I actually thought he looked good last year too. And the year before that as a matter of fact. Each guy is different and responds differently to various coaching systems. I think Kindl is a guy who doesn't do well if he's in and out of the lineup on a nightly basis. He's always had all of the tools, it was just a matter of letting him settle down and find his game. Also, I think that Babcock tends to try and make players into things they aren't all the time. In the case of Kindl, you've got a guy who excels in the transition game, but Babs was really trying hard to make him into a stay at home type of guy, which under utilizes his skating ability, shot, and puck handling skills. All of which are what got him to the NHL in addition to his size.

Get off the high horse. Not like she was 10."
