All Bob Murray

On the Detroit series
I didn’t expect to have meetings with players at this moment. But we got beat. We got schooled. We got schooled by a very good playoff team and they schooled us from top to bottom, and it’s something we have to deal with here going forward. We got beat.

On losing Toni Lydman to injury
Losing Toni Lydman in this series really hurt more than you guys will ever know. He could play against two great players. He knew how to play against Datsyuk and Zetterberg. That was a big blow to us. They beat us. We have to get better.

On what changes need to be made
As I’m standing here today, I’m telling you it won’t be the same team next year. We made a lot of good steps, we’ve got a lot of good kids, but it will not be the same next year. I promise you that. It’s not good enough. It’s not good enough.

THATS what makes Abby on the top line effective.  Not that he should go out an injure guys on purpose, but his hard physical play against the guy who was beating up our star guys REALLY helped put away that series.  Even more-so than scoring goals, his physical play lets the skill of Pav and Z come through.  When he’s playing like he does for the US in the worlds, he’s a beast.  4th line unmotivated Abby sucks.  Motivated Abby is clutch.

And we lost 65DD to a cheap slash, Murray.  STFU.

I thought he ended up breaking his thumb going into the boards? Is there conclusive video one way or the other?

As for telling Murray to, “STFU”, you didn’t like this line?

Nah, gimme Keith all day.  Would LOVE to see his Havlat impression.

First time he tries to throw a flying elbow, he needs a beat down. Kronwalled, Tootoo’ed, Abby’d.. I don’t care.

Next year is a tough year salary cap-wise, because we’re dropping down to 64.3, and I’m paying 26% of that to Gutsless and Tinkerbell.

There. Fixed that for ya, Bob.

I did love the part where he says he’ll play golf with Selanne, let him beat him, and then talk about a new contract. Pretty funny.
