Hope you're right. I've been hearing (here, mostly) that Mantha is big but doesn't really use his size.
He's not an aggressive player but that doesn't mean you can't use your size to your advantage in other ways. He will fill out his frame and he is definitely the best pure goal scoring prospect we have.
I just don't see it. Who is the next Stevie Y for the Red Wings? The next Fedorov, Lidstrom, Dats, or Z? Where are these kinds of players in the Wings organization? Looks to me like the farm system has a number of potential second line starters (Nyquist, Tatar) but no real franchise type players.
Sproul, Jurco and Mantha have star potential. They all have great size and have been very successful at every level they've competed at.
I thought Franzen looked pretty good. Nice to see him show some emotion and look engaged in the game. Point is he was very noticeable when on the ice. He wasn't just floating around like he's known to do at times.
Helm's improving but kind of a square block in a round hole in that position. Even in that article Babcock stresses Helm is not a second line center. I think we all know that though.
Alfie has never been an issue and has easily been our 3rd best forward this year.
We NEED Weiss performing in that second line center position. It will be a huge factor in our success. I believe he's as much an X factor as Franzen is for this team.
Definitely read this in the voice of Schwarzenegger's Mr. Freeze. hahaha
"Ice to see you!" "Everybody chill!" "I'm afraid my condition has left me cold to your pleas of mercy." "Let's kick some ice!" "If revenge is a dish best served cold, then put on your Sunday finest. It's time to feast! " "What killed the dinosaurs? The Ice Age!" "Allow me to break the ice." "Tonight, hell freezes over!"

Judging by that I would assume no deal is in place with the NHL/Red Wings/Players. I would recommend your friend be very careful when using the "likeness" of any player/team. Never like to see an eager entrepreneur run into legal matters off the get-go.
I disagree.In Soviet times TV lied way more professionally and convincingly and as a result was taken seriously in more places than it is now. However, it still had no credibility over here. So one does not necessarily flow from the other.
In what world is your credibility not based on what you do, say and think? That's entirely what you base credibility on.
