Weber, Mason And Trotz Talk Wings

Paul here for George, who believes he has a case of food poisining.

Josh Cooper of The Tennessean talked with the Predators after the game last night.

Does Weber ever get rid of his game-face?

Trotz looked like he was on the edge of tears.  Goodbye Bubba.  I won’t miss you or your scum fans.

Random thought-

Swap ol’ Melon Head Trotz with Babbles.

Extrapolate (and other fancy words) how a season would turn out.

Discuss.  grin

A little Howkey Tawk with Pawl Bawldwin smile

I think we’ve already seen how as season would turn out if Babs coached a less talented, but still hard working team.  He took Anaheim and made them a grinding force for a year or two, and even without Guigere turning in a playoff perfomance he would never replicate, they were still a frustrating team to play against, especially at home.

As far as Trotz coaching the Wings, its tough to tell.  Is Trotz’s system something that he believes is what makes champs, or is it something he’s forced to implement because of the many years with less talent than many other teams?  If this is his system, and he forced it on Detroit, than I think the Wings would not fair well, because they have drafted towards skill rather than size, and the forwards like a free form flow to the game, at least in the O zone, rather than a rigid trapping and grinding style.

If he was willing to adjust his system to the Wings current roster, I think he could definitely teach them something about attacking the middle of the ice, and going to the net in waves, instead of one and done attempts.  IMO, he’d make a great assistant coach in Detroit, at the very least.

I think Shea Weber really, really, really hates Datsyuk and Captain Hank.  Really, really, really hates. 

That is a very unhappy locker room.  Can we give Ryan Suter an honorary Hart Trophy for clearly being the Most Valuable Player to his (previous) hockey team?  Also, Shae Weber really hates Pav and Z.
