Sweet goal. :siren:

I see him as a 20-40 type guy in the NHL. He's just so skilled. What a steal.

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

He's looking better and better. Unfortunately there's no room for him on the roster this year (unless injuries become a problem for us) but probably next year. Has potential to be a top 6 man but too early to tell yet...

Fingers crossed that injuries will not play such a role to us this season, but it seems as if we are already starting down the old injury road. I was hoping that Mursak would have his shot this season, but that ankle is going to slow him down. I see a slow rehab for him (Mursak) and more time spent in grand rapids

I'm very happy that there are so many young potential top 6 forwards in the system: Nyquist, Tatar, Jarnkrok, Pulkkinen, Jurco. In the last 3-4 years all the forwards who've made the team have been bottom line grinders (Helm, Abdelkader, Mursak).

Post-game update: Red Wings' Gustav Nyquist heading to Grand Rapids; Patrick Eaves is OK

I hope he's not another Kindl waiting to happen. As in, guy almost makes the team out of camp and then... well, you know.

I'm still high on Kindl and have confidence he can become a 2nd pairing defenceman, but I tend to agree. If you've got a kid that can clearly make a positive contribution to the team which Nyquist can, why send him down? He performed so well in the PS and for what, the chance of a call-up at some stage this year? He was dominant most nights he played, and this started a month back at prospects camp and continued right until the final PS game. Disappointing for him that he went out there, did his best, outperformed virtually everyone, and it still wasn't good enough because he's got options.

I'll reiterate what I said yesterday before this game even happened.

I'm ok with trying to see if Emmerton will clear waivers and signing Brunner to a one-way deal in hopes that we can see if he'll clear waivers to be sent down while playing Nyquist. I just think Gustav just has too much skill, skill that would significantly help the team more than Emmerton or Brunner. When Mursak comes back, then try and call up Emmerton or Brunner and send Nyquist back down.


Except Sit Miller or trade Hudler when Mursak comes back. Nyquist needs to be on this team. If his only flaw is that he isn't big enough at the moment, then that's ok. Hudler/Filppula have never been big. Zata and Pavs were tiny when they entered the league in a much rougher era.

Actually, the more I think about it, the more disappointed I get. He flat out produced every single game, how can you send him down??? I get that he's young, I get that he's small, I get that you'd have to waive one of Emmerton/Brunnstrom for him to make it, but he is that good. He is a legitimate scoring talent. I can't see how they can dismiss everything he did in the PS simply because he has options. He is good enough, right now, to help this team and that's all that should matter. The sooner this kid is with this team to help reach his potential, the better.

IMO, he's the shot in the arm that this talented - but not quite stanley cup level - team has been hanging on and waiting for. Twenty-two is far from being too young to play in the NHL. I think we need to get him ready for the post-season. Put him on Datsyuk's wing and keep him there for the entire season. Let them develop some chemistry. The lines shape out really nicely after that. Then if we can make nice use of all that cap space at the deadline, this could be a championship team. The clock is ticking on this squad. We need to have some urgency here.

In addition to keeping Nyquist on the 23-man roster, I'd also keep Brunnstrom. He's just got so much more potential than Miller or Emmerton. I'd really hate to lose him. Then we can just try to get Emmerton or Miller through waivers...probably won't be able to...and it probably won't really be THAT big of a blow either.

Thoughts?

blueadams why do you keep posting lines with Holmstrom on the top line? He's not going to be on the top line this year....

Not only does he make the team, but he plays on the top line all season.

What an achievement.

And with Homer on the line to boot.

I hope Datsyuk doesn't die of exhaustion by the end of October if that's the case.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

The Detroit Red Wings assigned eight players today to the Grand Rapids Griffins: forwards Chris Conner, Joakim Andersson and Landon Ferraro; defensemen Doug Janik, Garnet Exelby and Brian Lashoff; and goaltenders Joey MacDonald and Jordan Pearce.

Janik, Exelby, Conner and MacDonald will go on waivers Monday and have until noon Tuesday to clear, at which point they would join the Griffins.

I'm with you. In the games I've watched plus the highlights he's really impressed me. I didn't see any of the games he played in Grand Rapids at the tail end of last season but from all reports the shift from college hockey to the A was quite smooth. It would make sense to send him down if he wasn't slated for a top 9 role so he can play top 6 minutes every night rather than playing 8 minutes a night and sitting in the press box every other night. However he seems like he could slip into the top 9 quite easily. In Kenny we trust etc etc...

I guess it's understandable why he got sent down and not just from a "managing assets" perspective. The pre-season is a "warm up" time for NHL veterans. Of course the players who are fighting for a better job are going to look better.
