Guy is a former goaltender, which leads me to believe he would coach the defense. WMU defensive numbers so/so last year. Even though that is still mostly on players, and it was this guy's first season behind the bench.

My vote goes to Bob Boughner.

Only thing about him is that he left Columbus to be closer to his family. Yeah Detroit is closer to Windsor than Columbus, but my guess would be that he will not be coaching in the NHL next year. Columbus or Detroit you are still on the road a lot.

Well, Dreger said it would be "surprising" and this is certainly out of left field...

He may be a finalist but there's no way he picks him. It was probably a family member or friend who leaked this as a means of getting his name out there for other teams moreso than a claim that the Wings are really leaning towards him.

I'm a Bronco, took WMU to the Frozen Four, and played pretty well in the NCAA tourney. It would be a tragedy to lose him from the Broncos but would love to see him in Detroit.

Dunno much about him besides the numbers at Western Michigan last season. But if Holland and co. are interested. Hmmmm why not? :thumbup:

Frozen Four NCAA, CCHA Championship game, Hockey coach of the year by all three major college hockey publications. That is quite the accumulation for a single year of coaching. I would love to see him in the NHL working for the Wings. He certainly did my Broncos well, after years of mediocrity.

Western did not make the Frozen Four (lost in the first round of the NCAA to Denver). Anyway, what Blashill did with that team in one season was remarkable.
