Surprised they didn’t make room for him, but I get it
I like Bobby Ryan but we have some younger guys I think have earned a shot
So Raymond has a legit shot at RW1?
Sounds like he is starting the year in that spot
I'm not sure we don't see Zadina at RW1 at some point. It'll be interesting to see how they break down top 6 (6 forwards are obvious). I'm sure we'll see some adjusting but Raymond and Larkin had clear chemistry so im glad at least we are riding that to start
Also would like Veleno and Gagner to swap
Maybe, but Zadina and Larkin have been dreadful together. I like him with Suter and Fabbri.
Welp Veleno down to GR
Feel bad for Ryan, but maybe he can catch on somewhere or get a job with the organization.
Probably thought we had better options bottom 6 and once Raymond established himself we didn't have an opening anymore top 6
Roster set at 23, not sure what Rowney brings but I'd guess he's the healthy scratch most nights so makes sense he's up instead of a younger guy
Think I would have preferred Veleno to Namestnikov, Gagner and even Stephens, but they don't have options and I'm sure he'll be up first injury.
Bitch all you want about ESPN, but I’m happy they have hockey again
Espn+ with a VPN going to save me having to pay some expensive streaming this year just to get Bally's
I am ready for good clean fun
I swear I never looked, buy when I read this I thought, "great...I'm sure Pittsburgh and TB will be very happy".
Then I just flipped on the tv and checked to see who was playing. Yep.
ESPN hockey theme made my loins quiver
Am I the only Detroiter that just watched CBC (and PASS/50/FSD)? Have minimal emotional connection with ESPN hockey though it’ll be great to have the additional availability.
No pressure rookies, you just have to face the Lightning tomorrow after they got embarrassed in front of the entire world.
Fuck yes. That theme rips
I would replace Erne with Rasmussen, but I like the PP groups.
Mo feeding Hronek for some bombs isn’t a bad call.
Expected Hronek to get a third one.
Any projections for the Griffins lineup?
You can just tag him.
Worst pair of alternate captains in the league?
[Googles Buffalo’s alternate captains]
Berggren - Veleno - Barber
Hirose - Crisculo - Tyutayev
Elson - Pearson - Verbeek
Yan - Curry - Shine
Sebrango - Newpower
Lashoff - Murphy
Renouf - Witowski
McIssac and Barton draw in if they are ever healthy
Hopefully Eemil Viro, Albert Johansson, and William Wallinder make it over to NA next year. Tuomisto doesn’t seem like he’ll need another year in college either.
I think Johansson is a lock. Wallinder probably needs another season in Sweden, but Viro could make it over.
Any other of the Swedish kids close?
I think Edvinsson could make the Wings out of camp next season. I am not sure if we move up his development that quickly, but I bet he is in Camp at a minimum.
Soderblom probably comes over next season and plays for GR.
I really want Soderblom to turn into something. Just because of his size.
He just needs to be good enough to play on a third line then you can slap him in front of the net on the PP a la Tomas Holmstrom.
Stecher hurt or healthy scratch?
Healthy scratch I believe
Vasilevskiy is 12-0-0 lifetime vs. Wings with a 1.77 GAA and .938 save pct... going to be a fun night lol
I was not pronouncing Suter first name right
Am I losing my mind, or was Larkin not our captain last year?
You’re not. They just wanted to do a presentation with fans.
Is Karen Newman finally gone for good? Thank God.
4 min PP and best chance was by TB...typical. although movement was better than last years PP.
What's the expectations for this season? With how terrible they've been and living out of market I haven't paid attention the team at all for the last four years. Now that it seems a ton of games will be on ESPN+ I'll watch them pretty regularly.
Expectations for me are bad but not worst in the league bad, maybe 5th-10th worst team in league and hope young guys look good. Vrana being out 4 months really dampened my hopes of anything better
Watch out, NHL!
We are gonna suck, but not suck enough to get a high pick.
I feel like I've been saying it a couple years now, but it wouldn't shock me to see Larkin to a nice step forward this year. He's got too much talent and I think the system and lack of talent around him has hurt his development. As talent level on this team rises I expect he will keep getting better
what a goal. Keep Bertuzzi!
