Mattias Ritola admitted he was a little surprised when the parent club Detroit Red Wings recalled him from the Grand Rapids Griffins on Monday.

Imagine how shocked the 22-year-old left wing must have been after the Griffins’ 7-4 loss to the Chicago Wolves on Saturday night at Van Andel Arena.

The Red Wings recalled Ritola again after the game, and he’ll be available for Detroit’s game at Columbus on Monday night.

This is just getting downright absurd if this is the case. It seems like, "Well, you won this game, but whenever you win, you have to sacrafice something." *sigh*

Couldn't it something else, like they want to make someone a healthy scratch for a game or two and give Ritola another chance to show his stuff?? Let's not immidiately think "injury", even though that's the way the season has gone so far..

Maybe Filppula isn't quite ready?

Wouldn't that be just great... But if that was the case they would probably have called up a defenseman.

doubt it, why would they recall a forward to replace lidstrom?

I'm wondering if they're keeping him up for the time being as an extra forward, or to give someone (hopefully Leino) a chance to rest (or healthy scratch in Leino's case). It's possible that they just sent him down to play in the game vs. the Wolves, rather than just outright bench him when Flip came back against the Jackets.

At least, I'm hoping for that over the alternative theory, that he's a callup to replace another injury.

I'm sure there will be word if there is an injury, so I wouldn't get all worried over nothing.

This could be anything. Maybe there is a trade in the works...?

I was at GR's game last night. Ritola was the only one who had any fire in him. Too long of a Christmas break for some of the boys!

Actually when I saw in this morning's newspaper that Ritola has been recalled but no details about it, I thought that the GR Press was finally getting around to reporting last week's recall!

I think it is to scratch another player. Babs might be trying to get some more scoring punch. IMHO Leino is totally useless. He has gone downhill faster than a two ton ball of snow. Babs says that earlier in the season Filppula and Leino had a very good line. First of all, Williams was also on that line and scored some goals but that line didn't score that many goals ANYWAY! Secondly, they were only a "good" line because all the other lines flat out sucked in the beginning of the year.

Leino is useless.... his skating needs drastic improvement. He is weak on the puck, can't win the battles in the corners and hasn't been going to the net..... so what good is he???? He is not a premier penalty killer. I really don't think the Wings resign him unless they get him for cheap and he is willing to prove himself. He is not playing with the energy and intensity required by the Winged Wheel.
Defense and goaltending win championships!!!

More flu?

Sounds like it might have been preplanned:

QUOTE
Fraser, for one, said another recall will be a boon for both the young Swede and the Griffins.

"I think this is good for Matt," Fraser said. "He’ll go up there for a week and continue to get back on track so that when he comes back down here hopefully he’ll be our best player every night."
