#2369190 Babcock: Is he the right guy going forward?

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 15 March 2013 - 01:17 AM

I'm sorry but this is so typical. Team starts under-performing and now all of the sudden the coach needs to take a hike. This is classic fandom in the works. Babs makes one confusing move (Abby-Dats-Cleary) that the fans don't like and all of the sudden he needs to be replaced? Keep your heads on.

For all we know Abby walked into his office and said: "I can be that next PWF if u'd let me", and Mike said: "Ok, this is a gap year, an experimentation year, lets see what you got." Gives him a shot in the top 6 and it didn't workout. Big whoop.

Abby's still young somewhat young for hockey, doesn't hurt to experiment with your young guys.

I'm not claiming to be anything special, but I swear half of LGW would be worse than Garth Snow.... but still, it's the only forum I come to

 

You're right of course.

 

Hell Scotty Bowman wouldn't be more than .500 right now with this group.  The coach can only do so much and these are allegedly professionals here.

 

When this forum accepts the fact that the losses due to FA and retirement mean this team isn't anywhere near talented enough to really be a contender, that will be the day that LGW and threads like this one become more bearable.

 

Reality check time, this team is mediocre.

#2352510 Howard = Average

Howard would start for at least 25 other teams.  Get a grip.




#2349524 coach disagrees with refs - hilarious

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 01 February 2013 - 01:32 AM

Some people in this thread need to seriously lighten up....

 

Refs are by nature incompetent.




#2345759 Everyone chill out!

I was doing a little research and looking back at the last lockout shortened season.  Everyone keeps saying how important is it to "get off to a good start or it'll be over before you know it".  While it never hurts to get off to a good start, I'm much more interested in how things end.  In 1995, the NJ Devils started off 0-3-1, were below .500 for about half the season, finished a little over .500 and made the playoffs.  In May and June they went 16-4 and won the Stanley Cup.  If you like to be pessimistic, then by all means, keep whining about the slow start, but how well they're playing in January means nothing, even in a short season, and there's the proof.

It's good to stay positive, but let's be realistic.  This team can't come within 10 light years of the defense that Devils team played.

Time to call up the kids.  They look old, slow and tired.  And with no Homer, there is NO ONE in front of the net, isn't that right Mr. Franzen?

I'm not sure which is worse: the over-reacting or the self-rigtheous why-don't-you-just-quit-then responses to it.

 

Both - and the usual suspects are playing their roles as usual too....

#2342233 1/19: Red Wings 0 at St. Louis Blues 6

Seriously, it is one game! STEP AWAY FROM THE LEDGE!!!!

 

I'm the last one to be on the ledge.  I'm WATCHING Columbus do to Nashville what STL is doing to Detroit and we know how Nashville plays too.  Unless Detroit figures out something and fast, they aren't beating anyone in the division.

 

The Wings have lost too much and it's too much for Z and Datsyuk to handle on their own.  This team has the least amount of talent on it since the mid 80s at the very least, so yes, it's not far off to say this is the worst Wings team in nearly 30 years.  Reality, it sucks, doesn't it?




#2341643 Battle of Pennsylvania (Philly vs Pittsburgh)

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 19 January 2013 - 05:06 PM

If I were a Pens fan BLARGH

Sorry lets try that again, I vomited in my mouth. If I were a Pens fan, I would still be sick of it always being The Crosby Show. There are a lot of other guys on that team, and last time I checked Crosby doesn't play wing, center, D, and goalie on all four lines. It would get old.

Please, NHL, NBC, WHOEVER stop shoving Crosby down my throat. You're gonna get the bill for my treatment of tonsil herpes.

 

Here's the deal though - a great deal of the Penguins fanbase idolize the pedophile-enabling Joe Pedterno as well.  So some hero-worshipping is already deeply engrained within their fanbase.

according to douchecanoe, now the pens are the fastest team in the NHL and blah blah blah blah




#2319383 Holland Content with Current Roster

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 16 July 2012 - 03:49 AM

I still don't see that, the owners are businessmen and they know that they lost a lot of good will with the fans the last lockout, another lockout they may as well trade their NHL teams for WNBA teams.


Never underestimate the collective stupidity of a group of people who have money to burn.


#2302122 The truth of our decline.

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 18 May 2012 - 07:50 PM

Good post Richdg. I wouldn't worry about all the neggs you get on the comments. Since I've been here, I have noticed many a Wing fan either incapable or unwilling to face the fact that it will soon be time to rebuild and that we aren't a dynasty anymore. Sadly, even when you give them the facts and throw the numbers in their faces, you still wont get them to be realistic about it. Of course we all want to see Detroit be a dominant force in the league and compete for cups year after year. But when you look at the facts and look at the numbers, it's not there and it's easy to see the decline. Thanks for the reality check.


I think you are mostly correct, but until they don't make the playoffs and/or accumulate 100 points in the regular season, the dynasty is still intact, although it's power is clearly waning.

The Wings need an infusion of youth and talent in the top 6. I think any Wings fan should be able to see that.

Thank you Lids.

If this is your last game in a Wings jersey, thank you for making literally 2/3rds of my life enjoyable from October to May almost every single year. An epitome of physical and mental clarity and consistency. If you do go, you will be greatly missed on the ice and in the locker room.

Godspeed.
