At the time I thought Ozzy should get the nod because he was playing so well, but when the other goalie is one of if not the best goaltender to ever play the game, a guy who has strapped teams on his back and carried them to the final rounds, you give him a shot.
It's funny though that you're going all the way back to 2008 to try and chip away at Babcock's reputation and the "myth" of his genius.
He's a coach who:
Won a Stanley Cup
Got to the Finals two other times (once with a cinderella team)
won 2 Gold medals
Is the only coach in the triple gold club.
second fastest to 500 wins (Bowman being 1st)
But the "myth of his genius" was formed on Ozzy's playoff run in 2008? Honestly at this point your Babcock fixation is genuinely entertaining.
Presumably you haven't scrolled down to where I said of the purpose of the thread..."Actually it was just his 2008 performance. The Babcock part was just me being a smartass and making an aside".
And furthermore, at this point part of the reason I talk so much s*** about Babcock is because I know you'll write a report to defend him. Kinda like krsmith17 does with Brendan Smith.
Lighten up Harold.
