Looks similar to Dallas Eakins old resume

 

Eakins coached NHL players he groomed in the AHL? Eakins Associate Coached the Oilers prior to that? Eakins was groomed within a program with  tradition that has a 24 year legacy of winning?


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

Why the animosity for Babcock from some? Sounded from both his & Holland's presser they both knew it was time to move on. Holland kept coming back to 10 years being an eternity for a coach. Sounded to me like Babcock felt that his message was getting stale and he was ready to try something new. His kids are grown & leaving the house & he and his wife wanted to live in a city downtown. Toronto is an Iconic franchise. I would give pretty much anything to be a part of the Wings since I'm from MI, I can only imagine what it would be like for him as a Canadian to try to and  turn Toronto into a contender.

 

Babs knows that Blash is waiting in the wings(no pun intended). He knows that he will most likely be leaving the people he is very close with in good shape & not hung out to dry. Add on top of that a brinks truck of cash and an opportunity to have a good amount of control of building a franchise from basically the bottom to the top. It's a no brainer..........

Seems like Blashill is more comparable to John Cooper. Young team that he grew with, and look how that is turning out. Bonus is Blashill has worked with most of the older players as well when he was an A.C. Worked with D.K. and Western as well. Homegrown guy that has been groomed in the Redwing Way. No way the guy doesn't get the job if he wants it. Illitchs' love the Michigan roots.
