Pitt fired Shero...sounds like the new GM will pick the next head coach.

I find it hilarious that the Caps are rumored to be interested in Shero. That would be a mistake for them.

Shero is a decent GM, just too loyal.

Bylsma is gone they just want new GM to make the decision like in Vancouver.

Man, if the new GM actually lands Babcock(a lot of smoke there) then it will be interesting to see the reactions from Wings fans.
Of course they could also pursue Trotz.

Paul Holmgren is available.

Just saying.

The issue there though, the Pens don't have the talent to move around that Philly did.
Philly always underachieved. Pitt is built around Crosby and Malkin, if you trade Malkin even for a king's ransom you still potentially set the team back a year or two.

I would rather lose Babs now and keep Blashill than keep Babs for a couple more years and lose both of them. A lot of people seem to think Blash is Babs 2.0. I seriously doubt Babs goes to Pitt though. Maybe in a couple years but no way do they pry him loose for next year.

Don't the Wings also have a GM candidate they don't want to lose?

Jim Nill was being groomed to replace Holland at some point but the Stars managed to steal him away. Damn shame too. He was one helluva drafter. Not sure what the current plan is. I think Holland's contract runs through 2015 or so. Hard to imagine him going anywhere else, and he's still pretty young, but I slept better at night with Nill around.

I had forgot he already got promoted to another team. For some reason I still thought he was with the Wings.

Yeah it was, I just for some reason didn't remember.
I think I kept confusing the Pens assistant GM with Detroit's former one.

Babcock is under contract for another year in Detroit. I can't see why the Wings would let him out of his contract to go to another team, unless Babcock requests it and Holland agrees to it as a sign of respect. But the Pens are in the same conference now... I think Babcock is a wet dream for Pens fans.

Game over.

2-0 lead with Quick is like 10-0.

Has to be the Kings. Quick is the best goalie on the ice and has to step up.

This is why I cannot get behind a Bruce B team. They always choke or disappoint in the playoffs.
