Fox 17, Wallner: Jeff Blashill’s busy coaching the Griffins

While the hockey world waits for Mike Babcock's decision-making, Grand Rapids Griffins coach Jeff Blashill spoke with Fox 17's Mitch Fick...

And the Grand Rapids Press's Peter J. Wallner about his situation:

Blashill also said, "I don't expect to hear anything" today as the organization waited to learn what current coach Mike Babcock would decide. He said he would make a decision Wednesday. Most reports had him deciding between Detroit, Buffalo and possibly Toronto.

Blashill also said he has not spoken with Babcock, which is unusual. They usually talk regularly, he said.

"I stayed away from talking to Mike," he said. "I usually talk to Mike on a pretty regular basis but I know he's real busy trying to work through his professional and personal situation."

Ansar Khan On Babcock

Ansar Khan of Mlive was just on TSN radio in Toronto...

Khan says Buffalo is his guess for Babock.  When the offer is that much more than Detroit's, it is too good to pass up.

Money is a huge factor, a wild amount people did not expect.

The Sabres have some young talent, an aggressive owner who is willing to spend.

Khan was asked if Ilitch would bump the offer of $3.25M for 4 years, he says no, not getting into a bidding war.  Wings want him back but know they are comfortable with Blashill if Babcock does leave.

Khan says no question Blashill will be the next coach but no announcement until the Griffins complete their playoff run. It is an ideal fit.
