Interesting, you say don't blame the staff, then point out how Babs should have Pav/Nyquist and talk about the pairing of Kronwall/Stu being bad. Not to mention Bert/Mule/Cleary all playing terrible or even playing, if that isn't the coaching staffs fault (and the players themselves) then whose fault is it? The coaches are responsible for rewarding and disciplining players, or sitting players who are "injured".
you can blame babs, you can blame the rest of the coaching staff, blame kenny holland. none of them are at fault right now.
this team was successful all season long until we got injuries. a very well balance team.
its no one fault except the players. when only 3 or 4 players show up your not going to win. its a team sport. you need to play as a team. everyone has to play 100% do their job. when you got 3 players doing there job and no one else you arent going to win.
the line combos somewhat hurt. if nyquist is playing he needs to be on the first line him and datsyuk they have chemistry. you can blame babs for that.
4th line is a waste of space. homer battles hard. emmerton doesnt do s***. abs and miller do their job.
stuart and kronwall have played like ass on the back end. franzen cleary and bert and destroying the front end. they need to step it up.
the team has everything it needs to be a winning team, just got to put it all together and play hard for a full 60.
im not gonna lie im very concerned about their play going into the playoffs, they have no chance playing the way they are now and they need to fix it fast
