    If Blashill get's fired today, then he better bring back Babcock and Bill Peters.... unless Yzerman thinks he can coach ad GM at the same time.

    Maybe bring back Ken Holland ti GM and promote Yzerman to coach...

    Interim? I'd be fine with Bylsma.



    John Cooper is the obvious choice if available however if not I'm hoping Bruce Boudreau gets let go by Minni. He may not be able to win in the playoffs, but he does very well in developing young players.

    It's been done, 2104 Devils had Oates and Stevens as co-head coach, after DeBoer was fired midseason.

    I posted part of this in another thread, but its probably more appropriate here.

    In the NHL, can a team hire an assistant coach of another team (like in the NFL how you can take a coordinator from another team and make them your head coach? ) If so, I wonder if Yzerman would consider Todd Nelson?

    Don't think so.

    Hynes had expectations. They got Subban for quite cheap, got Simmonds, good trde for Gusev, got Hughes. Hall as pending UFA, so success would have been critical to extend him.

    But he got NO RESULTS after EXPECTATIONS.

    Blashill head is on the table after Yzerman goes to UFA market, will sign a guy like Torey Krug, brings in new goaltender, wins the lottery (Lafreniere or Byfield, instant helpers) and adds forward depth.

    So after that kind of summer Blashill would have EXPECTATIONS too, and then if we have poor results again, it's time to fire the coach.

    Bylsma in responsible of the PP and forward lines.

    So if there's Zadina on the wrong line and with less icetime, it's him who to blaim. Not Blashill.

    Penalty kill and defence is on Houda.

    Yes, they can, but not during a season.

    But definitely during an existing contract. You can hire, when it's for a promotional position. You can't hire assistant to be your assistant, or head to be head.

    But from Assistant --> Head.

    Uh, I didn't say that I wanted him I said I can't remember what that whole thing was about. Since all the coaches are now abusers, half expect him to resurface.

    To me it doesn't really matter who's behind the wheel.

    Didn't he sleep with Hasek's wife???? (boy do I miss the 90s rumor mills...)
    He has been ok in suprts, but there is probably a reason he can't hold down a job.

    Babcock and Peters is better than Blashill and Bylasma. Looking at the options out there, I'd take the controversial approach.

    Because they are best available and would otherwise never consider coming to Detroit. They would now they are desperate and would probably take anything they can get to start rebuilding their rep. Win for Detroit. Because lets face it, no respectable coach is coming here.

    Aside from them, there's nobody available I would take over Blashill.

    If one of come available, I say jump - otherwise consider Babcock or keep what we have:

    Trotz
    Quinville
    Tippet
    Tortorella

    Clearly Yzerman is happy with Blashill, so I don't see him getting canned anytime soon.

    Actually I love the idea of him being an assistant coach overseeing the forwards and the power play. That's if he wants to do it and is good at communicating and connecting with players. Intelligent minds like his sometimes have trouble communicating their vision. It's just too bad that as of today, he wouldn't have much to work with, skill-wise.

    I am not risking the locker room by bringing in a headcase just because they may make a lousy team a little less lousy. You are taking five steps back in order to take a step forward.

    I'm sure one of Tortorella, Gallant or (maybe we can go as low as) Julien will get fired in the next few years.

    Keep Blashill until a real coach becomes available.

    That said, I would love Yzerman to stir the pot and take both Babcock and Peters... if for nothing else, just for the controversy of it! :D

    And make Kid Rock the new equipment's manager.

    Guy Boucher isn't a bad choice to me. He can develop and get guys to play. Has experience with Yzerman in TB. Brought Ottawa to the eastern finals. Idk. IF they fired Blashill today this is who I'd want as an interim with the chance to keep the job permenatly.

    I expect Yzerman to roll with Blashill till the season is over but there isn't a reason to bring him back the following season. They'll also be a bigger spectrum of candidates to choose from.

    Yzerman isn't going to can Blashill to bring in a new full time replacement during the season - that candidate pool is so limited with NHL assistants, College and CHL coaches under contract and in the middle of their seasons.

    What I do expect is the next coach will get a 4-5 year contract. Yzerman will want to empower his choice and make it known to the lockerroom who is running it. Could be a way to get the top choice candidate here as well given there could be 7-8 teams looking for replacements come the off-season.
