#2605924 All Purpose Grand Rapids Griffins Thread

Posted by evilmrt on 04 May 2015 - 01:52 PM

 

And one player, former No. 1 pick Anthony Mantha, has not come close to meeting expectations.

"Very, very, very disappointing," said Wings Senior Vice President Jim Devellano, who saw the Griffins play their final three games, including Sunday's 3-1 win, over the Toronto Marlies. "And I say that with a lot of sadness. Coming out of junior, we had such high hopes for him."

 

What the fracking frack????

 

Devellano should shut the hell up and retire. Mantha is a struggling kid and he doesn't need to be embarrassed by the Wings front office. 

 

I guess they've given up on him already. Wow. Total BS.

#2605145 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by evilmrt on 30 April 2015 - 05:58 PM

After what Babcock said last night, about not being as good anymore (despite making a 7 point improvement over last year, and taking the highest scoring team in the league to 7 games), mentioning the ages of Dats, Z, and Kronwall, and asking who's going to replace Pavs, I'd like to see him go. We have a lot of great young players on the team now and coming up soon, if Babcock doesn't think he can win here, then bring someone in who knows he will.
 
If Babcock wants to start nit picking, I'd like to point out he was here 10 years, and for 7 of those years he had the best defenseman since Bobby Orr, and only won 1 Cup... Dats, Z, and Kronwall have a few more good years left, and with Tatar, Nyquist, Abby, Helm, DeKeyser, Smith, Mrazek, Mantha, Larkin, Jurco, Marchenko, Ouellet, Sheahan, Pulkkinen, Glendening, etc. all in their 20's, we're going to be good for a while.


Are you blind? There is no heir apparent for the level Dats is on; only potential with Mantha and Larkin achieving that status. We have already started to see that Mantha will project a little less than everyone hoped. Babs is unhappy with roster management and rightly so. We should all be concerned for what happens in 3 seasons.

Because he's won a ton of games under arguably the worst possible conditions.  And because he's done so with a roster that's about 1/5 as good as our current one.   
 
Fun fact.  You know how many 80 point players Dave Tippett has coached in his entire career?  Two.  Mike Ribeiro and Mike Modano.  You know how many 80 point players Mike Babcock coached on the 2005 Red Wings alone?  Four. 
 
Think about that.  The best players he's ever coached..ever...were Modano, Ribiero, and Yandle.  His best goalie was Bryzgalov. BRYZGALOV!


You're absolutely right. Tippet got a mostly garbage team to the conference finals in 2012, and they lost to the Cup winners. He might want to skip out on Arizona's rebuild...and Detroit would be an upgrade for him. He could probably squeeze more out of this Wings roster than Babcock.

Babs looks like he's going to choke the idiot behind the bench out right then and there. 




#2593977 ECQF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings at Tampa Bay Lightning, 7:30 EST

Apparently a Tampa area blogger published an article bashing the city of Detroit and the lightning website and Twitter posted it.... So, this guy wrote a perfect comeback article.

http://detroitsports... Bay vs Detroit

Stay classy, Tampa Bay.

 

The detroit blogger is reaching a bit. A slice of Little Caesars vs a Cuban sandwich? Seriously? That blogger has no fracking taste buds  :lol:

 

Also, no love for Matty Moron's Ambassador Bridge. Ship everything associated with the guy to Mars.

Posted by evilmrt on 05 April 2015 - 10:51 PM

How about they actually make the playoffs? 




#2587809 3/31 GDT : Senators 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Posted by evilmrt on 01 April 2015 - 11:45 AM

I know it's part of the speculation, but why the hell would Babbers want to go to Toronto? That place is a dumpster fire year after year. Money I guess would be the only feasible reason.

 

They'll probably offer him a higher degree of authority than the Wings are, due to KH's tenure. Babs would find that very attractive.
