OK ... I think it's been over analyzed. Who the hell cares anymore where Mrs. Babcock and the kids wants to live and how big of a factor it was in deciding. Ready to lock this thread up and move on. I doubt anyone can add anything insightful to the fact that Babcock has chosen the Leafs.
Personally, if I was Holland, no. $3.25 for 4 years is a significant raise and very fair for his performance, how many Cups again did Babcock bring us? This offers him and other coaches a reasonable increase in level of pay. Doubling it in one move is a bit unreasonable. If Babs makes $5, how much should Q and Sutter make, both have 2 Cups in the last 5 years?
Would not let Babs use Buffalo as the gauge of salary. I'd support Holland and Mr. I if they let him walk.
If the report is true ... sorry but no. Don't cater to that condition ... let him go now. No way to a 1 year or 2 year deal and we do this all over again ... what, when Pittsburgh wants to dance and we lose Blashill ... no way. Bye, good luck in Buffalo or Toronto.
Blashill, congratulations, you're the new head coach of the Detroit Red Wings for the next 4 years, grow with it, we'll be patient.
he is gone. when he starts asking other teams, it says a lot. he could also sit out a year, not like he needs the money. There have been Babs to U of M rumors for a couple of years as well.
Yah but of all teams, SJ ?? What do they have that the Wings don't have other than summer weather all year round? Their 2 stars are aging as well. If McLellan can't get more out of them, then I don't think Babcock can do much more. Babcock cannot put on goalie pads and play for the Sharks.
I honestly think they are further away from SC than Detroit and that joke of a GM, he wants to trade Wilson for Holland?
