I can't speak for other fans, but the only person that matters knows what he's capable of... Jeff Blashill. The fact that, like you said, Babcock made Pulkkinen believe that he should fire the puck from anywhere any chance he gets, is just another point to how Babcock completely misused certain players. I have faith that Blash will use both Pulkkinen and Jurco to their full potential, something Babcock never seemed capable of doing...
Brendan smith doesn't have a longterm future in detroit especially with marchenko ouellet jensen sproul waiting to get a shot
He could very possibly be dealt to toronto this off season in a deal for Phaneuf ... Just watching yesterday's hockeycentral and there saying Phaneuf wanted to be a wing and was feeling like s*** when he wasn't dealt to the wings on deadline day
Anyway you look at it smith will be gone in 1-2 yrs
Well, after 1 period I think it's safe to say that if we play our game we definitely have a shot at winning this series. Bruins are getting away with a lot of mugging and crosschecks that I hope will be called when we get different refs.
Stat-wise, I jest I jest, but I wouldn't miss Franzen/Hudler if they just left for nothing...I simply dislike them both, but I won't argue with their stats...
...why are you so sure that Semin would be a healthy scratch for 20 games or so?
Semin isn't known for his work ethics. He's known to take weeks off. That won't fly well with Babcock. I don't think Semin and Babcock would get along too well... especially if Semin becomes a disgruntled locker room cancer.

Switch Holmstrom and Miller around since that worked last game.
Should be an easy win for us, Edmonton is still Edmonton and they'll show that they are on a slippery slope and it'll just get even slicker. It doesn't matter if you were well Oiled to start the season, it's all about how you're playing now, and Detroit has the Wings of fortune behind them at this moment.
