Quote of the day … Mike Babcock

DETROIT — Wings coach Mike Babcock on Johan Franzen’s net-front presence on power play.

“When you’re the Mule and you’re net front you want someone to shoot the puck otherwise you’re standing there and wondering what you’re doing,” Babcock said. “You’re standing around and you have dust on you, you don’t do anything. Homer used to come to the bench and yell at me to tell them to shoot, shoot. And Mule’s not doing that, but he’s thinking the same thing. If they shoot he’s got a chance to generate offense. If they don’t shoot, he goes and gets the puck back and stands there and watches them pass it around. You have to shoot to score.”
