He just reminds me of Franzen. Listen to his interviews. He is calm, matter of fact etc. Floats around and gets you angry and then scores a great goal. Doesn't go into the corner. Rarely comes away with the puck along the boards. 


I hope that he develops into something, but I would not hold my breath and I would not offer a 10 year contract either.

I watched him last night again. He acts like Dats when the game needs to be taken over. He just started taking controlling play on a few shifts to urge the players on. Just my observation. He has that "thing" that Z , Stevie, and Dats have. Winner. 


PS, I hope he rubs off on Mantha.

I thought all three of our goals were nice. I also figured out why we are having such a hard time against Utica....


Clendening. But I listened on the radio to the first game and I was wondering how Glennie had cleared waivers to play for the Griffs.

Scrums at the end of the game. Does a game mis. carry over to the next in the AHL? Chicago (rckf) was ugly at the end and the Griffins stood up to the BS.

I understand I think what Jimmy is doing. Mantha needs a REALLY strong dose of humble pie and then get put straight after that. 

Tear down and rebuild.


He has all the tools, but the biggest thing is his lack of toughness and determination to go after the puck. I saw why he had no minutes in game 5. He lost every puck battle that I saw. I think he really thought at the beginning of the year that he was going to walk up into Detroit with all the hype.
