The first thing I'll do is question where the doctors went to medical school and did their residency. :)

Thank you. No team physician can rule out the long term risks here. Not sure what a "shroud of caring is" since I think most fans are genuinely concerned for his long term health, even if we arent all personal friends of Mule or anyone else. It's called being a halfway decent human being, even online.

Call me crazy, but I thought our play took a noticable dive in quality when he left. I think he was (and is) a good coach. Glad he is working for real hockey fans and not a bunch of fair weather fan brogrammer tech start up geeks!

 I swear I read somewhere long ago he built it for 7 million. Darn real estate market hurts us all.

Good luck with that skunk team Babs. You suck for going to a rival. I hope they continue their same ways. Brutal... FacePalm

Kenny, Blashill, and Wings... Get your team together and prepare to burn leafs in a bonfire next year

A more perfect post could not have followed mine! :-)

This is a good opportunity to see how everyone might deal with being dumped! Do you respond with anger, bitterness, jealousy... or do you move on and wish them well in their new life? If you are having problems dealing with rejection (Babsjection?) there are positives to this.


Yes, he was a very good coach with a record that can't be challenged. However, what are the stats on his playoff game 7s? I can remember quite a few heartbreaker game 7s under Babs. Of course a new coach has to GET us to a Game 7, but I thought he choked a little too often.


Also, the near scizophrenic play of our team the past few years (post Nick) where they flip between lazy/energized, smart/dumb (especially in the D) just might have had something to do with coaching. What else could it be? If not and Babs was actually squeezing out the very best we had, that will be revealed and an obvious collapse or set back will put a sense of urgency and/or accountability on the rest of the organization (KH is on the hot seat now - as he should be).


This is all good. We have a new start. 


Good luck Babs, I wish you well in your new position, you darn selfish greedy SOB, how could you leave us for skanky Toronto after all we have been through together?!?
