Rank our griffins d prospects

12 December 2014 - 11:42 PM

Im thinking pretty soon were gonna have to make some moves at d in detroit involving our guys in Grand Rapids

(backman,marchenko ,ouellet ,sproul and jensen)

How you rank them? (the last 2 probably not having a future here)

I'd say ... 1- ouellet 2- sproul 3- marchenko 4- jensen 5- backman

Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

17 November 2014 - 05:19 PM

We need something to get our offence going on a consistent basis , whether it be a trade or calling up pulkkinen and/or mantha down the line

I was thinking with the kids we got coming ip maybe we could afford to use Tatar in a package type deal for evander kane? I know kane has some issues but maybe a change of scenery would do him good and I can see him on a line with datsyuk

So ... Should we consider a trade? Sit back and give it another 10-15 games or consider calling up someone?

Here comes the give weiss a chance comments

Ty rattie - what would it take to get him?

I know the blues probably won't trade him but I'm really high on rattie And I'm just curious what do you think we'd have to give up to get him?

Anthony mantha - what are the chances he plays this year?

03 October 2014 - 03:58 PM

I'm asking this because a friend of mine asked me for advice for his hockey pool and I saw his roster and he had steve ott last year and I told him instead of taking a guy like steve ott who gets you 20-30 pts maybe chance it and take mantha with your last pick this year

So I'm asking does he play this year ? And if so how many games does he play? I'm thinking if he lights it up in the ahl when he returns maybe he'll get a chance here in January and play in the top 6?

Are the wings underrated?

I gotta say I'm kind of annoyed with people on the radio and tv overlooking the wings like they got no chance at winning the division and it's all bruins habs and tampa (although pierre McGuire did just say people will be surprised at how many good prospects they'll see that detroit has in the next few years)

I look at last year and

Weiss missed 56 games
Helm 40
Zetterberg 37
Datsyuk 37
Ericsson 34
Franzen 28
Dekeyser 17

Besides last season and the shortened season we hit 100+pts 12 years in a row (and we still hit 93pts with all those injuries last year)

I know some will say we had lidstrom , and your right but we still got a great roster and promising young players along with the best coach and maybe I'm being naive cause I'm a die hard wings fan but I think we can compete and win our division

So just wondering, are the wings underrated? Or we clearly on the decline?
