#2609734 Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

Posted by marcaractac on 22 May 2015 - 02:46 PM

Assistant to head minor leaguer to head NHLer, and went to the finals in the AHL

Similar

So what makes good coach is a good team???

Like I said. He has zero experience as an NHL head coach. His only plus is a small familiarity with the roster.

That's not much

 

Good coaches and good teams make each other better. 

 

If a coach had to have NHL experience to get a NHL coaching job, the league would run out of coaches. Your logic makes zero sense. The only thing I can figure at this point is that you are trolling.

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

 

Very classy IMO to come back and take questions

#2609477 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Posted by Jacksoni on 21 May 2015 - 02:38 PM

This kid is the nicest prospect we got, great news. But hold your horses, he should stay in GR and be groomed. He needs to spend alot of time in the gym doing squats and bench presses coupled with slow overeating. 172 pounds wont cut it, not even in the Ahl. Add 15-20 pounds of beef, 2 years of training and we have a a top center.

Ok...where is the video or quote for this one???

Twitter, I think but here's a CBC article. And he didn't say that he would be revealed, he just said don't leave a good situation.

Can I take it back to when the political thread was still around?  ;)




#2608651 Report: Oilers hire McLellan

Posted by darkmanx on 19 May 2015 - 07:29 PM

This is kind of ancient in today's terms of social media but no threads on this ... because we are all in a frenzy about Babwatch.

 

Anyhow, as you all know by now, Oilers announced hiring of McLellan.  Great choice, classy coach.  Oilers will be a force to be wreckoned with in 2-3 years.  Anyone know the dollars and terms?  

 

http://oilers.nhl.co...s.htm?id=768169

 

P.S. Oilers didn't even request official permission to talk to Babcock.  

 

Yea right after the next 3 1st overall picks.

This just in - Buffalo fans have learned how to edit wikipedia.

 

Awesome! 

 

We should have a #babwatch #babswatch photoshop war.

Just saw this on twitter.

This is what $50Mil in hype will do to a desperate fanbase.

It's hilarious tho.

Even better than no seeds in a watermelon laffy taffy.

BREAKING: Sources indicate Mike Babcock nearing a decision on lunch. Chipotle filed paperwork with DET late last week. #babswatch
