Personally I think that his opinion of Tatar is dead wrong.
Yeah he says things like that, but nothing Tatar has done during actual games has shown any of this. The kid is quick with the puck, is patient and has vision with the puck, has been great in the offensive zone, and has shown nothing to suggest that he's a liability defensively on the ice.

Dan Cleary on the other hand loses more puck battles than anyone can count.

Babcock has limited options due to injury, but he still has options. He just seems like once he's set on an idea or player, it is what is it.
