If I had to guess, the younger crowd doesn't like Blash as much as they thought they would. I know the veterans all spoke highly of Blashill in their interviews today. Zetterberg straight up said he thought a coaching change was necessary and thought Blashill did well for his first year.
Helm sounds sour though. Can't imagine what Jurco and Pulk think of Blash.
100% agree. I think the ones who came up under him in GR thought it would go different but he expected them to abide by his system. Have to wonder now if that's why the vets got the ice time. Maybe they were more willing. Who knows.
From watching all the interviews today including players Blashill and Holland there seems to be some tension for sure. I get the feeling the organization is disappointed in how certain hopefuls performed. Zetterberg saying the next ones need to earn it says a lot in my opinion. I don't want them to give up on Tats and Gus but perhaps they feel entitled to something because of last year...I have always been a fan of Helm but maybe he believes he has outgrown his role. Going to be an interesting off season with most players predicting changes. Maybe there are some bad apples...
Anybody see and Nyquist comments or anything from Green?
