In Topic: Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

It's also hard to compare him to Dave Lewis, who inherited a great team with loads of Hall of Famers.  I could have coached those teams to the division title.  As for the playoffs,  I'm not sure if Bowman would have solved Giguere and Kiprusoff.  It just wasn't happening in those two playoffs for us.  


I don't remember much of the series against Calgary, but against Anaheim I agree with you. I don't think the Wings could've played any better that series. Giguere stopped like 35+ shots against them, stealing every game. Hell, that first game where they went into triple overtime he stopped something like ~65 SOG and only allowed 1. Very unfortunate for the Wings.

My perfect scenario that was never gonna happen was Blashill as the head coach with Babcock in a more senior role.


I remember when Babs started in Detroit he said in an interview that 10 years is about the longest you should ever stay in one place professionally - so it seemed obvious he was going to look for a change.


I think Blashill as head coach will be a positive for the organization. A new voice, and someone who knows the future leaders of this team better than anyone. He'll be great for integrating guys like Pulkkinen, Marchenko, Ouellet, Athanasiou and Mantha into NHL roles. I'm hopeful at least. But it's important to get a good replacement for Blash in GR. That's my only serious concern.


A new voice? He sounds exactly like Babs... it'll be like he never left!  :tounge:
