#2673152 Potentially new GMs

Posted by Dominator2005 on 23 April 2016 - 08:42 AM

Stevie Yzerman GM
Dave Tippet Coach

After Scotty we had Lewis... then we got Babs and now we have Blash...

Next coach should be good one

I just have a gut feeling that it'll be yzerman.. Seems like a very red wings move. Also his contract and Hollands are both up the same year; after the 2017-18 season I believe.

Either way, I think holland manages out the rest of his contract then either retires/steps back into a different "higher" front office role or signs a new contract with the wings..

Yzerman? Admittedly, I don't know enough about potential GMs to make an informed decision. I just know that Yzerman is a demi-god and has that certain, as the French say, I don't know what.

I swear this is ground hog day every year....

Except this year no one here will be complaining about Franzen's contract or us bringing back Cleary.

 

(I'm going to pre-empt someone's joke of "don't speak too soon.")

Svechnikov is not close to being NHL ready in my opinion. He's at least one full season away, possibly two... Jumping from junior (especially the Q) to the NHL is not easy to do, even for the most elite of players. I wouldn't even be surprised to see him struggle adapting to the AHL at the start of next season, let alone the NHL...


#2672809 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Gotta admit I wasn't a fan of his work this season. Just about every player on the team performed worse compared to last year's individual stats. Mrazek played on his head for half the season and Larkin played on his head for half the season, and I think those two factors are what got the Wings to the playoffs. I haven't seen anything particularly impressive from coaching all season long. I guess he has a long summer to do some homework on how to be an effective NHL coach and Holland to maybe grab some fresh blood, but I'm not particularly excited with the state of this team right now.

Hate ? Cmon man, are you like 12? The guy is a hockey coach.  He got out coached big time and has a lot to learn at this level but at the end of the day he's just a dude and dudes make mistakes.

His voice sounds like Babcock's.

Just read on mlive that Holland said only injury was Abbys dislocated finger

Saw that too. Also saw him say this season was disappointing. Can't remember him saying that recently. Maybe this means he will kick monster truck tires.

Holland will end up trading Pav's contract if he leaves for Russia, there's zero doubt about that regardless of what he's said.

You must be new here having that much faith in Holland...

Someone will need to splice that shift together with their first shift. Sad moment man.
