Babcock should "call out" players in the media more often. So far he's done that with Zetterberg, Datsyuk, and now Helm and they've all responded immediately after with great games.
Too bad it doesn't work with Osgood. We need Holland for that.
I actually kinda wonder about the fates of Rafalski, Kronwall, and Stuart after this season. All three are signed for two more years, but if Lidstrom comes back next year, with two young D in Ericsson and Kindl and the need for another defensive D... that's 7 guys for 6 spots. Would Kindl join the team as a #7 and rotate in and out of the lineup with Ericsson (as together on the 3rd pairing they might be worse than what we're currently seeing with Ericsson-Lebda), or might one of the three aforementioned guys possibly get shipped out? That goes against Holland protocol but with the need for better guys in the defensive zone, depending on what he does or doesn't do with the goaltending, it may be something he's forced to look into.....
