Injured
Ian White Out 2-3 Weeks

i wonder who the odd man out will be, and if this is likely the end of lashoffs time here. i sure hope not. he needs experience over our rental emergency signed player.

Lash and Smith are the only waiver-exempt defensemen we have, which means Lash would be the first to be sent down. So unless Kenny/Babs are working on getting Kindl some ice time in preparation for a trade, we'd likely see Lashoff back with the Griffs when Ian returns.

However, it's likely inevitable that we'll see Lashoff in Detroit again this year. Someone will get injured, and Lash will be right back in Red & White.

how likely would it be that huskins would get picked up on waivers if we tried to send him down? apparently nobody wanted him before we signed him a week into the season.

I suppose it depends on when he would theoretically be sent to waivers. The longer the season goes on, the more and more likely he would get picked (as teams get their rosters set for the playoffs, and late injuries send teams into a panic).

That said, it's highly, HIGHLY unlikely that he would be sent down. Lashoff will get more minutes in GR (where he could be higher in the D pairings) than he will in Detroit, where he's pretty much assured of the 5/6 line, if not riding the bench. Best to let him get more minutes playing under a coach that's phenomenal at getting young talent to perform well, then to be up in Detroit where he'll get fewer minutes, and fewer games played.

Lashoff is 22. He'll have plenty of time to develop into a potential every-game player here in Detroit. Until then, he's waiver exempt, and will do better where he can play consistently, so it makes the most sense to send him down.

He has played good though, other teams see that. They didn't want to take the gamble, but they see the reward. Plus why would you want to put our only stay at home d-man on waivers anyways?
