I think Babcock can see through a streak. More importantly he can see exactly where the team is, even when they were performing well. I think he has already decided to go & I think he will end up coaching the Sharks. They are closer, SJ is a beautiful place to live. I don't think he will want to wait the three years to be competitive in a meaningful way & why should he have faith that the right decisions will be made within 3 years. We have a few really interesting kids but we are going to loose a couple "special" players soon. Kronner is exhausted and while Danny will be a solid guy they have nothing else long term on the back end, nothing.
The Sharks are closer to what exactly? They are not even in a playoff spot and have just as many locker room issues as the Leafs.
No way. Petr playedfantastic yesterday. Howard would have let in some crappy goal while we only had a one goal lead and the game could have been different. Howard simply has not been making the saves he needs to consistently.
Their is a reason he said 'nearly the same'.
I don't think it would be as drastic as you say considering how bad the defense played against Philly. I mean how many goals were 2 on 1 or 3 on 2 goals.
Babcock just tells Pierre a bunch of useless information. He knows like every hockey fan knows that Pierre is useless and carries no credibility. I thought everyone here at LGW knew that already though.
I can't stand the guy but let's not get carried away here, Pierre knows a ton about Hockey and the players, more so than anyone on LGW would ever know.
