Don’t look now but the Detroit Red Wings are actually playing pretty good hockey as of late.
Following Thursday night’s 4-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, the Red Wings are now 5-3-2 in their last 10 games and they have looked more like a fringe playoff team than a bottom feeder.
Head coach Jeff Blashill spoke to the media after the win and what he said as us wondering. Should Steve Yzerman keep Blashill around for the 2021-22 season or is it time to move on?
“What I like is we’re a better hockey team today than we were at the beginning of the year and a big impact on that is a number of our young players,” Blashill said.

Nation, do you agree with Blashill? Are the Red Wings a better hockey team today than they were at the beginning of the season? If so, is this a sign that the Red Wings should keep him around?
