how bad has his coaching been ?

I actually think the Leafs have been playing really well, even in the losses.

His player usage just makes me want to bang my head against a wall though. Hainsey and Zaitsev playing more 5v5 minutes than Muzzin and Dermott is just unacceptable. He just canít help himself and consistently throws our two worst players (by far IMO) into a lot of high leverage situations and itís just not necessary. some of the forward allocations donít make any sense either, though they are less damaging because the Leafs have a lot of good Forwards so itís hard to screw that up too bad.

I was listening to Marc Savard, and he was complaining about the same thing (Hainsey should be 3rd pairing, Muzzin #1...Marleau should be #4 line)
And I was thinking, maybe this current lineup isnt going to be what Babcock is going to use in the playoffs? Maybe he's just easing Muzzin in. I feel like it sounds like Im making excuses, but who knows how Muzzin feels right now, what Babcocks long term plan is.

I guess there is something to be said though if by game 70 you arent using playoff ready lineups

I was listening to the same thing.

Glad to hear that Savard is back doing something. He seems to be on the know about stuff. I remember he was tweeting out about Nylander and the figures involved. He was bang on.

Iíll believe it when I see it, but given past history, colour me extremely skeptical.

I would never draft Domi but I did say I am truly surprised about how he was doing However his true family colors showed up last night.

The Domi family are punks

This is quite amusing. I am looking forward to seeing this but unfortunately I am in Richmond Hill Thursday night.

no problem. I'm sure Bab's coaching experience and how he's prepared players like Holl all season will make everything just fine

I have never been so excited to see a regular season game. I am heading to the mall with my daughter (Upper Canada) and expect to be there by 7 pm. She is going in while I sit in my car streaming the game on Fibe TV

Seems just like last year the last 16 games is just determining home advantage in first round against Boston.

Unless an epic fall, which we dont see, we will finish second or third in division.

Lets stay healthy and get through these last few games..Maybe have Sparks play like 5 or 6 games to keep Freddie rested for the playoffs.

The defence depth is getting challenged, but it hasnt been a disaster quite yet...Freddie has had to save these guys most of the year .

They either didn't get along when they played together or Barzal didn't appreciate Tavares' "the kid who won the Calder" comment during his first interview as a Leaf. Either way, Tavares ain't no saint.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

I wonder what teams records are this year when playing the 4th game in 6 days. There has to be a betting edge.
