Potential training prospects for the Red Wings
Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News: The Detroit Red Wings, Philadelphia Flyers and Winnipeg might be amongst the groups thinking about just recently fired Barry Trotz. Trotz is from Manitoba and has actually been long reported to the Jets.
TSNs Darren Dreger questions if Trotz might be thinking about a management position rather of training.
If not Trotz, would the Red Wings be intrigued in his previous assistant coach, and previous colleague of Steve Yzerman, Lane Lambert? Lambert is under agreement for another year with the Islanders and would be a head training prospect for them too.
Coaches who may interest Yzerman consist of Trotz, Lambert, Benoit Groulx, Derek Lalonde, Rikard Gronborg, Roger Ronnberg, Mike Babcock, John Tortorella, Rick Tocchet and Alain Vigneault.
Is Allvin desiring his own man behind the bench?
Sekeras and Price: Rick Dhaliwal recently on if Vancouver Canucks GM Patrik Allvin is desiring his own man behind the bench.
“That’s the sense I’m getting. The individuals that I speak to, and appearance, are we truly, truly shocked? New reigm can be found in. But the entire thing was going to get to this point since the owner employed the coach initially. Then he generated the president and GM.
Last time I inspected, many GMs when they get a brand-new task in any city, anywhere, they most likely, probably desire their own man. And if Allvin does desire his own man, he’s not the very first man in the history of hockey to get a GM task and desire his own man. That’s not a huge story. He desires his own man.
But, don’t you believe the owner put them in this position by working with the coach initially? And that’s where a great deal of the issues, which’s why we are where we are today is since the coach was employed prior to the GM.”
