a few on here that think any sort of toughness or someone who will drop the gloves is worthless. Just ignore them. I still like watching big hits and fights. And I'm sure some others do as well. Not everyone wants pansy hockey.
Their chemistry was noted to be the best in the league at some point, some consider it better than Sedin twins chemistry. Even at this age, some of the plays they make is absolutely ridiculous. They're all over the opposing team and their finesse is ridiculous combined. Their no look passes are godlike at times.
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.
Aren't we ignoring the bull in the glass house regarding the Babcock coaching decision? I think Babs and many others with him are doubtful that the Red Wings will make the playoffs next season.
Moving out and letting Blashill handle that, in a sense acts as a dampener on that predicament. It Has to factor in for atleast 2 parties involved, namely Babcock and Ken Holland.
Babs sure as hell does not want that on his resumé. He'd rather coach the Leafs, which truly must be hopeless.
All that tells me is Don Cherry was right when he said once when babs goes to another team and is exposed on how bad he really is. And that he has been playing on the coat tails of Bowmans players this whole time. I am starting to lean that way with him as well.
I'm not really sure why you're so upset about people commenting on what is, without question, the biggest story in hockey right now.
Seriously what's the problem? You just don't like that I'm talking about Babcock in two Babcock related threads? Or you don't like that I feel differently about it than you obviously do?
