In Topic: Mantha Still Hopes to Play in Detroit This Season

24 January 2015 - 08:38 AM

I think he will get a cup of coffee or two before the end of the season. 1 more injury and he will get his chance. While Ferraro and Challahan have more experience and are playing well at GR neither is a NHL caliber player. Both were on waivers-everyone had a chance to get them for free and everyone passed. mantha just needs to keep working. he will be fine. In the long run and in an odd way, his broken leg will be a good thing. It forced him to start and play in GR all year. The plan was heading into camp that he was going to detroit. Kaser had a nice chat about all of this on the Huge show this week.

he needs to get 100% healthy, play a few games and then we can wait untill Howard is back. No need to do anything untill we face the issue of 3 healthy G's, which isn't the case right now. he has little trade value and is a UFA this summer. Just sit and wait.

In Topic: New Zealand and South African Hockey?

NZ teams do that dance for every national team. basketball, soccer, rugby-where it started, hockey etc....

Both countries are small population wise. NZ has about 4 million total, while SA has many more only about 4 million have the moeny and facilities to play. But SA has produced a few pro players. Olf Kolzig was a south african and our former prospect Willie Coetzee was also one.

If I read this correctly, Mantha stated these things yet you don't know where you heard it or read it?

No I know, can't say the names. Just people that work there.
