Babcock scouts a guy, gets Kenny to signing him, and puts him on line 1.
I know Babcock has never literally said they didn't "earn it", but I completely agree with you CB.

You'd think Nyquist would get the first shot since he's been with the organization for years, while Brunner has been with the team for less than half a year. But apparently Brunner is an exception. It's weird how Nyquist isn't even given a chance. Seems desperate if you ask me.

Do I hate the decision? No. But I think it's kind of hypocritical to what's been the "theme" in Deteoit for the past decade.
