For context's sake. Jon Cooper was 5-8-3 in his first 16 NHL games. It takes a second for new coaches to find their groove with the team. Can we maybe give it af****** minute?
This. It's unreal, yet so typical, that people are ready to fire Blashill 10 games in. The team is adapting to a new style, growing pains are a real thing people. Blashill is a proven winner, how about you give him a second?
Edit: and wasn't our start last year fairly similar to this? Babcock is not the end all be all.
Late 1990's to the early 2000's...Even with all that $$$, and a all-star roster the team failed to make the playoffs for 7 seasons in a row.
EDIT - I know I'm dating myself by going back to previous seasons...Just that I feel Stevie Y is by far the most deserving.
I agree. I'm mostly just being a jerk. I don't want the competition to succeed at all. Even Stevie. I just can't cheer for the GM of the team that dealt the Wings their most recent playoff loss. Same way I won't be hoping for Babcock to win the Jack Adams anytime soon.
