In Topic: Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

29 October 2014 - 07:48 AM

I agree with much of what you're saying, however, I do believe, in Weiss' case, that it is a good idea to play a couple games down in the minors to get his game going after missing as much time as he has. I expect he will average around 18 minutes or so down in GR over the two games playing in a top 2 line role with similar skilled players he has played with in Detroit. I think it will benefit him to play substantial minutes with the Griffins, against slightly lesser competition, rather than playing 8 minutes in a third line role with the Wings. Confidence is huge in any sport, and if he can feel good about himself after a couple games with the Griffins, I think that will get his game going with the Wings. The key in my opinion is that after this conditioning stint in the minors, Babcock needs to give him in a top 6 role with linemates he can actual play with. There is no point in relegating him to the third right away again, let the guy play his game...


I agree with this completely. Build up his game conditioning and confidence in the minors for two games, then get him up playing top 6 and pp with guys like Gus and Tatar

Gonna be a recurring theme this year. Detroit just doesnt have enough proven NHL scoring right now.


We have a 5 million dollar Stephen Weiss not playing. Guy could easily get 50 points if Babcock wasn't so stubborn. Also smith literally has the best offensive instincts for the d-men on this team. It's beyond me why he isn't on the pp. Our pp is garbage but we don't use arguably out number 1 offensive d-man. Go figure
