Back up the money trucks! Babcock to Toronto, Leafs Nation reacts
So much for that AP report saying that Mike Babcock was working on a contract with the Buffalo Sabres. Unable to resist the big bucks of the Toronto Maple Leafs despite the current state of disarray, Babcock signs on for 8 years and $50,000,000!
Babcock’s salary in first three years of his eight-year deal is believed to be as much as $8M per year.

Hockey media, especially in Toronto reacted quickly as did the Leafs passionate fanbase. What results is great stuff.

I hope Babcock enjoys his time on that plane, since it’s the last time for a while he’ll see two wings with Leaf logos doing their job.
