Grand Rapids has been blanked in their last two games. That has me concerned that they may bust out tonight.

Also, sounds like Rankin is playing tonight:

Kevin Oklobzija‏@kevinoDandC

#Amerks injury update: RW Evan Rankin likely will play Wednesday, making only trip to home state to face Grand Rapids Griffins (more)...
I'd imagine Parker gets removed from the lineup if Rankin can go.

Nice top line. If we could turn line changes off, like in a video game, I would be happy.

I probably will. I just got caught in a weird situation. I told my girlfriend I was going to the game tonight and she should come, because afterwards I was going to take her to a bar I had been telling her about. She said yes. Problem is that on Monday she made plans with a friend to hang out yesterday, but then she rescheduled to today (This was after I told her about the game and after she had told a different friend we would go on a double date with her).

Also a friend of mine said he was going to go about a week ago and said he would buy the tickets. I said yes but he forgot and he didn't even think we were going yesterday when I text him. Add onto that if his roommate came he is underage and we couldn't get into the bar. Adding even more, now his girlfriend is coming back to campus for the night and he might not even go.

This is where things get tricky. I would want to get there around 6-6:30 to watch warmups, but my girlfriend doesn't get off of work until 5pm or later. Frankly I need a ride to the stadium since my sister already took the car and went back to my parents for the holidays early. If none of them go that's fine I could take the bus down, but classes have ended so the buses only run every hour and they stop at 7pm. I could ride the bus downtown to get to the game, but not back (I am not paying for a cab to get back). Plus I would then have noone to go to the bar with afterwards.

Either way I've got about 5 hours to figure out whats going on or I probably wont be going to the game.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Rankin slide in that spot. He played well with Foligno and Hodgson earlier this year. Rankin has more offensive talent that Girgensons. But Girgensons wasn't out of place on that line, either.

Yet another example of how girlfriends complicate everything...

Single guy: "I'm going to the game tonight."

Guy with girlfriend: *See quoted post*

Chicks man...

I give you permission to go solo. Enjoy the game.

I've taken a lot of people to their first hockey game and they fell in love. I've also gone to a few games solo (when I had RIT ST's, and a Sabres preseason game in Rochester - whoa, a while ago).

He maybe better offensively NOW at ahl level,but offensive upside is definitley bigger for Girgensons.

I think he's talking about just this game in particular. You may be right on that, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

I agree right now, but we're probably in trouble if Girgensons tops out as an Evan Rankin in the offensive zone. Nothing against Rankin, he's been plenty good in the AHL but I'd like our 1st round pick to have NHL quality scoring upside.

End of 1st period. 2-1 GR. Shots 15-6 GR.

1. GR Glendening, (1) (Grant, Callahan), 2:49 --- goalmouth scramble, rebound potted.
1. RCH Varone, (3) (Adam, Mancari), 8:17 (PP) --- nice pass from Adam sets up Varone.
1. GR Hoggan, (3) , 10:59 --- Knapp without stick, beat high.

So far Girgensons, JGL and Foligno have been the best players. Zemgus just hasnt been able to finish. Adam rang one off the pipe and McNabb has blocked a couple shots. I cant stand Brennan. He comes up into the play and rushe the puck way to much. The second GR goal was pretty lame as Knapp had a defenders stick when his was ripped out from him. Should have been interfearence even before but what can you do?

You guys are in for a treat. You get to watch Nyquist and Tatar make 500000 fancy dangles and passes while in perfect scoring chances, including breakaways, instead of just shooting the puck!

The poster was speaking about right now for the Amerks at the AHL level. Offensive ability at the AHL level and offensive ability at the NHL level are not one in the same, so Rankin helps out the Amerks now more than Girgensons. I doubt anyone would debate that Rankin, an undrafted free agent on an AHL deal, has higher NHL upside than Girgensons, an NHL 1st round pick on an ELC.
