By the time the Wings pick the big skilled guys are gone. Babcock understands this because he has input on who's drafted. He doesn't loathe small players either. He just seems to hate players because he's such a hard ass. He won't coddle players or cater to egos and he's set in his ways.

Now, if he's going to be fired it's going to be by a new GM who'll put his own guy behind the bench. I just don't see Holland parting with Babcock anytime soon, in spite of their suspected conflicts.
