Just Four More, Mike

Think Uncle Mike hasn’t been thinking about this for a while?

When asked what it would mean to see his name on the Stanley Cup, Babcock said he never used to get close enough to see the different names on the hallowed trophy.

That is, until a visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, where Babcock spent considerable time reading some of the names on the Stanley Cup.

“I’m not thinking about that. I’m not thinking about my name,” said Babcock, who suddenly stopped and was visibly moved.

Babcock quickly composed himself and took a swig of water.

“That’d be nice,” Babcock said.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
