Could Mike Babcock return to Hockeytown to be the next head coach of the Detroit Red Wings?

It’s official, Jeff Blashill will not be the head coach of the Red Wings for the 2022-23 NHL season and GM Steve Yzerman has been charged with the task of finding the person who will lead this team into the future.

Ever since the news broke that Blashill would not be back on the bench next season, there has been plenty of speculation about who Yzerman will consider as a replacement.

Buried in an article recently published by The Detroit News, Ted Kulfan suggested a long list of potential candidates to replace Blashill.

From Detroit News:

Among the long list of names that could interest Yzerman (along with Trotz and Lambert), are Benoit Groulx (Yzerman’s minor-league coach when both were in Tampa), Derek Lalonde (current Tampa assistant), Swedish coaches Rikard Gronborg or Roger Ronnberg, and former NHL head coaches Mike Babcock, John Tortorella, Rick Tocchet and Alain Vigneault.

Yzerman said during his end of season press conference he’d like to have a coach in place near the Stanley Cup Finals in mid- to late June.

Nation, would you like to see the Red Wings bring back Mike Babcock? Do you think Yzerman would consider his former head coach?
