i feel you about protecting the goalie, and I even think sherwood probably kept his gloves down on purpose... but it's almost irrelevant what the circumstances were.  Lucic was more of a danger on the ice than the slash on the goalie was, and he needs to approach his fighting better or he'll likely cause lasting damage to an "unwilling" opponent.  no-one wants that to happen.

(except to Kempe)  

That I agree with 100 percent. Maybe I was more irritated about Sherwood’s unwillingness to answer for it, although he kind of did. One game would have been understandable.

Can someone please explain to me how Detroit can beat Vegas - they only had 19 shots on goal in the entire game.  They are struggling so bad but beat Vegas.  I don't remember the ducks winning more than one game.

And, Detroit scored twice in the 3rd to do it.  That never happens against the ducks...

mcjesus christ are Mcdavid/draisitle INSANE right now...it's almost just unfair...

although i think it just peaked...we'll see. but if they keep this up...leon will have 160 points...a number no one has gotten to since super Mario in 95/96...

so, likely they will cool down...but wow...forget they are the oilers and not the ducks and they are very fun to watch...

At the time Draisaitl singed his contract I thought he was slightly overpaid. I don't know what I was thinking.

Just watched Evander Kane hack the side of the head of an Edmonton defenseman, all while a lineman watched, no call, even as the Edmonton player sprawls on the ice in pain and barely skates to the bench.  

i don’t know what the refs are on. 

This kind of jit should be reviewable and refs punished. NHL is losing money when teams are losing because of injuries - people don't want to games and don't want to by NHl apparel and stuff when there's no guarantee a caveman can't hack your favorite player on the head or MMA him.

NHL: we must reduce enforcers and fighting to protect our image and our bottom line!

also the NHL: petty goon behaviours that are just as likely to injure someone and make our sport look like it's for barbarians? Keep em coming!

crazy.

This. But it's also crazy they're on a 5 game losing streak and that their goal differential is -8. That's something to be ashamed of with that kind of offense (even taking into account Marner is out). I guess Babcock must have lost the room otherwise firing him is a huge boneheaded move by dubas. Very curious to see how it pans out.

they've had ridiculous offense and even decent defense, on paper (and $$), that keeps losing to low teams, for at least 1..25 years... so, Babcock might be a great coach, but he doesn't seem to be able to coach the team he's been handed... and he's been handed some great athletes.  

i get the firing.  it seems a bit rushed, though, and we're all wondering who CAN coach the team if B can't.  even if firing B was the right decision, they're going to look like idiots if they don't replace him with something that results in more wins.

people seemed to be stoked about Keefe coming in. i think Babcock is a great coach. not sure what happened in toronto or if maybe he just doesn't have the voice for so many superstars? that team has a lot of young superstars...and anyone here ever dealt with the a bunch of young hotshots who think they are god's gift to the world and think they know whats best...hard to really get through to, i would assume lol

Babcock had veterans in anaheim and a very mature, veteran-heavy team in Detroit. i would still take him though...even after what i just said lol i don't think our young guys feel they are superstars would listen to him. especially if Getz was on board.

Paul Maclean over to Columbus for special teams...that's a great pick-up....would love to have him back......

Yeah he'd fix the powerplay right-a-way. Also that Beard-Stache.

im worried San Jose is gonna pick up Babcock...that would be a helluvan acquisition....and i think put them over the edge to be a top-team again.

but i could also see him going to Chicago or Calgary or Minnesota... as much as I would love to have him here...it doesn't make much sense since we just hired a new coach. i doubt it'll happen...but it would make me very happy lol

I remember saying I wouldn’t mind Ritchie knocking this guy into next week. Someone finally had enough of the clown diving all over the ice. Not condoning what Bortuzzo did here, just not surprised nor do I feel bad

With all the bad news about Babs, Peters, Crawford, etc. dominating the headlines, it’s nice to see good guy Bruce Boudreau coaching the hell out of the Wild right now. 8-0-3 over their last 11, and just beat Tampa in their own building.

I really miss the big red tomato. Good guy. Great coach.

So many coaches losing their jobs over questionable behaviour in the last couple of weeks it's almost surprising when one gets canned for actual hockey reasons (lol sharts)

Stupid Capitals. Euro Sasquatch (Zdeno) get slapped around by Wilson.

TJ Oshie (American shoot out hero) makes three players look really stupid in a gorgeous sequence for the goal.

The troubling thing here is that the 'bad conduct' that is getting these coaches in trouble, happened years in the past.  It's like the treatment the refs give the Ducks:  Full scrutiny with an eye toward punishing this year's team for stuff done in 2005.  Not fair in either case.  You'd think that the fact that there were no recent reports of bad behavior by the coaches would indicate that they've grown up a bit.

Dittos for BB.  Very nice person, great coach.

I’m not sure what to make of the Crawford situation, but it sounds like Peters was being a terrible human very recently. There are allegations of him kicking and punching players in the head in Carolina, where he was coaching as recently as 2018. Peters also resigned, he wasn’t fired, and my suspicion is that he resigned to put an end to the Flames investigation, which he probably knew would dig up a whole lot of other incidents of misconduct, maybe even in the current locker room.

Calgary also got knocked out of the playoffs in the first round in 5 games last season to the #8 seeded Avs, which had to have upset the front office. And the Flames were just treading water for the first two months of this season. I also think it’s interesting that the Flames have won five straight since Peters was replaced behind the bench. So removing Peters seems to be about as punishing to the Flames as removing Carlyle was punishing to the Ducks last season.

I dunno...did Babs actually get accused for being physically abusive? or just mentally? like his firing wasn't based off of that, so I'm guessing he would still be hired...I know there are a few retired players really speaking out about how bad he was for the mental side of players...but it's not like every veteran is coming out and saying that. i wonder if he just got worse as he went on his career...if he was like that in Anaheim or not.

a team with Veterans might be the better team for him....like....the Stars....or Sharks...

also, yes! BB seemed to have been very liked by all :) ....minus the whole lack of playoff results though lol

I have no problem with Peters being fired for using racist slurs, even if it was 10 years ago. Though he claims he apologised at the time (this was disputed by Aliu, who said Peters in fact doubled down and did not apologise), he definitely didn't face any punishment for it. Why would he have changed in the past 10 years if he never faced any consequences for his bad behavior?
