A Little Bitter Tim?

from Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly,

What was going through the mind of that brilliant strategist Mike Babcock this week, while he was skating players hard on the first day of his Team Canada Olympic orientation camp in Calgary?

Talk about brain cramps from one of hockey’s more obnoxious coaches – and we haven’t heard a single person question that serious lack of judgment.

Most of Babcock’s players hadn’t seen a pair of skates – much less laced them up – since last spring. True, Simon Gagne had been skating for two weeks. But he wasn’t skating hard.

Is it any wonder Gagne tweaked his right groin?

Good thing they had insurance, huh? Just to protect the players from Babcock.

continued & more topics too…
