But you gotta remember Ducks coach is holding better hands. Series is still 3-2. Let's look at the forest not a tree.
Tonight was the forest.

He also lets Billins play the half wall while shifting Tatar to the point, it is strange to watch. Almqvist and Paetsch are our only D really that are good point men with shots and are often wasted with the second forward unit. Just pointing out something he does down there that drives me nuts.
lol...well to be honest with you, I dont know much about Blashill, and dont get many opportunities to watch Griffins games at all. I was just voicing my frustration with Coach Babcock and his questionnable (retarted/ridiculous/laughable) decisions tonight. Tatar should be playing 3rd line with the Wings right now.

Lashoff has proven uncapable, but continues to take a regular shift. Screwed up on the game winner. Screwed up majorly twice, but was saved by Palmeiri missing an open net and the ref whistling off the goal.

Meanwhile-- Babcock's decision to put Eaves and company out on the five minute PP-- led to a poor pass by Eaves, that caused Smith to take the penalty that killed the PP and led to Getzlaf's huge PP goal.
Well I don't know. Who is the coach that gets mistake free performances out of every player 100% of the time?

1) He puts players out there in positions where they're doomed to fail, when better options are out there.

Which group of guys DID play well on that PP?

Babcock is an amazing coach and where ever he goes, he will make a mediocre team a playoff team. If he wants to renew, you write him a blank check and re-sign him immediately.

Blashhill is great in the AHL... leave him there to help the kids. This will make the transition easier.
