NHL: Detroit Red Wings at Arizona Coyotes Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

In Red Wings Land

Is Detroit Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill in trouble? Let’s examine - Freep

My sense is management/ownership is not looking to fire Blashill. They recognize the Wings lack talent, that the team is paying for all those years of making the playoffs and thus not drafting a high-end player (when the Wings selected Michael Rasmussen at ninth overall in 2017, he was their first top-10 pick since 1991). They don’t have an elite defenseman, and they don’t have a superstar forward. Their best player, Dylan Larkin, just turned 22.

I love the almost-taunting sound of the “let’s examine” in the title
