Awesome! 

 

We should have a #babwatch #babswatch photoshop war.

Just saw this on twitter.

This is what $50Mil in hype will do to a desperate fanbase.

It's hilarious tho.

Even better than no seeds in a watermelon laffy taffy.

You're correct, I did forget that. Maybe he's not over-ripe enough yet, tho.

 

Babcock did mentor Blashill as an assistant.  Seems many here forget Blashill was an assistant coach with the Wings for a year in the 11-12 season and then was...sent down...promoted? to head coach of the Griffins.

It was going to be the Manny Legacy Toll Plaza on the U.S. side, but then they figured everything from Edmonton would just get right in.

#2607011 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by FireCaptain on 10 May 2015 - 04:59 PM

Absolutely not accurate.

 

My personal situation - was on a fire dept. Ready to be chief, rode as chief when chief wasn't around. Got tired of waiting. Other chief opportunity came up at other department. Let my old chief know I was looking - common courtesy - not because I wanted to leave, necessarily, but because it was time to move up. Ended up not getting other chief spot but then old chief retired and I promoted into the position I wanted originally. 

 

I didn't WANT to leave department #1, but I needed to test the waters to see what else was out there and to see if, in fact, I was as ready as I thought I was.

 

Babcock's not looking to get promoted, but why - after working this hard to be this ELITE as a coach - would you not want to stick your toe in the pool and at least see what the temperature was?

 

IMHO, it makes perfect sense. 

 

 

the fact he is looking at other options to me means he is on his way. If you are happy in your job/work you dont go looking for alternative employment. Im not saying he shouldnt do it, it just sends me negative vibes that he'll be here next season. The wings front office have stopped any team from talking to Blashill which also sends the signal to me that they fear Babcock is on his way and they want Blashill as his sucessor. Babcock works with the AHL roster pre-season only so i dont see how that warrants 10 years!?, anyway im not here to argue mute points just expressing my feelings on the situation that has arisen. But if Babcock is still the Redwings head coach come Sept then ill be very surprised.
