At the rate our players are dropping like flies, it would be awesome if he actually played in the NHL this year. I don't know if he's ready but players do sometimes jump right in.

Even Wings scouts saying he could be a wing next year.

Like, holy s***, that young number 1 Scorer could be here in august. Not only are we, but management is real high on him.

Yzerman 2.0?

#Redwings Jiří Fischer visited Anthony Mantha a few weeks ago and told him he will be coming up to Detroit once his #LHJMQ playoffs are over

If they plan on having Mantha up full-time next season I think we see some trades happen. We would have an overloaded forward group as we stand now. Might be time to pull the trigger on a dman trade with some other assets (Abby/Helm+picks, prospects) if he is ready to take a spot in the big club. 

 

C's - Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Weiss, Legwand?, Helm, Sheahan, Andersson, (Glendening?)

W's - Franzen, Alfie?, Tatar, Nyquist, Abby, Miller, (Jurco?), (Mantha?), (Ferraro/Callahan?)

 

Lots of goodies in the forwards group. I think Holland wants to assess Mantha's readiness before moving some players for a Dman in the offseason.

 

Edit: Pulkkinen is also pushing for a spot soon too. So much talent with so few roster spots.

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

My guess is they'll see what Mantha can do in the NHL before they make any trades

If he is coming up to the wings, it will be to watch games.  He won't be playing in them.  He has a rather large learning curve ahead of him.  I would rather see them take their time rather than try to rush him and destroy his confidence.

Maybe he can play in the NHL ? We won't know if we don't play him.

That's not the Red Wings way. If they feel he isn't ready they won't play him. However there are those special players out there that can transition immediately.

That's true but the Wings haven't had a prospect like Mantha since Datsyuk and Zetterberg, both of whom made the jump straight to the NHL. I'm not sure if their respective leagues were equivalent to the juniors or not, but it's entirely possible that Mantha might be an exception Holland is willing to make.

Could he be much worse than Bertuzzi? At least he can skate.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

He may play. With the way our guys are dropping like flies....... Abby and Sheahan both played a game or 2 after their college seasons ended.

These are his stats after tonight's game. He could finish the season a goal per game.

 

56+62 = 118 points in 56 games

No ones really worried about Bertuzzi's confidence.

I know Maltby scored 50 goals in the CHL. But a goal a game is something to be excited about
