Sure, that too, but Cholowski can learn a lot in GR still.
what is the problem with griffins releasing a constant / daily flow info to some sort of media outlet ? its been like this all along / for years , dont they grasp its important to fans to know whats going on every day ? and its not like its difficult , they could just post a daily report from a team writer on their web site . the brass in detroit has to enlighten them as these are red wing prospects there . even if the red wings have to pay somebody there in gr to write daily reports from info released to them by griff brass / coaches , they need to become a more proffesional organization . even if it takes a new gm there
Crap, I forgot he's a righty.
In that case, I definitely want Lashoff instead of Hicketts. Go with:
Definitely looks like AHL pairings, but decent AHL pairs.
In any case, I hope Biega sits, Bowey needs to play games so he can figure things out.
Because the Red Wings brass must have instructed Simon (head coach) and Martin (GM) not to discuss injuries to high Red Wings prospects (Ras, Zadina, Veleno, Svech, etc) to the press or anybody else. Pete Welker (GR Press/Mlive beat writer) and other local media in GR are asking Simon about the status of Ras, but he only stated that it is a minor injury and day to day. From what I saw at Ras last game, he took 2 shots (head down with the puck at center ice both times) and the 2nd one rattled him good. He should be playing sometime this week (possibly tomorrow AM game or by Friday for sure) from what I'm hearing here. He might have been on concussion protocol (can not confirm that) during that time and he could be or has been cleared to play. Will see.
Any news on when DeKeyser might be back?
Yeah, like our basic net-front defence has been pure crap on last games. Only Nemeth and DeKeyser are good. We would be better with Lashoff, Ericsson and McIlrath there, than current other guys. Green has always been horrible, and kids won't have muscle. Bowey is probably worst.
This guy is clearly the solution. We are clearly not tanking in an obvious, embarrassing fashion.
I think McIlrath could be the best partner for Cholowski. He needs a right-handed stay-at-home partner, and there's nobody else until Seider or Lindström have developed enough.
Daley is horrible, so is Bowey, Ericsson already sent down. Biega was crap too.
DeKeyser - Hronek
Nemeth - Green
Cholowski - McIlrath
That would be my ideal defence for current moment.
Only problem with that is Ryan O'Reilly isn't under contract.
We are unironically talking about how Lashoff and McIlrath are our best options and no one is disagreeing
Why is it important to them that fans know what is going on every day? They couldn't give one flying F about what decaguard or tsweeney or whoever need to know about prospects. What's professional about running out a news story when a guy has a sore leg or sore back or has the flu? Guy doesn't play and you're asked why, you just say he's not available. It's not professional or unprofessional to hold data like that close to the vest. Why do you think "upper body injury and lower body injury are terms that are in such vogue?
I think everyone would be a little better off if there weren't reports out "every day". Hell, people wouldn't be looking to bury Rasmussen or Zadina or whoever when they don't have 5 points in 3 games or what have you. People on the hole are nosy and way overreactive. To me, it's kinda better when you're not getting an information overload or watching Zadina's third shift of the game and wondering why he isn't lifting his leg 5 degrees more.
Yup... we're less tanking and more just have a monumental lack of NHL ready talent.
Hicketts isn't good but Bowey is hot garbage. At this point the only reason Bowey, Hicketts and Daley are still on the team I'd have to think is that we're trying to ice the worst d corps in the league.
Yeah the Wings basically haven't been laying the body on people at all... hoping this will change that some.
Yet people say talent isn't a issue with why the wings are getting crapped on lol.
I said it before the season even started, everyone wanted Big Mc down in GR to protect the kids...
He may be slow, but he has decent awareness and gap control for a guy his speed. More than likely will get beat one on one by the faster players in this league, but he didn't look horrible last season.
One thing that hasn't been mentioned is that he's only 27. I doubt his foot speed will improve from where he's at, but at least he won't be on the decline for a couple more years.
Who's saying that?
The extreme Blashill crowd. I mean most wouldn't be shocked if he was canned but some of the arguments don't seem to care what he has to work with.
My argument is that he chose what he has to work with. I would take Lashoff and McIlrath over Hicketts and Bowey, any day of the week.
Though Bowey needed some time to prove himself. I'm beginning to think he doesn't understand the concept of coverage. I think I'd still take Bowey over Biega, and I don't blame Blash for Biega. That was Stevie's fault.
Yeah that choice of Hicketts over Lashoff is definitely what put the wings in this situation...
Hicketts is on pace to set a new NHL record for +/-, ahead of AA, lol.
