This is the best blueline Blashill's had in Detroit


When Jeff Blashill took over the Red Wings in 2015-16, he had to like what he had on the blueline. Niklas Kronwall was still a stalwart. Jonathan Ericsson was still healthy. Danny DeKeyser was coming off a breakout season, Mike Green was coming over from the Capitals and Brendan Smith was coming into his own, or so it appeared. That was the last time the Wings made the playoffs. Blashill likes this year's blueline more.

"We have the most depth on D that we’ve had probably since I’ve been here," Blashill said Monday. "That, to me, is for sure."
