Babcock

Recommended Posts

That's a no for me as well. Sheldon Keefe would've been a much better bet imo. There's bound to be a team that wants Babacock though so his firing might start a few dominos falling.

I dont like a babcocks person but our team needs some shake-up. If he didnt work with us - next offseason gives  options.

We already have a coach who loves playing 4th liners way too much. We don't need someone who would do it even more.

Well the leafs just hired him so...

Absolutely yes to Babcock, and there are some rumors that he saw this coming and was feeling out other teams over the past week or so.  So hopefully that's why Ray hasn't fired Hynes yet.

Whatever his reputation, the indisputable fact is that if you give him a good roster he'll win significantly more games than he'll lose.  So either you'll forever stop using the gifs of Ray with the sunglasses because he hasn't assembled good players, or you realize that we need a proven coach, who is there to be had for nothing and at a monetary discount since the Leafs are still obligated to pay him for a while.

And his reputation is probably not accurate.  He certainly did not stand in the way of Matthews and Marner becoming very wealthy men.

I do think Babs is a little overrated, but compared to Thulsa Doom we have behind the bench this would be an obvious improvement.

That and I doubt a better option is waiting in the wings somewhere.

He played fourth liners to the tune of the team averaging nearly 3.5 goals a game the previous two seasons, come on now.  All coaches play fourth liners to a degree, you're kidding yourself if you think you'll find a successful coach that doesn't play fourth liners 8-10 minutes a game and look for grinders.

And btw this is just embarassing

He has an assload of playoff experience and a Stanley Cup, I think I would give him a whirl.

Toronto aside, Babcock has had success in the past. I'd absolutely give him a shot here.

I think you meant Heinz. But yes, I'd take a can of Duncan Hines frosting over the Hynes we have now.

Cooper/Babcock - sign me up. 

Not sure I'd be as happy with Cooper.

Babcock can win, he’ll hold these mental midgets accountable

but he also benched Matthews and Tavares in 3rd periods when down one. And also barely (relatively speaking compared to other 1’s) in key situations.

 

but hell its a change. Go get him Ray

How ridiculous that Hynes is the fifth longest tenured coach. Clearly he has done nothing to warrant this top 5 distinction. Fire him yesterday.

There are questions about Babcock but on his worst day he would be an upgrade over our loser of a head coach. And fire him whether Babcock wants to come here or not.
