In Topic: Rank our griffins d prospects

I've not seen enough of Jensen, Marchenko and Backman to rate them but the fact we have this depth is exciting!

I'm really big on Sproul I always picture him and DeKeyser as a pairing.

I'd take this one with a grain of salt, guys. I lived in Windsor for 27 years, and got to read Bob Duff's work quite a bit. In 2011, Bob joined Twitter and stirred things up with a Bogosian to Detroit rumor. He even tweeted me back at the time, saying it was very close, and Holland was about to pull the trigger on the deal outlined here:


Oddly enough, Bob writes for Hockey Buzz on the side now. I don't think it discredits him as a journalist, but I question anyone who writes in the same realm as Eklund when it comes to rumors.

I'm not saying there's no chance he's right about this one, but he's been getting a little less reliable the past two to three years or so. Right when he joined Twitter, which I doubt is a coincidence.

Thanks for the heads up dude, hope he's right on this one!

The Windsor star (not sure how reliable of a source they are?) is reporting that babs is close to signing long term in Detroit, in a deal that would make him the highest paid coach in the league. Babcock previously said he wouldn't negotiate during the season so maybe take that with a grain of salt but, I wouldn't be surprised; especially with how well they're doing lately.

Bob Duff is pretty reliable

I'm still a little bit surprised that no-one took a gamble on him! $2.5M and UFA at the end of the year, could have helped someone out at least!

I've watched this film on Netflix a few times now. The more I see stories like this the more I struggle with the role of the enforcer/fighter in the game.
