    wow, interesting.

    remember when everyone on this message board was complaining not enough young players were going to be given a shot this year? so far cholowski, rasmussen, and ehn have made the opening night roster.

    Witowski waived. I appreciate the guys heart but there is no place for him on this team. Let him go to the Griffs as personal protection for Zadina. It’s a good role for him.

    Don't start this narrative. The board's complaints about not playing younger players over the years while sucking were legitimate gripes with the franchise.

    Is it confirmed he’ll play opening night? Or did he just take Wits spot as the 13th/14th forward?

    I'm not trying to insinuate that you're wrong or making this up, but where did you read/hear that he'd made the NHL team? I don't see anything about any roster moves newer than them sending Rybar and Chelios to the AHL.

    The board's complaints, specifically a few people, was that they didn't believe the Wings young players were going to be given a legit shot to make the NHL roster THIS SEASON. Had nothing to do with complaining about the past.

    It'll be nice for him to sit in the presser every night.

    Looks like the big one I missed was Christoffer Ehn, who was here on the ice this morning. First year in North America but has pro experience in Sweden. Two-way forward who can really skate Max Bultman on Twitter

    This has to mean he is actually going to play right? Why keep him around as the extra forward? There is only one spot in the lineup between Ehn, Frk, and Svechnikov

    I would argue that it has everything to do with the past. If the Red Wings would have proven at any point in the past that they were going to give the Rookies a legitimate shot, the doubters wouldn’t be doubting anything. They would have no reason to. The “tie goes to the vet” narrative has always been pretty legitimate. The biggest difference this year is that they didn’t sign Frans Nielsen to replace Zetterberg, they didn’t sign any insurance to replace an injured Kronwall or Ericsson, etc. they don’t have a #7 Kindl/Smith to plug in when injuries arrive. That’s the biggest difference to me.

    They went into the offseason saying they were going to give a spot on D to someone, it looks like they may have a couple more spots open to start the year due to Green’s injury, as well as another dman or two not ready. On offense, it’s impressive that they’re giving Rasmussen a spot, giving a spot to Ehn, because I think the forward openings are pretty slim. I haven’t been able to look at the depth chart, but I’d imagine they’ll have to waive someone else? Frk? Witkowski was just waived.

    So, whose sitting? Because right now they have:

    Mantha-Larkin-Abdelkader
    Bert-Nielsen-Nyquist
    Ras-AA-Vanek
    Helm-Glendenning-Svech/Frk

    Not even sure where he could slot in.

    McIlrath is a better personal protector in all honesty.

    Ehn is a very impressive checking line player, I love the way he skates. I said I thought he would pass Turgeon by the end of the year but hey he did it already. Good on him. Happy to have him and this might make Glendening more expendable when Babs calls in February.

    Nice, good for the kid, I wasn't expecting it but he was a solid kid - responsible.

    Svech is injured, so he's out and Frk isn't practicing on the PPs in practice, so he's likely the 13th/14th forward. Ehn will slot on the 4th line.

    Guys, I've been overly negative for the past 2-3 seasons, but this is good news. I won't be hypocritical and tell anyone to not be skeptical, but I think at this point we need to take these moves at face value. An emphasis is being made to play the kids, this is what we want.

    Definitely a bit surprising but he was solid. I really liked him in the prospects tourney (he played pretty physical there too) and was solid in the preseason. Makes Glendening expendable for sure
