Not having an outstanding season in GR by any means, but the kid can play. He's got so much heart, energy, LIFE!



He scored 2 goals tonight for Grand Rapids, enough of this over-riping rubbish.

I agree that next year he deserves serious consideration. But as you said, he's not having a great season in Grand Rapids, and even if he was, he couldn't jump in and be a game-changer...or frankly make much difference at all in the remaining couple of games.

Also, Nyquist is better than Tatar and played 8:50 tonight. Tatar can't do a whole lot with that type of ice time (nor could Nyquist). So the coach is also working against you on this one.

The answers have to come from within the current roster. And also from players as they return. I can't wait for Helm to be back.

Yeah but how good would this be though...

Nyquist - Datsyuk - Franzen
Filppula - Zetterberg - Hudler
Miller - Helm - Bertuzzi
Mursak - Abdelkader - Tatar

Cleary is so banged up he shouldn't be playing, Emmerton is useless, and Holmstrom is a liability at ES.

with so much awesomeness in the line up at the moment, where is he supposed to play?

that would be a nice line-up. and you are right on the other part as well.

From what I have seen of Tatar he competes every shift and is gritty enough to play on the 4th line, id be all for it.
You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.

I don't disagree with much of what you said except Holmstrom, as much as he's struggling, should still be in our lineup. He has a ttendency to sho0-2w up at important time (game six last year in San Jose), and can still be effective. With that being said, if we find ourselves down 0-2 or something like that then yes changes need to happen.

His first goal last night was really sick, I watched the game. But in all honesty I really dont see him making any impact whatsoever. I think Conner would be the better one to bring up because he would add some speed in the lineup with Helm out and Mursak not really playing

anything that will take Emmerton off the 4th line
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!
