Maybe they perform better not playing for Babcock? Maybe they like not getting their lines juggled every two shifts? Maybe they're just surrounded by a deeper and more balanced team?

I just find it funny that Abdelkader had to go play for a different coach outside of the Wings system for Babcock to gain a favorable impression for him.
I am a little miffed at these comments too. So i can guess that Babcock was really impressed with Brunner and Gator. Well if that is the case why isn't he pimping Tatar as a favorite to make the team, he was much more impressive than those two in my opinion. Just mystifying.
