  1. I think it's important for Mantha to get more top minutes in the AHL because he really hasn't been a dominant/high impact guy since he was in the QMHL. He had a tough first year pro with the broken leg, then he was pretty good last year, but we need him to be an elite scorer here, so let him get to that point in the AHL first. I hope he keeps ripping it up, gets his confidence up and then come up with guns blazing.
  2. So, Helm is our leading scorer and Larkin is our enforcer. Weird year so far.
  3. Nike!!!
  4. Got to take advantage of 15 guys on their bench
  5. Won it too.
  6. Haha. Larkin
  7. A local steak chef is a Wings fan.
  8. Agreed, but Howard's going to play some games this year. Might as well take a hot streak. Backup goalies do play more than one game in a row. Edit: Actually, scratch that. Early in the season you don't want to shake Mrazek and he's been great as well. Also, our success this season depends on Mrazek being lights out.
  9. Z back as center Larkin on the wing might be a good thing to get them going, but I hope they switch back at some point in the season. AA should be in over Ott or Miller. Kind of surprised that Howard didn't get another game after his great performance. Edit: Didn't notice Sproul in there. Good to see him get in there, but Marchenko should be the one out. XO been solid from what I've seen Also, Sproul and Smith looks like a really bad combo to me. They're both risky offensive guys. should be: Smith-Marchenko Ericsson-Sproul
  10. Pavalec was demoted by the Jets and is playing in the AHL so I'm sure the Jets wouldn't mind moving him.
  11. Didn't watch the game, but just watched the highlights and the 2 big breakaways were both clearly Smith's fault. He's been good so far this season, but he seems to still have these huge mistakes.
  12. Looks like Abby's having a disagreement with the ref
  13. There's a bunch of players in the league with names that sound like they're the bargain bin knockoff version. When I turned the Panthers game and they were mentioning Malgin I thought there was a big trade I hadn't heard about.
  14. Let's Go Howard!! Show off your trade value, er, I mean skills. Lines according to MLIVE: "Tomas Tatar-Dylan Larkin-Henrik Zetterberg Justin Abdelkader-Frans Nielsen-Riley Sheahan Gustav Nyquist-Darren Helm-Thomas Vanek Andreas Athanasiou-Luke Glendening-Drew Miller Steve Ott (healthy scratch) Tomas Jurco, who had off-season back surgery, skated after practice. The defense pairs: Danny DeKeyser-Mike Green Brendan Smith-Xavier Ouellet Jonathan Ericsson- Alexey Marchenko Ryan Sproul (healthy scratch). Niklas Kronwall did not skate. In goal: Jimmy Howard (starting)" Second line is pretty ugly. Either AA should switch with Sheahan or at least switch Tatar and Abby to give that 2nd line a finisher.
  15. So 5 fights and none of them was Ott, right?
