Great post, Drew. I wish players could read it before puck drop today.

@ThroatShot @drw91 he sure did, answering some Russian reporter questions, in Russian.
But back to our series: NHL needs some 'miracle comeback' story, and this is the story in making.
1 year, 11 months ago on Recap: Game 7 Awaits
If you guys think this series is not fixed by NHL, think again. Game 7? How, do you think, it'll be called?
It was a nice run, but small people in suits want us to exit here.
@ThroatShot With the same coach and GM out there, and a few older useless guys taking up roster spots and/or up for a contract, what makes you think that ANYTHING will change next year? Babcock shall be in a Hall of Fame this year for his phenomenal stubbornness and KH - for overall delusions. I watched his interview after loss to Vancouver - he did say that next year 'we got Sammy coming back'. I thought I am hallucinating.. but I was not, he did say that.

@ThroatShot there is not much sense in KH wish of 'just making playoffs'. They'll play 4, maybe 5 more games and be done. No energy, no thinking, very robot-like plays. And I'm not talking robots made in Japan. These are made in China.
2 years ago on Red Wings vs Flames Recap: 4.17.2013
This roster is brutal to watch. Even when we get a lead I wait for them to find a way to lose. Doesn't matter if we have back-to-back games or 3 days off in between - they consistently fail to perform at a competitive level in the first period and habitually make stupid stupid mistakes that cost them games. So tired of hearing the same comments over and over from Babcock and the players. They should just apologize to the fans for their pathetic play and end the interview.
I'm just going to paste some comments from MLive, which, I think, sum it up:
Babcock has to go for being too stubborn. Look at what he says about Abby – the most improved player and a great compliment for Datsyuk. Well then why does Abby have 2 assists in 43 games? TWO! I don’t care if Pav likes playing with him because it doesn’t work. Pav himself has just 6 even-strength goals this year. On pace for his lowest total ever. So this duo is a total failure. Plain and simple. How many close games have we lost this year when one extra goal from that line would be the difference?
Same with Cleary. He has 5 assists all season. Tatar and Nyquist have played 25 less games, and in those games about 5 minutes less per game, and they both have 3 assists. And aren't -8 either. Last night was embarrassing to watch Dan Cleary play hockey.
And yet Babcock is so patient with these two non-producers. I dunno. If you put Pav with Nyquist and Andersson for 43 games I think they would easily produce more than the awful combinations Babcock has used. Between that and the nonsense decision to dump Tatar and the nonsense decision to keep scratching Tootoo when the team lacks energy. I dunno. I think you have to fire him. Offer him a chance to quit with dignity. And then try someone else.
@Jay Argentina well.. Dats was hit knee on knee before that.. we don't know the impact of that yet.

I think out Uncle Mike is a stubborn, ahem... individual, wearing this t-shirt at night: https://www.lolshirts.com/shirt/5152621782d/no-t-shirt#close-facebox
@ThroatShot 'Franzen' and 'rushes' do not belong on the same sentence, period. Slow, lazy SOB.
Tatar and Andersson getting benched in the 3rd? I don't know what our coach is smoking, but I want some. His stubbornness is unbelievable. And, he makes sure that Pavel will not resign with the Wings by providing No's 8 and 11 for him to babysit. It's ironic, that former Professor's number is on Abby's back. Wooden hands and no brain usage...

@brandik1313 @Jordan_Reis Kronwall is not #1 or 2 D material. He does not think well or quick enough. His first pass is awful most of the time.
pretty funny one off the twitter: HBO 24/7 has also been canceled, after NHL owners insisted on renegotiating it down to 22/9.

Salary cut and salary rollback is not the same. If they make players to rollback salaries, say, 20%, the salary cap will be reduced the same 20%, and no one will be 'cutting' $$ from payroll.

Even if NASH matches (and that's a big if), Weber will collect his two signing bonuses ($26 mln) and requests/demands to be traded in a year. I don't him staying in Nash for 14 years with no cup and damaged relationship w/management.
You can't fix stupid (talking about Columbus GM). Just stay away..

Does anyone have any idea why Stuart's rights are not traded for some picks?
@ThroatShot well, he is one of a kind 3rd line center
3 years ago on Pour Me Some Whiskey: Our Season is Over | April
@Reddy the thing is - I know the guy personally:)
I also wonder, if we can trade Mike Babcock for Todd McLellan. Todd 'knows the system' and he pretty much exhausted it all at SJ, just like Babs has at Detroit.
@ThroatShot I thought our playoff run was over when Helm went down, but that's me.
@JOHNxJOHN his mind certainly wasn't there, I can hardly blame him for that (family always comes first). Wings could have traded him at the deadline. Now, I believe, he'll just leave as a free agent. No longer can 'trade' Stuart.
@Tnhgeno Mule is signed until 2020. No chance to lose him, I doubt he is a trade material too, given his sketchy performance.
Agree on all proposed changes. Will Uncle Mike make them? Hell no.

Out of three games we have to win, two will be played on 'sand and grave;' rather than ice, with puck jumping as ping-pong ball. We just have to get lucky there.
rare occasion when the refs were not against us.. same disappointing result.

@Reddy @marti783 with the way the NHL is treating Wings, there always will be 'next year' seems like.

oh, Brad Watson. Nice. It adds to my take on the series outcome. He has a long anti-Detroit history.
3 years ago on Detroit vs Nashvile: Game 2 | April
my take on the lack of Weber's suspension is simple - this year the League is trying to propel Nashville into the Finals. This explains the bogus calls during Game 1, and future calls/dissallowed goals/whatever else they can come up with to ensure Nashville victory. In other words, this series is 'fixed', my friends. What are you gonna do about that?
