Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Grand Rapids Griffins general manager / Detroit Red Wings assistant general manager Shawn Horcoff announced on Sunday that the Red Wings will not renew the contracts of Griffins head coach Ben Simon, assistant coaches Matt Macdonald and Todd Krygier, and goaltending development coach Brian Mahoney-Wilson.
Simon just completed his fifth season as the Griffins’ head coach and has spent the last eight campaigns on the team’s coaching staff. Mahoney-Wilson, Macdonald and Krygier have served in their positions for the last seven, five and four seasons, respectively.
This is not a surprise. I commented on this the other day. The last few seasons have been lackluster. I thought it would of happened after last season but felt it in my bones it was happening this time around.
I didn't know Mike Knuble was in the organization, that's cool.
They should bring Todd Nelson back.
