Is a trade brewing?? It wouldn't seem that the roster space was available for all these guys.

 

UPDATE: The ‪#‎RedWings‬ have called up Cory Emmerton, Riley Sheahan, Teemu Pulkkinen, and Adam Almquist from the Grand Rapids Griffins.

I mentioned this in the other thread. From KK.

 

 

This is interesting, per the Red Wings' PR department. The Grand Rapids Griffins are holding a tripleheader this weekend and the Red Wings resume practicing at Joe Louis Arena today at 2 PM, and they'll resume their NHL season with games in Montreal on the 26th and in Ottawa on the 27th. Will some of these warm bodies be with them, or is this just maximizing-LTIR-spending stuff while augmenting the practice squad?

 

Seems to just be bodies for practice till Olympians return.

Sounds reasonable. With 10 guys away and Franzen injured they'd be pretty short-staffed.

That seems weird to me, but who knows.

Why else would they do it today? Other then the fact that they resume practice at 2pm and are short many guys. 


Otherwise I would think they would wait.

You can't trade during the Olympic break, there is a roster freeze.

I saw Pulkkinen play last month here (TX Stars v Griffins) and he is quite impressive.  My newest favorite Finn.  

 

Almquist was penalty magnet, but promptly would make up for it next shift.  I love Sheahan, but Emmerton... sorry, not so much.

Nice. His stats are pretty good too.. especially for his first full year in GR.

No, but you certainly can get guys into trade-able shape by the end of the hiatus, which is the 23rd - a scant 4 days away.

I don't know why they would so it, so I take the public statement at face value. 

However, I'm not a Hockey GM either. Who's to say that there is not a super sneaky secret plan at work?

I've been meaning to mention Pulkkinen for the past few days but I keep forgetting. More specifically: I'd like to see him up next season, if possible.


But yeah, there's probably nothing much to this.

they wouldn't call them up for a trade, they would just trade them, unless to showcase them, but then that begs the question, why call up emmerton he won't magically be better this time. It is just for practice purposes, and to get some of these guys some one on one time with guys like Datsyuk, and all the others not at the olympics.

Made all the more impressive by the fact that the general manager is on the other side of the globe. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

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

Says who? That's a KH body double. He's sent to do public appearances in scary places so that the real KH is never in danger.

 

Either that or Russia has internet - maybe even 56k dialup access. ROL - Russia OnLine.
