Whatever makes you sleep better. Lombardi blows Bergie out of the water.
Habs are always smarter than everyone else and do their own thing so....
If MB hadn't given an early extension to MT, we could be one of the teams talking to Babcock...just saying...
Montreal isn't perusing him, so this should be locked and moved to out of town thread
Did we even put the paperwork in to talk to him? If not why is this a thread
According to TSN, only Toronto and Buffalo ended up doing it, although he visited a few others ( Including San-Jose today).
His name is BargainBin... get it right
I disagree. Subban was really raw and could have gone either way coming out of junior. Boucher harnessed him in and taught him how to control a game from the back end. Developmental years are crucial, and I worry about Galchenyuk being stunted even though he's going to be good no matter what cause of his skill level, he could be a lot less than his potential.
St. Louis asked for permission per Lebrun, even though Hitchcock is still employed.
What does Babcock do that is so different from every other coach in the league. Where would he have been without Lidstrom for all of those years, we don't have to look past our own crease to see how one of the games best players can make a team and a coach look good. Babcock has also had the benefit of a steady crop of good players over the years and that has been a big factor in his success. I would love to see him choose Edmonton and take that team to the next level, that will take a good coach.
He is IMO over rated.
He still plays favourites and old guys over rookies. I think he could take a Buffalo team and make them good.
Edmonton... not so sure. People think that McDavid will be able to play D and goalie al while juggling bowling balls.
Edmonton still needs a lot of work to even sniff the playoffs.
Give BargainBin 3 more years and we shall see. You are just talking through your hat right now.
People will be eating a lot of crow just like they did when I said that McCarron looked really good last off season.
Posters here think that MB will say everything he thinks in his presser and not do anything during the summer.
Smh. At least we will be two who can remember these posts.
Last season or preseason because everyone changed their minds about Big Mac during the preseason.
After development camp in the summer.
Ahh kk because I liked him from his first preseason with us ... I remember him throwing the body and driving the net almost like this years preseason.
Yea but people were calling him a bust and laughing at me for drawing comparisons to Lucic after I saw him at camp.
Let's just say people are eating lots of crow right now.
Or we will be doomed in a torrent of pure **** if MB **** this thing up. Could go either side unfortunately
Yes that is what I'm saying. Its about long term not short term. I'd rather see him have a successful career rather than a successful rookie year. I think he would be a better player if he had more time in Sarnia after his injury.
MacLegend can do all that, and more. He will score 85 goals and have at least 100 assists next year, if he gives 50%.
Man, if Babcock goes to Buffalo I don't know what to think. I never thought in a million years he'd choose there. I guess he was serious about setting the financial market for head coaches in the NHL.
I hope he gets his wish for the contracts to be public like players.
There is a lot to like about Buffalo and their org though.
Fans love their hockey just like in Detroit and their prospects + young players will be tearing up the East in a few years.
At least Buffalo has some intresting and promising players in their pipeline unlike the Leafs.... With the Edmonton coaching job being already filled this is his best choice if really does want to leave Detroit for more money and a new challenge.
Plus I am not so sure that he wants to go in the media fire of Toronto.
Hold on the crow until he does anything at all kk?
Babcock is very similar to Therrien. He's very tough on young players and have his favorites.
Separate names with a comma.
