In Topic: Firebirds players quit after coaches fired

09 November 2015 - 12:09 PM

Came back just to comment on this one, which I just heard about on the radio. 


Flint gets an OHL team, and the owner pulls some kind of worse-than-bush-league BS. Good on the players for walking out. 


Has this kind of thing ever happened before? 


Wings update from freep....


"I don't know anything about it," Red Wings assistant general manager Ryan Martin told the Free Press this morning. "I was traveling and didn't get home last night until a little bit after 11. I contacted Vili's agent."

Martin called back a few minutes later and said that the agent hadn't yet spoken to Saarijarvi.

Martin said he never has heard of an entire team walking out after a coach was fired.

Is he concerned about how this will affect Saarijarvi?

"Well, not right now, because it's 8:15 on a Monday morning, and it just happened last night," Martin said. "I'd like to gather some information and see what's going on. At the end of the day, I'm sure the commissioner of the (Ontario Hockey League) will be involved today, working with the owners of that team, trying to come to some type of agreement with the players."


In Topic: #73 OA - Defenseman Vili Saarijarvi

Malik sez:


he (Saarijarvi) and Joe Hicketts were the best defensemen at the summer camp. Saarijarvi shoots well, passes superbly, carries the puck up ice with no issues whatsoever and is an excellent skater in all three directions (forward, backward and laterally), and his pace, his professional-already pace, is really exciting to watch. The only things Saarijarvi needs to do to vault himself into the top level of Red Wings prospects are to continue to play in North America, which he will do with the OHL's Flint Firebirds, and to put some weight on his skinny 5'10" frame.



Sounds very different from the debbie downers in here. Huh. 


Looking forward to see this kid in Flint.

Last time I checked he's not playing for the Red Wings, he's playing for Grand Rapids.
Also what does this have to do with Holland?

The Wings have assumed GM responsibilities for the Griffs for a few years now.

In Topic: Over/Under for Larkin's time as a Red Wing in 15/16

He will have a few games. Under 10 max. I say this because they will want to get his feet wet a bit in the big league...since, barring some huge setback, this will be his only AHL season. He will be in Detroit for 16/17 if his current pace of development holds up.
