His statement is that there approach is now different. Of course there isn't any examples - it's a future proclamation.


For the second time, I realize that.  Which is precisely why I'd need for him to prove it, this year, in training camp.  Because it hasn't ever been true before.  Even in the past, when the rule was "tie goes to the veteran", the ostensible rule was that in situations NOT TIED, the best player would play.  But that wasn't the case either.  So for all of posterity, I get it.  Babs says the best player will play.  Prove it.

Isn't that what Babcock is saying though? Up until now he's given the jobs to the veterans, this training camp he's giving it to the best player. This being the first season with this philosophy, he's hardly had a chance to go back on it.


I think we all agree that's what he's saying.  Our point is that "actions speak louder than words".  I'll believe it when I see it.


Additionally, it's a little bit of double speak by Babs anyway.  In years past he's said "tie goes to the veteran".  But there was no tie when they kept Nyquist down a year ago.  He was legitimately BETTER than any number of forwards on our team.  Likewise Jurco is currently BETTER than any number of forwards.  So even if Babs hadn't "changed philosophy", those guys should still have been (or be) in the lineup because they're not tied with guys...they're already better.

This story will be over come october, Babs already said he will not be talking about it by then and just go to the next question. I'm very sure Holland will do the exact same thing.


Which will only lead to more media speculation, since nothing was finalized.  Which was my point.

Actions speak louder than words Babs...


I just said the same thing on Mlive's comment section.  I really can't think of a single time in which this has been true.

I'm already sooooooo sick of this story.  Until he signs a contract this is going to be one long, speculative, pain in the ass.  Not because of Holland.  Not because of Babcock.  Because of media goobers who see the value of rabble rousing. 


Prepare yourselves LGW, this will get worse before it gets better.
