I may be in the minority here but I havent been all that impressed with Andersson. For having a big body, he doesnt use it alot. What does he bring to the tabe for this team? I know he is young but he certainly hasnt dazzled. I would prefer Eaves in the line-up

 

i agree about not using his body at all. 9 times out of 10, when a guy gets his first couple games in the nhl, he is skating around hitting everyone making sure the coaches know hes out there making an impact. andersson was the opposite of that. he was like franzen jr out there.

 

overall though, i do think he played well. i just wished we had someone more physical filling that bottom 6 role.


I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

He's currently too slow to cut it in the NHL.

Babcock needs to put him on the line with Tootoo, have him show the kid how to throw his body around, and if he still doesn't get it, send him back down and call up Sheahan, he knows how to use his size.

Small sample size but he holds a 71.4% face off percentage right now.  Certainly beats the 45.5% win percentage held by the Wings current 4th line center.

Ok, that's one stat but let's look at the rest of his play... Took a silly penalty, is a minus, has three giveaways and no takeaways and no shots on goal. He has potential but he is not NHL ready verses a solid role player who has a wicked wrister, some speed and is very effective on the PK.

Eaves is glass.  Andersson is probably trying real hard not to get out of position right now, so it's probably safe to say he needs a bit more time to get comfortable with a spot in the line-up before he goes all out.  I'd rather give the new blood a chance.  


Eaves was out of the line up with a serious concussion.....give the brother a minute!

Just wondering if he is still dealing with that to some degree. They do seem to be finding every reason to not play him.

I think Andersson played well. Hitting everyone in his sight? No, definitely, but his positioning was good, he is going to the tough areas, fighting for the puck. Reminded me Mule in his first games with the big club.


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!

He might be all right someday, but right now we have other NHL ready players in Tatar, Nyquist, and Lashoff. Mrazek is probably close, too, but I'd rather he get playing time.
