Coaching Grades

Ansar Khan of Mlive gives out his end of season grades and included the coaching staff too.

Jeff Blashill and coaching staff: C+

Several young players took significant strides, including Dylan Larkin, Andreas Athanasiou and Tyler Bertuzzi, and that growth mainly is what earned Blashill a two-year extension. But special teams continue to lag (19th on the power play, 28th on the penalty kill). Ultimately, you are what your record says you are, and the team improved by only one point.

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.
