In Topic: It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

I'm honestly more upset about Hiller (our powerplay coach from last season) leaving more than Babcock leaving. Our powerplay was great last season, hopefully it stays the same.

Big loss for Michigan and #cawlidgehawkey. Adds to Detroit's impressive forward depth. Big trade comin
Big Trade Coming? hmmm

Probably complete speculation. "Detroit has a lot of forwards, so a trade would make since therefor it means that there is one coming even though I have no real evidence".

How do you know? Maybe the wings will be a top tier team with a new coach. Babs Haas some questionable line combos, and his refusal to demote Ericsson after so many terrible mistakes every game was atrocious. How come Smith got no pp time, how come Weiss could get 3 points in a game and lose 2 minutes ice time next game? This team needs an offensive rh defenseman. Otherwise it's actually a good team that Babcock couldn't motivate to even start games on time or play a full 60 minutes

All of this. The Wings have had motivation problems for years. I'm so glad we're getting a new coach. Babcock is very much overrated.

This is insane. Let the guy go. We've made it past the first round once in the last five years, we obviously need some changes.

Agreed. Babcock is completely overrated. He has won at all levels, yeah, but he's had completely stacked teams. I could win at the Olympics if I had Canada's team. The Red Wings have completely underperformed with him as head coach. I don't even want Blashill if he is just like Babcock.

Pretty stupid comments by him no matter his intentions. There are much better ways to motivate a player than by completely dismissing him after one half of one pro season.
