When the Chips are Down, Babcock Chooses Kindl

Maybe I am reading too much into this, but I find it really odd that tonight’s regular season match up is the biggest in a very long time and Mike Babcock is sitting Kyle Quincey.

Think about it, he’s “rushing” back Jimmy Howard for tonight’s game,  but sitting Kyle Quincey in favor of Jakub Kindl?

That means one of two things.

1. He’s trying to inject some confidence in Kindl’s game, by choosing him in the seasons biggest match up.

2. He sees Kyle Quincey playing Rover on defense and trusts Kindl more at this point.

Perhaps a little of both.

Is it too late to get that first round pick back?

Here is the Freep story by Helene St. Jameswith Babcock’s quotes on the situation.
