The problem is not Babcock. The problem is the lack of synergy between Holland and Babcock. Holland doesn't give Babs the kind of team he openly asks for and needs. WTF do you think will happen in that situation?
the biggest issue i have with the holland critics is that most of them completely gloss over the good moves holland has made and only focus on the bad ones, in particular the hossa and franzen situation.
Holland never gets credit for giving osgood another chance after the lockout when everyone said he was washed up
he never gets credit for signing datsyuk long term right after the lockout ended. this board was calling for holland's head after that one. datsyuk is now arguably the league's best player.
he never gets credit for trading for brad stuart during the cup winning season. he turned out to be our number 2 dman for 3 years after that
he never gets credit for going out and getting rafalski the day after Schneider left back in the summer of 07
these are all moves that directly helped the wings win a cup but i never see any of the holland critics ever give him credit for these moves
These were all moves while Scotty was right there beside Kenny. Come on, it is weird, isn't it?
Even if we make the finals against PIT, we can't compete with that.... although u never know these days
This is what GMs are supposed to be thinking about. On paper, we're no match for that lineup. Thankfully, weird things always happen in the second season. Still, a GM should not count on it and sit on his ass while others assemble teams like that.
Last I heard they are filming season 3 right now, it is set to come out Fall of this year. It will consist of 3 additional episodes, considering the length of the episodes, this was kind of to be expected. I'm looking forward to seeing more.
There is a lack of recent information about it, assuming it's because Watson was filming for The Hobbit but I haven't heard otherwise that it isn't still on the way.
Sad... Murph was a goof, but he was our goof. We make fun of his broadcasts a lot, but not because they're bad. He's just goofy, and you kind of knew he was just being himself in front of the camera. He also enjoyed what he was doing, and was enthusiastic.
