If it were 2009 I'd be all for it, but now he's too slow to forecheck effectively, too weak to win board and puck battles, and too unskilled to play a puck possession game.

He's not gritty and he's not good defensively anymore. These are just excuses people are throwing out there to explain Babcock's decisions.
