Wings coach Mike Babcock on the firing of his former assistant coach Paul MacLean

DETROIT >> Wings coach Mike Babcock had this to say about his former assistant coach Paul MacLean being fired by the Ottawa Senators on Monday.

“It’s always disappointing,” Babcock said. “As a coach, it’s real simple, you side with the coach every single time. This is a little different for me because (Senators general manager) Bryan Murray’s a real good friend of mine as well. Mac’s a good coach, he’ll bounce back. It’s always an initial shock for you and for your family and for your ego. But that’s the business, too. I think Mac’s a real good coach and he’ll coach again if he wants to.”
