As long as he wants to be here, is as long as we should have him - The best coach in the game right now.

This is great news!

It would be nice to see him get consideration for the Jack Adams this year.

I've wondered in past years how he is not even in the running...

Great news for the Wings though! :yowza:

It would be nice to see him get consideration for the Jack Adams this year.

Unfortunately, the odds of him ever getting his dues (Jack Adam's nominations) would have to come at the cost of the team having a horrible season, followed by a bounce back season.

The league never recognizes teams that are consistently good (which is ridiculous, because if anything, that is a BETTER example of a great coach) and instead, always nominates teams that have break-out or comeback years... if getting us over 100pts last season with the injury decimated roster we had can't get him a nomination, I don't know what will...

He'd probably have to coach them to the first even 82-0 season to get a nomination and he'd still probably lose to someone like Ron Wilson...

"Babcock is believed to be the highest-paid coach in the NHL with a salary approaching $2 million a season."

Damn good salary for a nhl coach, but money isn't a problem for mr.illitch and management and coaching salary does not apply to the salary cap so no problems :D

IMHO, he is the best coach in the game. An excellent extension for an excellent coach. :)

Congrats Mike!

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.
