In Topic: Sproul and Ouellet recalled from Grand Rapids

14 April 2014 - 12:32 PM

I thought Sproul played the better game, but Ouellet was very solid, aside from one miscue when he decided to step up at centre that led to a 2 on 1 for the Blues. Besides that, he was pretty invisible like Dabura said. 

 

I was really really impressed with Sproul I have to say. Threw his body around - absolutely nailed Derek Roy into the boards at one point, no fear in jumping up into the rush, willing to unleash the slapper from the point and skates well. Got me rather excited. 

 

Actually that was Sproul that stepped up in the neutral zone and let the Blues blow by for a 2 on 1.  It was a glaring mistake, but it showed aggression and confidence.  Other than that, he looked good, and his shot looks really heavy.

 

Oulette was in good position and didn't seem to stand out at all.  He made a quick heads up play in the D-zone, where the puck came to him and he one-timed a pass up-ice to break Tatar or Nyquist on a breakaway.  Very heads up play.  Oulette looks like a mistake free defensive defenceman, but also capable of rushing the puck up ice.  

 

Sproul really shines in the O-zone with that huge shot, and big body in the D-zone.  Both are good skaters.

If there was no clock on the screen you would still know it was the third period with how terrible the Wings are defensively.

 

It really is noticible, so many points lost in the 3rd. Always playing in their own end.

What happened to Ericsson?  When was he hurt, beginning of the 3rd? Did it look bad?

I will be happy if we give up a 3rd or worse.  I don't think this trade involves any prospects.

 

This is pure speculation on my part.  Anything better than a 3rd, and it's a bad trade for us.
