Is this a promotion or demotion or lateral move? I'm not sure what the hierarchy is for coaching. Asst coach for the main league, or main coach for the asst league...
In any event, I'm interested to see who fills the void.

Randy Cunneyworth?

Did he handle the forwards in MTL before he was named head coach? Because if so that could be an option, he's a very good coach, very underated and underappreciated in MTL because of all there dummy fans.

I'd say its probably a lateral move. They say he's great with the youngsters, so this makes a lot of sense for the Wings organization. Someone with that skill needs to be in GR more than Detroit, and I anticipate that the Wings will benefit greatly from this move.

What D-coach candidates do we have? Cheli? :dntknw:

Chelios?


I would love to see Larionov or Fetisov but I think they are happy with what they are doing...

Okay.... so who's out there that coached Suter and Parise and they'd *love* to play for him? You know, since "Shero drafted Suter and Sid and Zach are BFFs" and all...

They haven't invented holographic remote coaching devices so that he can be in his cushy new house in Sweden and behind the bench at the same time.

I think Ryan Suter's mailman once delivered for UPS in the Minneapolis area and I think the Parise's were on his route...not confirmed. I would call it an E3 though....

In my eyes, this is a lateral move for him, but I wonder how Blashill sees it. Would have liked to see Gerard Gallant here, but the Canadiens snatched him up recently.

I agree on the lateral move bit.

Grand Rapids needed a coach on short notice. Why not give the reigns to someone who has had great success coaching youngsters to get to the NHL? It really is a great fit for Blashill. I like this! I have been a season ticket holder for the Griffins and I love going to the games. I just don't like seeing them play so inconsistant from one night to the next. Fraser is a good coach, but I think it was time for a change. I think that Blashill can really tear it up in the AHL as a coach.

DeKeyser just retweeted a tweet that announced the hiring. Not that it means anything but...
