Change coming as Babcock looks to shake up Maple Leafs roster

By the end of the night it was clear that changes are in the air — with the precise details to be filled in soon. If Froese stays, one of Holland or Arcobello presumably has to be sent down … and Froese is definitely staying.

This is Babcock starting to shape the Leafs roster.

Even though they were once again let down by special teams and shaky goaltending, those issues can’t be corrected overnight. All the coach can hope for now is a higher level of effort than he saw during the second period against Arizona.

“I’ve never seen us compete at that level,” said Babcock. “So we’re not competing at that level. That’s not going to happen, we’re going to fix it.”
