Some of the LGW members will like this:

 

Things got a bit interesting when I saw something I've never seen at development camp before... A fight. Nick Jensen had Tyler Bertuzzi tied up to the side of the net during the cross ice drills and Little Bertuzzi didn't like it, so he crosschecked Jensen in the back with more aggression than was necessary, and sent him down on top of the goalie (Eskelinen) who was to my right. The next time their lines were up for the cross ice drill, Tyler went after Jensen again, this time they tussled a little bit near the other goalie (Patterson) who was to my left, and Tyler almost knocked Nick's helmet off. Nick had some choice words for him and they separated. It was obvious there was still tension between them though, and about thirty seconds later they came together near center ice, dropped the gloves, threw punches, and had it out. The coaches let the players go until the fight was over. Jensen got the worst of it, but I'd say no real physical damage was done. I probably wouldn't put those two next to each other at dinner right away though. Jensen got the worst of the fight, and did go off the ice for medical attention.

Happens every year, I think.  I mean, if your role is be a fighter or enforcer, you have to showcase that at camp.

Little Tuzzi is a firecracker!  Guess Holland taking him with his bonus 2nd round pick isn't so bad now in everyone's favorite word...."hindsight".  They'll be buddies in a couple years and look back and laugh at it.  Competition is fierce is seems and that's a good thing.  Now lets all imagine Tuzzi Jr on a line with Callahan......nice.


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

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

Sounds like the nephtuzzi has some sandpaper to him. Love it! Hopefully he's also got some hockey skills to back it up--would love to see him annoying the s*** out of the other teams in a few years.

Edit: and hopefully he'll be the only Bertuzzi on the team at that time.

If he is half the player Todd was before the Moore incident he will be a very good NHLer!

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

That's what I needed to know. 

 

Thank you.

 

His numbers in the WCHA (old) were pretty good. 

 

He's an overlooked pick that I'm keeping my eye on IF he makes GR.

After today's scrimmage they interviewed Babcock and he said he liked what he saw, but that "other than Mantha, most the players had moments where they looked like prospects." Implying that Mantha never looked like a prospect out there. Really good to hear cause he will only improve. Maybe the kid wasn't so far off when he said he wants to make this team this year or next year.

Oh man. That would be awesome if Mantha made the team. Maybe he could be like Detroit's Saad.

saad never scored 50. Maltby did though :) I hope he is going to be  a mix between Brendan and Hull.


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Can't see that happening to be honest, but Babcock obviously loves the kid so maybe he could get a call-up as soon as this coming season?
