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

Good players still need a good coach to steer them all in the right direction.

 

 

What's that? Put pucks in the net? Try to win the game?

...and butt pats.  BoS for COACH!

Blashill has never coached in the NHL before and had success in the AHL because he was spoon fed great prospects by Holland

Thankfully he's still got that guy feeding him.  Maybe he'll add a new entree to the menu this offseason?

 

man.  now i'm hungry.

I am very excited to see what Blashill can do with this team. But what I am most excited about is there are no guarantees where players will line up on the roster... Will Ericsson remain on the top pair? Will Smith get a look on the power-play? Will Weiss have a chance at the 2nd line center spot? Will Jurco be in the top 6(9)? Will Pulkkinen be utilized better in the offensive zone (left side faceoff circle), Will Abdelkader / Helm remain in the top 6 (not necessarily saying they shouldn't...)? Will Ferraro / Callahan get a look on the 4th line? A lot of question marks... Going to be an exciting training camp. Can't wait!

This. x1,000,000,000. 

 

I asked earlier in this thread, "How did Blash use Weiss in his conditioning stints with GR?"

I wonder solely because, maybe Weiss gets a chance under Blash the way he didn't with Babcock...

I mean, the guy did have some bright spots, some glimpses of his former self, and they were quickly buried*

 

*Maybe deservedly. I don't really remember exactly how it all went down, but I have hopes for the guy. 

I hope he gets another chance and I hope he can show he's still a capable second line center. 

I'm not saying HE IS.  I'm saying I hope he gets another chance at it and somehow pulls it off.

The King better get it together tonight. 

6 goals against in the last two games... Hell, I'd be thinking about starting Talbot.

You mean James "Detroit doesn't pay fair market value" Wiz?

No I think they mean, James "the guy who got his money and is probably looking to have a bounce back year with a new team" Wisniewski.
