Skeletor approves of Calle and thinks he'll probably see NHL ice this season.

 

Where is this comparison to Z coming from?
 

 

“I’m not going to make any promises,” Trotz said. “But what I saw of him, and if he continues to play like he has been, I would say that from my standpoint, if we had some injuries I would like to take a look at him.”

 

The fact that the Predators were able to get a player some have compared to Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg was seen as a steal in many NHL circles.

“I like to think of him like a Zetterberg. He wants to have the puck, he wants to hold onto the puck all the time, he makes plays (for his linemates) and he knows how to score himself.” — Red Wings scout Ari Vuori (June 2010)

 

“He has great hockey sense, very tenacious, a lot of (Henrik) Zetterberg-type qualities. He’s strong on the puck, never gives up on the puck.” — Red Wings assistant GM Jim Nill (May 2012, MLive.com)

 

The Red Wings have likened Jarnkrok to Henrik Zetterberg and the potential is there for the hard-working, highly-skilled center to emerge as a front-line NHL talent over the next five years. -- RWC

Yeah. Red Wing peeps like to make these comparisons. 

 

Jurco’s been compared to Hossa.

Backman to Edler

Pulkinnen to Hull

Mantha to Vanek

 

And on and on. To tired and lazy to post links. 

 

It’s like music. When a band gets compared to Led Zeppelin, it doesn’t mean they are as good. 

 

Jarnkrok will be nowhere as good as Z.

Oh I'm with ya.  I was just showing where those comparisons were from.  

 

I could see Jarnkrok develop into a lesser version of Ryan O'Reilly.

I can appreciate the comparisons about so-and-so is the next blah-blah. I think it easily allows people to conjure up an idea of what a player may be like without getting technical since we're not all NHL scouts. 

 

Do they all work out? No. 

 

Interesting to read? Yes, mostly.

how many "next Gretzky's" have we heard about too?

 

I do believe Jarnkrok will have a good career, but there is no need to compare him to anyone. For Nashville's sake, I hope it works out because they traded their franchise player for him.

Wow leftwinger I never thought of it that way. Leggy was the face of that team and they traded him for a pick and a prospect. They had better hope to hell that pans out or fans will not be happy. I can only imagine if we'd have traded yzerman for a pick and prospect and they would have been a bust we'd still be talking about it.

Weber and Rinne are the faces of the team.

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!

Not that it matters much, but I don't think he's wrong in saying that Legwand was the face of their team.  He was with them for 15 years, leads their team in games played, goals, assists, points, and who was an alternate captain.  Certainly more so than Rhinne, and probably on par with Weber.  I sort of see it as being like Dats and Z, neither really being "the face" over the other.  But that's just my opinion on the matter.

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."

They had to. Couldn't re-sign him.

If you recall, Scotty Bowman had Yzerman traded in 1994 to Ottawa....for Alexi Yashin! Yes, we'd still be talking about that one! Thank Goodness for Marian Ilitch!

I do remember the heavy trade rumors early 90's which is why I brought it up.

Nashville Predators Recall Calle Jarnkrok From Milwaukee

 

 

 

Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Calle Jarnkrok (KAHL-leh YAHRN-krohk) from Milwaukee (AHL). He is expected to make his NHL debut tomorrow night when the Predators take on the Calgary Flames (8 p.m. CT, FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game).

"When the cast comes off, I ask my doctor, 'Have I recovered so I can play the violin?' The doctor says, 'But of course you can play the violin.' I say, 'Wow, this is great. Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand

Weber and Rinne are the faces of the team.

David Legwand was our first ever draft pick in 1998,he may have  not been the face of the team,but he was on the preds longer then both rinne and weber,That means something

 

 

Now, Our Power Play is suffering without him
