I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal. People know me. I'm very important.

Dave Lewis out....Mike Babcock in?
Dave Lewis out as coach of the Red Wings isn't a big surprise. Detroit really did not live up to expectations in the playoffs in his 2 seasons as head coach. But Mike Babcock? Can't say this move excites me much. As I recall, he preached a pretty tight defensive system that wasn't a lot of fun to watch. Given that the NHL might make some rule changes to encourage offensive play I do not know if he is the best choice for the job.
Guess we will have to wait and see, but I was a little surprised.
