Many had their doubts when the Columbus Blue Jackets brought Mike Babcock on board, and unfortunately for the team, those skeptics might have been proven correct.

Babcock's Controversy

Allegations surfaced regarding a breach of players' privacy by Mike Babcock, who was reportedly found to have accessed and scrolled through private photos of his players. In response, the NHLPA initiated an investigation into the matter.
While some veterans, like Boone Jenner and Johnny Gaudreau, defended Babcock, it appears that the wave of concern from younger players has significantly intensified the investigation's focus.
"It appears things changed... when information was received that some of the younger Blue Jackets were uncomfortable with what had occurred. That appears to be the major focus of the investigation."

Job in Danger?

Now, insider Darren Dreger has provided a crucial update: Babcock's job could be in jeopardy pending the investigation's outcome.
"Based on the information that has been discovered and percolated to the surface in the last 48 hours, I think there's a chance Babcock's job could be in question... I'm not reporting or predicting it's going to happen, but there's a chance that happens."

It's evident that this situation has turned into a disaster for the Blue Jackets. Whether Babcock remains with the team or not, he will undoubtedly remain a deeply controversial figure. The Mike Babcock era in the NHL has been declared 'over' numerous times; one must wonder when it will truly come to a definitive conclusion.
