Give Babcock Credit

from Pierre McGuire at NBC Sports,

Detroit is now the No. 1 team in the Western Conference and it looks like the Red Wings will hold onto that position.
The Wings have talent, veteran presence, and one of the most amazing defensemen to have ever played the game in Nicklas Lidstrom. They also have one of the most underrated coaches in the NHL. Mike Babcock has done one of the best coaches jobs in the NHL….
Babcock can be in your face with his style, but it works. He brought a surprising Anaheim team to within one win of the Stanley Cup in 2003, has won the World Junior Hockey Championship for Canada, and the Men’s World Championship. His coaching pedigree is excellent, but for some reason Babcock never gets any praise.
