Abdelkader wasn't horrible. He's a serviceable 4th liner. But come on. Waivers aren't an issue. And he might actually benefit from the demotion, unlike anyone else who might have been considered.
I agree. This is just the way Babcock speaks, a few seasons ago (maybe it was last season) Babcock said something to the effect that some player is going to be a real NHL player someday. He didn't mean that the player wasn't already an NHL player, a good one at that, he just meant that he's going to be really good one day.
