The fact that Babcock hasn't won this trophy despite his incredible career is a bit of a joke.
When the team was stacked he didn't win because they were too good. Now he can't win because other teams did better. Give the man the award. He deserves it.
"Fresh young blood" to replace guys like Kindl and Lashoff who are stale and old? And what if we bring someone else up and they don't solve all of the problems immediately? Forgive me if I'm not in a real hurry to bring inexperienced young players up this close to playoffs.
Also, is Kindl hate a thing now? I thought we liked him
At the start of the season one of my friends asked me if he should take Nyquist in his fantasy draft and I said "Definitely, the kid is going to kill it. Mark my words."
My friend did not listen. My friend is last in his hockey pool. I am satisfied.
I always think it's funny that everyone complains about how long the Wings leave kids in the AHL to develop but then when they bring one up everyone is mad that they take a while to adjust.
Never happy around here
