Agree on Dermott.

I forget where I have heard this, maybe from the players themselves. Over the last 3-4 seasons Sheldon Keefe has started to use specific set-plays, and structure, that babcock uses in the NHL. It's still a developmental league, so the Marlies system being taught isn't a carbon copy, but it still explains why alot of the recent call ups look comfortable and don't stick out like a sore thumb.


Yeah, I seem to remember a lot of talk about that when Babcock arrived. It only makes sense.

I fell asleep half way through the 3rd last night and I'm just watching it now.

I think Simper hit a new low in hockey broadcasting by comparing Tommy Turtleneck's goatee to Lanny's 'tache. Gawd love him.

I mean, we like Polie just because he’s big and he’s hard...Sometimes it’s not pretty...and he whacks lots of people...having a man back there is important.

Straight from the lips of Keefe himself:

"I had a chance to sit down spend some time with him as part of this process, and since this decision was made we've exchanged some phone calls, voicemails, tried to catch up," Keefe said of Babcock. "But he's made it clear he's going to be open to having me around and involved, and I recognize the importance of that. It's paramount for me to learn his systems, to learn his language, to learn what he values in his players, and to bring that information here.

"I really look at myself in a lot of ways as an extension of Mike Babcock's staff. I look forward to learning from him on a personal level as a coach, but also to be able to be a better asset for the Maple Leafs and the Marlies. I also look at myself as an extension of the player development department as well and plan on working extremely close with those guys as well."

Anthony Petrelli quoting Colin Greening on the Marlies:

“Some guys call this the 32nd NHL team because of how much resources this team has. From what I’m told that all changed four years ago when the new management came in.”


None of those resources going on grammar lessons evidently, but what can you do?

When Torterella was coaching in Vancouver he reportedly never talked to the coach of his AHL team.

That's why Babcock will never win the Jack Adams.

The organizational focus is on producing real gud pros, not real gud prose.
