Kyle Dubas clearly wants Sheldon Keefe (Marlies coach) as the head coach, it's why he handed Keefe such a large salary to stay in the AHL and not interview for any NHL jobs the last two years. The problem is that MLSE handed Babcock a ridiculous contract and they'll be paying out of there ass if they fire him anytime soon. At the same time, this team has been built so poorly these last few years it's laughable.


Sure -- it's great to have Tavares, Matthews, Marner, Nylander, and Reilly... but after that the team's depth drops off the side of a cliff. They're not a well balanced team and they're certainly not a team that's built for a long playoff run. Hell, they had to trade a 1st round pick to get rid of a ridiculous Marleau contract and that pick looks like it'll be a LOTTERY SELECTION.

 

And they also don't have enough money to re-sign Reilly and Andersen when there contracts expire next year too. They'll have to part with Nylander, for sure, but the problems don't end there. Honestly, the decision that's gonna haunt the Leafs in a few years will be first signing Tavares when they didn't need too and then watching Matthews head back to Arizona (to save that franchise) when he becomes a UFA in 4 years. It's such a disaster zone, it's hilarious.

 

I also find it funny how the Leafs are desperate for depth and had Josh Leivo but mismanaged him so badly that they basically gave him to us for free. Leivo's the type of player the Leafs could use right now and they had him only to misuse him.

 

Either way -- LOVING THIS LEAFS MISERY and I cannot wait to see what happens this season. It'll be a delight for them to miss the playoffs this year.

Was gonna say a lot of this, but fortunately looked at your post here. It's incredible how much $$$ they're going to waste, frivolously building 75% of a dream house, with no foundation, on a steep grade(thinking beforehand only of the view). Then the rains come...

 

What's extra amazing is we've seen this movie before. The Burke yrs there were some huge gaffes(esp gifting high 1sts)..& it took so longgg for them to climb outa' that hole. When the retained $alary on Ke$$el Finally runs out, they'll prob be repeating this travesty, retaining $ on this next wave of overpaid, uninspiring floaters!

 

*WHAT have the media DONE?!*

 

Leafer brainwashed masses are like a gaggle of innocent, impressionable kids, who've been taken to a theatre to see a wonderful Disney production.

 

Unfortunately sociopathic elders have barred the doors, & suddenly begun playing the Blair Witch Project!

 

For the next 18 mos, traumatized Laff backers will be worrying/fixating on the quality of the 1st they'll(again) gift to a stronger US rival. I bet they'll finish bottom-10 this season, thus kicking the Marleau-can down the road to 2021. & they had all been laughing at the Sens for squandering a high pick on Duchene. At least the Sens usually got something in recent deals they've made. Leafs waste a 1st to simply Dump a player?!

 

Absolute catastrophe.

"I've always bet on Mike Babcock I'll continue to bet on Mike Babcock" sounds like he's got a gambling addiction.

What else is he supposed to say?  He can't admit defeat, and he can't throw his GM under the bus.  Either of those moves would end badly.

I always believe that Babcock is over-rated.

 

Sure, he won the gold in 2010.... but that was to be expected.  If they only got a silver medal, Canadians would be calling for his exile.  

He did win the Cup with Detroit, but that was still a stacked team as well.

who would do better with the same team? the only way I see a replacement is if somehow the Leafs fail to make the playoffs and/or get really embarrassed in the 1st round (sweep or losing 4-1 something like that).

Mike won't last there. Dumbass built a different team then mike has never coached. 

This is where the coach and Gm have to be on the same page. 

Mike coaches a 200ft game , has everywhere and has won coaching that way. Mike isn't going to change the way he coaches , that's one of the problems. 

Dumbass built a skill team and that's it. 

I could see Mike loving our team cause Petey Our star player , plays both ways and mike knows that's how you win when your star players ,play that way. 

I think AV the up tempo style he coaches could work for the leafs but dumbass really screwed the leafs with those contracts.

Almost half his 8-year contract still left.  Meh, just money...

Doesn’t count towards the cap and the Laffs have craploads of money (which their GM will no doubt waste more millions).

Aren't there people comparing Petey to Datsuik too?  I think Petey does play that way.  Plus, we have Bo leading the way with his hard 200 foot game.  When Babs gets the axe I think we should grab him.  I like Green, but (maybe?) for our team to take that next step we need a coach that's been there and done that?  We are a very young core, and I could see Babs pushing us over the top.

Babcock can fix the Leafs the same way CDC members think they can fix the Canucks.

Must be planning to resign. 

If Babs resigns, does he still get the dollars owed?  Or would he have to get fired?

Only way he can fix the leafs is if he can fire his 15 y/o boss
