“I’m a big believer that the best CEOs in the country … their people move on and do things,” Babcock said. “Some people stifle people and don’t let them grow and there’s no succession plan. I don’t believe in that. I believe that not just for players, but for coaches, it speaks highly of your organization if people are growing and developing and moving on. I’m proud of it. I’ve got lots of guys who I’ve coached with who are coaches now. I’m proud of that fact. To me, that’s what it’s all about.”

—Red Wings coach Mike Babcock, speaking with NHL.com about the success of former assistants like Paul MacLean, now with the Senators
