If Babcock does sign here, I hope he keeps Horachek around. In Florida, he got lumped interim head coach and same here. it is like the captain jumps off a sinking ship and asks his first mate to take over.

@.JVR. @NinetyThree No.. but the question is in 3-4 years, Kessel would be 29-30, Phaneuf will be 32-33. Can they still be looked upon as part of the core to win at that point? We cant realistically say that with the current group Leafs would win before that point. If not, do we have players who can replace them?

Great article Anthony - so question is *if* we consider Kessel, J.V.R., Kadri, Phaneuf, Gardiner, Reilly & Bernier as core - what is the window to win a cup - 3-4 yrs? My fear is by the time, we are truly contenders, Kessel, Pjaneuf etc may be on the decline.

@dlb Mad From globe and mail 

"His first job with the team was taking care of sticks and water bottles as a dressing-room attendant when he was 11. Concussions ended Dubas’s playing days when he was 14, but didn’t curb his passion for the game. He took a job as a hockey operations assistant with the Hounds, exposing him to player development and the logistics of running a junior franchise. He moved to St. Catharines, Ont., in 2003 to enroll in Brock University’s sports management program, balancing a full-time course load with scouting junior B and midget games for the Greyhounds."


He used to play but got a bunch of concussions at 14.
