Don't worry, I'm sure the reason Sammy might play ahead of Tatar and Nyquist in game 1 is so Sammy can get a boo-boo that will keep him on LTIR for a month or two.  That will then free up space for actual contributing hockey players.

This team makes no damn sense.  Evidently Tick Tock Babble Co. is not interested in icing the best team possible.

 

"Tie goes to the veteran, not the kid."  Bull-ish.

Everything is as clear as mud at the moment.

Cory Emmerton still on Wings' 23-man roster. Holland said earlier he was being sent to GR. Maybe they're able to squeeze him under the cap.

I highly, highly, highly, highly, highly, highly, highly doubt Babs is seriously considering bumping Tatar up to the 1st line. But anything's possible, I guess.

Yeah, maybe wishful thinking on my part, but I still don't think he'll be a scratch Wednesday even if Tootoo is healthy. Babcock hasn't shown a desire to give tootoo ice time and he'll be coming in cold.

Normally I wouldn't hope for an injury to a player, but Samuelsson has reached freeloader status. I can't respect that. I'm sure he'd be perfectly content to simply sit at home and collect a paycheck anyhow.

We all knew it was going to come down to this when they re-signed Cleary and didn't buy out / waive / trade some of the rust. But fear not, Red Wing Fans! The Sammy Experiment should be over by the end of the week and he will be in the place he loves best, ice packs, Sportscreme, theraputic massages, and a totally undeserved paycheck.

I don't really have much to say, other than the look of that bottom six screams, "We've made mistakes".

Also Ouellet has been recalled

 

Looks like the Opening Night Roster is:

 

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Abdelkader

Franzen-Weiss-Alfredsson

Cleary-Andersson-Bertuzzi (I might be in the minority, but I like that third line)

Miller-Emmerton-Samuelsson

Tatar

 

Kronwall-Ericsson

Kindl-DeKeyser

Quincey-Smith

Lashoff-Ouellet

 

Howard

Coreau

It just doesn't make sense to me that we had the chance to field our best possible team and we chose not to.  With Eaves on LTIR we could have kept Nyquist up.  Sure he gets his 2 games and can't go down, so what? He should never have been sent down in their first place. 

 

Why keep Emdog up? Is he really that expendable? Once Helm or Eaves come back won't he have to go through waivers all over again?

 

Someone call Jeff Gillooly to get a lead pipe ready for Sammy.

Coreau?  Makes me question if this is the actual lineup that we'll see Wednesday.

Ya I don't see why Xavier would be up either. We have 7 healthy d-men

They are calling up only guys who don't have to worry about waivers (now or in the immediate future) but I don't see why Coreau is up over Mrazek or why we need 8 d-men.

 

There's got to be something more to all of this.  Something deep.  Sinister.  Pure "evil genius at work" kind of thing.  Someone out there is planning to take over the universe, and it just might be Holland.

 

Or maybe he just wants a bit more of a look-see at these guys and they have the lowest cap hits.

If that were the case, he'd have a combo of like Glendening (575K) and Nedomlel (612K). Coreau and Ouellet are making 925K and 894K, respectively. I'm pretty confused, personally.

Emmerton is in GR, also I would be a fan of waving Lashoff in favour of Xavier

Not anymore.

 

Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 1h

Ken Holland said Cory Emmerton is able to start the season with Wings because Patrick Eaves was placed on long term IR

 

Helene St. James @HeleneStJames 1h

Cory Emmerton not to GR after all, part of Red Wings opening day roster, in all likelihood will center 4th line opening night.
