    Yzerman pointed out that this fan base needed patience. I'm sure he would love to move players like Nielsen, Abdelkater, Helm, Ericsson, Dailey, and some others off the Wings roster, but he can not right now. He would have to find a taker out there and right now no one is interested in any of them. Putting players on waivers is not the answer as you would great a much bigger problem in GR to where you are already sitting out a vet per game right now. He had to guts (not Holland) to place Ericssson on waivers but no one wanted him and he is playing in GR at the moment. I'm sure more moves will be made this season and beyond.

    If you get rid of Blashill right now (you still have to pay him for next season), everyone here figures that Dan Bylsma would be the interim coach to finish up the season. But when 2020-21 comes around, who would you put in as the Wings coach? Do you go after a hot college/junior coach? Do you go after a up and coming AHL coach? or do you give someone like Todd Nelson (has) or Ben Simon (currently) coached in GR the chance? Who would want to come to Detroit and coach the Wings in the state that they are in right now?

    You don't have to pay him for next year.

    How does replacing him mid season do anything other than create more confusion by switching systems without any time to adjust to them? At least with waiting till the end of the year you have the off season to work on what the new coach wants to run.

    I don't think anyone can make any argument that the Wings seem to be buying whatever system Blashill is selling.

    I believe so, but the talent in appropriate position's is lacking to run it. But a switch adds to the confusion like say Edmonton had that prolonged there cellar dwellar era because they were switching coaches like every other year and their was no time for the player's to accustom to anything.

    Gee, I don't know, ask St. Louis if you want a reasonable answer. This team isn't St. Louis of last year, but the system Blashill is running, IS. NOT. WORKING. So, I ask...Why not a new coach? If many, and there are many that reiterate on a daily that Blashills coaching tactics have regressed certain players. So, if you are comfortable with another 60+ games of our youth playing in a system they clearly don't excel in, cool, but its time to stop feeding JB the Koolaid.

    If the majority of posters want Blashill gone right now, start naming some specific names that you would want to coach the Wings and the likely hood of that person actually ends up coaching the Wings. And do not say "Anybody but Blashill" as your answer. Just curious to know. It is so easy to get rid of a coach, but if you do, you have to replace that coach with a new coach. Plus you have to factor in of what the current Wings roster that we have right now and the prospects here in GR and elsewhere, who would your person be that would find the Wings coaching position attractive enough for that person to want to coach this team?

    Marc Crawford and we keep Disco as assistant coach. Then we have 2 coaches that we already hated to begin with, just need to find another assistant.

    Just give one of the assistants the job and let them run with it for the rest of the year. If it works, great. If not, we had nothing to lose and we can hunt for a coach over the offseason.

    Is it still not acceptable to let Blashill go after the last two games?

    It's always been acceptable to fire Blashill, but do it for the right reasons. This team is going to be lousy regardless of who is behind the bench because the roster is bad. They might get a bounce from a new coach, most teams do, but the problem is still going to be the Wings icing a really bad product. Firing Blashill for the team being bad is just passing the buck from the people who put the team together.

    I won't cry if they fire him this week, but you are absolutely right that water will eventually find its level. You can only outperform your collective talent for so long before it starts to catch up with you. Until the talent issues are corrected (which will take multiple seasons) the fortunes of this team are not going to change in any material respect. At the end of the day we have only two forwards who are guaranteed to play in the top six on every other team in the league and only one defensemen who could actually play for every other team in the league. When we were last genuinely competitive we had three of the top 40 players in the league. We are a very long way from our competitive peak.

    Rebuilding teams are always a turnstile for coaches though. We should probably expect to plow through at least two other coaches after Blash before we really start to get competitive again. Kicking the coaching can is much easier than actually building a championship roster.

    I don't know, at least it would be entertaining to see the reactions to it.
