#2409272 Babcock tells players they are soft. Pushes them to play better.

Good article, thanks for posting. The point about Babs learning from Bowman and his ability to adapt is exactly why this team is even in the playoffs. I think what was required to adapt was harder than Babs imagined, but he's finally pulled it off and here we are in the second round. Many coaches can never overcome things like that. 

#2409137 Dats has no talent according to this guy?

Posted by evilmrt on 22 May 2013 - 01:56 AM

Conpletely misunderstood. He meant that Datsyuk was not just born with every talent but works very hard as well. Healey is a Wings/babcock fan. He just didnt articulate himself very well.


I think so too, you see the reaction from the rest of the guys is kind of like "haha...um wtf?" and then they must realize he trips over his words regularly, and give him a pass and move on. 


Pretty stupid though. Like NBC stupid. 

#2409136 Big 3rd Period Come From Behind Win. Griffins Heading to Conf. Finals

But but but he was supposed to have taken Jimmys job!!!!


That stickwork looks exactly like a younger Jimmy, so why not? Jimmy's stickwork still blows...lol

I remember someone saying that if they're eliminated from the playoffs, that means Tatar can somehow return to the NHL.  Not sure if that's correct.


I wish them luck, but at the same time, would rather have Tatar back than wish them luck.


He'd make us even better.  




I don't think it matters, didn't Lashoff go back and forth to GR during the playoffs already? I think it's more about keeping Tatar in a spot where he can lead the entire team through the AHL playoffs. Its not just about him, he's allowing the entire team to have a deep playoff run, furthering development.

Who the hell choses these?  :lol:

#2405746 WCSF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 4, (CHI leads series 1-0)

Posted by evilmrt on 15 May 2013 - 11:56 PM

That was one of the most heartless, passionless, gutless playoff performances I've ever seen from the Wings. Sleepwalking. Somebody better wake them up and tell them the series started.


Did you see the Game 7 comeback by the Bruins the other night? Less than half the 3rd period was left, and they were down by 3, not two. They were playing like crap, looked like they had given up. But, they got their chit together, focused, and bounced back for the win. Why don't the Wings seem to have that kind of character? 


Everyone says it was a Leafs collapse...I say it was an inexperienced team shellshocked by thef****** dragon the Bruins suddenly turned into with 9 minutes left in the game.

Great result, excited to finally see Z light it up with TWO goals. 


Not thrilled with Smith...again...

#2398883 Norris Finalists announced: Letang, Subban, Suter

Posted by evilmrt on 07 May 2013 - 02:17 PM

Who? Subban? A Norris finalist?


You mean that guy that nobody here wanted when he was an RFA holdout? 

#2398719 WCQF Game 4 GDT : Ducks 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT) - (Series tied, 2-2)

This win must have been a coaching victory. Babs somehow got the kids to (mostly) focus. Hopefully it can work again.

Lashoff, though... dunno if I've seen a player with so much potential make such dumb mistakes randomly. Kid needs to start meditating or something.

lashoff can score to make up for crashing into Howie and causing the last Ducks goal

Posted by evilmrt on 04 May 2013 - 03:07 AM

I'd rather these two teams go to 7, and beat each other up. 


Dunno what is up with the pro-Sharks crowd in here. You guys are weird.
