Babcocks response to video tribute during game per Nhl.com

"It was nice of them to do. I wish they wouldn't have to do that," Babcock said. "I don't coach their team anymore. I'm glad this is all over with."

I was just about to post that. Seems like an odd thing to say right? I mean, is that out of shame? Or just despises nostalgia? Or is it regret? Or that his team got their asses handed to them and the wings don't have their best team iced with pav and their D is pretty thin.

Also, haven't heard anyone mention green. Only watched some of the game. How was he on D?

Honestly, Babs has looked like he didn't want to be there the previous two seasons. You can tell he wasn't too high on the GM decisions being made and he just seemed like he was going through the motions. The game has also changed quite a bit in the last few seasons and Babs hasn't kept up. I can see him being let go from the leafs half way through his contract. I mean, getting paid double what all other coaches are getting paid because you had success for 10 years on a team that quite frankly, if they hadn't made the playoffs would have been a pretty rough season considering the players they ice every night. Babs strategies are already no longer relevant in this ever changing league and I would be quietly amused at his demise in Toronto.

Mike green. I was right except about the cheap part. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

Looks like Kenny is trying to give his new coach the best chance. I think he and babs had been in agreement to just make the playoffs and let babs go when his contract expired. He was good at first but Kenny is insistent on the youth movement and a fresh coach with that too. Definitely seems like too much of a coincidence.
