I don't get it....funny why?

Some people have no sense of humour.


I hope Babs stays.  I can't imagine him leaving the NHL.  That's what most people strive for.

@DarrenDreger: 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.

Good news!

In the words of Homer Simpson to Marge: "It's uterUS, not uteryou!"
Mickey is one of the only colour commentators I've heard that gets angry when his team gets a powerplay as a result of a crap call from an official.

You wonder why this rumor - which is all it is right now- was started.  That doesn't strike me as Dreger's style.  To make waves at this point in the season?  Whaaaat?   :plain:

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Travel just got a lot easier being in the East!!! This is just the league trying to derail our playoff streak with some distraction:):)

Even if this was to be true you think Babs would say yeah I'm leaving... He wouldn't do that given the spot the wings are in and throw the whole team under the bus right before playoffs... He'd wait until the offseason. Classic example when players want to leave a team they always say oh I like it here and hope to sign a new contract wether that's true or not, same kind of thing with Babs. But I doubt it's true.

This is such s*** - Babcock will finish his contract with the Wings before anything happens.  I love Dreger, but f*** him for breaking this the night before our biggest game of the season.  This is someones "oh this would be nice" fantasy. 

When you lose, say little. When you win, say less.

I think there is some confusion here with a lot of people thinking Dreger put this rumour out there.  The rumour has been out there and Dreger is actually putting out the fire.

The operative words here are "WILD SPECULATION." That should tell everyone all that they need to know.

Yeah "Wild Speculation" just means "Hey we're going to make some s*** up about a well known coach to get viewers/hits"

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.



HF is wrong. Babcock told Dreger that he has no intention of leaving the Red Wings.

It has been reported that Ian White was the one who started these rumors about Mike Babcock in retaliation for being perma-benched.  It has not been confirmed if Carlo Colaiacovo conspired with Mr. White, though it has been speculated.

If I die tell my wife I said, "Hello".

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



"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Coached Canada to a gold medal and will likely coach Canada again.


Only way he leaves is if he wants to leave, and theres no way he trades an original six elite NHL organization for NCAA hockey


This speculation certainly is "Wild"

the only thing I can see happening realistically, is a promotion. If kenny gets promoted to president, nill to vp/gm, and babs to nills position, that would make sense. Anything else is just asinine
