Don't know whether some people still remember the interview babs made after lose to Nashville few years ago. He indirectly talked to the organization, especially Holland, that the team needs more offences with grits and sizes. Does not have to 1st liners but who can perform in big times like playoffs. Between the time and today, there has been no prominent help from Holland to Babs to structure the team in the way he wanted. Instead, what he got was a group of players whose prime was already over. I do not think it is a matter of money for babs decision. He seems to be tired of the lack of winning legacy in detroit.
Personally, babs will not make decision very soon even after the end of the final. Think he will see how Holland moves pieces that can make this team as a legitimate contender. If not, Babs will walk away. I hope this time can be a final waking-up call for Holland, who has been failing every season in the field of getting right players.
