On Mike Babcock, Ken Holland, and my Red Wings fandom

I’ve been mulling for a few days how I need to approach the Mike Babcock story as it relates to his time in Detroit and the increasing evidence that the shitty behavior outed in the wake of his firing in Toronto obviously originated before his time with the Leafs.

After all, I’ve been with WIIM a long time and this site has always had something of an interesting spot in the coverage of the Wings. We have never been credentialed by the Wings outside of training camp. We have not been given access to the team and have instead largely carved our niche as fans sharing our community and our observations with other fans.
