And some very solid middleweights with Owens, Tardif, Smith and possibly even Kolosov who can handle himself.
Then on top of that you have some skilled guys like Mursak and Pare who will throw down and do alright on occasion. Lashoff could be a very solid scrapper as well, he just hasn't done it in Grand Rapids really unfortunately.
Yeah I think its safe to say Nyquist will be well taken care, but even Tatar has a fight this year so never say never.
ps UK I'm caught up on work now so I should be able to start catching the griffs again, must be getting lonely with hardly anyone to watch with lol
Not to mention GR has recently signed Mike Hedden, another solid middleweight fighter from the ECHL.
Kolosov isn't as strong as he used to be. He's lost some muscle this season and it shows. He's been ragdolled in his two fights this season. Pare is just one of those guys who will come out swinging when provoked. Good little player Pare. Been finding the net alot this season. He just can't defend. Smith hasn't been as physical since his injury which is understandable. Smith is a surprisingly good fight. Could easily become one of those physical defense fighters, but I doubt Detroit wants that. Tatar...just wanted to be part of the Toronto brawl I think. He did OK though, going against someone who fights several times a year.
Grand Rapids games are never boring.
Everyone who's a member of redwingslive get down tonight to watch the Griffins!
