Chris Ilitch On Jeff Blashill

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

"I think Steve Yzerman addressed that a few days ago,” Ilitch said while speaking with reporters at the Tigers’ spring training facility. “He talked and he indicated he felt that Jeff has done a good job this season. And I concur. I mean, you look at the Red Wings, our players have battled really hard under Jeff’s leadership and it’s been during a very trying rebuild season for the Red Wings. So I agree with Steve: Jeff’s done a good job with what he’s been given."

“I think Steve had indicated that Jeff and Steve are going to talk after the season’s over and they’ll talk about the future and we’ll see where it goes. But at the end of the day, that’s Steve’s call. I support it, but I agree with Steve. I think Jeff's done a good job in the situation he’s been given.”

About Abel to Yzerman

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.
