per the Red Wings twitter:

 

 

UPDATE: The #RedWings have assigned Cory Emmerton and Petr Mrazek to Grand Rapids.

Never been the biggest Emmerton fan. Just too unremarkable to sustain an NHL place at a club like the Wings.

I suppose this had to happen to make room for Tootoo.  I would also guess that this means that Monster is returning.


Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

I'm hoping Glendening gets a shot. He's fairly similar to Emmerton in terms of offensive skill set but grittier and has a physical edge. Just a more noticeable type of player for a 4th line/PK role.

No, not until the Wings get rid of a body or two.  These moves are all about Tootoo & Gustavsson being back soon plus Eaves should be cleared to play in the next couple of weeks. Nyquist won't be up any time soon imo.

  1. Bertuzzi skating with Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

  2. Weiss skating with Franzen and Abdelkader.

  3. Alfredsson skating on line with Andersson and Cleary.

     
  4. Jimmy Howard hit high with shot, leaves the ice.

Does it feel like they're punishing the wrong player by dropping Alfie to the 3rd & leaving Mule on the 2nd?

Emmerton didn't do himself any favors to be a guy that stays up by being completely invisible for the first 4 games.  Useless. 

 

Mrazek may as well go play in GR than sit on the bench with all the other players under 26 on the Wings.


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

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

Alf hasn't made me scream at the TV yet. Franzen on the other hand...

As useless as Franzen is on a scoring line, I fear he'd be even more useless on a checking/energy line.

 

I'm way past ready for him to be traded.

Does Emmerton have to go through waivers again?

Yes.  But they were both the s***s last game.  But if we're keeping track, Mule has 4 bad games, Alfie has 1.

1. meh

2. makes the second line worse

3. might get Alfie going

4. fuuuuuuuux

Disagree. He had a terrible game, but unless turning 41 makes you go brain dead, I don't think his age had much to do with it. His two mistakes were on the power play, standing still, at the blueline, and they were both mistakes of the mind, not the body.

Really, that last sequence with Alfredsson passing the puck offside then losing it for an empty netter didn't make you yell at your TV?
