More Mantha stuff.....

11 December 2014 - 04:12 PM

no I can't say the who, whats when where why's...... So, he is a very humble kid. Mantha openly admits he hasn't adjusted to the AHL game yet. he is surprised at the difference in speed, strength, roughness etc.... wasn't expecting it to be as big a difference. Mantha thinks he needs a full year in GR. He is fully aware that the entire AHL targets him when he steps on the ice. the other teams game plan for him every shift. 

 

Of course all of this is good to hear/see. The game of adjustments is what makes or breaks most pro athletes. can they see what the other teams are doing and then adjust their game to counter it. 


In an odd way.....

Because it is early in the season, in an odd way I actually look forward to Griffins games more than RW games atm. It is the young talent - Mantha that I am really looking forward to watching. Hell I don't even care about the Griffs record. Just that Mantha, Pulk, Oullett, Sproul, AA, etc... have good games. Of course if they all are, the record will take care of itself. If we can find 2-3 more studs like Mantha over the next couple of years, then by 2020 we will be legit SC contenders again.


Kevin and Kelly Klima....

Noticed this pair on the Knights roster. Are they Petr's boys? Both from Bloom Hills and he still lives/works in Detroit.... So? Anyone know for sure?


A couple of misses....

There were 2 undrafted UFA's that I was hoping we would have signed last summer. Trevor Van Reimsdyk and Barcley Goodrow. TVR signed with the B hawks and has played every game for them this year. Goodrow signed with the SJS and has been on their roster all season, playing in 4 games. Both were misses on our part. of course them being UFA's means its a crap shoot. But both would have made us a better team/system. Oh well.....


Mantha getting closer.

Didn't see this posted anywhere. Kaser had pics up of Mantha pumping the iron at the Griffs facility. Looked like reps at 225. Nice! Hopefully he is back soon!
