Absolute pure and fun speculation here, who would you choose to replace babs and why? I was listening to Elliot's Friedman the other day and he said many players despise babs but respect him.
I'd pick Peter laviolette seems like a great personality plus stresses physicality in a real way what say you?

The thread title is misleading. No way Babcock gets fired this season.

Who:  Dave Tippett

Why:  He's the best coach in hockey.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

This.  Tippett is my #1 choice by a mile


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Agreed I really like tippet would be different to see him have a team with offensive talent, no doubt I think he'd still succeed

I'd love Sutter, just for the hilarity of him trolling the media


"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

If Babs ever does get replaced or decides to leave, I believe it will be Jeff Blashill who would replace him.

For some reason I was going to object, but then I realized I was thinking of Alain Vigneault and not Dave Tippett. 

 

Although I think Hitchcock deserves consideration as well.

I mean, I can't objectively back it up.  There are guys with more wins, guys with more Cups, guys with loads of international accolades.  But nobody has won as often as Tippett with less talent than Tippett.  That, to me, is the best in the biz.

Can't argue there.  Hitch is a real good coach.

omg, mini heart attack... don't do that to me. I can not even imagine anyone else leading the wings right now. Players despised but respected bowman too, Babs is a great coach, despite what many around here believe

I would rather be respected in my career than loved.

The title was misleading, the first thing I thought when reading it was "Babcock got fired?". I edited it to better reflect the topic of the thread. 

 

Anyway, i'd pull Scotty Bowman out of retirement and make him coach again. Best to ever do it.
