I have a really hard time believing Babdick is poor at developing players. In fact I don't believe it, it seems rather the opposite between him and Byslma. It's something I wanted him over Byslma for actually

Just finished that paper True have me on dumping vs carrying it in. I'm going to fundamentally hate DD if he insists on dumping the puck and 'forcing' the other team to carry r in against u

Any chance you can link the Byslma one? After reading about it, I'm literally yelling at my tv when we unnecessarily dump it in

GM gives him the same roster

2018, gone. 2017, pissed, but I'm not in favor of continual change

Honeslty I'm not patient for any of those reasons. I'm only patient because Jack and Sam are 19/20 in their rookie years, Pysyk and McCabe are basically rookies too, and GMTM didn't give him much to work with on the back end.

Remember when there was an argument of DD > Babcock? Good times

- We very rarely go offsides. It's actually really impressive

 

- Top 10 (or 1 outside of it) in both special teams units. And that's with some really ###### offensive defensemen and absolutely no 2nd pp unit. Very impressive

 

- It seems like it takes him a long, long time to figure out very basic line combinations. It's a huge concern I have with him. I'll be looking to see if he allows Larsson to continue to play the minutes and role he's dominated in, or he just reverts to crushing ROR and Jack under 22+ minutes a night

Pretty consistent

Man, looks to me like I was never excited about this hiring. I gave Dan a little room the first few months, but it seems I was already souring by January.

Same.

I'll never forget GoDD's thread about Byslma > Babcock. That was fun, honestly

Bylsma sounding more natural in his WGR piece.
The dude loves Eichel.

Man, the past is something, isn't it?
