And now for something completely different: some good news. Several Griffins are having very good seasons.

 

 

  • Gustav Nyquist: Gus is doing very well in a league in which he very clearly does not belong. He scores at a prolific rate and skates circles around the opposition. He's currently #5 in the league in points, and it goes without saying that he should be in the NHL.
  • Tomas Jurco: Jurco is demonstrating why he was so hyped as a prospect. He couples excellent speed and stickhandling with an excellent wrist shot and a willingness to use it. He currently leads the Griffins in goals (9) and shots on goal (42) in 16 games, and ranks 2nd in points. His offensive production ranks him at #10 in the league.
  • Teemu Pulkkinen: The concerns about Pulkkinen's ability to play the North American game seem to have been unfounded. His rookie season is going quite well so far. He's tied for second in goals (6) and is shooting plenty (36), being tied for 2nd in that category as well. He is third on the team with 13 points.
  • Ryan Sproul: Sproul's rookie season is going very well. His 12 points (including five goals) place him at #4 on the team in scoring, and he's amongst the league leaders in points by a first-year defenseman. He's also tied for the best +/- on the team (+9); this puts him in a tie for third overall in the league in that category.

     

     

Not bad.

I'd add Jarnkrok, he's playing well, his only flaw his he's really weak, especially his lower body and is easily knocked off the puck. If he can do like Z did and really get his lower body up to snuff, he could really be a great top-6 player.


Feuer und Wasser kommt nicht zusammen
Kann man nicht binden sind nicht verwandt
In Funken versunken steh ich in Flammen
und bin im Wasser verbrannt
Im Wasser verbrannt

I've been impressed with what I've seen from Marchenko. I wasn't sure he'd transition well, but he's looked good and he's putting up some points.

Either we have amazing scouts or Blashill is mini Bowman. Starting to think both.

Teemu and Alexy are very steady young players who are going to save the Wings $m's in the trade market. Teemu comes into his own on the pp and reminds me a little of old golden Brett. Alexy just ouzes calmness and rarely gets caught out of position. He could step into the 3rd pairing now and in time will be a solid 3/4 guy for the Wings blueline. Both are really in their first full season in the A and dont seem to be out of place at all.

 

Also they lead the Griffins in the +- stat with both having a +15.

"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop
"Make sure they don't leave the bench!" Reggie Dunlop.
