You are both forgetting Lashoff.

Brennan Evans and Jeff Hoggan have both played in the NHL before as well, for different teams.

Recorded the end of the game radio broadcast and put these together.

 

 

Thank you so much for this. Iheartradio and the feed were way off the night of the game, and I had to miss last night's celebration; so this is really awesome.

I know a lot of people were mentioning the Nyquist/Andersson/Dekeyser/Lashoff journey, but how about the journey of Petr Mrazek.  Watching him play it's tough to remember this is his first year pro.  Seems like last year he was playing those games in the ECHL not this year.  Dude had some unbelievable saves at the end of game 6.

 

He made a sequence of saves all right in a row with about 5:30- 6:00 left in the game. I said to myself, this kid might have just won the game for us.

 

I hope he can continue to improve, and keep getting good game time like he is. This guy is hopefully going to be awesome in the future for the Wings.

The Griffins have posted a set of photos from Game 6 and the celebration that followed:

 

edit: I didn't realize it would create a slideshow. So there's that.

Rumor has it that Blashill will interview for the Stars' opening.

 

 

Oh please tell me that's a joke.  Good Grief...  They finally get GR on the same page and now one of the people in charge (Nill) goes to Dallas and will try to steal away the coach (Blashill) too?  F'n Dallas...

Blashill is expecting to be with the Griffins next year.  To that I say, thank god.  He is the best coach Grand Rapids has had in years.  I fully expect our prospects to be better so long as we have a good coach and good developmental people such as Chelios, Maltby, Draper, and Osgood at the helm.

I'd watch the Griffs for a sweet video tomorrow...
 
Meanwhile, here is one that I didn't see posted here from 4 days ago....
 

Seriously...Blashill has to be trying to mock Babcock. At one point in this video, when he's talking, there's no distinguishing between the two.

Sheahan
Mrazek
Jurco
Ferraro

Sheahan and Jurco are not ready. I fully expect both of them to spend all next year in GR...with maybe an injury call up aside. Jurco needs to dominate the AHL like Nyquist did this year before he gets the call. Sheahan should be left downthere until he develops a better offensive game too. We have a whole teams worth of bottom six guys...we need Sheahan to put up points.

Unless your trying to say that they will be eventual NHLer's. I expect Pulkkinen to play in the NHL. Lashoff would be included too.

Sheahan and Jurco are ahead of Pulkkinen. The Wings are so stocked right now that he may have to spend some in Toledo.

I agree that they ahead of Teemu. I think Sheahan will stick first then the other two will follow. I'm not sure Teemu goes to Toledo tho...he might not stay here if that's the case. I also don't see GR having six forwards ahead of him next year anyway. Ferraro, Jurco, Jarnkrok, snd Glendening are probably top six guys but it gets shifty after that. I think Tvrdon will be the winger sent to Toledo.
