DeKe for sure. He does seem to have a good head on his shoulders.
I honestly don't know enough about the others to be sure. The few that have been up have only been up for a few games, or don't appear to have what it takes yet.
They're still young. Some won't end up here, of course, and others will mature well.
There really aren't ones like Hank and Pavel who we knew would be the next generation of leaders, but at this point, I'm not worried. As Kip said, there are enough in between to pass the torch to before these guys get it.
The only one I'm really out-of-my-mind high on is Dekeyser. Now that I've said that, he'll probably have a bad sophomore season next year (I'm not counting last year as a season for this purpose) and he'll be like Ericsson where we have to be patient as everyone dumps on him.
I'm interested to know what the people who follow the Griffins think.
Money on the board! Current total: $5
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James
