Mike Babcock Fired by Leafs

Recommended Posts

LOL!!

Listening to The Fan 590 in The Great Satan on my way up the country ... it's 7:35 PM in Halifax. 

They just broke the news now.

@Brawndo is so good that he scooped the Toronto media 😂😂😂😂😂

Mike is not a good person.

I don't like Mike.

Him and the Great Satan where deserving of each other. I'm sorry to see his time there come to an end.

I'm going to assume this is sarcasm. Please let it be. Babcock has been exposed.

If by this you mean that he's a coach who can't excel without absolutely top-level talent, I can't agree more.  Reason # nearly infinity why I like coaches who can do more with less.

Is Babcock the first coach fired this year?  Odds had to be pretty high on that at the start of the year.

Meaning like 500-1, 1000-1

I feel like this needs a smiling Ted Nolan response but I'm lazy and on mobile.

OK.  Certainly many had both Cherry and Babcock gone before the '20-'21 season began.  Did anybody have November for both getting canned?

You think Keefe is going to drag those guys out of the mud?

My sincerest hope is that he has no business coaching in the NHL.

About 10 miles from my house.  Looking forward to a visit.  I was always a Duff's guy growing up however.

Eh.  They opened a Duff's in Grapevine, TX, and it was just another wing place in a strip mall.  I like Duff's in Buffalo, but the one here is totally forgettable.

OMG I just figured it out:  They fired Babs cuz Sportsnet wants to hire him to replace Cherry!  We get to hear mumblespeak EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT!

I will say that the Leaves fan at lunch today didn't expect Babcock to last more than one week from today.  He wasn't being hopeful; this was his prediction.

So maybe it wasn't Babcock... but instead Datsyuk and Lidstrom and Zetterberg and Franzen and Holmstrom.... and also Giguere and Kariya and Oates and Vishnevski and Rucchin and Sykora... and... Byslma?

This is a surprise, but a welcome one. Now, if only Keefe can somehow mess this up to our advantage.

Old Babs has a mug like a catchers mitt. I’ve always referred to him as old leatherface mostly because I hated him when he coached in Detroit for no particular reason other than they seemed to win a lot. Sour grapes I suppose but he’ll write his own ticket and be back coaching before long despite possibly having the game pass him by.

My wife is a Wings fan and she's hated him all along.

Mike Commodore can eat my ass.

I remember him diving like a beotch when Danny Briere whispered on his vejayjay behind the net in game 6.

 I think Babs is the biggest fraud, dummy there is, but that whiny beotch Commodore can go pound sand.

But would he have said that back on October 1?

General consensus among Leafs fans, I think it's fair to say, is that this was absolutely coming and it was absolutely necessary.

Not much surprise that it happened or in its timing among that community.
