I'm bummed, the Griffins could have used that slapper tonight on their PP.  The only time I get to see them live this year and all the kids are in Detroit!

That's sad, he doesn't even get control of the thermostat.

Man, I don’t think the Wings have had a guy that can shoot like that since Hossa. Maybe even Hull. 

 

I’d almost lost hope in him based on his stats from his last year in Finland and late last year in GRs (he barely played). But he’s really turning it on. It’s awesome.  

 

I mean, I know he was supposed to have a good shot, but it looks that much better when that shot goes in 26 times.

I cannot really remember the last time we scored using the slapshot just after entering the O zone. And I also remember those good old times when Lapoint, Shanahan, Yzerman, Fedorov, McCarty were doing it.


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Alfie's slapper has looked really good at time this year, but yea would love to see Pulkkinen unleash it tonight. Cannot wait. Plus the Oilers got spanked last night so that may help…..

And the Oil are the team most likely to give the time and space ( like in the video-holy freedom) to shoot slappers all day.

Great Videos.

 

In the Holy sniper the first goal reminds me of the Yzerman's 1996 double OT goal. just a beauty.  

 

The rest of the videos remind me Brett Hull. hopefully he can be as sneaky. In the minors you get that much time to shoot the puck.... Not in the bigs. those shooting lanes close up quickly.

 

Here's rooting for ya kid!

Sounds like Babs is ready to promote the kid to a more substantial role if Pulkinen shows he can handle it.

Teemu, Jr?  Hope he's as good as the old man in Anaheim.  ;)

Unfortunately, I missed the game last night. How did he look in his debut?

Laid the best pure hip-check I've seen all season. Had a couple insane slappers that didn't find much. All in all, pretty good 1st NHL game.

He had a good wrap around attempt that he almost scored on. He was trying to hard to get his shot off. He needs to let the play come to him.

Exactly this. He's obviously got the potential with that shot, and I love how he indicated where he wanted a pass to go on the PP where he finally got to rip some. He definitely looked like someone playing his first game though, anxious to show what he could do.

Good. Play him asap. In fact, once Mantha, AA, and nastisauk's seasons are over in junior, bring them to Detroit for a bit as well.

 

Nice try, Anthony.

This has probably been posted:

 

Pulkkinen's "stall"

 

I love that the "To whom much is given..." sign is visible. lolz.

 

Also, I didn't watch last night's game. Is it true that he threw an old-school open-ice hip check...on the power play?? If so, he deserves a spot on the roster next season just for that.


EDIT: Just saw the video. That was awesome.
