Yes Tatar leads prospects with 13 points but then Mursak, Emmerton, Ritola, and Kindl are not far behind with 12 each,

I'd like to see a topic where you made a post wherein you did not indicate your desire to see the leading goalscorer off the top 6/team.

As for Maltby, he's an old vet on the last leg of a small dollar contract playing as the 13th forward. I'm not even sure what your issue there is.

He makes it quite apparent throughout the thread how uninformed he is about the Red Wings organization. The Red Wings have been using the patience with prospects and stock up with veterans philosophy for 20 years now, and they have been the most successful team in all of hockey and arguably all of sports in that time frame. So why change our philosophy?

Holmstrom and Maltby need to go. It's that simple.

Holmstrom is 1st on the Red Wings in goals. How can you say that. And Maltby deserves to be in the minors but he will play the rest of his contract with the Wings. That being said he provides experience and leadership that a prospect can't bring in. It isn't that simple buddy. Datsyuk and Zetterberg would not be the players they are without Draper, Maltby, and the many other Veterans on the Red Wings the past 6-7 seasons. The number of veterans on the Wings is what makes us the most successful franchise the past 20 years. Veterans don't make rookie mistakes and don't have learning curves, they know what to do and get their job done.

Mursak and Tatar are going to be stars. Mursak has been taking over as of late while Tatar can finish with the best of them. Axelsson needs to get out of this funk soon and return to star-dom.

Anyways some of the posts here are rediculous, people need to get more informed about the Red Wings prospects and the Red Wings philosophies. The Red Wings aren't going to play a prospect until they are NHL ready. Prospects often make rookie mistakes that we can't afford. Also exerience is very underrated over here. You keep the vets until they can't compete in the NHL, which means this is the last season for some. But you can't get rid of every role player, they are called "role" players for a reason, they have important roles that stars can't fill.

Rissmiller is the weak point to his line. I may be a little biased against him but it seems like he constantly turns the puck over but he is always on the scoresheet. I think if they could add Emmerton or Axelsson to that line they would be lights out. Or if Abby comes back throw him in their.
