That's just it - it's unlikely that both Landon and Callahan wind up on the roster. Personally, I'd take either guy over Andersson. It basically has to work out so that Franzen remains on IR, Cole's not re-signed and they let Andy walk. I might be in the minority, but I'd be in favor of rolling with this roster:

Callahan, Pulkkinen

Ideally, the Wings find a suitor for Weiss, but I doubt that will happen. I think you've got two guys in Pulkkinen and Jurco who can swap in and out of the lineup, maybe even move into higher positions based on the play of other guys. Ferraro and Callahan could split time on the fourth line. I just like the look of that roster. It allows for guys to earn more ice time - good balance of youth and veterans.

Thanks for the list man ... Didn't think guys from Grand Rapids like Miele and porter would count ... I see quite a few guys leaving and making place for other guys for us to sign anyways

As for hyman he doesn't cost us anything so if he can be had for free then just sign him and whatever happens happens

Gotta think porter Miele Aubry McCollum cole cleary etc... Will most likely not return thus giving us space to sign him and mcnulty/wheaton and a free agent or 2

If he doesn't pan out I can't see a team not taking a chance on a 23 yr old kid with potential


I think Miele, McCollum and Aubry will be brought back. I can't seem to find it now, but there was a quote from Blashill recently saying that he thinks Aubry has more to offer. At the very least, I don't think it would hurt to keep him as a fourth-line center. I also think they'll keep McCollum around because of how he played down the stretch  - Jake Paterson will likely start in Toledo. I agree about letting the other guys go, though. I think Porter is expendable, Cleary is done and I'm worried about Cole's health (though, I would want to hang onto a healthy version of Erik Cole).

Kind of a dark horse for a contract, but I wonder what the brass thinks of Mark Zengerle. He was sixth in scoring among GR forwards. I'd prefer Hyman over Zengerle, for the record. Two years younger and more upside.

I have a feeling well keep miele. Career top six ahlers arent a bad thing to have around, especially when you have so many skilled guys coming through.

But I don't know the rules on two way contracts/contract limits and whether or not miele has given up on being an nhler, or if the wings ever have plans to bring him up.

So if we're under the contract limit, signing him couldn't hurt.

That's the question with Miele. I like him down in GR - gives the team some real scoring depth. They're going to be an inexperienced team up front next season. We're probably looking at a top line with Hoggan-AA-Mantha on it and Tvrdon-Nosek-Frk as a line. It would be nice to have a line with some experience on it. Perhaps Bertuzzi-Miele and another winger. Even with guys like Pulkkinen, Ferraro (and hopefully Callahan) moving up, they've got a solid team.

Everyone know how many contracts the wings have locked up? 50 is the limit right? If we dan get human for free than why not

As for mcnulty and wheaton I'd sign them both ... We all know our weakest position is at d and these 2 kids are still ... Well ... Kids and they are both huge guys so I'd locked them up

Back from a January article

"Marc has always been a player we have coveted off the Cougars roster...Marc is a big and mobile defenseman. He has shown some offensive abilities and also can play with an edge."

Wheaton article


This says we're at 49 contracts: https://docs.google....p=sharing#gid=0

As for Hyman, I think it's worth a shot, but I also think it's important to temper our expectations. Anyone remember Willie Coetzee? He showed some chemistry with Ferraro the year that Landon scored 37 in Red Deer. Doesn't always work out...

Thinking McNulty and Wheaton will be signed

I'd like them to hang onto one of them - doesn't hurt to have size in the system down the line. I'm just not overly convinced they'll sign both players. With Wheaton sidelined for most of the season, they could keep him around to get a better look.

I wouldn't mind if they offered him a contract. They'll be shedding a few and I'm not sure if any of the prospects with a '15 deadline will be signed (McNulty, Wheaton, Marshall or Hudon). Not sure what Hyman's endgame is (I'm guessing he may want to jump right into the NHL), but I'd be comfortable taking a chance on him. He'd have to start in GR, though.
