    Dubas blamed himself for things that weren't his fault, while Babcock kept saying it's somebody else's fault.

    Dubas is the one who has shown to be a leader.

    Your running out of things to criticize Dubas, just like you did with Phaneuf.
    Keep up with your false narrative though.

    We would be in a better state if Keefe and Dubas were here earlier.

    Likely a Lou fan. You know someone is desparate when he is blaming Dubas and Keefe for this.

    Agreed, if Boudreau comes here it's for a head coach job.

    You don't take a long-time successful vet coach like Boudreau and make him an assistant to a 2nd year head coach.

    I could have done a better job in finding guys that can provide depth to help the coaches in that regard," said Dubas. "I think if there’s blame to go around for that it should go to me."
    He blamed himself for the PK being bad as well.

    Is this where I pretend to have given this guy a single moment of thought during the 2019-20 season? Okay, what's my agenda and how does this event fit it? I'm prepared to call him incompetent or stupid or a suppressed genius if necessary.

    Time for Hailey Wickenheiser to break the barrier.

    Im not sure if you’re being sarcastic but this isn’t the worst idea in the world. The players constantly speak highly of her

    Not sarcastic at all. @JustAShadow is correct, she's also in medical school right now. So I can't possibly speak to whether she would take the job. But I think it's a legit option.

    It'd be cool, for sure. Who knows if coaching is actually her wheelhouse or not, though. As far as I know, her roll with the club to this point has been more of a prospect liason, than a regular coach of any sort.

    Should use Greg Moore. He sucked as the Marlies coach, so this is a good excuse to get him away from that job and get someone better in his place. Apparently he has a great hockey mind, so perhaps letting him focusing on creating strategies on the PP as an Assistant Coach won't be as overwhelming as he looked as a Head Coach in the AHL.

    Dubas will look at someone to compliment Keefe. He could look to junior coaches again. A name I hear as a fit is Jake Grimes. Currently in the Q junior league but long time assistant prior to success as a head guy. Only time will tell I guess.

    It happens a lot though. Look at coaches like Jacques Martin and Lindy Ruff. They were two successful head coaches for many years and now they are assistants to head coaches with less experience.

    The timeline could become interesting if the NHL season goes late and the OHL season is waiting to start but has their camps starting.

    Four years ago, a championship CHL head coach came to the Leafs to make a name for himself as NHL caliber.

    Now coaches leave here to return to the OHL.

    Great work Dubas. Just a stellar record of success that people clearly want to be a part of.

    When you've never been a coach in the NHL, the hardest way to get in is being an assistant. You're way better off being a head coach somewhere else and working your way up. Mcfarland tried the assistant coach role in Florida and here, and probably decided that he wasn't gaining enough traction in the pursuit of a head coaching job for him to stay in that type of role. He went back to a place he was comfortable to try and reset.

    Honestly I would have offered him the Marlies role as I'm not a fan of Moore, but it was probably the best move he could have made. Look no further than Steve Spott. Went from the Marlies head coach that made the conference finals, to Leafs assistant, and now 6 years later is still waiting for a head coaching gig somewhere.
