here we go

No Zucker = fail

tyratoku 04-04-2013 01:10 PM

So I'd guess:
Parise - Koivu - Poms
Bouchard - Granlund - Setoguchi
Coyle - Brodizak - Clutterbuck
Rupp - Konopka - Mitchell

Maybe switching Bouchard and Coyle?

Dampland 04-04-2013 01:11 PM

hmmmm, would have preferred Zucker..... Granlund has not impressed in the AHL this stint. Not sure how they expect him to do anything in NHL.

Lapa 04-04-2013 01:11 PM

What if we try Poms with Granlund? Seto to the 1st line.

Agreed. Fletcher must know that the roster can be expanded to 23 players, right?

Paul Bunyan 04-04-2013 01:11 PM

Interested to see how he does here now. This is your big shot kid, take it.

Jarick 04-04-2013 01:12 PM

I wonder if they keep Coyle at center?

Honestly I would try:

Parise - Koivu - Pominville
Granlund - Coyle - Setoguchi
Bouchard - Brodziak - Clutterbuck
Rupp - Konopka - Mitchell

Mikael Granlund called up for #mnwild; Guess is he'll play center & this will keep Coyle on wing; Heatley "out," says Fletcher. No timeframe
I'd rather Coyle at Center right now.

Lapa 04-04-2013 01:13 PM

Russo thinks Granlund will play center.

I would put Prosser on the next flight to Houston to be honest.

God, our defense is just terrible after that first pairing.

Honestly, I'd rather start out with

Parise-Koivu-Coyle

Pominville-Granlund-Setoguchi

Bouchard - Brodziak - Clutz

R - K - M

i like that, got Poms to cover for granny's lapses.

Jarick 04-04-2013 01:15 PM

Pominville's a right winger.

JJTT 04-04-2013 01:16 PM

yay fbj is back

Exactly the lines I was thinking of. Granlund has looked better on the wing and adds the playmaking ability to that line. Call up Zucker and that 2nd line is all scorers and no passers, although Seto has some good playmaking ability when he uses it.

I like these. A 2nd line of Bouchard - FBJ - Seto is going to get owned in it's own zone.

He's carried the load for Hodgson's "defense" all year, so it wouldn't be too much to ask of him.

I think he was recalled because of his center abilities. If we needed a winger only, it would have been Zucker, imo.

Sportserie 04-04-2013 01:20 PM

I am glad this happened. I have a good feeling about this call up and an even stronger feeling that he maintains a spot even after Cullen comes back and he'd be shifted to another line.

Pulling for him! :handclap:

tomgilbertfan 04-04-2013 01:21 PM

Lets hope Granlund pulls a Coyle and that stint back in the AHL helped.
