Nice Mike Babock…The Clock Is Ticking

Because, honsestly? The talent on this team does not equal the record.

And it hasn't for two years.

Jeff Blashill is a product of Ken Holland.

And some on this site actually recommend Todd Nelson? Haven't we played that song before? At what point do you admit to yourself that your infatuation with Holland and his "team of advisors" is just not competent?

No.

Fire Holland Fire Blashill. Fire anyone remotely responsible for the state of this team. Loyalty ends where incompetency begins.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Fire Ken Holland. And don't stop there

The thing I like about Todd Nelson is that he isn’t a born-and-bred Red Wing. He’s bounced around and most recently was in the Oilers’ organization as the Oklahoma City Thunder’s coach and then the Oilers’ interim coach. He’s got connections to the Griffins, but he brought in a lot of his own guys to GR, and he’s loyal to his people (see: Matt Ford, for example).

I know why the Wings have empty seats in the lower bowl but what’s Florida’s excuse.

Jimmy Howard the undisputed number 1.  Goaltending hasn’t been one of the main problems, or a problem at all.

And, hóla, cabrónes.

And as I say that it’s a free-for-all on Howard.

Yeah… man, getting in the way of a Frk shot is a dangerous proposition.

man that is harsh when you’re a man down and they still call it. Bad deal. Would be pissed if it was against the Wings.

That’s a damn good question. That should be another penalty on them for too many men.

How many years can the Wings continue with a crap PP?

Posted by Valek from Chicago on 10/28/17 at 06:36 PM ET

Alan's avatar

I’m a little disappointed that the same PP was out there for the entire 5 on 3.

That looked like the exact same thing the Florida defender did a few seconds earlier.  These refs are all over the place in the first.
