A second team AHL all-star who couldn't crack Phoenix's lineup for more than 7 games. I have no feelings about this guy, nice for GR, I guess.

Anyone else think a trade involving GR prospects are coming? We've signed a lot of these guys lately.

We usually do every summer. We released a few Grand Rapids players a few days ago, and these are just their replacements. Glendening-style signings that are destined for the AHL unless they surprise management and fill a much needed role. Which I don't think Porter or Miele do.

He actually had really good college and AHL numbers. Maybe the Wings think they can capitalize where the Coyotes couldn't.

Are we going for the Calder Cup??

Since Blashill took over down there, the answer is yes. That hasn't been the case with our coaches in the past who haven't done much with the talent they have been given. A strong farm system is just as valuable as a strong NHL team.

No, they are filling holes on the roster, especially at C, where the Griffs were quite weak following the departure of Emmerton, Jarnkrok etc.

Miele is a ppg AHL player, I expect he'll be the 1C with Mantha/Jurco and Pulkinen on his wings

Given the departure of Emmerton and Jarnkrok...I would have thought Janmark would play in GR. He signed to play in Sweden though...

Saw this guy at Yotes training camp, not that impressive... I don't see him cracking the Wings roster unless Blash can work some magic (which is possible).

If anything, this guy will be a force on a very strong Griffins team. Especially if Jurco is playing with the big club.
