I'm not sure Renney as a coach really used Shanny well either.

I remember reading an article during his last year with Detroit, where he said basically that Babcock was the reason he was still scoring 40 a year. Something along the lines of Babcock didn't treat him like a HOF player and yelled at him constantly to keep moving his legs. It didn't really seem like Shanny lost a step but more was gliding a bit too much...

...and perhaps Renney gave him a bit too much respect.

(For the record I am a Renney fan, but he never seemed to get heated at his veterans/stars)
