Coach Poll - Who do you think will replace Bylsma?

Postby Hugo Stiglitz on Fri May 16, 2014 11:05 am

Lots of speculation will go on and likely hinge on who the new GM is, but who do you guys think will be the next coach? I don't mean who you WANT, but who you THINK.

I was hoping Trotz, but with Shero gone as well I think that lowers the chance we hire him.

I should have added JM, but forgot.

My biggest concern is if they hire Martin or Hynes. This team is badly in need a fresh perspective.

I think Trotz is most likely of anyone, but I guess I should have clicked "other", because "The field" is more likely

I doubt either of those two get the Crosby seal-of-approval.

quite frankly I don't think that should be the biggest concern. I am NOT saying it won't be, but the days of players deciding how the team is coached and who they play For should come to an end. You get paid an absurd amount of money to get out there and do what you're told and perform.

I voted other. I think babcock is a pipe dream. I think they'll go outside, so Hynes is out. And Trotz's chances fall with Shero gone.

Jacques Martin. I imagine he will coach until they make a play for Babcock, then Martin will move to the front office.

They'll either get Babcock this year or not at all. If Babcock wants to leave DET (Pittsburgh is only 4 hours away from Detroit, where his family is), then the parties will work it out.

I firmly believe that Bylsma will not be retained. Nothing in L & B's comments suggest it to me.

But I have a hypothetical question for everyone: Suppose DB does stay, the new GM brings in the players for DB's system, and it's brilliant (OK, that's an extreme adjective)? Suppose we win it all next year? Could anyone live with that outcome?

I could, because isn't that the end-game? To match system and personnel in order to win it all? So the starting point comes from the GM side and not the coach side.

My head feels like it's taken too many hits by Marc Staal's stick.

Guess that was a little premature.

I don't know about anyone else but my frustration with this club is mounting. I think if Bylsma really stays this team is just not in touch with what is necessary to be successful.
