Detroit Could Be A Destination For Bruce Cassidy

06/09/2022 at 9:30am EDT

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

The Winged Wheels finally ditched Jeff Blashill at the end of another bust season. Cassidy could be among GM Steve Yzerman’s top choices to try to reinvigorate the sagging Original Six franchise.

Keep in mind, it was Chiarelli long ago, in his days as an agent, who represented Yzerman in contract talks. As noted above, it was Chiarelli who hired Cassidy for Providence. All three are from Ottawa.

Any coach would want the Wings job after the stellar rookie performances of Lucas Raymond and Moritz Seider.

Yzerman still has a lot of roster reconstruction ahead, perhaps most importantly in net, but Cassidy would have the two kids, with Raymond on the wing and Seider on defense, to begin the renaissance.

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.
