I wonder if KH and co. have considered calling Landon or Riley up to help our ridiculously awful Penalty Kill. 

 

Ferraro can skate and check like Helm, plus he's having a really nice rebound year in GR.

Sheahan is a big strong kid who excels defensively.

I think either/or could give our rotten PK a real shot in the arm.

As I stated in about every thread since last year, bench Daniel Cleary.  I'd like to see Ferraro, because I haven't had a chance and everyone says Helm with hands

I'm really high on Sheahan. I think he's a potential long time Wing with size. Penalty kill would be helped immensely. Although when Mule and Z were out there tonight they looked great.


BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Again, Sheahan has the Cabrera syndrome factor. You take this man.

I'd love to have them both up as well, but realistically, they have to comply with the 23 man roster.

Our roster as it stands:

 

Mule - Z - Brunner

Flip - Pav - Tatar

Bert - Abs - Cleary

Tootoo - Emmerton - Miller

 

Kronner - Ericsson

Quincy - Lashoff

Huskins - White

 

Howard

Mrazek

 

Kindl - Eaves - Gustavsson 

 

IR - Helm, Mursak, Sammy, Cola, Smith, Joe Mac

 

23 Active - 6 Injured Reserve

 

 

To call up either/or both, they'd have to send one or two down, and all but Tatar would be exposed to waivers. I thought Tatar played a solid game, and deserves a second chance(hopefully on Datsyuk's wing), so I'd hate to see him sent down.

 

That leaves us with Cleary, Miller, Eaves as possible demotions. Emmerton I would expect is safe as a center, though if he, or any of the other guys mentioned could be salvaged and traded for picks, that'd be a huge bonus.

I'd rather have Sheahan purely because he is center. While Ferraro has played center occasionally, lately he's been on the wing. The wings are over stocked with wingers.

For me, it would be Sheahan.  As noted, it could only happen if another injury occurs or if Tatar is sent back down.  I think Sheahan, or even Andersson, could be upgrades over Emmerton.  It's unfortunate, but Emmerton just seems to react too slowly and just isn't strong enough.

I was under the impression that Ferraro had disappointed. I looked up his current season stats, and while they're good for the AHL, I don't see them as spectacular.  33 points in 44 games, 0 +/-.  Previous season 56 games, 20 points, -6.  I know stats don't tell the whole story, but I haven't heard anyone talk about him as a future Wing, other than a few odd call-ups.  I don't think he'd add anything to our lineup.  We already have a bunch of wingers.

 

Sheahan, same thing.  I've heard his potential is a 4th line player for the Wings, but his grit would be helpful.  I don't follow the prospects closely, though, so I might be missing some intangibles.  Although his +/- looks good.

Ferrarro is a center with a lot of speed. He has been so bad the past couple years that him actually improving is making a bunch of us giddy about him, I can see him being an upgrade to Emmerton pretty easily.  And Sheahan has been consistently strong defensively, physical and can chip in offensively. Neither of these guys will be top 6 players, at least as of now.

I'm towards Sheahan...

 

He at least has his "Tinky-Winky" purse to swing at the opposition.

Hes been awesome. Hes leading the AHL in short handed points, hits, is scoring at a solid clip. He looks like a Helm clone in the AHL. A little less speedy and better offense

The issue with bringing in one or both is the logjam of forwards we have in the bottom six right now. When Helm returns, the PK will improve tremendously. While it won't happen this year, in the next two or so years I'd eventually like to see a bottom six of something like...

Tatar-Helm-Ferraro
Abdelkader-Sheahan-Tootoo

I only have Tatar on the 3rd line because I feel like Jarnkrok or some free agent will be able to jump into our top 6 by then (optimistic, I know).

Sheahan could be top 6, because of the size. If anyone has seen GR play this year, you would see that he is always in good position. O and he did burry a nice back gander tonight. The Central is full of good sized centers and the Wings need to keep up
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Sheahan could ever develop a consistent offensive game, he could project as a 2nd/3rd line center but until then, 3rd/4th is more realistic. I still think though that either he or Andersson would be an upgrade at 4th line center over Emmerton right now. Waiver exemptions are a hell of a thing though.

False.

 

Tatar is waiver exempt all season. They can recall him or send him back down whenever they'd like. His waiver exempt status runs out after this season. Same goes for Lashoff.

Might want to read that again. He said ALL BUT Tatar would have to be exposed to waivers meaning that Tatar IS waiver exempt.

Oops. Missed the "all". Sorry about that, I'll go get some more coffee. However, Lashoff is also waiver exempt.

I think Andersson is ahead of Ferraro and Sheahan on the call up pecking order. I'm sure if injuries pile up up front, we may get a look at all of them at some point. I'm sure they want to get a look at Andersson at some point this season. Babcock is really high on the kid, and his waiver exemption runs out after this season.

 

Also, I don't think the Red Wings would waive Miller, Cleary or Eaves. The players that would most likely have waivers looming over their heads are MacDonald, Mursak, Emmerton and possibly Huskins. And, once someone comes off IR I'm sure Tatar will be sent back down.
