Red Wings have called up defenseman Alexey Marchenkov from Grand Rapids, Ken Holland said.

 

 

Holland wouldn't reveal which, if any, defenseman is injured. We'll find out in practice today.

 

 

Correction, meant Marchenko, not Marchenkov.

Well I'm interested in seeing this kid because I don't know anything about him.  But why not Sproul.  He's been conspicuously passed over it seems to me.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I think the Wings' front office just wants to get a look at as many prospects as it can at the NHL level. It's not really anything against Sproul.

I don't think it's anything against him, they just haven't seen him yet and as I understood it he and Ouellet were the top two in the pecking order.  I'm wondering if he's injured or something.

maybe Kenny has done a deal involving one of our D?

Anyway Sproul is more a Top 4 offensive prospect, Alexey

is a5-7 type at present. Im really pleased for him , of course

it could have something to do with Alexey already had iced 

nearly 100 times in the KHL and has the exp over Sproul.

Looks like the injured d-man is Danny D.  Lower body injury.  Really interested to see what Alexey can bring to the table.

Sproul has made some bone headed defensive mistakes lately by all accounts.  Heard a lot of good things about Marchenko though.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I hate Quincey Sammy and Cleary, one of them is to blame for this, probably Quincey

This season is officially on cruise control for me. These injuries have become something out of a science fiction book.

with Big E out and now DD for a spell, will Kenny look for some vet help in the market place or hope we can get by with what is in effect 1 top two D and 5/6 

4-7 rate D, this coming string of away games could make or break our playoff

run.

I think Holland admitted he was looking for a defenseman, but in this market I just don't see how a trade can be worked out. I wonder why they called Marchenko up? Seems it'd be better to give a few prospects as many games as possible rather than giving as many prospects one or two games apiece. What is he going to show in one game anyway? Especially since he's not atop the depth chart.

Maybe Sproul mouthed off and is now getting the Tatar treatment.

Excited to see what he can do but not at the expense of DD injury. Too bad. I look forward to focussing in on Marchenko Saturday night. What number will he wear?


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Marchenko? Is that the kid who in 2010 was ranked 12th overall among European skaters, but told teams he only wanted to play in Russia and went undrafted? The same kid who the very next year told the Wings he would play for them if they took him, and the Wings drafted him with their very last pick in the 9th round?

He's probs just a plug. 9th round picks never pan out...

That's interesting.  The coverage of him that I saw pointed to the fact that he went undrafted in 2010 because he had just had his spleen removed & there were questions about whether he would ever play hockey again.

Midterm 2010 draft rankings have Marchenko at 18th European skater. Interesting that nobody took a late round flier on him that year even if the spleen thing is true. We took him in 2011. Seems legit.
