Really excited to see him take his first step over to NA. Only 9 games but it will be nice to see him play on some smaller ice and see how he stacks up with guys in the AHL.

PS. If this should be moved to the Griffins thread of the Prospect thread I'm sorry but I figured it would be okay here since a lot have him stapled as a Red Wing next season.

If fil leaves well need him as a wing next season. And if he is as good as everyone says. The following season might replace dats on the second line.

Very exciting news, I can't say I've seen a ton of this kid outside of tournaments. Really can't wait to see how well he can adapt.

Me too.

He is going to play in 9 games with the Griffs before going back to play in European tournaments.

I was honestly thinking today that I would rather see guys like him with us next year then guys like Sammy Bert or cleary.

Iirc when we had the DAT zet and hull line that was like the third line right? What better way to get used to the NHL then actually play there. And with salary cap now. I'd like to see the youth down there. Really don't even need eaves or miller any more.

huge news. i'd love to see him get adjusted asap so he can be ready at the earliest next year if the transition goes well.


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

Do we really need another small Euro who will be lucky not to get knocked off the puck in the NHL?

 

 

I know he has good upside, but you can only have so many similar players in the lineup at the same time.  

 

I just hope they find some big wingers if they plan on calling him up in the next year or so.  And don't put him on the 4th line like they do with Nyquist and others from GR.     


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

Happy to hear it. Any experience he can get NOW will only help him out later, make him more ready when training camp starts. 

 

Hoping to see Järnkrok, Tatar and Nyquist all with the Wings next season.

Nyquist and Jarnkrok will need to beef up a little.  

 

Tatar should already be a regular since he plays a grittier game than those two.

This kid only weighs 175 lbs.  He's got a while before he's ready to play in the NHL effectively.  I am happy to see what he can do in the AHL though.

Interesting move by Kenny. Is this to size up Jarnkrok, or to make sure he knows what style of hockey to prepare himself for this summer?

I wonder if this is a 'get a few games in now and be ready to be a "Black Ace" after the Euro tournaments'?

How heavy was Z in his rookie season? In fact, he and Datsyuk got rag-dolled in the playoffs until 2007. I expect Jarnkrok to take several years playing in the NHL before he reaches his physical potential. Not to say he'll be as good as those two.

Jarnkrok won't be eligible to play in the NHL this year. Only the AHL as per his deal with the SEL. I'm thinking he can't be a Black Ace. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Right, I completely agree.  As I said, he's got a couple more years before he'll play in the NHL effectively.

And that's why I rely on others when it comes to the ins and outs of contracts and such. ;)

Cool. And you'd agree that he'd be relatively good in the league next year, for example, and continue to improve each season? Much like Dats and Z?

I wouldn't agree to that because I have never seen him play, and the odds are against him ever being as good as either of those two.  We'll see what he turns in to, but in general I'm against comparing the development of a 21 year old prospect with no North American hockey experience to vaunted NHL superstars. 

 

Then again, I would have said the same thing about Dats and Z at that age.  And I would have been wrong.
