As much as I like Babcock, and I do think he's a great coach, but I think atleast half dozen coaches would've won the Cup w/ that '08 team, and his Golds with those Canadian teams.
Holland hoarding his assets again with Babs and Blashy.
It's a tough call: The only way to ensure a smooth transition is to let Babcock go and send a moving truck down I-96 to pick up Blashill's things and bring 'em east.
If Babcock gets a 2 yr extension, then we risk losing Blashy ( his term will be up by then, too) and then what? The chances that one of the good coaches we'd like would actually be available is pretty darn slim.
Be cool, say five years from now, to have Blashill behind the bench, Yzerman calling the shots, Holland way up high in the office (doing lots of interviews) w/ Nosek, Larkin, Sheahan, Glenny down the middle, Mantha, Nyquist, Tatar, Pulks, Cleary, Jurco...our futures so bright, we gotta wear shades!
Was cleary a typo?
