I didn't think the Red Wings could win tonight but I think they could have a better chance with Osgood. so I ask you , do you think this early exit will cost Babcock his job?

Babcock doesn't have anything to worry about. Nor should he. Howard did a decent job, 4 goals a game (except for the one) wasn't good enough, but it is what it is. Penalties deserved or not killed us early in this round. And had the head shot on Johan been called tonight, like it should have been, it might have been a different game..play would have stopped, there would have been at least a 2 minute major. the face off would have been in shark territory and Thornton would have never scored that 2nd goal..in those couple of minutes the game was changed. I'm not making excuses for my guys., they lost, but after the season they had, they went further than anyone said they would. Officiating has sucked all through these play-offs and not just for my guys. All I care about now is our Captain saying he is not going to retire and will stick around another year or so, he promises to announce in the next 2 or 3 weeks what he is planning, sticks crossed, he will keep playing. Next season Hudler will be back and our top line will all be healthy and ready to play, as long as no one falls in a hole on the golf course.

I like Babcock. I think he's a good coach. He doesn't show too much emotion when he's behind the bench. Well at least as far as I can see in the TV. But you know that he is very intense. I would hate to be the player who's coughed up the puck that leads to a score, and is now sitting in the bench. I would surely feel the coach's stare at the back of my head. So, I'm sure he'll be back at the Joe coaching the wings for a few more years.
