Craig Berube holding up the Stanley Cup while coaching the St. Louis Blues
Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman may be targeting Craig Berube as a coaching replacement.

The hot seat is starting to warm up in Detroit. NHL trade rumors indicate that General Manager Steve Yzerman is seriously considering making a coaching change this offseason.

The Red Wings’ disappointing late-season collapse has rumors swirling, and the name at the top of their wishlist is a familiar one: Craig Berube.

Could Craig Berube Bring Stanley Cup Magic Back to Detroit?

Berube, famous for guiding the St. Louis Blues to an unlikely Stanley Cup win in 2019, would bring valuable experience and a proven track record to Detroit. Current head coach Derek Lalonde, in the second year of his contract, maybe the casualty if the Red Wings fail to secure a playoff berth.

Yzerman has a reputation for patience, but Detroit’s lackluster play down the stretch could force his hand. The Red Wings will need to find a new gear down the season’s final stretch if they want to secure their place in the postseason – and potentially save Lalonde’s job.
