In Topic: Over/Under for Larkin's time as a Red Wing in 15/16

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.

So apparently Holland said they're looking at a short list of head coach candidates right now, specifically mentioning Blashill and Bylsma. Pretty much what most of us here figured.

I don't mind that Babs left, but it's sad to see him go back on his word. He's mentioned that money wasn't really a factor (complete BS), and that whatever team he goes to has to have a plan to win (no freaking way Toronto has that, especially with how toxic that locker room is). Oh well, Blashill it is. And really, Bashill coached our younger guys and know them quite well, so the transition should work out good IMO.
