Ken Holland assembled a joke of a Blue Line corps, and here is how it looks in the playoffs.

I don't know how Don cherry is still allowed to talk on TV.


The same way that Eddie Olczyk is allowed to be on all Pens and Hawks games nationally.

Sorry guys, Blash did not display a good coaching job in this game. It was pretty bad. 

#2619698 Hoggan, Paetsch, and Grant resigned...

Last time I checked he's not playing for the Red Wings, he's playing for Grand Rapids.
Also what does this have to do with Holland?

The Wings have assumed GM responsibilities for the Griffs for a few years now.

#2617154 Datsyuk Has Ankle Surgery

Posted by evilmrt on 28 June 2015 - 08:32 PM

I'm glad this is getting taken care of now, and not mid-season. I wish him a speedy and full recovery.

The silver lining is that now Larkin can push for a spot during those first 9 games before he has to be sent down. That will take them to October 30th. Dats should be fine by then. No worries.

#2614217 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by evilmrt on 13 June 2015 - 03:09 PM

And back on topic, no. No to Fedorov. No to Osgood, or Datsyuk, or Zetterberg. Jersey retirement should be something truly special, and none of them are.

This forum has sunk to a new low thanks to the likes of you.

Datsyuk is an amazing player, one of the best currently playing in the world today. Any sane hockey fan or expert OR PLAYER would agree.

#2614024 Here we go AGAIN - Coyotes, part DUH!

Posted by evilmrt on 11 June 2015 - 03:08 PM

We actually moved out the beginning of the year. Funny thing was it was warmer in MI the day we left than it was the day we arrived in Phoenix. Heat hasnt been to bad. Doubt we will hate it more than 5 months if Michigan winter.

The good thing about Arizona is that you can always escape the brutal heat by driving north 90 minutes. Or enjoy some snow in winter and leave at the end of the day and go back to the Valley.

Anyway, the Coyotes saga is a mess. The only way this team can be saved is if they leave Glendale and move back downtown or to hatch a plan to share a new rink with the Sun Devils, who need to build one pretty soon anyway. The location doomed them from the start.

#2609401 Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

Posted by evilmrt on 21 May 2015 - 12:55 PM

This gets brought up a lot, and I don't think its fair to Bylsma. Their 'embarrassing effort and collapse' was a 1-0 loss to CANADA in the semi's, a hard fought match that could've gone either way. They were there to avenge a loss from four years ago, which is probably why they didn't care about bronze.
Not saying Bylsma is a great coach, not saying Bylsma over Blashill, nor am I denying that the talent he's had was a huge part of his success. All I'm saying is that his performance at the Olympics wasn't a complete disaster.

The bronze game is exactly what I'm talking about. Its the Olympics...you don't throw a baby tantrum and stop trying because you can only get a Bronze. THAT was the embarrassment and I partially blame Bylsma. It betrays character issues. Keep him away from this team.

#2609295 Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

Posted by evilmrt on 21 May 2015 - 07:30 AM

Bylsma is madly overrated. Players like him, but a good coach will coach circles around the guy. 

Since everyone is singing Babs' praises about his Olympic record, we should do well to remember Blysma preciding over the embarrassing effort and collapse of Team USA at the Olympics last year. That was a good roster.

#2608382 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by evilmrt on 18 May 2015 - 04:14 PM

I agree.  Just let this idiot go and name Blashill as our new coach with Dan Cleary and Nicklas Lidstrom as assistant coaches.  How freaking hard is that?  

Lids as assistant coach....holy sheeot. Huge upgrade.

#2608168 Prospect Tourney in Traverse City renamed after Matt Wuest

Posted by evilmrt on 17 May 2015 - 10:23 AM

Better article:


Wings assistant general manager Ryan Martin remembers when he first met Wuest.

"I was introduced to him my first month on the job, 10 years ago, by Jim Nill," Martin told the Free Press. Nill was the assistant GM in Detroit before becoming GM of the Dallas Stars. "He had a tremendous amount of passion for the Wings. His Red Wings Central site was incredibly thorough."

Shortly after launching CapGeek, which became a resource for NHL clubs and fans for detailed contract information about every team's players, Martin and Wuest again talked regularly.

"We had a little bit of a relationship," Martin said, "and he reached out to me in the process of doing due diligence, asked me about rules and issues regarding the salary cap.

"Over the years, and I told him this, he knew the ins and outs of the CBA better than some people who work for some of the teams. The amount of time he put into maintaining the site was second to none."

Honoring Wuest at the prospect tournament, an eight-team event that precedes Detroit's main training camp, made sense, given Wuest's passion for the next generation of NHLers. "He wrote a lot of articles about the tournament," Martin said, "and he tracked statistics before there was a more centralized system.

"It's a great honor to memorialize him and remember his impact on the Wings and the NHL community."
