Well, unless they are Kronwall, or Ericsson, or Filppula, or Howard, or Helm... those young players he inexplicably liked.

Maybe Ken Holland made Mike like them. Executive memo or whatnot.
It's funny. Like Babcock is on the bench giving out NHL '10 strategy orders like 'Dump and chase!' now 'Puck possession!'. The system never changed, the players just weren't there. I mean, I know Drew Miller, Darren Helm and Justin Abdelkader should look like the Russian 5 but Babcock needs to have things handed to him. Which is why he was such a loser everywhere else. Now that the puppet master is pulling the strings all these idiot media members and players look at him like he's the best coach in the league? Laughable.
