They weren't largely outplaying them.

 

Semantical.  They had that series in the bag, and they were outplaying the Rangers for significant stretches in several of the games.

Failing to close a series on three games in a row is an absolute choke job.  You have no basis to really argue otherwise.

I don't think Washington choked. I really don't. Even up 3-1, I thought the Rangers had a better chance to win the series. I don't think it's a choke losing to the President's trophy winners.


Sorry. You're up 3-1 and largely outplaying the Rangers and drop 3 in a row. That's a choke job.

Theres rumours floating (which are obviously just rumours) saying that toronto and carolina are talking. The rumoured deal would be kessel + kadri for 5th overall + semin.

Im not saying i believe the rumour. But for the sake of argument (cause really theres nothing else to talk about anymore until the draft lol)

Would it be a good or bad thing for us that toronto has the 4th and 5th pick. Means they'd pick strome or marner 100% sure right? Or they might just decide to pick one of the 2 and then hanifin or crouse to balance things out with a different kind of player?

I guess it all comes down to whos going 3rd


That's a horrible trade for Toronto.

What's so special about Babcock? Honest question. I don't know a lot about him. Is he getting too much credit for the team around him or is he the reason for Detroits success over the years?


I think it's fair to wonder. A lot of the Wings success is premised on organizational philosophy and development. I think Babcock wants a new challenge too but I also think he sees a couple of his centerpiece guys getting old too. Babcock gets a lot of credit as a motivator and teacher but I think he's as vulnerable on adjustments and strategy as any coach is.

For those however who think Babcock and Holland don't have their mind numbing pet favorites that drives even Red Wings fans insane you can see Dan Cleary and Kyle Quincey as evidence that says otherwise.
