Turns out the U.S. broadcasts will have rotating announcers. Like Forslund is doing game 3 in east. Then Albert doing 4. Doc going to Chicago for games 3-4.

I guess that's good in a way. Still doesn't change the fact that Albert sucks. He's ok at football but just not good at hockey. I sure hope Strader is getting paid well cause he left his full time gig with the Coyotes to go exclusively to NBCSN.

So according to reports, Babcock reached out to San Jose for this meeting this week. His "complaints" after game 7 about where is the next Datsyuk ring true in SJ too. If Detroit's window has closed, San Jose's has too. I don't see how that team would be better than here.

Dave Hakstol is the new coach of the Flyers....yup. Very interested to see what the deal was with Babs. Did they not want to even try? Did someone not like him (hextall or Snyder)? Did Babs want nothing to do with them? But there ya go.

Sorry, my phone blew up cause like 10 of the people I follow on twitter retweeted the Flyers post. Maybe he works out. Who the hell knew who Babcock was before 2002-03? Who knew who Jon Cooper was? Right now it seems very odd though.

Per twitter, he's the first coach to go straight from NCAA to NHL in 28 years.

On one article I was reading someone asked a very good question. Why is that? Why don't more coaches make the jump? Anyone have any input or guesses as to why that would be?

I think it's because traditionally, college is not the path to the NHL. We're seeing more of it now, but it's generally been (and still is, although not quite as predominantly) that the way to the NHL is through juniors.

As it becomes more and more proven that NCAA programs and coaches can manufacture NHL players, more and more NCAA coaches will get NHL jobs.

CBJ will announce a captain for the first time since the Nash trade on Wednesday.

A lot of people think it will be Foligno, I think it could be Dubinsky or Hartnell though.

Totally gonna be Clarkson.

Were it not for last season, I'd be listing Ryan Murray as a candidate. I agree on the Foligno thing. I think they went a long way last year during the all-star game to set him up as a face of the franchise. Dubinsky's got the makings of an NHL captain as well.

To me, it sure seems like Foligno.

Awesome to hear Elliotte Friedman here in MI on the radio. His thinking about Babs is my thinking, that if winning now is the biggest thing, Detroit makes the most sense. He did say St Louis of course would make sense now but wasn't sure they'd give the money that Detroit could. He doesn't think Babcock, with wanting to win so badly, would want Toronto because they are probably 4-5 years away from just being good enough for the playoffs. Buffalo's window to winning is shorter than that but still 2-3 years of not winning? Can he be that patient? Depends on how good he thinks Eichel would be I guess. Eliotte did make a good point that he wonders if Babcock's message will get lost after another 4-5 years. Worked ok for the last 10 but is 15 too many. I do wonder about that.

I was watching the frozen four this year and had the sane exact thought.

As for the hire, left field choice for sure. But I trust Hextall. Any kind of NHL hire would have been a retread though. Stevens, Hitchcock, Dineen.

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Love the move. A nothing to lose move. Would have only wanted Babcock if it was a retread. Doesn't sound like they ever reached out to him. That was the impression I was getting from the press conference. Or they did. He said no. They said, "well OK",. and then went down the path of courting this guy.

Haven't looked at draft prospects. Hoping there's a guy the Flyers can draft named Hixstull, or something along those lines.

TMoore4075 05-18-2015 07:20 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
The least surprising news is McLellan signing with the Oilers. I wonder if that had something to do with Babs not talking to them. Maybe he knew his boy was a candidate and didn't want to take it from him.

Still trying to wrap my head around the Flyers coaching choice. I am glad it wasn't someone with a connection to the Flyers

I wonder if Hakstol's favorite WWE wrestler of all time was Hacksaw Jim Duggan

Is Johnson the only guy who scores on TB? Every time I've watched their games during the playoffs, he's scoring.

This is going to be high scoring with all these penalties. Not liking this trend for Ny

Don't see the Rangers winning a game with this many calls. Hope things settle down for the next two periods.
