Nobody took the Red Wings’ first-round flop last spring, when Detroit was ousted by the Edmonton Oilers in six games, harder than the passionate Babcock. How could the first-place team perform so poorly in the playoffs? Babcock endeavoured to find out.
His father, a hard-rock mine pit boss, instilled in him a long time ago that if you want to get your employees to work hard and perform, the boss has to exhibit an even more inexhaustible work ethic. So Babcock scoured the game tapes from the Oilers-Red Wings series and arrived at training camp last September with a new message and the video evidence to support his new theme.
