Scored 2 third period goals tonight to help the Griffins win 4-3. Is leading the team in goals, and as a centre, would be a nice replacement for Datsyuk.

What do you think?

Cory Emmerton is the best offensive performer in Grand Rapids. He's also good defensively. FWIW.

You do realise he's been out for 2 weeks and is still out with a knee injury?

Filppula would be the best bet as he has great composer and could fill in nicely for Datsyuk. Or Mursak since he is very talented offensively and superb defensively.

You do realise he's been out for 2 weeks and is still out with a knee injury?

Plus, he wouldn't be my first choice, probably my third choice, maybe fourth.

I think Mursak is going to be called up. He has been in the AHL longer and has earned it (not to say I. Flip hasn't).

I think nobody will be called up and Babs will give Draper a solid spot on the bottom line. Abby, Helm, Eaves, and Miller may all get opportunities on the second/third line while Babcock finds chemistry for everyone.

Yes, but you were talking up iFlip as if he had been clearly the team's top player, when he hasn't been. I was just making all the information available.

iFlip has been the most consistent, though. He's been putting up points consistently, while Mursak and Tatar (I know he wasn't talked about) got like 80% of their points in 3 games or so.

I think Mursak is going to be called up. He has been in the AHL longer and has earned it (not to say I. Flip hasn't).

This is what I think too. It would kind of go against the wings loyalty to their players to just call up the old guy who has played half a season in Grand Rapids when Mursak is playing just as good offensively, and is younger.

Plus I think Mursak is better s uited for playing the fourth line type role if he has too while other guys from the current roster get their roles boosted.

Mursak can play a rough and tumble energy role, thats somethingI dont think Iflip can do.

My thinking is this. If Holland wants a top six player to come up, it has to be iFlip. If they want a Red Wing third line, it has to be Mursak. If they just want a 4th liner, you should call-up Owens.

Wings make "call up"

DETROIT, Michigan -- The Detroit Red Wings recalled defenseman Jakub Kindl from the Grand Rapids Griffins on Wednesday night.

Kindl was sent to Grand Rapids for a conditioning stint on December 9, after being left out of Detroit's lineup as a healthy scratch for over a month. In eight Griffins games he had a goal and four assists.

well Flip snr and emmerton are both getting 0.83 ppg so i say its a draw !!!

I'd call up Tatar, he's the most dynamic player of the forwards in GR.

8 games 1+4 and a -5 for Kindl, some things dont seem to change.

"Putting on the foil coach" Jeff Hanson
"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop

No to iFlip, hes a career AHLer, time to let the prospects get some NHL time under their belts.

If you were really making all the information available...

Filppula: 30 games, 12G, 13A
Emmerton: 23 games, 6G, 13A

Both 0.83 ppg.

:thumbup:

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

How do you plan on calling up someone who is injured?

iFlip has been the most consistent player on the Griffins and also the most clutch.

No to iFlip, hes a career AHLer, time to let the prospects get some NHL time under their belts.

Based on your expert opinion? Did you say the same thing about Leino? iFlip will be an NHL player, and he will be a decent 3rd/2nd line player to boot.
