DETROIT -- Mike Babcock is tougher on forward Tomas Tatar than he is on any other player.
That's because the Detroit Red Wings coach thinks Tatar, who's 24 and in his second full NHL season, has so much potential.
"As long as he keeps working on his details and is committed to doing it all the time, he's going to get there," Babcock said. "That's the biggest challenge for a young player. What allowed you to be good last year isn't good enough this year and the years to come. You got to keep getting better if you want to be the best. That's what guys like [Pavel] Datsyuk and [Henrik] Zetterberg have done. So for our young players, they have great examples."
