Our puck posession needs timing and chemistry more than ever, because there's so many guys in new duties.

We have to play and adjust, then we see if we can win and win enough. Let them play 20 games and then see where we are. If we are out of the playoff race, I don't think it's a big deal for Holland after that to bring some kids up.

But bringing those kids up right does not solve this team problem. It just hurts building those chemistries. We have to solve these problems with current guys.

Let's see what happens. Be patient. If the sky is gonna fall, then it falls. But we have to give some time for the team. There's too much talent in this team to be that bad.
Agree with this and on top of that it basically allows the Griffins to seal a playoff spot assuming all goes right. If the Wings are bad at that point they can trade some guys and call them up for the last 20 games. Have them on the clear day roster in Grand Rapids and bang even Smith goes back and that team probably cake walks to the at least the Western conference finals allowing them two additional months of growth.
