    Toledo Walleye Affiliation?

    I noticed that there is going to be a new East Coast Hockey League franchise in Toledo (Some of you might remember the old Toledo Storm from a few years ago) and I wondered if anybody has heard of a possible affiliation with the Red Wings or Griffins. The Storm used to be a "AA" affiliate of the Wings and also supplied G.R. with players to fill in in the event of injuries or call- ups. Are the Walleye going to be the wings "AA" affiliate like the Storm were? It seems like a good idea, with Thomas McCollum, Johan Ryno, Dick Axelsson likely to play with Grand Rapids next season and Abdelkader coming back too, Jordan Pearce will not be with the Griffins. G.R. could have used an affiliation last year for guys like Brett Petterson, Randall Gelech, and P.J. Atherton.
  2. The Detroit Free Press posted This article. I'm not to surpirised by the names that he singled out. It's also encouraging to hear that nobody played poorly. Also glad to hear that McCollum is playing well, I hope his transaction from juniors to pro goes as smoothly as possible, and as far as Lashoff and Raedeke; I wonder if they are going to play for the Griffins next year or go to Toledo. Any thoughts?

    Zherdev mentions Detroit as an option

    I wouldn't mind him coming to Detroit, but realistically, I just don't see it getting done. Him and Dats would be freaking sweet.

    Landon Wilson

    Wilson vs. Penner Not only that but he has a history of concussions. As far as Kolanos, I've heard that he's got some attitude problems. If I recall, he was signed by the Wings a few years back and he didn't crack the roster so they sent him to G.R. and after a week or so he got pissed because he thought that he signed to play for Detroit not the Griffs so he went and played the rest of the season in Switzerland. Either way I doubt he would come back to Detroit after that. If I remember right I think he had a concussion while he played for the Coyotes too and that kind of stalled his career.

    Bettman's Salary.....

    Worthless piece of sh*t.

    Chicago Signs Mark Cullen

    Didn't he play for the Griffins in 07- 08?

    The "Who Will You Miss Most Next Year" Poll

    Hossa is obviously the biggest name that we lost, but we are going to all end up missing Conklin the most. After Howard plays a few games you'll know what I mean. I'll miss Downey too.

    Who will man the right point on the second PP unit

    It's probably going to be Stuart. He'll probably get a chance as well as Ericsson to play on the 2nd PP Unit. By the way- Malbty isn't going to see a lick of time next year on the Power Play.

    Canadiens sign Moen to 3-year deal

    Don't give up just yet. Maybe Holland will pick him up at the deadline.

    Jason Williams?

    No.

    Chi is SOOO Screwed

    Tallon either has some kind of trick up his sleeve or he's just to blind and stupid to realize what position he's put the team in. It's probably the latter.

    Detroit signs D Doug Janik

    Sh*t! I looked through the first 3 pages! Musta missed it

    Detroit signs D Doug Janik

    Link Looks like another depth signing by Detroit. Nothing to get to excited about here.

    Prospects Camp

    Beats me. All I know is that last year he was #53 at the Prospects Tournament (the one before training camp) and in the main camp.

    Holland confirms that Hudler will play in KHL

    Didn't see this coming. Edit: That's way to much money for a player of Hudler's caliber.

    Prospects Camp

    Could #53 be Dick Axelsson?
  17. Makes sense, Detroit's not going to score as many goals without Hossa (and probably Hudler too) so they're going to have to give up less goals too. No surprise here. LOL

    Pronger Signs Extension with Philly

    Haha, Cindy is going to be messing his pants every time Philly plays Pitt.

    Jeremy Williams & Kris Newberry sign with Wings / GR?

    I like this signing by Holland. It's a good solid signing by the Wings that should provide some depth to the organization that they lost. Good work Kenny.
  20. Looks like he won't be coming back. Link

    2009 Detroit Tigers Season Thread

    Well, for some reason Detroit has always had a tough time playing at Minnesota. Let's hope for some better results against the Royals.

    Jakub Kindl

    Yeah, it's not working for me either, (I was going to post a link to his bio) I got a 'Server Not Found' message.

    Ville Leino signs a 2 year extension

    Ahhhmen.

    Jakub Kindl

    I've made to a few Griffins games the past few years and he is either invisible or the best D- man on the ice. Consistency is probably something that has kept him from cracking the Detroit lineup. He's also known to struggle with turnovers which likely isn't helping either. Kindl's AHL Stats aren't spectacular, and his plus/minus isn't pretty (in 07- 08 it was -34, which is most likely related to the turnovers).

    No one left on the free agent crop really wows me

    If Hudler can't get re- signed then Holland will go out and get somebody (who it would be, I have no idea). On the other hand if Hudler comes back next season then Kenny will probably just let all the kids from G.R. fight it out and battle for roster spots in training camp.
