In Topic: Coaching Search Thread a.k.a. the Jeff Blashill Thread

How does everyone feel on our assistants, Granato, Brewer and Hiller.. want them back? How much input does the next coach (presumably blashill) have? Do they want to be back? 


I think they all had one year deals. I dont really have a problem with them all coming back again. Some familiarity for the older players who have not been coached by Blashill couldnt hurt. Thoughta?

It's crazy I've never been so on the fence about a red wings decision as this one. Usually i have a very good idea of what I want, but I will cheer just as hard next season whether it's mike or Jeff or someone not named John tortorella behind the bench. Would love Dave Tippett but not at the expense of watching blashill go be successful somewhere else

Wrote a post longer than my most prized essay and it just disappeared and now I'm lazy so here's the short. I think we need to look at this from a family decision as I can all but guarantee the two most important thoughts are Mikes and his wife's. Nobody else is going to matter more. Period.

A) mike and wife both want to stay
B) both want to leave
C) they both have opposite opinions.

Now, we know that mike and his wife's first conversation on the topic of where he will be next year did not go well. This eliminates option 1 and 2 and leave only number 3.
Next, I know I'm digging here but hear me out. I recently read, I can't find the quote but I believe I read it on this forum so help me out if anyone knows. Mike Babcock said something along the lines of: the easy decision for my wife and family is to stay here. They have friends,family and ties here. My son is going off to school and he wants to come back to Detroit for thanksgiving. Blah blah blah

Now taking into consideration that they argued and what mike has said about what the easy family decision would be, one can assume(risky I know) that it would be his family and wife who want to stay and that mike does in fact want to leave. You know what they say about assuming, but that's my thought process and to me, it doesn't seem unreasonable.
