"Had 24 goals, 58 points in 35 games for the Kingston Frontenacs of the OHL before suffering a broken leg that likely will keep him out the rest of the season. Probably two years away from joining the Wings."

This from the Wings assistant GM... bad news.

^Ugh! I was hoping to get a look at Emmerton. Anyone wanna take a guess at Helm's chances of making it?


I heard Jim Nill say that they think Helm could be on the new generation grindline with Mathias and Aebeldenker(sp?).

Helm will be a good one...he won't set the world on fire with offense in the NHL, but he could be a Draper with better offensive upside. Think 04 Draper.

I guess I expected more from these two. Abdelkader was taken with the 42nd pick in the 2005 draft, ahead of Latendresse (lets not go there). And then Matthias, taken with the 47th pick. I guess the first hope is that they’ll make the NHL, but in the back of your mind you want a little more than grind line players with 2nd rounders.

Historically, more second rounders DO NOT make the NHL than do, altough there are several notable success stories. Second rounders are usually either a gamble, or a safe journeyman pick with flaws. Emmerton, Matthias and Abdelkader have already made significant strides in their development; so at this point they can be considered successful. Based upon his clear superiority as a skater, Abdelkader has more potential for a successful NHL career than Latty.

Emmerton has returned to the ice and in his two games back he has a goal and an assist. Would people agree that Emmerton is our best offensive prospect?

Second rounders have a longer average career than first rounders, just FTR.

Yeah, him and Mursak look like being our best offensive prospect's. Helm looks made for the role of penalty kill specialist with some offensive upside. Mursak is just pure speed and skills, needs to bulk up a little but Emmerton could be a future franchise player.

Wings signed Emmerton today

http://www.mlive.com..._04.html#247207

QUOTE
The Wings have signed forward Cory Emmerton, their 2006 top draft pick (41st overall, second round) to a three-year entry-level contract. Emmerton skated with some of the Wings at Wednesday's optional practice at Joe Louis Arena. He's expected to sign an amateur tryout contract with Grand Rapids within the next couple of days and play in some regular season games for the Griffins. He'll also be eligible for the AHL playoffs. This does not affect his junior eligibility. He can still be sent back to Kingston next season


So it looks like he's going to play for the Griffs in the playoffs; that should be interesting.

Although this is a dead topic, I love Cory Emmerton and personally can't wait to see him in a Wings uni. When we drafted him, I did some digging and liked what I saw.

Me too. I'm dying for the Wings to develop a very good North American offensive player.

Emmerton 'still a prospect' but needs big year
By Sarah Lindenau RedWingsCentral.com / September 21, 2010

It was a long summer for Cory Emmerton.

The 6-foot, 188-pound center struggled to improve his offensive production last season compared to his American Hockey League rookie campaign with Grand Rapids Griffins.

In the end he managed a modest 12 goals and 25 assists for 37 points compared to his 35-point output in 2008-09.

"I played really well defensively last season and I think I grew a lot that way," he said. "It is one of those things I was really focusing on, really being better defensively and being responsible, but I think a lot of the time I was taking myself out of the offensive plays and that really hurts your scoring chance."

Emmerton was one of several players who played below their potential last season for the Griffins. As a result, the club finished seventh in the Western Conference and did not qualify for the playoffs.

After the Griffins' playoff elimination, the Red Wings recalled a group of players to Detroit to serve as Black Aces, but Emmerton who had been a Black Ace in previous years was not one of them.

"It was disappointing, but at the same time as bad as it sounds, I didn't want to go," Emmerton said. "It's a great experience and you want to be part of that but at the same time I didn't really earn it.

"I knew I had a lot to work on and I pretty much went right home and I got down to business in the gym. I didn't really take any time off."

The former 2006 second-round draft pick focused his attention on improving his shot and working on his skate edging so he can better protect the puck.

"When the season ended I went home and I took a step back," Emmerton said. "I really thought to myself, 'What do I need to do to better myself to be the point-producer I was in junior?' One of the things I thought back to was in junior I shot the puck a lot more. I lost a little bit of confidence in my shot so I concentrated on making it harder and quicker this summer."

The St. Thomas, Ontario native admits he has a tendency to over-think the play and look for the perfect pass or shot. He knows if he puts more pucks on net this season it will result in more production.

"Points come from shooting the puck more," he said. "Last year I didn't think I had nearly enough shots and there were times when I was taking too long to shoot it as opposed to just throwing it on net. I need to just put the puck on net and maybe create chances for my linemates."

There is a lot on the line for the 22-year-old as he enters a contract year. With his waiver exemption up at season's end, he needs to work his way back onto the NHL radar.

"He needs a good year in the American League," said Red Wings general manager Ken Holland. "It's hard to set your sights on the NHL when you are an average American League player. The biggest thing is (to) be better this year than you were last year. We still like him, though, and we still think he's a prospect."
