Just I finished watching it , kids awesome ... Redwings future is beyond stacked full of potential


Just because he is scoring in juniors doesn't mean he will make it in the NHL. Let's see how he's does with the big boys first.

I still think he is a 4th liner at best.

Its just like mantha yes I think he will be good. But I don't think he should make the jump to nhl to start the year. Maybe like halfway through but not to start. I wanna see how he does in the ahl(and I can watch him a lot live then to!).

Nothing he said was inaccurate. 

 

He said the Wings future was full of potential...Not full of NHL 1st liners.

 

Just because they have potential doesn't mean they will all reach it.

 

Right now the Wings prospect pool is ranked 3rd in the NHL, not bad for a team that has picked in the top 20 only twice in the past couple decades.

I just think comparing mantha nyquist and others potential(high) to bertuzzi(low) is kind of insulting. They're not in the same sentence. IMO

Hey, if Mantha thinks he can get the AHL scoring title next year, then by all means....leave him down there to cook another season lol.

Yan Golubovsky had pretty high potential too. Then our 10th round pick from that year turned out to be way better and the best net front forward in the league. I think it's insulting to write off a player just bc u have some perceived idea that his potential is lower bc he's not Daigle hyped.

He did something most people don't predict. When someone is a horrible skater and shooter you don't think much of them. Who would predict he would go on to be able to handle such abuse and screenig ability and a talent to direct shots.

It's called LUCK and heart. Two things that no one can measure. The wings have been fortunate in both ends.

But with that said I still have the believe he will not amount to much. Because he doesn't have the natural talent. But maybe he has the heart.

Bertuzzi-Glendening-Callahan..just a fantasy, I know, but that would be a Troll line

Looks like London has been "Out-Huntered" by Guelph.

Some of Guelph's sportswriters think that Bertuzzi is the MVP of that team despite not being near the lead in scoring.

 

He missed a large portion of the year, both regular season and playoffs with injuries but still manages to put up PPG numbers playing on the 3rd and 4th lines.

 

He also gets no PP time and kills penalties, even taking faceoffs in certain situations.

 

Do I think he'll be as good as Mantha...No, 

but could he? yes.

I think Val D'or has to win tonight to be in the semi-final. It's 2-2 going into the 3rd.

 

...now it's 3-3 going into OT

No matter what they will have a chance to get into the Semi-final game. If London loses tomorrow then Val d'Or automatically plays Edmonton in the semi-final.

 

If London wins then they play in a tie-breaker game vs the loser of tonight's game, with the winner of that game playing in the semi-final vs the winner of tonights game.

 

Given that Gelinas (Val d'Or's best defenceman) is injured I think they're in far better shape winning this game and getting an extra day of rest.

Yeah, I just figured it out from the intermission discussion. I was wondering why there wasn't much urgency in the commentary

If Guelph win tonight, is it then a straight Guelph v Val D'or final?

I'm pretty sure Val D'or has to play the semi-final Friday, against Edmonton again...I think.

From Memorial Cup 2014:

 

A Knights' win forces a Tiebreaker game against the Oil Kings on Thursday, whereas a Storm win secures the WHL champions a place in the Semi-Final in a rematch against the Foreurs on Friday.

Bertuzzi being helped off the ice after a knee on knee. The classy London fans boo him.

 

What is with all the knee on knee hits in the Memorial Cup? It's nuts.

That's crazy. I know players fake injuries at certain times to get a timeout(nfl a lot) but IMO it's never good to boo. Cause you just don't know if it is a legit injury or not.

Hope he is all right.

Going into the tournament it was all about Mantha, but it's become all about Bertuzzi. 5 goals to lead the tournament and a physical pest on every shift, can't wait for this guy to make the Wings roster in a couple years.
