Both Bäckman and Järnkrok chosen to the Swedish national team roster for next week's tournament.

Those two just keep getting better and better. Plus, we still have guys in juniors that have international experience as well as in the AHL and select European leagues as well.

Some exciting prospects that we will all enjoy soon enough are playing beastly outside North America.

​That's "rich". Glad you decided to make your way back to this forum. You always had so much great input.

Jarnkrok will be essentially the same size Z was in his rookie year.

Can't wait to see these guys when the Griffins come out and play the Abbottsford Heat in B.C. in March. (About an hour from me)

 

We should have an LGW Prospects Watch meet at the game.  Maybe even do dinner before the game so someone more in the know can brief me on the prospects.

I'm praying that size isn't the only aspect that he is similar to a rookie Z.

 

What do you guys think are his chances of making the Wing's roster out of camp next year? Hakan has said multiple times he won't won't need AHL time and allowing him to center the 3rd line will allow us to roll 3 scoring lines with strong 2-way ability and a probably one of the best 4th lines in the league with Abby-Helm-TooToo

 

Perhaps something like (Assuming we re-sign Brunner and Fil)

 

Gus-Pav-Mule

Fil-Z-Brunner

Tatar-Jarnkrok-Bert

Abby-Helm-22

Sammy,Andersson

Kronwall used to be like 95 lbs....now he Kronwalls. Jarnkrok will be fine. He'll hit the gym hard this summer when he comes to North America and he'll be up to 190 lbs by start of season next year. Plus his nickname is Ironhook...that's just badass.

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

Igor Larionov.

 

The problem is that we have too many undersized, skill players, not that he or anyone else happens to be undersized individually.  A little diversity in the farm system wouldn't hurt.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I want Jarnkrok up badly next year. Pulks should spend a year in grand rapids though. He isn't producing massively at the moment.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Kronwall - Ericsson

Sproul - Oulette

Backman - Marchenko


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!

Totally understood.  I wouldn't have cited Igor as an example if Richdg would have added "at this time" or words to that effect to the end of the statement.  But, you are correct.  We could use (need) more size in the lineup.  Balance is essential.

With the exception of Lashoff, those are all players of the future (maybe).  Were talking about the present.  "Live in the now, man!"  LOL

Like a 6' 200 lbs Mitch Callahan, 6'2" 207 Joakim Anderson, 6'2" 212 Riley Sheahan, 6'4" 208 Louis-Marc Aubry, or 6'2" Tomas Jurco in GR?  Maybe add a 6' 193 Martin Frk, 6'2" 217 Marek Tvrdon, 6'2" 200 Andrej Nestrasil, or 6'6" 207 Rasmus Bodin to that list?  And that's just on the forward front.  

 

Time will tell how they all develop but overall, I think Kenny & the staff have been doing a pretty bang up job in mixing in more size to the prospect pool in the last few drafts.

Have you seen any of those guys play? I have. Well some of them. Nicastro can't get any PT at GR. They keep signing guys to tryout contracts and keep him on the bench. Aubry has like 4 points in 40 games as a C/W. Not very good at all. Nestrasil was so good at GR they sent him back to Toledo. Most of the rest have yet to even play a pro game. Now maybe some work out. But if we get 3 off of that list, we will be lucky. We already have 1-lashoff. Prospects are just that. Potential. But untill they DO they are nothing.
