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

If its true he's making $8m a year for the first few years I could see a clause in the next CBA about coaches...
Could you imagine choosing between a first line center or a decent coach?

 

I dont see this ever being a problem. A team will never pick giving 8 mill to a coach over the likes of Stamkos or other 8mill players.

Only way Blash doesnt get it is if he turns it down.

So does flipping Babcock for a 3rd from Toronto count as Hollands best trade the last coupe years?

I remember during a Wings-Leafs game this year going on a Leafs forum GDT and all they were talking about is how boring Babcocks play was. Enjoy Leafs fans.

I've believed all along and even spoke about it on 97.1 The Ticket, Detroit/Holland had the upper hand the entire time, either they keep Babs or have Blashill in hand.  No doubt in my mind that Holland pretty much knew this was happening, at least was 90% sure.  I don't doubt Blash is named to be the next HC today.  Blashill has to be flying high right now!  I am too! At least Blash should play the kids in the right spot and not put players in the top 6 that don't belong there!  Jurco and Pulkkinen will prove that they belong higher than the 4th line!

 

I feel Blash is more than willing to give the kids a chance. Look at baby Bertuzzi. He came in with a couple games left in the season and now is getting important minutes in the playoffs.
