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

Yesterday, 04:19 PM

I heard parts of the Babcock press conference. I wonder how long until the media turns on him? The Toronto media and fan base is soft, Toronto is the self proclaimed "best of" everything, and if people have other opinions they don't like it. It'll be interesting to see how they react to an upfront and blunt coach like Babcock.

Knowing the Leafs luck, this 3rd round pick will turn out to be a replacement for Datsyuk :lol:

 

I agree, I doubt the Phaneuf trade happens now, which is fine with me.

I'm looking forward to Blashill taking over the Wings. Considering he coached most of the team in GR, he's the right man for the job.

 

As for Babcock, thanks for the 10 years, but it's time for both sides to move on. Goood luck in Toronto, you'll need it. I don't think the majority of the fans and media in Toronto are aware this rebuild will take 10 years. The media is saying they'll be bad for a couple years. A COUPLE? They have nothing, it's like taking over an expansion team. They're going to have to bottom out for 5 years to go anywhere. The media and fans need to leave Babcock alone, but I doubt they will. In 3 years they'll probably demand he be fired.

 

Other then the guaranteed money, I think this is a horrible decision by Babcock.

We all hate Toronto, but it's a real hockey city. Buffalo not so much. Can't blame him for choosing the Leafs over the Sabres.

 

I live an hour west of Buffalo, been to about 10 games there, it's a great hockey city!

You obviously forgot about Canada.

But when Canada loses Canadians say, "It's only the World Championships"
