Donnchadha: Am I the only one hoping the Caps/Rags go into quintuple OT as to totally fark with the Kentucky Derby coverage?Of course, they'll just move the OT off to CNBC or something...
Recoil Therapy: A few years ago they were perfectly content to stop broadcasting a playoff OT game (Sens & ?) to cut to the 2+ hours of pre-race nonsense.
Popcorn Johnny: Wish they had a 3pm game instead of 2 in the 7 o'clock hour.
Donnchadha: ... but .... but.... mint juleps!
Popcorn Johnny: Donnchadha: ... but .... but.... mint juleps!Yeah, I guess when you spend a couple hundred million for the TV contract, you get to make the rules.
Vangor: Oh good, I don't have to stay up until 1:30am to watch us play.
KarlMaldensNose: Vangor: Oh good, I don't have to stay up until 1:30am to watch us play.I'll be so glad when they are in the East next year.
Gecko Gingrich: Donnchadha: Am I the only one hoping the Caps/Rags go into quintuple OT as to totally fark with the Kentucky Derby coverage?Of course, they'll just move the OT off to CNBC or something...As a Caps fan, no. We had one of those last year (OK, only treble, but still), and my boys were gassed for the rest of the series.
LesserEvil: If Detroit cannot make it past Round 1, Babcock needs to go
LesserEvil: If Detroit cannot make it past Round 1, Babcock needs to go, and Holland needs to dig into his bag of magic tricks to assemble a couple prime pieces this summer.
Donnchadha: Let's Go Tie!!
LesserEvil: I was really hoping the Wild would at least put up a fight, but after watching that game last night, it's clear they've given up completely. I wanted Chicago and Minnesota to go 7 games, with a few games going to 3 or 4 OTs, but it looks like the Wild will be easily swept aside.
lunchinlewis: NBC needs to turn up their announcer mic's. Or turn down their arena mic's.
Pituophis: LesserEvil: If Detroit cannot make it past Round 1, Babcock needs to go, and Holland needs to dig into his bag of magic tricks to assemble a couple prime pieces this summer.Yeah, you're wrong. Sorry. If they don't make it out of the first, Holland needs to go. Look at the job Babcock has done losing Nick Lidstrom, Brad Stuart, Jiri Hudler (who was terrible) and replaced with, what? Carlo Coliaccovo (who Holland signed, despite a career riddled with injuries)? Mikael "Sambags" Samuelsson (who is terrible AND spent the entire season on the IR (blessing in disguise)).Detroit iced a line-up missing Darren Helm ALL season, for pete's sake. Babcock got great minutes out of Brunner, Andersson (a rookie, working his way into the top PK pairing), Nyquist. He's got Kindl, Ericsson, and Smith playing solid minutes and got away from the terrible turnovers early in the season.This was a rebuilding year. That they even made the post-season was remarkable. I don't believe that either Holland or Babcock should be fired if they don't advance past the 1st round this year. But if either of them should go, it should be Holland for not making moves at the deadline to improve the team long term and to get something for players with expiring contracts (see Hudler, Jiri; see also Filppula, Valterri).The bottom line is that between the loss of the second greatest defenseman OF. ALL. TIME. and the massive amounts of man games lost to key players this season, they should probably both be given a raise.
mediablitz: Sharks take two ON THE ROAD. Pigs seen flying...
Frozen_Puck: It seems crazy to think people are saying Babcock or Holland should go after this short season...
Pituophis: Several seasons of not being in the hunt for the President's Trophy has also led to calls for Babcock's head.
Popcorn Johnny: LOL what? Nobody gives a fark about the President's Trophy.
