Potential unpopular opinions:

- I think Jimmy's earned the right to start next week in the opener. He's been solid all preseason.
- I still think Larkin should start in the AHL. He's good, but he can be great. Just needs to bulk up and fine-tune a few aspects of his game.

- Drew Miller has mad value, yo.

Wait until the kid actually gets strong. He's really good now, and he's noticeably smaller than everyone else on the ice. A years worth of pro training and he will be even better.


Great point. Once he fills in, look the f*** out NHL. (Have fun in TO Babs)

Kip, I don't think Athanasiou has been so great in these preseason games because he's playing center, I think he's just that good. I still do think he would be just as good or better on the wing, and although I think he may play center down in Grand Rapids this season, I think his future in Detroit is as a winger.


I agree 100% Xym. I think Larkin and the Red Wings would both benefit from him playing a full season down in Grand Rapids, tearing up the American League. That along with continuing to gain chemistry with the other kids (hopefully Mantha). Another reason I'd like to see Larkin stay down is because, when was the last time a Red Wing won the Calder Trophy? 50 years, that's how long... The last three to win it, have all been goaltenders, Roger Crozier (1964-65), Glenn Hall (1955-56) and Terry Sawchuk (1950-51)... It'd be awesome to see Larkin win it, but I don't see him winning it over McDavid / Eichel. but Matthews and company would be a real possibility, especially with a full season of pro under his belt...


Like the past few seasons, probably even more so this season, I'm looking forward to watch the Griffins just as much as the Red Wings. Going to be a great year...

Agreed, having two solid goalies is not a bad thing.


Having two solid goalies is only a bad thing if you hate one of them and hope they fail so you can "be right" about them on hockey forums and message baords.

Read somewhere that we have something like four back to back nights of games in October and two in November.. that should give both goalies plenty of an opportunity to pull ahead for the starting job early in the season. And if both shine, even better! This is a great "problem" to have :P

Sounds like our kids kicked some serious butt tonight. A good sign for the future.

6x the butt bud.
It was good.
