It's funny watching people defend Babcock on this. Just like they defended Lashoff on the top pairing (a decision that cost us several points in the standings)
I do not know why Babcock waited for so long to put Ericsson with Kronwall intstead of Lashoff, but he did it in the end.
I think it will be the same with Tatar. Babcock simply can't have Abby and Cleary with Datsyuk. Everybody sees that it is wasting Datsayuk's talent.
or if Babcock really wants to keep those 2 lines, then
Dastyuk needs a player he can pass to.
A huge problem with Abby and Cleary is:
1. They do not know how to get open so Dastyuk can't pass the puck to them
2. They can't pass the puck to Datsyuk
3. They can't score (Obviously Abby 1 point in his last 35 games.

Yet, Babcock plays Abby on the PP. Abby has no business there. I would rather play Eaves on the PP than Abby.
