The new Swedish Five.

Franzen-Zetterberg-Nyquist
Lidstrom / Kronwall / Ericsson

I wonder how they would do against the old Swedish five.

Holmstrom-Zetterberg-Samuelsson
LIdstrom-Lilja

The Detroit Griffins are ready to play... Oh wait, aren't the Griffins basically terrible? Ruh-roh. :ph34r:

Jk btw no need to flip out.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Sadly, this kind of tsunami of injuries seems to be a yearly event for us.

I remember a few years ago when Matt updated the Lets Go Wings logo to include a band-air over the word Wings, and Griffins inserted in. At this rate, he'll have to break that out again.

Fortunately, it seems we're only a few games away from Lidstrom and Datsyuk returning, so with any luck this will be the last of the rash of injuries.

*update* Per Ansar Khan, it's Abdelkader that might be out tonight, with the flu. Andersson brought up just as a precaution.

Ken Holland said Abdelkader has flu and is gametime decision. Andersson recalled just in case

You got it right, they recall players from Toledo.

Obviously you're being (somewhat) facetious, but the Griffins are an obvious mix of NHL-level talent and AHLers. When I say obvious I mean - even as you watch them on the ice - and the likes of Nyquist, Andersson, Smith, etc. make up that core of NHLers, so it's not like we're calling up Jamie Johnson.

I don't believe Bruunstrom is waiver exempt, so they would risk him being claimed by another team for nothing before clearing, while the younger players wouldn't have that problem.

We're so damn lucky (thanks to great scouting) to have the depth we have in Grand Rapids. And personally, I'm so grateful we get to see the Griffins here.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

I'm going to the Griffins game in Houston on Saturday. There wont be anyone good left for me to see at this rate.

You'll get to see Callahan and Aubry at least. Ferraro is also looking good too. Pus you always have The Sauce out there :)

What's this based on, wishful thinking?

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Brunnstrum was signed to a 1 year, 2-way contract. So technically he doesn't have to clear waivers to be called up. Only 1-way contracts go through the waiver process.

Not true. Players on 2 way contracts still have to go through waivers if they are not waiver exempt. A 2 way contract only means the player makes different salary depending on where they're playing, typically more in the NHL and less in the AHL, ECHL, et al.

NHL Waiver Rules

Do 1-Way and 2-Way contracts affect Waivers?

Simply put, no they do not. This is a common misconception. 1-way and 2-way contracts have nothing to do with waivers. They are for salary purposes between the AHL and NHL. The confusion is understandable, most players with 2-way contracts are waiver exempt because of the reasons above (in the linked article). Most players on 1-way contracts aren’t waiver exempt. Just keep in mind that the chart above is the only thing that determines a players waiver status.


Plus, the Wings had to place Brunner on waivers to send him down to GR in October.

I think we should talk about Joakim.

He struck me as defensively as competent as Emmerton or Homer. I wouldn't mind thinking of Emmerton as expendable due to Joakim.
