Winning Culture Still Exists In Detroit

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Blashill was also adamant that the winning culture the Wings’ organization has cultivated over the last three decades is still there, and isn't disintegrating, despite missing the playoffs three consecutive seasons and a current slump that includes 11 losses in the last 12 games.

“Part of that is on the coaching staff and our leadership to make sure that doesn’t happen,” Blashill said about maintaining the winning culture. “Dylan Larkin was the best player in practice today. That’s what great leaders do, they go out and when it’s bleak and doesn’t look good, they go out and lead the way. He was excellent, and that’s the work ethic and commitment it’s going to take not to lose the culture, and that’s important to everybody in this room, to (general manager) Steve Yzerman, and important to everybody in the organization.”

Blashill’s future with the Wings is becoming a hot topic as the Wings have sunk to the bottom of the NHL standings with nine points.

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.
