He's got another year to figure out his skating. Or you're probably right.
If it was up to me, I would trade both Jensen and Oullette for a bunch of hockey sticks and a few bags of pucks. They are not even AHL d-men. Fans in GR have suffered 4 seasons of watching Jensen play and 3 seasons of watching Oullette play.
Svech was struggling this season here in GR badly. If he was not the Wings 1st rounder, he would be still playing in Toledo (ECHL) right now instead of getting this call up to Detroit. He did not look good out there as he was lost at times on the ice. Not surprised here. Hoping for better results for him in the upcoming games, but that might be asking a lot.
i would trade him for 2nd rounder in the draft this year for team who will get his brother
Svechnikov was apparently running on two and a half hours sleep in the game last night.
Surprised no one mentioned the 2-3 times he was right in the crease banging at the puck. They were close chances, I thought that was encouraging.
And to his credit, he got back, just not in time, on the opening goal.
I wonder if Svech was starting to make noise about the KHL.
Agreed. I was actually pleasantly surprised with his play. I don’t get the comments saying he had a bad game at all.
I highly doubt it, dude is extremely driven to be an nhler. Not to mention, I don't think he'd try to leave the year his brother comes. Or that the organization would give a **** and give in to his demands.
unlikely, every interview he's ever given, going back to around draft day, he stated that his dream has always been playing in the NHL. He also really wants to play with his brother, who will play in the NHL. Evgeny moved to NA when he was like 16 so he could assimilate to NA culture/play in Canadian juniors. He's had his sights set on the NHL from the very beginning.
It also suits his game more than European hockey. We will see, I don't think he has been bad or good, he has been pretty meh. I like some of the other things and dislike some of the others. Svechnikov is a player I am not going to be overly critical of. He still has a bunch to work on but he looks like he can play at this level with the necessary skills and work rate. It will be interesting to see if he settles in and starts playing a little more relaxed.
If anything they'd be more likely to have moved him at the deadline, imo. There was an article awhile back about him and Rasmussen expected to at least contend for the team next fall, they probably want to get him an extended look now so maybe that jump isn't quite as hard later on.
