In one of the articles, it mentions Shanahan's salary is $2.5M/yr.




No one brought this up yet but Babcock is sure to make more money than the GM whoever he is ... but do you think here's a case where the coach makes more than the President of Hockey Operations?  No way Shanny makes more than $6.5M/yr ... right?

Not that I disagree with folks doing their time in the minors before getting the call up - BUT - how come it seems that every other stinking team can but babies on the ice and they (for the most part) do just fine?


I'm as excited about this kid as anybody but I'd definitely prefer to see him spend a year down in Grand Rapids. We've been doing it (developing our prospects) right for so long, I don't want to stray from that. I do think he is our future top line center and I don't want to set him back in his development by rushing him to the bigs. People need to remember that he is still only 18 years old (will be 19 by training camp). It's not even that I don't believe he is physically ready, or that he is not skilled enough, for me, I want to make sure he is mentally ready, and I don't think many teenagers are. Let's just see what he can do over the next few weeks in the Calder Cup Playoffs before we anoint him and trade away our third line center... My prediction is he puts up a few points but doesn't dominate like many think he will. I'll say 5-7 points in 10-14 games... Either way, I was looking forward to Sunday nights game, this just adds to the excitement. Go Larkin! Go Griffins!

wait, wait, wait.. Hyman's going to bust into the system? That's going to be a bloody mess. Hope his transition playing with the big boys isn't too painful. Maybe he can split time.


can't wait to see the line of AA-Larkin-Mantha next season in GR! WOW!


...and if Hyman comes here via UFA, oh boy! Katy bar the Door! The rest of the NHL is in trouble!
