There were people on this board who actually were saying Babcock wasn't a great coach, he had Lidstrom, blah blah blah.
Guess that argument's done, eh?
A coach's impact on the game can sometimes be way overestimated. It's not like MacT was a better coach than Babcock when he "outcoached" the Wings in 2006. Most of the time, it's the performances of the players on the ice that make the coach look good or bad.
