What would it take to scoop this kid outta Nashville? Was watching their game last night and forgot he was even there.
Nashville top four is Weber, Josi, Del Zotto, Jones. Where does that leave Ellis?
Very offensive minded in junior. Right handed shot, PP guy. Younger Rafalski type?
Smith Lashoff/stay at home vet?
Past his slapshot, he doesn't have much to offer. Not a particularly good passer, which Rafs very much was and he's not good defensively which is why it took him so long to break into Nashville and why when you watch Preds games you more or less forget he's on the team. Very sheltered ice time.
Like I said in the last GDT, the Wings are like an Army without a General without Z. The leaders we have who can step up are Kronner, Alfie, Mule and Legwand. Mule and Legwand have been busting ass, Kronner has ben on/off on/off lately and Alfredsson has been a ghost since the Olympics. With Dats out also, it adds a lot more burden on those 4 guys, with Z out, we don't have that guy that throws the team on his back to make the post season. Mule can try, but he's not the leader Z is. Z turns it up 6 gears when it's on the line.
