I'd still take Datsyuk for 40 games over Vanek for the next 5 seasons

I was under the impression he was under contract for one more season but I probably just wasn't paying enough attention

 

Good for him, he has potential to be a good backup. He stepped up this season but it seems like Coreau stepped up even more.

Jack Eichel played college hockey and never played more than 40 games.

 

Jack Eichel is better than Dylan Larkin

Pure talk, but I will say that about 2 years ago I said the Wings will get Miller to play with his brother and end his career at home backing up Mrazek. It'd be too funny if it happens!

I like to go back to the Bobby Ryan trade. If Holland had the balls to deal Jarnkrok back then and a Nyquist with high end potential we'd of had and still have a top line scorer on this team. He may be declining a bit, but he is still better than most of our wingers now.

I think Larkin slower down because he was forced to play in our enept system. At the beginning of the year he was a wild hare and just played hard to make the team. But as he slowly learned the system, his stats suffered.

 

I'll have to disagree, but of course theres no way of knowing because its all speculation

 

Larkin, prior to the end of the past season, had never played 82 games in a season before. NCAA teams play roughly 40 games a year, at a decreased level of intensity. Add the travel schedule and pressure of the NHL, and its pretty easy to get winded at the halfway point of the season. I fully expect Larkin to be more consistent this season.
