I agree LeftWinger. Blashill will absolutely use him correctly, something Babcock never did. And that's exactly where I'd like him to slot in, on the 3rd line with Sheahan and Jurco and on the left faceoff dot on the power-play. He will be a huge threat if he is used the same way Blash used him in Grand Rapids, but I think we all know that Calder candidate is out of the question...
Kip, you've watched him play? I haven't... Is he any good? I heard he has quite the shot...

That little one trick that you speak of... He can do that better than anyone in the Red Wings organization. You don't trade that away unless you're getting something similar in return (which we wouldn't). I'm not saying, he's going to score 40 goals every year and he is irreplaceable... What I am saying is that it's ridiculous that he is getting written off after 34 games in which he was very poorly utilized, knowing that we have a new coach that actually used him properly and he produced... a lot...


Except when he completely disappeared against Utica. Until he shows he has an answer when being well defended against, I'm not sold.

Like I said. I hope I'm wrong. And by no means do I think he sucks. I just think some people on these forums are pumping his tires far too much. I see guys like Jurco becoming more important to this team than pulk can ever dream of becoming.

Exactly.  He sucks.  Dump him while some people are still gullible enough to think he'll be any good. 


His trade value is higher now than it likely ever will be.

This kid in the AHL is awesome look at his numbers there oh wait he played a few games in the NHL and didn't dominate he sucks dump him right now


While I don't think he sucks by any means, I am unconvinced his success will ever translate to the nhl. I hope I'm wrong. I just don't see it.

Well the rangers are shopping Yandle. However seeing as they gave up so much just to put him on the third pair, I doubt we will give up whatever they are asking


We also don't need Yandle now that we have Green.

Stewart, Semin, Franson, a big pile of nope. Let them be someone else's problem. 

 

As much as I'd love to see a trade for another top 4 dman (to replace Ericsson), I only see players getting moved for picks/prospects at this point. Unless a GM out there happens to be shopping someone Holland wants. But taking up more roster spots for the players left on the market makes no sense. The team has enough depth to wait for the right players.
