DETROIT (AP) Mike Babcock stood at the front of the familiar dressing room at Joe Louis Arena, this time for something of a farewell address.
He became choked up after about a minute of talking, and at one point he even held up an old newspaper from a decade ago.
"I dug it out here today - I'm going through and cleaning out my office," Babcock said. "There it is. That's my first day on the job."
