In Topic: Sproul and Ouellet recalled from Grand Rapids

15 April 2014 - 07:44 AM

Honestly what's the harm in letting them play in playoffs? They wouldnt be the first black aces to play in the playoffs before getting much regular season time. And even with rookie Inexperience they're better than Kindl.

Might not hurt to rotate one In for a game and see how they do. I don't think it would crush their confidence if they had a bad game.

 

It might not crush their confidence but it might crush our chances of getting past round 1

I have yet to se a list (including Hockeys Future and Red Wings Central) that has Marchenko ranked higher than either Ouellet or Sproul.

 

As someone who watched a lot of Griffins games and who thinks the world of Sproul I think Marchenko is the best defenceman in our system whose not on the Wings right now.

 

If Sproul hits his potential I think he's the best of the 3 but right now I'd rank them Marchenko, Ouellet, Sproul.


In Topic: Your predictions for the roster heading into the offseason.

UFA Out or retired - Cleary, Samuelsson, Bertuzzi, Quincey,

UFA's retained - Alfredsson (if he plays again) and Legwand.

 

RFA's not tendered - Nicastro, Fournier, Emmerton, Coetzee, Parkes

RFA's Tendered - Dekeyser, Sheahan, Almquist, Nestrasil, Callahan, Ferraro (tendered but put on waivers in the hopes he clears)

 

Final Compliance buyout - Tootoo

 

Jurco starts season in Grand Rapids, nobody is added via free agency, although a trade is a possibility if we decide to move some center depth.

 

At least this year we're cluttered with useful players instead of guys that are of no use to us at all.


In Topic: Advice for Trip to Detroit

It wouldn't help you on the drive down, but when I go to games in Detroit I usually stay in Windsor.

 

Its a very cheap and fast shuttle bus you get at the greyhound station that drops you right at the arena and any of the bars in Windsor will have every game available through the various Canadian networks.

 

Coming from Edmonton though you'll be coming from the opposite direction and staying in Windsor probably isn't as beneficial for you.
