From Bill Roose on my Red Wings IPhone app.
"Recently, Wings general manager Ken Holland alluded to a plan he has to shape the team's roster without having to trim salary or waive players. It's possible that Helm will start the season on injured reserve as he continues to recover from a lower back injury that sidelined him last season. Helm is also battling through a sore groin, which he sustained while skating with teammates last week. The Wings also have options with Nyquist, who could begin the season in Grand Rapids."
They better trade someone and don't even think about sending him down.
The fact of the matter is they should both be playing in the NHL right now and guys like Cleary and filp should be gone. Neither of these guys are going to develop further in the AHL, they can only get better now while playing against NHL players day in and day out.
I know it wont happen, but I'd like to see Tatar on the team this year. He's had plenty of seasoning in the AHL and has numbers very similar to Nyquist.
Franzen Datsyuk Nyquist
Zetterberg Filppula Brunner
Tatar Helm Samuelsson
Bertuzzi Abdelkader Tootoo
I would trade or cut Emmerton and use Miller as the 13th forward. Mursak i'm not sure about, i love his speed, but he's small and doesn't have a lot of skill. I have no idea how long Eaves will be on IR for with the concussion, but i think he might be usefull as a fill in when he recovers
I really hope they make a move at some point on D, cus this scares me a bit.
No way in hell they give us free center ice, although it had better be half price for a shortened season. Either way i will pay for it because i'm a hardcore fan and it's the only way i get to see all the Wings games.
