Hockey Notes Of Interest

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- Mike Babcock’s next job should be university professor: He could teach revisionist history. Babcock peddled a bunch of truths and half-truths to TSN’s Pierre Lebrun in an exclusive interview the other day. If this was written as a book, it would have to be termed fiction instead of non-fiction. And, really, Babcock has to give up on the ‘I’m a mental health advocate’ platform when there would be a long list of former players who would gladly disagree with that claim. The Marner family was so upset about Babcock’s treatment of Mitch — and aren’t happy with Babcock peddling the all-is-well mantra — that, if you go back, Marner’s father refused to go on the dad’s trip one season with the Leafs. The reason: He didn’t want a thing to do with the coach. And that kind of behaviour is pretty rare.

- I don’t mind hockey statistics, as overrated as many of them are, but I do mind people who can’t talk about the game without referencing some inane or irrelevant stat.

- Detroit sports: the Lions stink; the Red Wings stink; the Pistons stink; the Tigers stink.

So how’s that Stanley Cup parade plans coming along, Steve???

Uncle Mike didn’t answer a question or two from the guy, didn’t he?
