Bert with the screen. Babcock may actually know what he is doing despite the constant hate he gets.

Where did I say andersson is good? The guy is a plug as well
Jurco is what we need as we struggle to score goals, not a slow,defensively liable, useless turnover machine prone to taking penalties against the best PP in the league..... the guy brings down whatever line he plays on

That line has done nothing in this series. Mixing it up by giving bert a shot for one game wont matter and most likely boosts ourpower play a bit.

I certainly don't mean to suggest (or sound like I'm suggesting) that there's something wrong with making the playoffs, or that it's not an accomplishment.  I'm saying that failing to acknowledge (and to the extent possible, rectify) existing issues or mistakes, simply because we've made the playoffs, is not an especially productive way to approach getting over the hump.  For instance, if I say "I think Holland and Babs have an issue because one keeps acquiring players that the other doesn't use", and you reply "Whoot!  We made the playoffs didn't we?  23 Baby!", then a real issue is glossed over which could potentially cost us.  In this instance, the problem may well have cost us a very promising young prospect for nothing as I'd be amazed if Legwand resigns given that he waived his NTC to come to a team only to be demoted to the fourth line after having (nearly) career best year. 


But nobody seems to give a s*** because hey...23 Baby!


Why do so many think Babcock is Jack Adams worthy...are most people crazy, are we all missing something?


Are you saying that ice time for Holland acquisitions is your main issue with Babcock or was that just an example?  Who are these players that aren't getting used that Holland wants used more?  I'm sure that Holland didn't sign Samuellson and Cleary thinking that would play as bad as they did...and once they failed to perform, I doubt that Holland is sitting there going "Why oh Why are Cleary and Samuellson riding the pine."  


Legwand played heavy minutes helping us to get into the playoffs and now his icetime has been reduced a bit with people getting healthy but he still played 14 minutes last game.  You can argue you don't like his role currently, but to say that Holland is acquiring players that Babcock doesn't use just isn't accurately portraying the situation.

So we need a new coach, a new GM, a new top Dman, a new top scorer, and a new starting goalie? Agreed?
Do we need a new logo too?

You would think the team has missed the playoffs for 23 straight years given the commentary on this forum.

Next year's needs?  A new coach.

A few days ago people wanted him to win the Jack Adams. Difficult for coaching to overcome the talent gap between the two teams. Despite this forums strange beliefs, there is no magic line combo that will turn the Wings into Cup favorites.

This forum has become pretty laughable with all the bashing that goes on here.
