from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,

Detroit Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman is promising to leave no stone unturned in his search for the next coach of the team. They will be taking all qualified applicants under consideration.

Evidently, they are preparing to span the globe in pursuit of the next bench boss. Red Wings vice-president of hockey operations Nicklas Lidstrom offered indications that European coaches will be in the mix for the position.

Swedish coaches Rikard Grönborg of Swiss club Zurirch and Roger Rönnberg of Frölunda have been mentioned in speculation regarding the Detroit job. Canadian Cam Abbott, who coaches Rögle in Sweden, is another who has been connected to Red Wings coaching rumors.

“We will try to find the coach who is best suited for the Red Wings’ development going forward and who can help us get better,” Lidstrom explained to Swedish media site Aftonbladet.se. “Then we will see where that coach comes from.”...

“The process has not really started for us yet with candidates for a new coach for Red Wings,” Lidstrom said. “I do not really have any comments about the name of the coach yet. There will of course be a lot of speculation on possible candidates.”

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.
