    I'd make that move in a second.I doubt he'll still be unemployed by the end of the season though.

    Q is one of only a handful of coaches that I think is good enough to justify firing Blashill for mid-season.

    But the bigger question is whether he's the right fit for the roster Detroit is building.

    Maybe Joel wouldn't want to come here, or maybe now he decides he wants to take the rest of the year off altogether, and start fresh this summer. But I would ABSOLUTELY have a conversation with the man, and see if everybody would be on the same page.

    Interesting to see Chicago getting desperate, though. Hopefully the Wings can leverage that into a favorable trade.

    Going after Q right now makes no sense.

    I expect him to wait till the offseason to look for another job.

    If he likes the idea of working with Stevie, and he thinks it's a real possibility, he might come.

    Course no one can tell him anything about that because that's tampering, but hey. Everyone else is assuming it's gonna happen. Why not Q?

    No point to bring him in now. This team can’t make any moves that could lead to more wins.

    Chicago's start hasn't been THAT horrible so I'm a little surprised at the timing. Guess he was really close to getting sacked last season.

    Would definitely hire.

    Hawks fans have roasted him badly for his usage of youth. This would be a major knee-jerk reaction to bring him in.

    He should go back to St Louis.

    I think bringing him IN would be a move the team could make that leads to more wins.
    The Wings are not making the playoffs this year but with a coach of Q's talent, another homerun draft or two we could see a very accelerated rebuild.

    Now with that said, i dont think he'd be interested in going to a rebuilding team.

    Most of my friends are Blues fans since I live in STL. A couple of them are acting like he is already here again. Lol

    Debrincat and that young defenseman are having great seasons. I would dump Blashill right now and hire Q.

    He does live in Windsor. Yzerman/Quennville is a Red Wings fans dream

    Its time for Stevie Y to return and for Joey Quennville to come home.

    Technically Blashill is really at home. Q is from Windsor not Detroit.

    If there is a gentleman's agreement between Holland and Yzerman for Yzerman to take over the team, it should be Yzerman's decision going forward.

    You need to address the GM situation first. Uncertainty at the top impacts your ability to hire coaches. Deep down, however, we all know that Q could and will land a much better job than Detroit.

    He could spend the year as a consultant/scout/development coach and just really immerse himself into our organization before officially taking the coaching job in the summer. That kind of sounds like the best case scenario to be honest.

    It would functionally make Blashill and Shero lame ducks and I'm not really sure what kind of impact that would have on the team but that's a different discussion. Point is, there are ways to bring him in without having him inflate our win totals.

    That's a good way to piss off your entire current coaching staff. The Red Wings are not an organization to do something like that and I doubt Q would agree to such a role in the first place.

    If he wants the Red Wings job he can wait until the summer.
