I bet Babcock is going be the head coach.

UsernameWasTaken 05-18-2013 10:28 AM

The head coach will probably be Babcock.

I don't think Carlyle should be there at all.

InjuredChoker 05-18-2013 10:47 AM

Babs as HC again, I think. MacLean as assistant.. maybe Hitch, too. Don't see Carlyle there.

pdd 05-18-2013 11:15 AM

MacLean should coach, with Adam Oates and former Columbus head coach Gerard Gallant as the other assistant.

Could definitly see MacLean as assistant to Babcock.

They did work together in Detroit so there's familiarity between the two.

I wouldn't mind a coaching staff of Babcock, Maclean and Hitchcock. They would bring a strong defensive mentality, and Canada's biggest problem at the tournament is going to be stopping other teams from scoring. I'd also like to see some coaches from Europe get consideration due to their experience with larger ice

Fuzzy Bunny 05-18-2013 11:31 AM

I'm surprised Bruce Boudreau is not in the running. Has won the Jack Adams, is a finalist once again. The big name players perform great for him and love to play for the guy and I believe he would succeed coaching a team of all-stars on international ice. Not that I think he should be the coach or is a better option than the great coaches regularly running the show, but thought he'd have his named dropped once or twice by now.

Jussi 05-18-2013 11:35 AM

Maclean's a good choice but Carlyle?? Babcock better be the head coach.

habsrule4eva3089 05-18-2013 11:57 AM

Coach Babcock, Hitchcock, MacLean, and Ruff are my four. I'm guessing they are going to try keeping the 2010 group together and adding MacLean will be a terrific addition. I wouldn't be surprised if they have input from different Canadian coaches in Europe as well such as Doug Shedden.

Should reunite the old team of Babcock/MacLean/McLellan.

Yep. Or put Ralph Krueger in there, he has a lot of IIHF coaching experience.

ahthorne 05-18-2013 12:40 PM

Babcock + MacLean + whoever ... that would be ideal/excellent.

I thought it was already official and Babcock was already chosen? Why are we even talking about this??

It's for the assistants positions, no?

Canuck21t 05-18-2013 03:43 PM

I want Andy Murray to be part of the coaching staff. We need someone with international experience and success.

Yeah that's why I picked him and Hitch as he was in '10 team and they believe in playing the same way.

Well, we Finns wouldn't mind it :laugh:.

For gods sake, you can hand pick the best coaches in the world and you choose Carlyle?

This.

The rest of the world thinks Canada definitely needs to make Ruff head coach.

Hollywood Burrows 05-18-2013 05:44 PM

Babcock/Mclean/Mclellan is a no-brainer. Make it happen, Canada.

On the contrary, I want Canada to have the best coaching and team at Sotshi so there won't be any excuses should they fail to medal (I consider the top nations to be fairly close at these tournaments with the in-form team being random every time and medal finish being good for any country).

Anything besides gold is not good enough for us Canadians because its our game. :yo:

LeafOfBread 05-18-2013 08:07 PM

What's wrong with Carlyle? :huh: Why exactly is he getting crapped on in this thread?

2nd most playoff wins since '06 behind Babcock, Stanley Cup in '07, and his teams are almost always competitive. He's able to get a lot out of players and have them on the same page
