Ken Holland On Babcock/Franzen

12/02/2019 at 5:23pm EST

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Asked if a player ever came to him and accused Babcock of abusive behavior, former Wings general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press, “no. The answer is no.”...

Holland told the Free Press he talked to Chelios on Monday afternoon, and that Chelios admitted the incident he describes with Holland did not happen after the Nashville game. Chelios said he was in the locker room when Holland told players that if they had a problem with Babcock, they were welcome to address it with Holland in his office....

In a text message to the Free Press, Chelios said he made his comments about Babcock and wanted to leave it at that. Babcock did not return a message requesting comment.

more, basically a recap of what was said in the Swedesh newspaper and the audio from Chelios this morning...

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
