Coach Talk

Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic with some talk on available coaches.

Barry Trotz- It’s been well publicized that he met with Winnipeg GM Kevin Cheveldayoff already. The Jets have put on the full-court press to bring the Manitoba native home.

I believe he’s also spoken to varying degrees with Philadelphia, Vegas and Detroit.

Travis Green- I feel like Dallas, Detroit or Vegas would be good spots for Green. What would appeal to me as an owner or GM of those teams is that experience in a crazy Canadian market like Vancouver has Green pretty much able to handle any kind of location now.

LeBrun also mentioned...

Jeff Blashill- “I would say unequivocally I’m a better coach today than I was seven years ago just because of the experience that I was able to gain through lots of different circumstances in Detroit,” Blashill told The Athletic this week. “I think when you go through the types of years that we went through, you either grow and, if you choose to, you can grow a lot.

“And I certainly felt like, and I feel today, that I gained a lot of knowledge through those experiences. So, I’m excited to see what the future holds, excited to see what opportunities are available. I love coaching. I love having an impact on teams, an impact on players. Just look forward to whatever the next opportunity is.”

I believe a few teams have put Blashill on their radar, perhaps not top of list, but I think he’s going to hear from some of them.

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.
