Given that the wings and pens are 1&2 in man games lost, you could see no suspensions were coming.
And I don't advocate any shot to the nuts, and I wish it was a different retaliation, but honestly its about time someone on the wings stood up for themselves.
Wings are deep at center, especially when/if we get healthy. But if this kid is willing to come to camp and try out go for it. It would be great to have him as an emergency call up at some point (like when helm gets hurt again) but I just don't see the Wings having space for him right now, maybe in a year or two unfortunately.
His khl contract isn't up until after next season anyway.
Honestly aside from the few exceptions most fights are just to get some energy for the teams.
In the NHL you see fighters pat the other guy on the back or see his lips mouth something supportive.
They're putting personal safety aside for their teams, and know its dangerous.
Those two were literally exchanging solid punches to the face for how long?
It's awesome they were happy for eachother, who cares they acknowledged the good scrap after.
Good lord that's what I said when we got him!!!! Can you imagine someone else's 3rd line trying to keep up with the kids. Not to mention another 3 with really good centers. We are deep as hell if those two Euro twins can get back.
I pray we get healthy just to see how it all works out.
The kids against an average 3rd line is almost unfair, now imagine someone's fourth line trying to keep up with helm Weiss and abby.
Why would one of the better AHL prospects go home if they can make more money here and get a place on the big club soon? The Predators need offensive help their D and goaltending are set so it's not like he wouldn't have chance there. If he is indeed set on going back this deal would be better but till that happens I am not buying it.
I agree with you, except he won't make more money here.
