Very interesting comments from Babcock, very passionate - especially about the next generation. That's basically the challenge going forward - how good will Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan and Dekeyser be? They are the next generation, the guys that will take over the driving of the bus. Will the continue to be good complimentary players or will they step up to be The Guy?
Babcock to the Pens it is. His man-crush for Crosby is no secret, he's been making subtle digs about the lack of high end talent on the Wings for several years. I can't see him turning down the chance to coach Crosby and Malkin whilst they're still in their 20s.
