I actually believe it as well. In fact while I'm just speculating now, I wouldn't be surprised if Holland and Babcock had a discussion about this possibility when they were trying to extend his contract. Its been clear we don't have any superstars in the pipeline for a few years, so they both knew the decision to try to battle and continue to slip into the playoffs vs tank for a complete rebuild would be fast approaching. I don't see Babcock as the type to want to tank. Meanwhile Blashill has continued to give Mrazek and Sheahan and all these other under-performers plenty of ice time without doing anything to really improve their play. The PP is almost historically low. Players who we know are decent/good are playing poorly. There isn't a whole lot of cohesion on the ice between players. The Wings are last in the East. This is the organization tanking.
