1. Things are different
When the Leafs swapped out Randy Carlyle/Peter Horachek for Mike Babcock, the most immediately apparent beneficiaries were young, super-talented guys that those coaches seemed, for some reason, to really not like very much at all.
You've got your Jake Gardiners and your Morgan Riellys, sure, but the guy who I thought was probably going to take the biggest step forward under the new regime was a fellow called Nazem Kadri. It is rare to see a player get so badly mishandled by a coach, and then be maligned for having been mishandled, in the manner that Kadri was over the final few years of Carlyle's tenure.
