Another Wing injured?
Posted 27 December 2009 - 09:25 AM
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.

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?

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

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!

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.

Remember the other day when you asked me what was the definition of Pyrrhic Victory...?

Sounds like it might have been preplanned:
"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."
