Thus begineth the over-ripening.

 

I would rather see a player of his caliber play a full season in the AHL getting top line minutes than play in the NHL getting 9-12 minutes a game on the 3rd and 4th lines.  Plus, playing in the AHL will help him with his development and confidence.

Yep. Its damage control really, try to lessen then chance of ruining or hampering a prospects development. The Wings can't afford to do that with their high level prospects.

Now, I could be totally off-base because I don't know how long the tournament overseas lasts, but would he be at all eligible for the Griffins playoff run?

No he is not, I don't believe. This article states more information though;

http://www.mlive.com...ct_calle_j.html

 

Jarnkrok cannot be called up by the Red Wings.

 

Holland said he asked NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly if the Red Wings could bring Jarnkrok to North America now that his team, Brynas, is eliminated from the playoffs.

 

Daly spoke to the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation and and was told any player on the first year of an NHL entry-level contract who played in Europe this season would be allowed to come over and play in the AHL only. But, the player must return to his Swedish club by April 15 to play in tournament games and get ready for the World Championship.

 

“Next year, the plan is he'll come to North America and compete for a job in Detroit,'' Holland said. “This is an opportunity for him to experience North American hockey for 2½ weeks.''

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. 


Im pretty sure those stats are old, he have added a few more pounds now. I belive He weights around 180-185 lbs now. 



Edit: http://www.hockeylig...e/trupp/BIF/479 stats from this season. 82kgs, about 181 pounds.

Hoping someone with more insight could answer a question.

 

Why was he drafted so late?

- Ranked #4 Euro. #1 Swede. (Actual draft: #10 Euro, #4 Swede)

- The 3 Swedes drafted before him only played in the J20 SuperElit while he was already promoted playing in the Elitserien.

 

Was it simply just a size issue?


"The leader must never close the gap between himself and the group. If he does, he is no longer what he must be. He must walk a tightrope between the consent he must win and the control he must exert."
Vince Lombardi
 
When asked who won, Babcock said, “Well it doesn’t really matter as long as you don’t lose. It’s like going bear hunting, you take a slow guy with you in case the bear is hungry.”

Grand Rapids doesn't play until Thursday the 28th against San Antonio. That should be his first game and when we'll really know. I doubt they'll be releasing anything major other than videos of "hello, how do you like it?" until then.

IIRC It was just a size issue, guy was 5'10 and around a buck fifty. If he was the same size he is now on his draft day he'd go in the 1st round.

 

Similar to how his cousin Elias Lindholm (6' 192lbs) is projected to go top 5-10, However Elias has a (marginally) higher ceiling than Calle.

Nice article about Jarnkrok's first practice with the Griffs before they embark on their 6 game road trip.
 

“It’s smaller ice and the speed is much faster,” said Jarnkrok when comparing his first AHL practice to his time in Sweden. “I have to make all of my decisions faster. I think that’s the biggest change (I need to make),”

“He’s real, real smart. Competes real hard, strong on his skates for not a big guy, can really pass the puck and actually showed an ability to shoot the puck out there,” said Blashill. “He’s got lots of tools. Now it’s putting it together and showing you can be productive on the smaller sheet.”



Jarnkrok has been compared to Red Wings center Henrik Zetterberg and that’s just fine by him. Jarnkrok’s favorite team growing up was the Red Wings and his favorite player was Zetterberg. “When I watch him play, I try to take after what he’s doing good.”

Am I the only one who gets depressed a bit reading up on prospects who say they watched players like Z & Pavs "growing up"?  Man I feel old right now.

Lol...omgosh, anyone listen to Blashill at the end of that clip? Sounds like he's trying to mock/do his best impression of Babcock.

Wouldn't be shocked to see Pulkkinen pulled over to GR for some games yet this season.  Put him on Jarnkrok's wing & see what they can do.
