Saarijarvi had two assists in a 3-2 win.



I was at that game, so far he looks pretty decent. Good skater, definitely not afraid to take shots (only hesitated once in Overtime), broke up a few of Saginaw's offensive chances, played the point on the PP, and went 2nd in the shootout. Obviously one game isn't enough to figure out where he'll be going in the future, but he's definitely noticeable when he's on the ice, in a good way.

The Larkin situation reminds me of the Mantha talk from last season. Id be shocked if Larkin plays with the big club next year. I voted for less then 5 only because an injury might give him a shot. Other then DD who was the last prospect Holland rushed? Wings just don't do it.


Agreed. Even then, DD wasn't a prospect in the traditional sense. We happened to win the sweeps for signing him, plus he had 3 years of college hockey already.

Agreed. He played one year for U of M and made the jump to GR in the playoffs, not a lot of experience under his belt yet. That combined with the logjam of forwards wanting to make the jump/vying for a roster spot, I don't expect to see him for more than a couple games at the end of the season and only if we're locked in our spot already. Aside from that, we would either need to get decimated by injuries in order to see him, or he'd need to seriously impress in GR this year. Essentially he's fighting Bertuzzi, Mantha, Pulks, Ferraro, Callahan, and AA for call-up time with the Wings.

Was Crosby fired?

Oh no, it's just that Cooper holds that position in Tampa's organization :)
