Blake sent to Milwaukee

sighthndlady 12-13-2011 03:12 PM

No surprise there. He wasn't playing all that great before the injury. Let him get his confidence back.

Roman Yoshi 12-13-2011 03:15 PM

Not a surprise at all.

TootooTrain 12-13-2011 03:27 PM

Glad he can get some proper icetime now. Wasn't doing much good here.

Soundgarden 12-13-2011 03:41 PM

Can only be a good thing.

NoNecksCurse 12-13-2011 04:11 PM

love it. he needs more developing... I feel like he was rushed in the first place. and he has pretty much been invisible at times.

worstfaceoffmanever 12-13-2011 04:13 PM

Good move, should have happened a while ago.

Paranoid Android 12-13-2011 04:18 PM

Glad to hear he is healthy :handclap: Now go forth and light up the AHL!

Should have happened a month or two ago, if not before.

Two bodies go down, none up yet. Will we see a call-up or just save the $$$?

BigFatCat999 12-13-2011 05:36 PM

Who would you call up?

I would leave it as is. Just asking what others would do.

Agreed. Should've been sent there before game 1

AtlantaWhaler 12-13-2011 06:43 PM

Two in one day makes me think there's a move being planned.

that was my first thought, but it could be just a matter of getting everyone where they need to be before the holiday roster freeze

101st_fan 12-13-2011 06:48 PM

Blake needed the time in Milwaukee before his injury and not playing in a few weeks surely didn't improve his game. I'm not expecting a move nor a call up before the team goes on the road. The Ads just did 3 in a row last weekend and have another back to back to back this weekend ... they need a few healthy bodies there just in case as well.

Good call. Forgot about that freeze.

Joe T Choker 12-28-2011 09:39 AM

So that's why we called up gabby ... Blake back to Milwaukee

cjerina 12-28-2011 09:50 AM

Can we send him to Cincy instead? Robert Slaney and his 0 pts in 6 games has looked better than BG's time here in Mke.

AtlantaWhaler 12-28-2011 09:52 AM

With the exception of any injuries, hopefully it's for the remainder of the season. Kid needs some time.

66Falconboy 12-28-2011 02:38 PM

Ominous quote from Trotz..."It’s a real career move for him so that he can get his game going, rather than being in the NHL; if we keep him here all year and he doesn’t produce, next year he’ll be trying to do it with someone else or in the minors. We still think he can be a good player, so we’re trying to get him on track.”

Here's the link from Smashville 24/7. Nice article. http://www.smashville247.net/2011/12...nhl-debut.html

This is "strike two" in my opinion for Geoffrion.

tserberis* 12-28-2011 06:09 PM

Clearly not good enough so far...
He better gets his stuff together if he wants to play in the NHL.

barrytrotzsneck 12-29-2011 11:50 AM

He's made a stay in the NHL based on hometown and one isolated offensive explosion. This is the right move.

zellthemedic 12-29-2011 12:26 PM

Very, very, very surprised that this happened.

...Just kidding.

101st_fan 12-29-2011 12:52 PM

He played his way down to the Ads. If he gets another shot at the Preds roster is entirely up to him. He needs to play his way back up ... he won't get back any other way.
