I'm confused, we have struggled to score goals all year...our style is still the same, if anything we are worse offensively under Blashill.
Sure. Never said that the changes produced more goals. One doesn't exclude the other.
Two examples that stood out to me this season : Our defenseman are allowed to pinch more often. And our center often goes deeper into the zone instead of securing high against breakouts.
Can anybody here name for me one player from last year's team that has been better this year. This is the biggest kick in the gut for me and why I'm starting to question Blashill a bit. Holland is, of course, dead to me already.
Hard to find something positive Blashill has added to this team. He hasn't figured out the NHL. If next year is the same he should be fired mid season. Pretty obvious when watching this team is poorly coached. Idk why people expect Blashill to learn the ropes with the wings. Can't spend 4 years with a bad coach. It doesn't benefit anybody but himself
As bad as todays game was I think Blashill is the right coach for this team. He openend the Wings up for a more attractive, offensive style. It might fall flat this year but I take Blashills approach over Babcocks defensive first style any time.
And by the way : It's not over yet. We still have all the chances to make the playoffs.
