Morning Line On Jeff Blashill

06/10/2022 at 8:40am EDT

I was pleasantly surprised when Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff reported that Blashill interviewed with the Flyers. He coached the Red Wings for seven seasons, missing the playoffs six straight times. His last couple of seasons it felt like he was keeping the seat warm for the next guy as they rebuilt. But he kept Detroit competitive and did solid work in player development.

I think Blashill is a good coach whose ascension to the big job came at the wrong part of the franchise's timeline. He's a classic "second gig" guy, and I bet he thrives in the next stop.

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.
