    True, he did not get an assist there, but he created that chance.

    Honesty kind of losing faith. He's still so young tho, we're just going to have to be patient.

    Given his 'later' 1st round draft position, I think more people need to take that into consideration, not excluding myself. Sometimes I forget that he was drafted when the Wings were still making the playoffs every year. I don't know if even Pepperidge Farm remembers that far back.

    Mantha looks as though he has hit his full stride at 25. People were tough on him early on after he was drafted. I think he’s a good example of why patience is needed with guys like Veleno, Zadina, Rasmussen, etc. going forward.

    I didn't have any issues with him last season for his brief stint. Same holds true this season.

    The AA goal was worse imo. Under the right pad. Nobody screening. Hard shot sure, but not blistering. If you can't get butterfly down and close off the bottom then forget it.

    I think this Hronek has some potential and that 29 guy.

    Did you notice that he had a little chat with Reaves, and it looked like Reaves wanted no part of it. They have fought before, looked like Reaves got a few more punches in, but it was 5 years ago when they both just entered the league. It's always nice to have an enforcer even though they play a much smaller role now.

    Also, I'd really like to see them dress 7D, Bowey as the 7th and have him play wing or D. That way if McIlrath gets a major they have an extra D.

    Yeah I did see that. I would think the only guys in the league that might give Reaves pause at this point are Lucic and McIlrath. Part of the reason McIlrath hasnt fought yet is theres no one dumb enough to fight him or tough enough for it to not be dumb except two or three guys. If he can keep a role on the PK, its worth having that kind of guy as a 7th D while the team sucks for sure.
