Oh my god yes. I have already fully committed my fandom to the Griffins in replace of the Red Wings during the lockout. It would be wonderful if FSN provided a legal means for me to watch the games.

We definitely need some GDTs up in this heezy. All this lock-out tension needs some release.

Griffins would be nice. Would be even better if more of the Wings had joined the team. Classic games would be cool too, at least if I don't remember the outcome.

I voted Griffin's as well. I can't see our present players, so I want to see our future ones!

Voted for griffins because I really want to watch nyquist/smith/jurco... They're the future.

(Commented college hockey as #2 choice of course)

Some of them should be present ones

Judging by the training camp roster, it looks like the Griffs are going to rely a lot more on prospects and youth this year.
Brunnstrom, Minard and Conner were the veteran forwards last year with some NHL experience replaced by Triston Grant (more of a grinder/goon) with only 8 games NHL experience.
Janik and Exelby were the vets on D last year with some NHL experience replaced by Natahan Paetsch.
I don't think there are any other vets listed in the training camp roster. Either they are still going to sign some or are going to give the youngsters more responsibility. It's going to be interesting to see how they do.
Goaltending will be a key. MacDonald is gone and there isn't a vet replacement for him. I don't think McCollum has ever looked good since being drafted by the Wings unless he had a powerhouse team in front of him. He was terrible in the WJC and terrible in the playoffs for the Battalion when the competition got stiffer. I found that Pierce looked good whenever he was the designated starter for a stretch but wasn't good as a backup (if they have a game log for that you will see this is very accurate and I wonder if it's an anomaly or if he doesn't like sitting). Mrazek is an unknown as a professional but he certainly has the ability and competitive edge and goalies younger than him have come in and got the job done in the NHL. I think Mrazek will come in and win the starting job and possibly contend for rookie of the year and give them the best goaltending they have had in years. Hopefully Jurco can also contend for rookie of the year. They are younger than rookies coming out of college so it would be very impressive for either of them to do so
Hopefully coaching will be better this year
Too bad Brunner won't be there.

Bulls*** if true, but understandable if they put it to a vote on their site since most people don't care about hockey, only we do. Most people in this country only care about basketball, football, nascar, etc.
