#2633976 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by gcom007 on 29 October 2015 - 07:11 PM

This thread is utter and complete nonsense. I'm not saying I think Blashill is guaranteed to turn it around and be a great NHL coach. That remains to be seen, but that's the wholef****** point!!! Nine games doesn't mean s***! I had more tempered expectations than many because I believe the NHL is a far tougher test than anything he's faced before. I'm not convinced he's going to be a great NHL coach simply because he's been successful before. It certainly bodes well for him, though it offers no guarantee, especially at the NHL level.


But I'm not even remotely convinced he's going to be a bad NHL coach simply because it's a "possibility" or because they've had a rough start. That's absurd at this point in time.


We don't know anything yet. Nothing. Not a thing. We probably won't even know anything by the end of the season. This thread is pure silliness.

Basically, y'all are saying the Wings are fine. Blashill is doing good. Things look promising.


I'm sick of hearing how young we are.

I'm sick of hearing how old we are.

It doesn't make any goddam sense.


Most of the injured players weren't even on the team last year. And most of y'all hate Quincey, so who cares? Blashill needs to light a spark.


Fine, don't fire him. Just waste away the last years of Zetterberg and Datsyuk with the Red Wings Ausmus. 


No, what people are saying is just have some patience as we are not even 10 games into the season. To fire a first time head coach who has had success at every level because he is 4-4-1 to start the year 9 games into an 82 games season would be a stupid and impulsive, and anyone who thinks differently is basing their opinion on emotion not logic. Nobody is happy with the start, but you need to give it time. Blashill could bomb, its definitely possible, he also could struggle for a month and then take the team to first place, the likely scenario is probably somewhere in the middle. Bottom line is you need a larger sample size to see what he can truly do.


Comparing him to Ausmus is a ridiculous comparison. Ausmus has coached the Tigers for 327 games, Blashill has coached the Wings for 9.

Is this real life?!

Nope it's some sort of silly Halloween prank. At the intermission we will find out they dressed up as different team and Detroit is losing 4-0 really

I am dreading the commercials that will run before the final game at the Joe. The last season the Tigers were at the Stadium, they ran these great nostalgic tv spots that would turn me into a blubbering mess every time I saw them. This is going to be FAR worse.

Meh.  The Joe is a dump.  I disagree about there not being a bad seat in the house.  I don't really associate the good memories of the Stanley Cup winning teams with the building itself.  It's not like the Joe was Olympia or anything. 

You think there is a bad seat? I'll bet you a pair of tickets you won't find one seat with an obstructed view, no poles or signs blocking your view of the ice from the nose bleeds to the front row in any section.

Calm down there newf buddy, I didn't praise Dekeyser either. Smith had a few turnovers that were caused by overthinking it, and a couple of plays at the point where he could've put it on net but paused for a second and it was going the other way. I know his reputation your talking about, but that's not me. I like the guy, already said in the GDT I believe he can turn out like Ericsson in the long run, just for now he's a big of a work in progress.

Probably came across as more condescending than I meant to but honestly there is no reason to even bring up his play as bad last night. He created offensive chances and made no real defensive mistakes. The goal he was on the ice for he played it perfectly against a pretty good player and Quincey messed up royally. I've actually seen some people say he was one of the wings better players last night and even had him as a star (I think he was solid but not top 3) the only reason people would be saying anythnig bad about his play is because hes getting the Ericcson treatment where everyone hates on him and watches for one little thing he does wrong. Smith played like a second pair dman last night

Does Pierre have a hard on for Toews?  What was the purpose of asking his last question to Z about Towes?  :rolleyes:

NBC has a quota on the minimum number of Toews comments that have to be made during a broadcast.

Was listenning to the Team 1040 Vancouver tonite on my way to Dairy Queen after the game.(Burrp-excuse me)   When they asked which series they would all prefer to watch in Round 2, one of the guys said it wasn't so much as which series, rather which players.


"When it comes to playoff hockey, I have a man crush on Zetterberg and Datsyuk.  No one I'd rather watch than those two."

Cmon guys, this isn't the time or place for a religious arguement.

Agreed completely. It's a shame some people have to flaunt it so arrogantly.

Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord;
even so saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labors.

O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of thy
servant, and grant an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship
of thy saints; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth
with thee and the Holy Spirit, on God, now and for ever. Amen.

And here I thought we could get through this without some pretentious religious crap. <_< I'm sure Rusty's 3 1/2 month old son feels really blessed that god killed his dad.
