Coach's video challenge

12 October 2014 - 09:46 AM

In light of yesterday's shennanigans, this would be a prime example of utilizing the coach's challenge.  The NHL is very open to the challenge but not close to implementing it, maybe next season.


Last year the Wings had a doozy against LA where the puck clearly went into the netting and the refs missed it, with the puck bouncing off the LA goaltenders back and into the net.  Karma...


This article is from a few months back but gives insight into their thought process.




I've been very open to having one video challenge per game, yesterday solidified that.

Defensemen: Danny DeKeyser, Jonathan Ericsson, Jakub Kindl, Niklas Kronwall, Brian Lashoff, Kyle Quincey, Brendan Smith.

Goaltenders: Jonas Gustavsson, Jimmy Howard.

Injured reserve: Pavel Datsyuk (short-term).

Will Cleary make the roster? (poll)

The roster is almost set with 3 more cuts to make with Dats on IR and Mrazek being sent down, that leaves one cut left.  This article doesn't even entertain the thought that Cleary can be cut, instead it mentions sending Jurco down. 


So who will it be? Cleary? Jurco? Ouellet? Lashoff?

Blessing in disguise?

08 July 2014 - 09:20 AM

Perhaps not landing any big names or D men this off season will be a blessing in disguise and allow a chance for the younger kids buried to be given some call up time to see what they can do.  If this last season showed us anything, we probably have a few more diamonds in the ruff.
