      Apparently Babcock when Marner is a rookie asked him to make a list of role models and a list of lazy people on the team?   And then read it to the team? lol Both Babcock and marner confirmed it happened now. marner being a rookie didn't want to get on the coaches bad side and then was mortified     Why would a coach try to foster a toxic environment?

      Apparently, this is part of Babcock's MO; his way of playing head games with the players and asserting control. Word is starting to come out from former players of his, and this time people can't say "Well, that's only Mike Commodore, and everybody knows he's a nut."

      Not only did Babcock force Marner to make this list of players, but he then went and told Marner's teammates about it, essentially "So, this is what the kid thinks of YOUR work ethic". Dirt bag move. Darren Dreger reached Babcock for comment, and he played it off by saying that it was a failed attempt to teach Marner about the value of hard work.   I could possibly buy that excuse if Babcock had kept the list a private matter between himself and Marner, but that's not what happened.

I'm fairly certain there were coaches like Babc0ck too who used to torment players with all kinds of means.

      From TSN:   "Speaking publicly for the first time since he made the allegation on Twitter, the Nigerian-born Aliu said Peters made the remarks in the AHL’s Rockford Ice Hogs dressing room before a morning skate during the 2009-10 season while the 20-year-old Aliu controlled the team’s music.   “He walked in before a morning pre-game skate and said ‘Hey Akim, I’m sick of you playing that n----- s---,’ ” Aliu told TSN, with Peters, who was then the Ice Hogs head coach, referrin

      lol. Babcock inherited a Scotty Bowman trained Red wings squad with Veterans like Lidstrom, Yzerman/Fedorov trained Selke winners like  Datsyuk and Zetterberg.   his coaching duties in such circumstances is like asking a millionaire investor to make a 10% profit 1 year out of 10.   Dave Lewis(Who?) was coach between Bowman and Babcock and his record is 96-41-21, but he only ever had one other coaching gig in Boston with an abominable record.     Babcock with ve
