Mike Babcock says his teary-eyed goodbye to Detroit

By

Mike Babcock accepted an 8-year, $50 million contract to be the new coach of the Toronto Maples Leafs, another Original 6 team. Babcock had a successful 10-year run behind the bench for the Red Wings, winning a Stanley Cup (2008) and helping to continue the franchise’s impressive 24-year playoff streak. But it was time for both sides to move on.

Jeff Blashill, head coach of the Grand Rapids Griffins, is the favorite to take over for Babcock.

Thanks for your time, Babs. See ya on the other side in the winter.
