Elliote Friedman reported on Saturday night that the Washington Capitals have interviewed Gerard Gallant and Mike Babcock for the vacant head coaching job.
The segment begins at 1:46 below.
Friedman says Babcock is a “legitimate candidate” for the job.
Gallant was fired by the Vegas Golden Knights in January. Babcock was fired by the Toronto Maple Leafs in November 2019. Following Babcock’s dismissal, stories of his abuse and questionable leadership emerged. “He’s a terrible person, the worst I have ever met,” former Wings forward Johan Franzen said of Babcock. “He’s a bully who was attacking people. . . He would lay into people without any reason.”
Last week, Friedman reported that the Caps received permission to interview former Predators coach Peter Laviolette for the job.
