WE NEED A YOUNG FLOATING JEFF BLASHILL

Just goes to show how impressive detroit was at shutting Tampa down with how much Tampa has been scoring since. Hope that trend continues with Blash!

A worse version of Babcock that can't get an even more talented team than the Wings out of the first round? Hitchcock wears on his players within a couple years everywhere he goes. Blashill already has a relationship with most of the roster in Detroit. I get the inexperience angle, but Hitchcock doesn't make sense to me given the situation here and the Red Wings plans to continue getting younger.

 

Hitchcock to me comes off as a coach who has the same systems and style as Babs, but is a s***ty people person. Babs is more intelligent in terms of getting the best out of his players. Players have a history of tuning Hitch out. 

 

Bylsma is madly overrated. Players like him, but a good coach will coach circles around the guy. 

 

In other words, Blash is the guy. If Blash turns out to not be the guy, go after Tippet.

So apparently Holland said they're looking at a short list of head coach candidates right now, specifically mentioning Blashill and Bylsma. Pretty much what most of us here figured.

 

He was just deflecting attention away from Blash so he could focus on the Grifs. My money is on no other candidate ever being reached, let alone interviewed. Blash is the guy.

He hit the nail on the head with the never underachieved comment. Hope Blash can keep that going!

Glosses right over the coaching search and heads right into talking about pro-scouting for the off-season, the combine, the draft. 

 

Say what you will about his moves as a GM.  The guy is as professional/classy as can be.

 

Definitely. I mean, the only thing you can knock him for is playing it too safe sometimes. Could be a hell of a lot worse for sure.

Ken Holland is gonna adress the media at 4 p.m. ET.

He's a smart cookie, all he will do now is play out the cards he had prepared. I for one hope that the first card he waves out is Jeff Blashill as head coach of the good old Detroit Red Wings.

 

Don't get your hopes up. That's something we won't hear until the end of the Griffins' playoff run.

Just keep Bylsma away. 




#2609066 About the 3rd Rd. Pick compensation...

Posted by marcaractac on 20 May 2015 - 02:17 PM

I wonder if this will happen now.

 

It won't




#2609040 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Agreed.

 

The Leafs roster isn't as bad as many think...They haven't had a good coach since Pat Quinn.

 

Honta yo, baby!

Holland: I just injected the Red Wings with a lethal dose of POISON!  **nWo music**   lol

 

You mean he traded for Phil Kessel?!  :ninja:


It's gonna be funny as f*** when the Leafs fire him in 2 years and still owe him all that cash.
