Losing No Laughing Matter To Howe

from Brian Hedger at NHL.com,

“This is a number of years ago, [but] we lost a game 3-2 and he came down afterwards and said, ‘Coach, I don’t know if you know this, but during the game someone was laughing on the bench and you guys were down 3-2,’” Babcock said. “I said, ‘Who?’ and [he said], ‘No, don’t worry about. I already looked after that.’ I thought that was good enough. There’s lots of great stories, but that’s one that stands out in my mind. [Those guys have] a tattoo on them for life. They’re proud Red Wings and they should be.”

Maybe Gordie should take another trip down to the locker room sometime soon.

Gordie should just set up a booth at the locker room entrance and pull guys into every day until the “floaters” get the message. But even that wouldn’t be enough for The Horse’s Ass. For him, I’d like to see something a little more direct – like a punch in the face from Terrible Ted. And it wouldn’t hurt to do the same with Errorson.
