The week before the NHL playoffs started last year Andersson, Nyquist, Dekeyser and Lashoff were sent down to GR in a paper transaction allowing them to be used to the AHL playoffs after the wings elimination. My understanding is that Mantha doesn't fall in to this category as he has played in the CHL and will be able to join the Griffins after game 7 with Val D'or

 

Ah, wasn't aware of the "paper transaction", that sums it up. 

 

Thanks for the info.

Why is the Hockey media saying Mantha could join the Griffins for the remainder of the playoffs?

 

I don't know enough to know either way. but you'd think they would know right?

 

Why aren't they mentioning any paper transaction? If you search "Mantha AHL" on twitter all you see are reputable hockey analysts saying Mantha will join Grand Rapids if Val D'Or is eliminated.

 

I'm not saying anyone in this thread is wrong because I don't know. 

What I am saying is how does some anonymous poster on a message board know this rule but people whose livelihoods depend on knowing hockey inside and out don't? I'm confused damnit! :lol:

I asked ryan Kennedy of the hockey news and Kahn and both said he's eligible to play once he's eliminated

Mantha just scored the game winner with 52 seconds left for the QMJHL Championship! No GR for him, headed to the Memorial Cup!

 

Edit: Also finished the playoffs with 24 G in 24 GP meaning he finished the whole year 81 G in 81 GP.

Wild.

 

Above, I posted that the game was over and that Val d’or won 3-1. 

 

But the game wasn’t over, so I edited my post to say “nm”.

 

Baie-Comeau come back and score 2 more (3 total in the 3rd).

 

Then Mantha goes to work.

 

Amazing!!!

Mantha is money. GR still very alive in there playoffs, 2 prospects in the Memorial Cup, a good time to be a wings fan even with the big club at home.

"If Anthony Mantha is ready to play in the National Hockey League next year and he beats somebody out, he'll play in the National Hockey League," Wings general manager Ken Holland said after the Wings' playoff run ended. "But if he can't beat anybody out, we're not just going to put him on the team because he had a great junior career. I don't believe in entitlement, I don't believe in handing people jobs. I believe you come in and you take somebody's job."

 

I wish he'd just come out and say he doesn't trust anyone under the age of 30.

So by "come in and take somebody's job" he means "hope someone gets injured so we can actually get a look at you and give you a shot"?

Mantha scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory over the London Knights to take a 1-0 series lead.

Well that's settled. Too bad, was hoping to see what he could do with the Griffs.

I have a feeling he'll have plenty of time to show what he can do with the Griffs.

Hope that he will crack the Wings roster next season. He seems to be mature enough this season.

But Holland can resign Cleary and Samuelsson, so I'll try to be patient

Yes. If Mantha doesn't make the team out of camp it's because Holland has offered contracts to Bertuzzi, Cleary, Sammy, Jason Williams, Maltby, and Hartigan.

It'll have nothing to do with Mantha not quite being ready.

Holy s*** this rhetoric is getting old.
