On Wednesday it looked like the investigation into Mike Babcock would go nowhere. The Jackets issued a statement in support of their head coach. While it seems the investigation was over on Wednesday today, that is not the case.

According to Elliotte Friedman, some of the younger Blue Jackets' players felt uncomfortable with the interaction with Babcock, possibly due to having their privacy violated, or from their new coach unfairly forming opinions on them based on their camera roll. TSN's Katie Strang confirmed these new details, and reported that Babcock will meet with the NHL's office in New York tomorrow, where the NHLPA will address these claims in context of Babcock's previous allegations from former players.
The NHL and NHLPA will now meet today in New York to discuss the evidence in the Mike Babcock case. While some players threw support behind their coach, it looks like behind closed doors another story has been told.
Now according to Darren Dreger there is a possibility that Babcock could in fact be terminated as head coach of the Blue Jackets. On a radio appearance this morning he shared the following details.
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.

If the NHLPA decides to put additional pressure on this situation, this could mark the end of the of Mike Babcock's career. Surely no team will take a chance on the veteran if this situation turns out to be as bad as some believe it is.
