    So what exactly needs to happen before we fire this joke? Do we need to lose 15 regulation games in a row? Fans have already stopped attending our home games (arena's only about half full even on weekends). Seriously, this guy hasn't got a clue how to coach this squad.

    I have no interest in following this thread, I just wanted to point out that fans haven’t been attending home games for a few years now.

    Aren’t happy with losing? This is what rebuilding teams do. Remember all the complaining about losing in the first round every year? This is what everyone wanted.

    I was perfectly content with making the playoffs. We just got bad matchups (Boston, Tampa Bay x2, and Nashville) those teams were far to heavy and gritty and Howard just could never clutchup when it mattered most. What we're witnessing now is just brutal for the young players. We've established a losing culture and its only going to continue to (somehow) get even worse the longer we keep Blashill as a coach.

    Well you better settle in. This team is probably five years away from being a consistent playoff threat.

    We've developed a losing culture because our good players got old and we didn't have the prospects to make up for them. Now we are accumulating prospects and not throwing them to the wolves so we have 2.5 lines of pure unadulterated crap. We still have Nielsen, Abby, Flip, and Helm under contract next year as well. Be ready to complain even more.

    So nobody wants a new coach then? Let's just keep losing every single game with zero change?

    I’m completely content with losing for the next 2-3 years and then being kind of mediocre for another year or two before beginning to be a legit playoff threat again. It’s a rebuild. We are supposed to suck.

    This team doesn’t have a coaching problem. It has a talent problem and no depth. Lottery picks for the next few years, followed by some upper mid round picks are welcomed for the next 5 years.

    He should have been fired 2 years ago this is overdue for sure. Yah the roster isn't great but he surely isn't getting enough out of it.

    Could you please break down why Blashil is a worse coach than most NHL coaches? What should Blashil do to turn this pile of feces into a playoff team? Any specific lines or schemes?

    I'm not going to sit here and say that Blashill is some amazing coach, but I dont think he is the reason why we are struggling. We are pretty much a one line team, if the opposition shuts down our first line we are going to loose more often then not. I don't think it matters who our coach is, this is going to happen. All I want to see right now out of Blashill is the continued development of our young players. Once we have a playoff level roster, then wins and losses will be how I evaluate him.

    It's the content we deserve, but it's not the content we need.

    I'm super confused as to why everyone thinks Bylsma will be the coach past this season if Blashill is canned... unless people don't actually think that, in which case it probably shouldn't be made a talking point.

    Also just so everyone here knows nhlisawesome is a noted troll who was banned from the red wings subreddit. nhlisawesome (u/nhlisawesome) - Reddit
    Just constant negativity and provocation from this guy, don't bother.

    Yeah I dont think Blash is the main issue, nobody would win with our roster.

    It's not the coach, were you happy making the playoffs year after year just to get "demolished" in the first round? Time to pay the price.

    Imo it's all the equipment manager's fault. Fire him, make the playoffs.

    I don't care what anybody says, this is not a real thing. Go tell Edmonton and Buffalo all about their losing cultures. Turns out teams with a "losing culture" magically lose it the second their rosters get talented enough. Funny how that works.

    Personally, I think it's because Bylsma would most likely take the reins if Blashill is fired. If you don't think Bylsma will be an upgrade, there is no point in firing Blashill right now unless anyone expects the Wings to go outside of the organization. That's what's being suggested with all of the fire blashill talk, that he be canned now.

    Unless the Wings believe he has lost the room or don't like what he's doing with the prospects, I don't see any real reason for them to can him mid-season.
