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

22 May 2015 - 06:06 PM

Babcock gave us 10 years of playoff appearances. In a league that seeks parity, we should be thankful for this kind of continued success. 3 straight WCF appearances, 2 straight SCF appearances with the chance of winning the Cup back to back. A lot of pieces had to fit into place to make this work, and Babcock played a major role. That said, it's time for a change for both parties after 10 years. No hard feelings for going to Toronto, it's business and his career choice. And to top it off, the Red Wings made the right decisions with letting him go and having Blash groomed for this job. It's a new direction for us, but we won before Babcock and we can win after him. If anything, the Wings and Leafs will have a renewed rivalry.
