I like Babs a lot and this was a good interview, but I have no trust left him in whatsoever when he says "the best players will play."
It does sound though like Babs really wants to find a way to integrate the kids on defense sooner rather than later. Which who can blame him when his other options include Quincey, Kindl and Lashoff?
Babs also said the Wings didn't hand out any bad contracts in free agency. Out on the lake when the Quincey deal happened?
