Maybe they will start getting awed Tuesday night. That would be a good time.

Interesting comments from Babcock. He made a similar comment after their game 7 win over the Ducks regarding the cap issues that are forthcoming with the Hawks.

I find it amusing that he says that we can't have all the talent, while he coaches the most talented roster in the entire league! Argh!

Section 313, I think he was implying that the young players on the Blackhawks might become greedy when its tine to renegotiate contracts. Players are willing to take pay cuts to play with the wings...

Yeah, I know what he meant and I'm aware that players like playing for the red wings organization. I wasn't ripping his comments at all. It just found it a little humorous (maybe slightly flattering) that he made a comment about talent that would usually be directed at his wings.
