Who is going to be the head coach next season?

Eventually everyone will get tired of talking about Mike Babcock, but until that happens, let’s go down this road again. This should probably be their most important thing to deal with in the off-season is who is going to be the head coach of this team? Will it be Babcock? Will it be someone new? If it is someone new, then who is this new person that is taking the reins and are they qualified?

It will be interesting to see how this whole process goes because if Babcock comes back, things will stay the same in the sense that everyone stops talking about the coach and we worry ourselves on other matters. However, if he doesn’t come back and signs elsewhere, we worry about who replaces him and what in the world becomes of this team post Babcock.
