Sheahan is 22, Helm is 27, Andersson is 25, Nyquist has played C, he's 24.  Glendening is 24.  Nestrasil is coming on at GR, he's 23.  Janmark was drafted last year and he's further along than most 2013 drafts because he's played in Sweden's elite league and he's 21.   Athanasiou has played C before, he's 19.    We have young centers in the system.

Ya thank god for all the injuries cause sheahan was projected to be a bottom 6 but he's proven he might have the potential to be a top 6 ... Always loved helm he's the type of guy you need in the playoffs .... Andersson and glendening are expendable , wouldn't be surprised if they didn't have a longterm future here

Nestrasil has had a not streak in the ahl but so did janrkrok so i won't get too excited about that just yet

Jarnkrok was also in the same position as janmark in the swedish elite league and I'm very hopeful he will be great but again who knows

Looks pretty clear to me nyquist is a lock to play wing now just like Franzen who once was a center as well and I don't hold much hope for athanasiou who had this great junior season in his last year of juniors

My whole point with all that is no future longterm lock at center in the top 6 under 25 except sheahan and thank god for that

cuz there's no game tonight


What no ones watching the Carolina Ottawa game? Monday night raw? How I met your mother finale? Lmao

This so called 'blockbuster trade' for defenseman. 1) not going to happen. 2) the guys that are 'available' because the market is so thin will only be acquired by giving an arm and a leg. I'm sorry, but we've got Almquist, Marchenko, Sproul and possibly Ouellet who could step in next year. With continued improvement from DeKeyser and hopefully Smith, I think we'll be fine on the back end. Feel free to disagree with me though.


I hope it never happens ... I don't wanna give up what we'd have to give up to get that defensemen ... I like all those d you mentioned

The fact that Jarnkrok was highly rated means nothing.  Here are a couple older RWC prospect rankings.  
 
http://www.redwingsc...cated-top-spot/
 
Abdelkader, Leino, McCollum, Kindl, Smith top 5.
 
http://www.redwingsc...ip-on-top-spot/
 
Howard, Kindl, Abdelkader, Emmerton, Smith top 5.
 


http://www.redwingsc...all-still-king/


Of course not everyone pans out but would of liked jarnkrok to get trial before sending him packing

And wasn't leino playing in Finland ? Wasn't a prospect ....Howard's our number 1 and I like abdelkader he's the type of guy you need in the playoffs

The problem is that Järnkrok is a very offensive minded center, he'd have to be given a decent amount of ice time and with good players or he won't be effective. He's certainly not the type of defensively responsible centre that Babcock loves and also he's tiny, we need size.
 
He's also not a great PKer like Sheahan and Glendening.

From what I've ready everyone's always said how good a 2 way player he is and is defensively responsible... Might also be a reason he's up in Nashville and forsberg is still in milwaukee

 
ummm did you read the edit to my post where I provided the article where he admits himself that he was close to moving back home?

I can't read swedish so I'll have to take your word for it ... But I know he went on twitter and said all the rumors were false

Why won't this thread just die already



Embrace the thread lol ... Help it reach 100 pages

If you're counting on Jarnkrok to shadow Crosby you're going to get destroyed, that's why he isn't even considered for Miller, or Glendening's roles.

 

He could play in Andersson's spot that he's currently occupying, but at the time Calle was traded, Andersson was on the checking line which is the absolute worst place for Jarnkrok to play.

 

Emmerton wasn't even in the NHL at the time of the trade, he was only called up because another center went down. Had Jarnkrok not threatened to go back to Sweden necessitating the trade he would have got his NHL shot with the Wings right then.

 

And before anyone claims that the idea of him going back to Sweden was made up, he admitted it himself to Swedish media.

Headline translates to " I was close to moving home to Brynasgatan"

Since I am Swedish and can read that article and the tone of it I can tell you that you are grossly misrepresenting what he actually said. 

 

He said it wasn't going very well at for a while and there were thoughts about moving home but he also said that there was a big transition playing in the AHL and that every player wants to be in the NHL and it would feel weird to throw that away and move home after just one season.

 

Interestingly enough the quote from the headline isn't even in the original article, I assume it's an exaggeration just to get people to click the link for the article.

Where there's smoke there's fire.

 

The Wings aren't known for starting false rumors and there were reports for months leading up to the trade that he was unhappy in Grand Rapids.

 

Just how unhappy we'll never know, and while I don't believe the reports that he already had a deal in Sweden, I do believe if he had stayed in Grand Rapids and not gotten any NHL time he would have went home.

The problem with this (assuming he could not shadow an opponent, or could not step up his game in a new role) is you (or I) simply do not know, this is merely speculation and a lot of people all but written him off that no, he will never be a viable player here, without giving the kid a chance.  Without him coming up for a few games no one knows.  Just like no one knew about the other kids who were buried until the injuries gave them a chance. 

 

I should for the record state that I thought the trade for Legwand was necessary, and have no problems with it, but it seems like everyone wrote him off without a proper test drive.
