As hard headed as Babcock can be, if a guy is playing like the teams best dman he would get the ice time.

A lot of you guys cant see past the fact that hes sheltered out there because he has too many turnovers to play big minutes against top line players. Not a big deal hes a late first and hes finally coming around but he hasnt been amazing out there and even though he has a lot of "hits" he doesnt seem to be punishing anyone at all out there given his frame. Hes still got a ways to go but hes at least looking like a legit NHLer now
No offense, but you're being ridiculous.

Not that Jared Boll is a superstar, but when he goes in smashes Boll into the boards and takes the puck from him, that's "punishing."

I've got no problem with criticizing Kindl for his giveaways, which, IMO, are getting better with confidence.

But Kindl's physical play far exceeds any expectation I had for him. And if you don't see it, you're just a hater like Fabricoh for whatever reason.
