Blashill not going anywhere just yet

DETROIT >> Wings general manager Ken Holland won’t grant NHL teams permission yet to talk to Grand Rapids coach Jeff Blashill.

“I don’t really want to be a development team for other teams,” Holland said. “We’ve got to get this team going.”

Holland said he may change his stance in June.

Blashill has one year left on his deal with the Griffins.

“I believe Blash is an NHL coach in the making,” Holland said. “Is he ready today? He’s coached in the AHL for two years and he had one year in the (NHL) with (Mike Babcock).”
