Title says it all.

 

Looks like he wont have to return after a set amount of games either, like Jarnkrok.

Yep, Jokerit bombed out of the playoffs, after finishing the SM-liiga season in #1. Surprised he didn't get here two weeks ago when that happened.

I'm curious to see what he's able to do.  I generally think shooters do better at crossing the pond than playmakers, so he should be ok there.  But it's a faster game than it is there, and from what I hear he'll not the best skater in the world. 

 

It'll be fun to watch though.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Supposedly, Richard Nedomlel & Alexei Marchenko are also in GR right now too.  Nedomlel on amateur tryout evidently.

Nedomlel signed an ELC a few days ago, though it doesn't kick in until next season. He and Paterson are with GR on tryouts. Hadn't heard anything on Marchenko.

 

Things could certainly be interesting in GR next year, adding Sproul, Ouellet, Nedomlel, and Marchenko on D, and Jarnkrok, Pulkkinen, Frk, and Tvrdon up front.

Marchenko is only there to practice, won't see any game action.

I hope we get all of the players we control signed and playing in the minors by next season. We have 2 minor league teams-46 roster positions, fill them up! Let's find out what we truely have/don't have. If all these guys are signed, then you can start building some line combo's so they can develop together.

We won't be too far off from the look of it. I believe Backman will be the only one left in Europe. We have a couple kids who have to go back to the CHL, and a few in college.

 

Pretty much the entire Griffins roster next year could be made up of kids with NHL potential.

The Griffins should be loaded with our top prospects next year shouldn't they?  They already got Jarnkrok and Pulkkinen.  I thought someone said on here that Backman was coming over next year??  Jurco is in his 1st season, Ferraro is getting better, Mrazek has been great this year, Marchenko and Nedomlel hopefully, Sheahan's still there along with Almqvist and Callahan.  I'm hoping that Sproul and Ouellet will be there, and McKee would be nice to scout as well.  I for one am excited and will likely get the AHL type Gamecentre that someone on here brought to my attention last week and watch every Wings and Griffins game all FULL season long.


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

The negative is, if GR and Tol are heavily loaded with  19, 20, 21 year olds, those teams will struggle. But no one really cares if you win Calders, they care about SC's.

How do you think Holland will adjust the Wings roster in the offseason with this in mind? Do you leave a little more room for kids to be brought up, instead of filling spots with old veterans? 

 

I guess you can always waive said veteran if need be.

Frk. Jarnkrok Jurco
Ferraro Sheahan. Pulkkinen
Tvrdon. Aubry Callahan.
Coetzee. Quine. ( a good AHL vet)

Sproul. Ouellett
Almquist. Billins
Nicastro. Marchenko
Nedomlel

Mrazek
(One of our many G prospects)

My only questions are who they will send to Toledo? You have to believe the higher ups in Toledo want to keep Coetzee and Nestrasil, and they probably will get to with the latter. If GR signs a AHL vet defenseman (and they probably should) Nedomlel or Almquist may be on their way down too. GR should think about a veteran goalie as well to mentor Mrazek. If that happens, Toledo should have one of the goalie prospects too. They could be pretty stacked next year.

Anasthasio, Backman, Jensen are in the mix too.
