1. Among MLive's Ansar Khan's "Ask Ansar" questions and answers:

Q: Clearly the Wings need a change. Will (general manager Ken) Holland give (coach Jeff) Blashill another year? Or could J.B. be done at the end of the season? Is Blashill too much like (Mike) Babcock? It is sad to see how many players have regressed over this season and last. – Brian

A: I think Holland will evaluate after the season, but it doesn’t look good for Blashill, who has two years remaining on his contract.

Too many players have regressed, a list that includes Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar for the second year in a row as well as Riley Sheahan, Danny DeKeyser, Justin Abdelkader, Luke Glendening, Dylan Larkin and Petr Mrazek.

Some players are going to take a step back every year on every team, but this list is too long. And the list of players who’ve improved from last season is too short (Henrik Zetterberg, Anthony Mantha, Jimmy Howard).

The players should take much of the blame, but coaching also is a factor. And most of these players, for a variety of reasons (contract, low trade value) will be back. So, given a third season, could Blashill get the most out of them next year? That is one thing Holland and ownership will consider when deciding what direction to take this team.

A historically bad power play, difficulty scoring, poor starts and blown leads also don’t bode well for Blashill.

PLEASE, PLEASE fire him after the season!!!!
