not all the blame is on babcock. its the personnel he has to work with as well. hutchinson wasn't horrible last night. the biggest problem with the leafs is defense. all 5 of mtl's goals were due to poor defending by the leafs, the defensemen and forwards. the leafs were horrendous last night. they allowed wayyyy to many high danger scoring chances against them. and yes, idk why babcock would play hutchinson vs the habs, when the point matchup that matters more, is within the division. these points the leafs lost, could be the difference between a wild card spot, missing the playoffs, or top 2 in the division. as much hype as the leafs get, the leafs were only 4 points ahead of the Habs last season, and that was with a really good pp, offense and mid tier defense. mtl on the other hand had a mid tier defense, mid teir offense, but horrendous pp that cost them 2 points to make the playoffs. if the habs pp was running at 20%, they would have made the playoffs over the leafs. also mtl lost 2 OT games against the leafs. if they have those games, again, better chance on mtl making the playoffs. now the leafs defense can only be so much improved by coaching. the personel on the ice don't hink defensively. i didn't see matthews back check all night, last night. despite the talk that he should be a selke candidate, the only good play ive seen him make defensively was on dubois a few games back. he just doesn't care unfortunat;y about the defensive side of the game. same for the defense. reilly was just trash last night. he's way to aggressive. same for muzzin, whose supposedly your best defensive d-man. u can't be that offensively focused vs a team like mtl thats faster than you, will beat u to every puck and will work harder than you. i don't blame babcock. its dubas's fault that he's spent all this money on these forwards (some of them deserve it), but he hasn't improved the defense in any way, shape or form.
