Doesn't that seem odd? I mean, you wouldn't expect that the Wings would want Ouellet and/or Marchenko up in Detroit if they weren't going to play. And, it doesn't really seem preferable to have them both in the top six at the same time. Is one of Kronwall/Ericsson/DeKeyser/Quincey/Smith hurt or something? It doesn't really add up otherwise, does it?
What Mabus said. With Mule on IR, they're only carrying 13 forwards right now. They promised Ouellet he could go on the father-son trip, thus the call-up.
