Team Canadas coaching combination for World Cup jerseys

TORONTO -- Doug Armstrong did a very smart thing Henrik Lundqvist Authentic Jersey in deciding what to do about his head coach for the World Cup of Hockey. While giving the gig back to Mike Babcock certainly seemed like a no-brainer, the Team Canada general manager sought out feedback from a handful of players from the Sochi gold medal team, specifically wanting to hear how they felt Babcock got them prepared. And while he downplayed his role, I'm here to tell you that when Jonathan Toews speaks, people listen. "We did have a brief discussion, I don't know how much my opinion mattered," Toews said over the phone Thursday. Right. Nobody is going to care about what a Jaromir Jagr Womens Jersey guy who has won three Stanley Cups and two Olympic gold medals has to say. When Armstrong chatted with the decorated Chicago Blackhawks captain, he heard that Toews was impressed by Babcock from playing for him in two Olympics; but he also heard from Toews that adding Quenneville to the mix would be a grand idea. "Absolutely," said Toews. "The feedback was, obviously there's the success we've had the last two Olympics and Mike brings that experience that I think is something that's needed for Team Canada if it wants to continue that success on that stage. But I don't see anything wrong with having a guy like Joel come in, too, and offer his expertise and bring what he knows about the game. I'd say in a situation like that, the more the merrier, I think it's going to be a great mix. I'm definitely happy to see Joel get that recognition and that opportunity." So while much of the media opinion was divided between whether it should be Babcock or Quenneville as the head coach for Team Canada's World Cup team, Armstrong did one better in managing to include both guys. Toews sounded genuinely excited that his http://www.officialnhlco.com/lee-stempniak-jersey-c-1_309_327.html Hawks coach finally got into the Team Canada mix. "Pretty awesome," said Toews. "If there's someone that's deserving that hasn't had the opportunity it's probably Q with what he's done with our team the last number of years and the success we've had. He's established himself as one of the most successful coaches in the NHL and the history of the game. I think for a Canadian, whether you're a player or coach, that's the ultimate level is either to go to the Olympics or World Cup on that international stage. I'm super happy he's getting the chance to do that." The key, of course, was to ensure that both Babcock and Quenneville were cool with the idea, the latter with taking a secondary role to what he's used to, and the former sharing his bench with the guy who's won three of the past six Stanley Cups. Babcock's reaction when Armstrong approached him with the idea? "I said, 'We want Q for sure,'" Babcock http://www.officialnhlco.com/marc-staal-jersey-c-1_309_315.html said Thursday after Hockey Canada held a news conference to announce the staff. "I don't make the decisions on who coaches the team, I just answer the question. To me, if they had asked Joel (to be head coach) and he would have said, 'Babs, you want to be on my staff?' I would have said sure. Real simple for me." The feedback confirmed what Armstrong already knew, that it was right to hands the reigns back to Babcock.
