You forgot Kopecky.

Liv will be the starter in Grand Rapids...MacIntyre hasn't even fully recovered from his injury and was shuttling back and forth to Toledo last season.

Liv will probably see 50-60 games as a Griffin this year. The rest will go to Mac and/or Koopmans.

Kopecky and Hudler will both have big years. Kopecky has added size and strength (he's now 6-3, 203) and has had some time off over the summer to recover from the injury that cost his large chunks of the last two seasons.

Jiri Hudler
Tomas Kopecky
Eric Manlow
Eric Himelfarb
Matt Ellis
Ryan Barnes
Ernie Hartlieb
Tomek Valtonen
Darryl Bootland
Todd Jackson
Ryan Oulahen
Valtteri Filppula

Defense
Bryan Helmer
Derek Meech
Kyle Quincey
Brett Lebda
Travis Richards
Mirsolav Blatak

Goal
Stefan Liv
Drew MacIntyre/Logan Koopmans

eh I'm sorry but in my opinon not only does Kopecky suck, after this year he'll be done in the AHL. That GR roster though, I'm liking how it looks, got some good young strong players there.

Yes, after this year Kopecky will be done in the A. He will have a good shot at being in Detroit because this year he'll be back to the dominant form he showed when he first started in the AHL.

MacIntyre wasn't shuttling back and forth to Toledo last season..he played the whole season in Grand Rapids as Joey Macdonalds back-up and was awful. Thats why He only played like 10 games, because he got shelled every time he stepped in net. He needs another full season in Toledo, or to be traded

If Liv starts, will MacDonald just become his backup like that, after playing most of the games?

What about Lamothe?

I'm not sure exactly what you mean..Joey Macdonald will be the backup in detroit. IF Liv is even signed he'd be in Grand rapids. Lamothe is gone, he's playing in Russia i believe.

I wouldnt call 2 games out of 80 shuttling back and forth. Hopefully they'll sign Howard or Liv, and a vet and send MacIntyre back down.

bootland should get called up to replace mccarty, he fits that role perfectly

This won't happen, at least not right away. From what I understand the DRW brass was not all that impressed with Booter's day on/day off play. I for one think he's worth his salt and then some but he's going to have to impress the powers that be for a few games before he is given a role to fill like McCarty's. I'd like to see it, I'm a huge Booter fan. Let's just hope he gets picked back up to begin with.
