Some wild speculation surrounding Mike Babcock's future with the Red Wings and his potential job prospects. More ahead on NHL on TSN.

 

That's from Darren Dreger's Twitter. One of the names I always trust. Damnit I hope he isn't let go...

s***.... the phrase "wild speculation" makes me feel a little better


Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

"potential job prospects" sounds maybe like he'll be coaching Canada in the Olympics again???

There's no way Babcock would do something insane right before the playoffs, especially given our situation. I would only hope he would announce an extension with the franchise? He's too classy to do otherwise....

Maybe that's it. But the way he put it, it sounded like something crazy. Which him coaching Canada is not really crazy at all. I'm scared!

The tweet says his future with the wings and potential job prospects. Surely that's not about coaching Canada because it's worded awfully if that's the case

The word from HF is that there has been rumor of him taking over for Red at UofM. Does his son play there?

That's how media works though. Post things in a way that generates more buzz. Success.

As a hockey fan, sometimes you don't even notice when things are spelled the Canadian way. I didn't catch that until you pointed it out

HF was saying that he apparently has stated that he doesn't like NHL travel. His daughter still goes to school here, and apparently he wants to coach his son? I'm not sure, but that's what they were saying. They stated it like a well known rumor.



 

 

Suggestions Babcock will be Red Berenson's successor at U of Mich. Babcock says not true. 2 yrs left on deal with Det and he's very happy.

While true, most expect Babcock to coach Canada after taking them to a gold medal last Olympics, so it wouldn't be a shocker to see him named again. Just feel it's about something not related to it
