Ken Holland & Co. Prospects vs. Steve Yzerman & Co. Prospects

Ok, we gotta have a topic here for the Calder Cup Finals.

Grand Rapids Griffins are taking on the Syracuse Crunch, who are the defending champions (Tampa's affiliate was Norfolk last year). They have only lost 4 total games the past 2 post season, only 1 so far this post season.

I know we were kind of worried/looking forward to this, but with the big clubs. However this should be pretty exciting for Wings fans.

Game 1 Sat., June 8 GRIFFINS at Crunch 7 p.m.
Game 2 Sun., June 9 GRIFFINS at Crunch 6 p.m.
Game 3 Wed., June 12 Crunch at GRIFFINS 7 p.m.
Game 4 Fri., June 14 Crunch at GRIFFINS 7 p.m.
*Game 5 Sat., June 15 Crunch at GRIFFINS 7 p.m.
*Game 6 Tue., June 18 GRIFFINS at Crunch 7 p.m.
*Game 7 Thu., June 20 GRIFFINS at Crunch 7 p.m.

For those that haven't seen it, this is the Playoff intro video the Griffins had at the beginning of the postseason.

And as I said before the 2 most coveted NCAA free agents will face each other for the Calder Cup. Sustr has 5 assists 21 PIMs and is +9 in 12 playoff games.

Athough he hasn't played for them yet, I think DeKeyser should get the start on Saturday.

Would be nice if NHL Networks picks up the Calder finals...to then have better feeds instead of the jumbotron view via ahllive.

Dekeyser is said to start for game 1 of the finals.

FlashyG said he might do up a cool GDT. That would be awesome. Hope he does!

I've already started on one for game 1. I'm willing to do them for the whole series but if people would prefer one for the whole series I can do it that way too.

I thought the Syracuse Crunch were the Ducks affiliate in the last few seasons?

Doesn't that mean their roster and prospect development is more the Ducks doing than it is Yzerman's, being only their first season as Lightning affiliate and all?

Tampa moved their affiliate from Norfolk to Syracuse for this season and Anaheim's are in Norfolk

For our team, "Hakan Andersson and Co. Prospects" may be more accurate.

I don't think there are more than 3 players on the Griffins who Hakan had anything to do with.

The AHL is live-streaming, for free, all Calder Cup final games at www.ahllive.com, code CALDER2013. This per Ansar Khan's tweet, among others.

More like Nill and Howe, yeah?

Maybe Bowman can have some credit too.

Except for the bad picks...All the bad picks can be blamed on Holland.

Ah, I see.

I noticed there was still someone on the roster who played for the Ducks, but I guess Tampa never picked that player up.
