I think the problem is Hollands roster. We know Babcock can play with a gritty line up and muck it up defensively to win games, and he can coach the skilled game. But the roster right now has a bunch of half ass guys.

Tootoo, Helm, Abdelkader are the only bottom 6ers really that could contribute to that style of play that Babcock could coach well with. Cleary in the top 6 when hes healthy fits the mold too.

The team needs identity, Babcock is coaching a skilled lineup because he has guys who dont play hard and hustle all the time but have some skill like Franzen. If you turn that bottom 6 into something with identity and have Datsyuk and Z each run a solid scoring line Babcock would make them winners but Holland wouldnt even let babcock keep Smith up this year and it cost the team a first rounder.

Kenny better start making some solid moves fast or I'll have him in the hot set, not Babcock
