    That's what I'm getting at, the poster I was replying to was assuming Cholo would drop into the Griffin's lineup with ease.

    Doubt he would get a game in with GR, Saarijarvi can’t even get a spot right now

    really only reason for him to play is if they want to get a better longer look at him against men.

    What' the point of favouring career ahlers?

    I was hoping for Timmins, so disappointed when the ****ing Avs took him.

    Ryan Martin has got to get rid of some of these veterans. Logjam is not strong enough a word to describe Grand Rapids on the blue line.

    On D we have no upcoming UFA's, but Renouf is an RFA. I dont know much about him.
    The following year, Sulak, Russo, and Hicketts are all RFA's (though I assume by then Hicketts is either a Wing or gone)

    Clague isn't that good. He is very frustrating to watch.

    Any of our left-handed D-man, he is better than them. I don't really care who they sit.

    But he has seen the system they play in development camps, he should get a few practices and draw in. Cholowski is really good and is big enough not to worry about him getting physically manhandled.

    Chances are if there's no injuries, he won't play, right? Their last regular season game is tonight and the home ice is still TBD, so the stakes are pretty big.

    I will be at a loss if he doesn't. Why so we can keep a less talented player in the lineup?

    I think he will practice for a couple days, but at some point he has to crack the lineup, he is better than who we have.

    We didn't ask this when Larkin got there and we shouldn't ask it when either Cholowski or Rasmussen (if he does lose next round and we are still in the AHL playoffs) are going to draw into the lineup. They should, they are better players than what we have and developed enough physically we have nothing to worry about. As soon as he has the system he should be in for somebody, in my opinion he is their best d-man the first game he suits up.

    I completely agree, the best players should play. The coaching staff better have the same idea.

    He has too.

    It's the justification for having a farm system

    Sure its nice to allow guys who will never play in the NHL more time to play the game but the focus has to be about detroit.

    He is our top Dman prospect, play him

    I have no problem with AHL teams trying to win. They are their own organizations.

    In the case of both Cholowski and Rasmussen, they are players that help you win. They are more talented than the vast majority of guys on AHL rosters. Their stays at that level are going to be short or non-existent in the case of Rasmussen outside of this potential run. They draw in precisely because you're trying to win and they give you the best chance. Not just because the Griffins are the Red Wings play things. No that is why Givani Smith is going to just be a practice guy because that is not good for all involved. But playing Cholowski or Rasmussen are no-brainer decisions for me because they improve the Griffins chances of winning in games they suit up for.
