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.
