    Too much with the "I'm the smartest guy in the room" mentality with babcock. His comments are so condescending. Fine to do that with the media, but I can't see him being very different in private.

    Shanahan looks pissed.

    We completed wasted the window we had with the Nylander, Marner, Matthews ELC's combined with the Rielly, Kadri, Gardiner bargain deals.

    Now shit gets tricky.

    What a waste is right.

Starting around the beginning of March though, we were much closer to the middle of the pack in both. Not good enough, but still a big jump forward. That's how we played for most of this series. Removing the last couple stone handed ****s from the blueline, and inserting the Rosen's and Sandin's of the world will make a pretty big difference there. Mind you, Jake has historically been good at that but was a little less good this season...and he's not coming back.

    I think this is the answer. There's no way Dubas wants to work his nuts off all season, get rid of the stone handed defenders, fix or remove the Marleau situation, move Kadri and Brown, put together a faster, better lineup and then have Babcock come into training camp, get in front of cameras and complain about not having enough right handed defenders, not being heavy enough, etc.

    The cracks were showing in the second half.

    The way he used Muzzin was criminal. Dubas has to be seething at it

    I think if it was 100% up to Dubas, Babcock gets fired. But what's Shanahan thinking?

    He hasn't been afraid to make changes before, I bet he's thinking the same thing.

    I think Shanahan was hoping it would work.

    But it obviously is not.

    What doesn't make any sense from Babcock either is he had big guys in Matthews and Muzzin and still didn't use them. So I don't know what the **** he wants.

    Back to back embarrassments? Babcock should be let go. He’ll land somewhere else (Winnipeg?). He’ll be fine. Time to pull the ripcord.

    It really really puzzled me when Dubas acquired a player Babcock in theory should LOVE and he didn’t lean on him.

    Not only that but he kinda complained about getting him initially.

    This is the one thing that I keep returning to in my head when I question whether or not Babcock actually gets punted this summer. Last year, after under playing Matthews, Babcock had to fly to ****ing Phoenix in the summer to mend the fence. Matthews is coming off of a playoff performance that shut up everyone questioning him after last year's, and he played 18 ****ing minutes in a game where the Leafs didn't kill a single penalty (Babcock's usual excuse for Matthews not getting enough ice). Freddy Gauthier was taking shifts in the 3rd period, and Auston Matthews played 18 minutes. Auston is going to be ****ing choked.

    LOL Damien cox just defended Babcock's usage of Matthews by pointing to the TOI of Bergeron and Marchand. Little details not mention, THEY WERE LEADING THE ENTIRE GAME.

    Babcock has never been a good post season coach. Only 1 Cup. Though the media make it seem like he's hockey's Bill Belichick.
