No one's arguing that Calle's not playing well in the AHL or that he doesn't have NHL upside.
Holland's responsibility is to keep Detroit in the hunt. He's not going to stand pat and throw in the season towel just so we can horde B caliber prospects.
I guess if jarnkrok is a b prospect then besides mantha and anyone in the wings line up then we are seriously screwed
Well... no reason to break them up right now, but I wonder if they can keep it up. They still don't look great at times, they're a slow bunch when they get stuck in the defensive zone. But all 3 are good at shielding the puck along the boards and they also all got decent vision and hands making them an okay offensive threat.
I wish Glendening could stop being an offensive black hole because just a little bit of offense from him would make him such a solid player. I wonder if Ferraro or Callahan can steal his job next year.
Got a good feeling about Callahan .... Glendening won't be in the league within 5 yrs guy has no skill with the puck
Should have known better .... It's the wings bs way of doing things
We have problems scoring goals .... Call up a sniper and send him back down
Holland:well we just didn't see any place with him in the lineup with miller and Andersson and bertuzzi and we like this glendening kid and cleary is coming back soon and Samuelson is almost done renovating my bathroom so he will be back in the lineup just no spot for any of our kids
Great game imo. We played an awful OT, but we were unlucky not to win in regulation.
I hope Gustavsson gets some more starts the rest of the way. Howard for some reason isn't getting it done in most games. Never a big save at a key moment.
Never a big save at a Key moment ... Yet he's suppose to be an "elite" goalie ..... Like you just said for some reason howard seems to never make the big save when we need him to
And if he busts and cant compete at the NHL level then what?? The Wings are still trying to win right now. This fan base would not accept anything else so they went with a proven commodity that can help them now as opposed to a commodity that only has a chance of winning. Legwand is a better hockey player right now than Jarnkrok. When your trying to win now which do you think helps the most? Your putting Jarnkrok on a pedestal that he hasnt earned yet.
Legwand is a mid 30s 3rd liner ufa ....you trade jarnkrok type prospects in blockbuster deals not in legwand type deals .... Habs gave up less than us and got a 30+ goal guy
Lot's of talk about Jarnkrock but some seem to have forgotten that if Detroit makes the playoffs Nashville also gets a 2nd. That 2nd along with other pieces could have fetched something better. I would have preffered Holland packaged a 2nd and 1st for a big player.
Ya don't remind me ... Almost tempted to miss the playoffs now so we can keep our 2nd and draft In the top 10 to draft a center cause of Hollands stupidity
