I was beaten to the punch on big news?! I can’t have this 🤣

Yeah I’m fine with this hire. But Keefe better figure out the playoffs. 

He won’t have Marner and Tavares to use as scapegoats for the Toronto media… wait… he just needs to know reporters favorite things and let two have friendly banter with one another.

i like the hire. Hasn’t missed the playoffs as a coach, for us, that’s a huge start, then figure out winning.

i think our core is overall better than the regular season phenom core 4

fvck. YES!  

Dude came off so genuine and sincere in that video after he was axed from the Leafs, I wanted him after that.   I have no doubt that he'll have high standards, and I think this is a coach that the players can get behind. 

October can't come soon enough.

I would say Chief in Toronto should be announced within 36 hours. Once that happens I would expect Keefe to be announced on NJ. 

 

 

I am still trying to find out if the job was ever offered to Chief. The previous conversation I had gave me the impression that he wasn't in a position to accept an offer since their wasn't one. 

It wasn’t.

Happy to see his name isn’t ruff or Greene honestly, I think this guy has a lot of potential to be good for our group. Next season will tell, let’s hope they come out looking like a brand new team all together. Now let’s see what happens for a legitimate goalie.

Idk if I have ever seen you happy about anything. This is definitely a day to remember.

All kidding aside anyone who’s not at least somewhat happy about this…

”AAAAAAA YOU JUST KNOW HE’LL KEEP LINDY!”

”JUST WATCH HIM HANG ONTO GREEN!”

”IT’S GOTTA BE WOODCROFT BECAUSE THE DEVILS ARE SLAVES TO METRICS!”

Think Fitz did pretty well here, all things considered.

I will absolutely admit that those thoughts all crossed my mind at some point before today.

I thought Woodcroft was a possibility, but more as Plan B.

What would be cool is to get Woodcroft as an assistant. I wonder if that’s a possibility.

Lol, mostly true. I was happy last playoffs too but this year hasn't been very fun for anyone, right?

Really happy with this. Keefe has done well as a coach at both the AHL and NHL levels. Not his fault that Toronto never had the roster to get it done.

 

Posting this clip and another to try to get people excited about the hire

Good intermission speech, meanwhile Lindy was probably taking smoke breaks between periods

Imagine your coach working the refs a bit

He did a great job in Toronto. The Leafs issue was not coaching. They actually looked really well coached this year and against Boston. The problem was the roster construction. One of the best coaches in the league imo. Tremendous hire.

Got to admit, I'm pretty fired up after that speech. Simmonds looked like he was about to go through that wall in the background there. lol

Keefe is probably still away with his family, MGMT probably wants to let him wrap up his vacation

Yeah I’d guess a press conference will be next week after the holiday weekend.
