In Topic: Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

I wanna see a team like we had in the mid to late 90's...Scoring goals, and punching faces, and being at the top of the league...I can dream can't I?

Forgive my ignorance since I know little about the guy.....But what exactly has 'The Wiz' done since thumbing his nose at Detroit, and signing with the BJ's for big $$$?
 
I haven't heard much about him these past few years...Maybe there's a reason.


He put up 4 seasons averaging about 50 pts a season

If he was so good he'd be playing , especially with his cap hit being so high

We don't need another problem on our cap


I can pretty much promise u he's better than 4 of our starting D next year. And he'd be a whole lot better than adding David Clarkson or Ryan Clowe.

Well, at least we know who Number9's whipping boy will be this year...


I hate on him, but he's the best option for coach

Have I ever had a whipping boy? Typically I'm on here defending whipping boys from you

Why is everyone so excited to give a cannibal our head coaching gig?


Let alone one that can't feed himself, Holland does everything for this team.

Oh really?
 
Funny how his Wiki page has no success or coaching experience compared to Blashill.
 
This is his coaching Experience:
 
 
 
That's all


Assistant to head minor leaguer to head NHLer, and went to the finals in the AHL

Similar

 
So did Babcock's. Also, Eakins was thrown into the dumpster fire that has been the Edmonton Oilers. The problems with that team were far deeper than coaching. 


So what makes good coach is a good team???


Looks similar to Dallas Eakins old resume
 
Eakins coached NHL players he groomed in the AHL? Eakins Associate Coached the Oilers prior to that? Eakins was groomed within a program with  tradition that has a 24 year legacy of winning?


Like I said. He has zero experience as an NHL head coach. His only plus is a small familiarity with the roster.

That's not much

He was won at every level he coached at.
 
2008 Clark Cup Champion
2010 Blashill led WMU to a top-four finish in the CCHA; best year for WMU in 15 years.
2011 USCHO Coach of the year
2013 Calder Cup Champion
2014 AHL Coach of the year.
 
But he can only coach kids fed to him.
