Facebook's "On This Day" feature has started to bring forward some interesting hockey tid bits that I had posted there in the past. On today's date in 2015 was the Red/White game in TC for training Camp. I remember being so excited because they weren't dumping the puck in; I remember Z dancing at the blue line refusing to send the puck in for a 50/50 chance to get it back. What an exciting brand of hockey! ....and then the season started, the joke was on me. In any case, more interesting was this Babcock quote from 2014, which I will leave without further comment and up for discussion: "I used to walk in every year in training camp," Babcock reiterated Thursday on the eve of training camp, "and tell them the tie goes to the veteran." Not anymore. "Ties goes to the best player," Babcock said. "If you're ready to play, we got a young group, you're playing. We'll find a way to do that."
