    i think so as well. His offensive talent in juniors and in the AHL were on display, i just think he was overthinking the game at one point

    We will have to wait and see how he comes off the knee. He looked ready for the next step to me in the pre-season before the injury and a little better in the skating department.

    I think the fact he is going to train with an elite player every off-season is going to help. He looked to make big gains this summer when training with his brother. I think Svech still looks like a good 3rd line forward to me. He plays hard and he plays through people. He is rounding out his game nicely. I am not sure there is tons of offensive upside but I like him as a player. He plays the right way a lot when I watch him, but we will have to see how he comes off this injury.

    Im blown away anyone would consider an ACL return this year. Australian Football players who do ACLs are out min 10 months. Though they have a lot more change in direction on testing ACL joints.

    They trained really hard with his brother on last summer. Too bad we didn't see those results yet.

    Physical weaknesses are easiest to fix. Just work work work. I wouldn't worry about them.

    skating isn't as bad for ACL as running with COD but his season is still probably over. parise came back in 5 months when he tore his ACL back in '10-'11 but he obviously wasn't his normal self. and it was just one game as iirc, devils were eliminated in the playoffs after that. maybe he could play in the AHL if griffins season extends long enough.

    Unfortunately, it was an ACL/MCL injury. MCL is important for lateral stability.

    His skating was an issue before the injury, and this will be another hurdle that will be difficult for him to over come.

    Axel has never reached his potential as a result.

    I don't have any high hopes for the kid to come back from this knee injury. I think he could still be an NHLer, but he's going to miss on a whole year of development time here plus coming back from the physical drawbacks of the injury itself.

    Seen crazier things, though. Still remember Chelios coming back from knee reconstruction in three months.

    I am not counting on him playing again this year. However, an ACL injury isn't a death sentence in this day and age.

    The injury could be very bad, however we will have to wait to see what he looks like next year. Even if he does make it back for the tail-end of this season, I don't think it would be wise judging him then.

    I thought he was starting to look pretty comfortable and solid in the NHL in the spring last year. Had 3 pts in his last 3 NHL games despite limited minutes. Looked like he was growing into a possible middle 6 winger, still wouldn’t rule that out entirely.

    Some bad luck for the kid, hopefully he is able to come back and train well going into next year.

    Maybw his time as being considered a core piece moving forward, but if we kept Frk along in the system for two years longer after being drafted than Svech has now, I dont think they’ll be quick to get rid of his rights

    I felt bad for the guy when I heard of his injury, based on his interviews he intensely worked hard to prepare for this season. While I'm not sure what level of a player he will be in his prime, I do know that many a players began their career at their age 23 season. I often have him penciled in my mind as a solid 3rd liner with 2nd line possibility. And you know what, that's not bad. The notion that time is running out for him doesn't really cross my mind. Heck, Datsyuk started his career at 23 (disclaimer: he will never be Datsyuk). Plus with the transition we're going through, next season will bring opportunity for him to play just the same this season has for others. I do know one thing for sure, even if he could come back at let's say the last month or so of the season, I wouldn't play him. There wouldn't be much of a reward in playing with what will be a pretty bad team when he could risk tweaking his knee. I just want him to be a student of the game between now and next season.

    When (not if) he comes back, let him play in GR til he looks like he's in '19 preseason form. Then call him up & reward him for his hard work/courage/determination. That'll go a long way. This kid is a fighter, battling injuries/obstacles. Have him going into the summer on a high note with 10+ games in the NHL. We'll probably need the bodies if/when Nyquist is traded. That stint would go a long way in his mind & throughout the offseason. He'll probably be a 3rd line W next season, and possibly crack the Top 6 a year or two after that.

    Someone above was saying it was an ACL/MCL; did he tear one or both? Clearly, I like his chances more if it was one and not both. Also, agree about the injury itself not being a death sentence, but it's losing the development time that I think will be difficult on top of the injury. I do think there comes a point where a player loses the ability to maximize his abilities, and where it becomes more about grinding the rough edges off the player that he is.

    I think we'll see ~10 AHL games + AHL playoff run from him still at this season.

    Could see NHL icetime... why not, there's no roster limit after trade deadline and he is not healthy before that.

    MCL's heal relatively quickly and often don't even need surgery. his MCL should be fine by now, though the ACL rehab has a long way to go.

    He had one bad year and it seems most (even Wings' brass as he got much less ice-time than other prospects in the preseason) are giving up on him. He was much more productive in his rookie season with the Griffs than AA or Mantha were and he provides a physical element to his game that other Wings' top prospects and ypoung guns don't.

    I still think this kid is going to be good. He has always struck be as a 25-25 guy, and I think he can still do that. He looked great in the preseason, and he still brings a physical presence that most of our prospects do not.

    If he can make it back this season, I’d love so see him ride shotgun with Larkin and Zadina for the last 3-4 games of the season.

    he should not see NHL time after this injury. you might be back and able to play after 5 or 6 months, but trusting your body completely again and beeing able of the things you were before, that takes a little bit longer. Since he is basically still a prospect, have patience.

    If he makes it, I see him in the mold of Bertuzzi, only a bit bigger.

    I think it has less to do with the bad statistical year and more to do with the injuries that have cost him valuable development time and could hinder him physically going forward.

    Also, he was pretty hyped up for his skill. I remember some calling his moves Datsyukian at times and yet we’ve barely seen that at the pro level. Him being one of our higher picks doesnt help either. Wouldn’t consider him a key prospect going forward.
