What the hell is Detroit going to do with all these prospects. They've got prospects coming out of their ears and no place for them to go. Good problem to have, but man, you hate to see them stagnate or leave for nothing.
The Wings have too many good prospects! Damnit, Holland!
Never heart (read) of this guy, so I think it may be just a depth signing, which can be used for trades come draft?
It's not a depth signing. He's a prospect who has potential.
Something was rotten in the NHL in 1999... Just swept the Ducks, won the first two in Colorado, then lose 4 straight? Something stunk about that and it still stinks...anyhow, I remember when Melrose was the coach at Adirondack and was pegged to be the Wings next coach behind Bryan Murray...then Bowman came along. To this day, Melrose will ALWAYS go against the Wings for that reason.
In my experience, Melrose has never hesitated to vociferously praise the Wings when such is merited.
Are they with the team? Or are they absent because the Griffins are still playing?
They're playing with the Griffins. The Wings have a full lineup, so why deny valuable to experience to the team's prospects in Grand Rapids? Tatar, for example, is currently playing excellent hockey. He's looking very out of place in the AHL, which is great news. A year ago, that would not have been true.
A writer from Puck Daddy ripped him a new one for this. I like the caption he used on the title picture: "Pavel Datsyuk tries his darnedest to succeed despite his obvious shortcomings." It's actually a hilarious article; check it out:
I know, right? I'm very nervous about this crazy run losing steam, but they keep gut checking.and persevering.
Game 4 is huge. Chicago is going to come out flying. Wings need to keep mistakes to a minimum and never give up. I would be very nervous letting Chicago tie the series. I don't want them to regain their confidence.
The team has already exceeded expectations.
you don't think throwing him with datsyuk or Z once in a while would be good?
