I don't think that's a true sign of the apocalypse.


I think you're wrong.

No Larkin, eh? 


I guess they saw as much as they needed.


Thought there are, what, 27 more preseason games left?

Anyone know why Abdelkader has 2 black eyes?

He had a scuffle with Chris Kelly during the un-televised game vs Boston.

I think Larkin would make us a better team but him getting experience being one of the best players in the AHL and possibly a calder cup run would make him a better player. I have no doubt he would be an impact NHL player right now though


So then why not let him? That's what I don't get about those saying he's better off in the A playing top line minutes. Playing 3-4th line minutes in Detroit he's:


A) Lining up against players better than 1st line AHL players

B) Learning from our veterans, and other team's veterans

C) Already a large upgrade over Andersson and, probably, the oft-injured Darren Helm


Holland's a stubborn old goat. Who hasn't the kid impressed? Let him play.

Got a feeling he's gonna make the roster and stick around if he produces


Not when you've already got an established veteran producer like Andersson at center.


Oh look at that, there go my eyes, rolling out of my head.
