I feel like this might have been taken out of context, though. Didn't Babs just say that he wanted Marchenko to play here OR go back down and play in the AHL - just not sitting as the 7th defender? I feel like NHL only used part of the quote.
No, Holland said that in a radio interview yesterday. Babs' comments here are different, but shouldn't come as a surprise considering he's made his preferences clear in the past.
