Pav is playing down to their level now, he was a complete non-entity yesterday. Only time he ever plays like that normally is when he's injured.
Kind of hard when you make passes that no one can handle or just turn it over. Some of the passes even yesterday Datsyuk made, most skilled players would have created scoring chances but instead Cleary and Abby just pin themselves on the boards just to turn it over.
I don't understand how Babcock and Holland are letting this go, everywhere I read people are calling out Babcock for that line (facebook, twitter, blogs, media articles and even on the broadcasts). I seriously have no idea what he is thinking anymore.
The only thing I have a problem with Babcock is I wish he would play Tatar with Datsyuk. Tatar could learn a ton playing with Datsyuk, and considering Datsyuk doesn't have a lot of time left with the Wings (especially seeing who he's playing with) they need the younger guys to learn as much as they can from him.
