Finally, someone who hasn't completely lost their mind regarding the Mike Babcock hype. This is a good article by the way, totally worth a read.
Tom Renney on Mike Babcock:
“I think he’s in an envious position because he’s so successful. I think if he’s not the best coach in the world he’s in the top three or four guys for sure,” said Renney.
“The one thing is, the organization has to be ready for Mike and Mike has to be ready for it.
“Mike has been at one place a long time. And there’s a certain template there that has stood the test of time for a reason. Quite honestly, that’s with or without Mike. What Mike did was fit into it very, very well and place his own set of demands onto that whole program and make it as successful as it’s ever been.”
