#2580734 All Purpose Grand Rapids Griffins Thread

Posted by krsmith17 on 12 March 2015 - 09:36 AM

I would put them as 1a and 1b right now as far as our forward prospects go. I've been extremely high on Athanasiou for a couple years now, and there's no question that he has had the much better start to his pro career. Mantha, I think will be a great player as well, he's just taking longer to adapt to the pro game. I think they will be 1 and 2 in scoring for the Griffins next season and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they are both top 5 in the league.


The thing for me is, I think they are both very different players but both will be just as effective in their own way, but I think Mantha is slightly overrated, while Anthanasiou is slightly underrated league wide and even by some Wings fans... All the talk has been about Mantha and Larkin, but I am just as high on Athanasiou as either of those two for sure.

Another big win 13-0-3-0 in the last 16 games. They are rolling


Athanasiou had a beauty.


#2580554 Franzen on IR

Posted by Son of a Wing on 10 March 2015 - 08:55 AM


Yeah I'd agree and say the speculation is justified. Franzen turns 36 this year and has been trending down for the past what, 5 years? His comments lead towards him never really enjoying the game all that much


Concussions have destroyed careers as of late and Franzen doesn't really seem the type to exactly fight in order to try and come back. (not that it would always help with a concussion case)


Buddy takes the smallest hits to the dome and he looks like he got kronwalled


One of the biggest myths among Wings fans...


He's actually been a model of consistency.  Points/Game Last 10 Years...

Franzen, Helm and Marchenko all skating this morning.


Let's get healthy and go on a run.

Put Abby or Cole with Datsyuk and Tatar. No need of Zetterberg having both of the teams only two top 6 wingers with size.

Abdlekader - Dastyuk - Tatar
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Cole
Weiss - Sheahan - Pulkinennen
Miller - Glendenning - Jurco

What's so hard about that?

Love him on Twitter haha since he went to Florida it's only gotten better....

"@strombone1: 690 PLAYERS


He followed that when they got the first overall pick with "I've never won anything before!!"

But i think this is my all-time favorite....

"@strombone1: Don't think so....."@FlaPanthers: Does Roberto Luongo have the Twitter?"


Eddie Lack is pretty funny on Twitter too.

LGW! And nobody post THAT picture of Happy, please.

I thought Marchenko has a boobootoo.


I'm excited to see Monahan.  He's the only twitter person I look up because he's funny in a very dry way.


I hope we win.  That would be nice.


You ought to check out Luongo's twitter.

Duncan Keith may be a Blackhawk, but he's a true hockey player.  He made the wish of a little girl come true.

One of my best friends had CP and so this clip has some special meaning to me.  Kudos to Keith for making her day.

Fil > Weiss
Hudler has 50 points and he had 25 + 25 the year before he signed with Calgary.
I wish we had both but it did feel like they both needed a fresh start.

I love this year because now I expect wins every night pretty much, just like the good old days!

Well I guess there's no such thing as bad publicity.
