What Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman said about coach search, state of rebuild
Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman talked to the media on Monday, just two days after announcing the firing of head coach Jeff Blashill.
The Red Wings missed the playoffs again this year, and struggled to win games -- and hold teams to fewer than five goals -- in the final stretch of the season. It was the conclusion of the third year under Yzerman as GM.
“Jeff Blashill is a good hockey coach. He ran a really good program,” Yzerman said in a press conference on Monday afternoon. “I can certainly attest to what has been our program for the last three years because it’s been dictated by me. You cannot judge Jeff Blashill on the Detroit Red Wings’ record.”
