The Malik Report

It’s a little clunky, but here’s Mike Babcock’s interview on 105.1 FM

I tried recording Red Wings coach Mike Babcock's interview on Detroit Sports 105.1 FM, and it came out a little clunky (you can hear Tweetdeck updating and a Skype message coming in) as this is the first time I've ever recorded anything on my computer, but I snagged the vast majority of the interview (Babcock started the interview being asked about the Tigers' management, I believe), and Babcock emphasizes the importance of adding Daniel Alfredsson (as well as the recruitment process) and his hopes that Darren Helm will return to health in a six-and-a-half minute interview:

Update: MLive's Eric Lacy took note of some of Babcock's comments:

Babcock appeared to have a good time on the show; he wished the hosts luck, told them to their "A game," and even shared his thoughts about upcoming Lions season.

“I like the progress they’ve made," Babcock said. "And two years ago, when everybody was really excited about them, I don’t think they were as good as people thought. Last year when everyone was down on them, I don’t think they were as bad as people thought."

Babcock also gave the show a bit of news when he mentioned that Red Wings center Darren Helm is "making progress" from a back injury that limited him to one game last season.

"The progress is very slow," said Babcock, who remains optimistic Helm will return for the start of the 2013-14 campaign. "He's been skating; he's been working out."
