Just saw on twitter stupid Babcock stole Andersen's right hand man ... Forget how his name spelt but he's a Finnish scout and responsible for us drafting Tatar nyquist pulkkinen jarnkrok marchenko nestrasil among a Few others

Seems it's always the wings losing key staff

Stupid leafs

Meh. If he was Andersson's right hand man, then technically Andersson was more responsible for drafting those guys.

But yeah. Babcock and the Leafs can go get f***ed any time know.

Yeah I saw this. Babs is really starting to piss me off by taking some of our coaching and staff members..

Goes to show how popular Babs really was among the organization.

Yeah well. I'd rather lose a scout and a coach or two than watch Glendenning and Miller play 18 minutes a night again this season.

Looks like another useless let's bash the best coach in all of hockey kind of thing.

YOU LEAVE BABCOCK ALONE!!!!

do we get compensated for each person who leaves the organization, or is that limited to certain roles?

Pretty sure it's just certain roles. Also would depend on if he were under contract with the Wings or not, which I can only assume he is not. I mean, I'm sure if he was under contract there would be some sort of non-compete clause. Just speculating though...

I hate seeing this too, Yzerman did much of the same when he left...he must not have been too good though, haven't you heard, Pulkkinen stinks, Nestrasil was no big loss, we won't miss Jarnkrok anyhow... :ninja:

I am just joking, if he were anywhere near part responsible for recommending Kenny draft any of those listed players, he will, sadly, be missed and unfortunately be a help to the Leafs...I wonder if got some sort of promotion to go to the Leafs?

Hey I'm glad Babcock and his minions are gone

OMG, what an awesome photoshop opportunity that is!!

MINIONS!!

I generally don't mind the poaching, especially in Babcock's case, as people prefer working with certain people and others are offered a promotion, but it's kinda weird that it's the only time people tend to leave our front office.

I'm not sure what losing a scout has to do with Babcock. His involvement with scouts would be minimal at best.

Shanahan would be the one who poached him, but I think it has more to do with him getting a promotion he was never going to get in Detroit. The Wings have Hakan as their director of European Scouting and I'm sure Shanahan was well aware that Vuori has spent the past few years learning from him. Who better to choose to become your own director of European Scouting?
