“It’s up to you guys to call for younger players to play, and it’s up to me to give the “tie” to the vet”.

“It’s up to you guys to call for the best team to be iced, and it’s up to me to play Dan Cleary”.

“It’s up to you guys to praise a player for having a good game, and it’s up to me to scratch him then the very next game for absolutely no reason whatsoever”.


....This is a fun game.

And yet it was up to Ken Holland to re-sign Dan Cleary after Mike Babcock already went off to other pastures…

Yeah, Cleary is really hurting this team right now. Do you have pictures of Holland all over your bedroom? Your obsession with him is frightening.

Garth, like Murray, has a man-crush on Babs, the coach of the last-place team in the NHL

And yet Jeff Blashill did not pay Dan Cleary and sent him to Grand Rapids, even after Ken Holland signed him again.  Just like Mike Babcock could have, but did not…

Did I bring anything up or did I simply correct someone who was placing the blame in the wrong place?

Right, it’s my man crush on Babcock that makes people forget that HOLLAND is the one who kept re-signing Cleary after Babcock was gone.

Go back to crying about what a meanie Babcock was.

Good point, because Babcock clearly played Cleary over others right?  And not just when he had to?

You crybabies who keep blaming Babcock for Holland’s horrible management -EVEN AFTER BABCOCK IS GONE- are pathetic.
