😀 Pure talk, but I will say that about 2 years ago I said the Wings will get Miller to play with his brother and end his career at home backing up Mrazek. It'd be too funny if it happens!

I like to go back to the Bobby Ryan trade. If Holland had the balls to deal Jarnkrok back then and a Nyquist with high end potential we'd of had and still have a top line scorer on this team. He may be declining a bit, but he is still better than most of our wingers now.

I think Larkin slower down because he was forced to play in our enept system. At the beginning of the year he was a wild hare and just played hard to make the team. But as he slowly learned the system, his stats suffered.

The Wings didn't like Ryan's complete level in the playoffs. They decided he wasn't worth a trade because he wouldn't bring it when games matter most.

I'll have to disagree, but of course theres no way of knowing because its all speculation
Larkin, prior to the end of the past season, had never played 82 games in a season before. NCAA teams play roughly 40 games a year, at a decreased level of intensity. Add the travel schedule and pressure of the NHL, and its pretty easy to get winded at the halfway point of the season. I fully expect Larkin to be more consistent this season. 

Many young players hit a wall in their first season in all four major sports. It is known.

To be honest, I was more impressed with AA than Larkin in the 2nd half of the season. His movements are extremely fluid and he seems to think of what he's going to do way ahead of time. Almost all his goals this year were "right place at the right time" or using his speed to his advantage and letting D-man bite. 

Those eyebrows.

I'm so confused. The Wings do or do not promote kids to the big club? Jurco was rushed but Larkin was not? So much doublespeak I feel like I'm watching a political debate.

Waaah is a dick and an emotional baby. He burned the bridge of a club that reveres him ... again.
