In Topic: It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

The back passes have been going on for years, way before hiller. 


Really? I honestly don't remember that play with Renney, and I don't remember hearing Mickey complaining about it like he did this year.

I recall the primary reason Shanahan left the Wings was because Babcock was coach. He said something along the lines of 'his voice grades on you.'


I'm surprised Shanny wanted him, because that exposes him as...something.

That sucks.


Damn, no more back passes over center line to ruin momentum or cause an offsides.

Evidently it's three 3rd round picks:




The Wings will get a third-round pick during the next three seasons as compensation for Babcock

I personally think he'll take the Buffalo job. He doesn't want to be the coach that ends the Wings' playoff streak, and that could conceivably happen soon if the last couple of seasons are any indication.


Also, Buffalo has a metric ton of young talent... How fun would it be to inherit that, mold them while they're young and malleable, and then sit back and watch your creation play great hockey for years to come?


I don't have any direct links, but I recall reading numerous times Babock saying that sometimes a coach's voice becomes like Charlie Brown's teacher after a while, and that the players stop listening. I think he thinks he's at that point, and maybe has been for a while.
