The hockey world often buzzes about Mike Babcock. Some people say he's a bit too tough as a coach in the NHL. His style can make players upset, and even led to him losing jobs. Some players have spoken up about not liking Babcock.

Comrie Speaks Out Against Babcock

Mike Comrie, who used to play in the NHL, recently said some pretty strong words about Mike Babcock, calling him a "bully" and a "scumbag".
"Morning folks. I was gonna leave this alone cause frankly I'm sick and tired of seeing Mike Babcock's name in all my feeds but here we are. Mike Babcock, head coach, back in the NHL."

"Babs the bully gets another chance. Am I disappointed? Yes, I am disappointed. Am I surprised? No, I'm not. His whole retirement thing was a load of horseshit right off the bat."

"I'm sure he walked into the Columbus office and told the brass whatever they wanted to hear. 'Oh I've changed' blah blah blah, which is another load of horseshit. Babs the bully ain't changing. Scumbags like that don't change."

"With all due respect to my buddies within the Blue Jackets organization, I hope this Babcock experiment is a complete disaster on every single level."

Babcock May Get Another Shot

It looks like Mike Babcock might become the next head coach for the Columbus Blue Jackets, which could be a big mess. Top players like Patrik Laine have had trouble with bossy coaches like John Tortorella before, and it did not go well.
Maybe Babcock really has become a nicer person, but it's hard to believe his coaching style has changed a lot.
We'll just have to wait and see what happens, but things don't look good for Columbus.
