A vet, old-school guy complaining that Babs treated him like everyone else and made him work for his ice-time? I loved it. Made me feel better about players like Hunwick and Polak. He's not gonna play guys just because he likes them or takes care of vets, he plays the guys who work for him.
I love it personally. He also made a point to say that "No UFA is gonna want to play for Babs". I love that too. Players often cash in on July 1 and then shut it down and don't work. Babs is gonna work everyone. People (sports radio) were talking about it's a shot at Babcock, i actually think it did the opposite of what Chelios may or may not have wanted
