The only slight reason you give is that there are other more experienced people available for the job of assistant to the traveling secretary, but don't name them.
And let's not forget that only 7 of Babych's 22 years in the NHL was with the Canucks. It's not like he was a Canuck lifer that the club felt indebted to give a job to.
Babych's statement suggests that he won't be doing a lot of on ice stuff, but that's hard to imagine. It makes me wonder if his job title is a way of getting around formally calling him a coach, and facilitating his ability to work with prospects on the farm and players at the top level.
Frankly, I don't care what we call him. He was a sturdy defender, and knew the fundamentals of the game. Good to have him (or anyone who knows solid D, alumni or not) working with the Canucks.
