I'm trying to decide whether Brennan leading the team in goals is a good thing or a bad thing.

As someone who doesn't follow Detroit prospects too closely, it feels like those two have been prospects for awhile now. I could look this up to see, but I'm feeling lazy at the moment.

This is Tatar's 4th year in the AHL but he's only 21, just started really early. Nyquist came out of college and this is his 2nd year in the AHL. They'd both be in Detroit if not for the lockout, kinda like some of the Sabres guys.

After posting, I remembered that I thought I heard that while visiting the main boards.

Not a surprising result. -3 night for Hodgson and several giveaways.. Foligno with 1 shot on goal.

Curious decision to start Knapp tonight with a back-to-back this weekend against Bingo. Figured it'd be Leggio tonight with a split in the back-to-back. Now Rolston is going to play Leggio in both this weekend. Good to see the organization's coaches are both poor at handling netminders.

Almost all of his decisions to start Knapp have been bad. A Friday night after a weeks rest. On a Saturday after he started the night before against a good Toronto team. He's even worse than Ruff handling the goalies. What a drop off from Dineen to Rolston.

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.

in reference to the other poster saying Girgensons offensive potential is much higher than Rankin's.

I was just saying I don't think that's getting ahead of ourselves.

You are correct, bad choice of words on my part.

Funny how you leave out the horrendous turnover that Girgensons had at the blue line on GR 2nd goal AFTER Hodgsons made an incredible defensive play.

Can't take two penalties in four minutes after you tie the game at 2. That's something bad teams do. They lost their momentum and gave it right back to the Griffs. Not surprisingly, GR scored the game-winner on the second PP.

Small sample size for Hodgson so far, but one AHL goal? Especially with the amount of PP time he gets, he has to do better. For a guy who potted almost 20 in the NHL as a 21-22 year old, no reason he shouldn't be on a 30-goal pace down in Rochester. Adam's turned his game around of late, it's time for Hodgson to start lighting the lamp, as well.

Foligno too. He needs to play better. Non existent at times offensively. I imagine the fight last night was some of that frustration.

Ooof on that Girgensons turnover coming out of the zone. And I'm not sure what exactly McNabb was doing on that first goal, either.

Pretty sweet primary assists by Adam and Hodgson.

Regardless, Knapp wasn't the problem last night.

Well, that puck was on edge and still got into Hodgson's skates... just saying.

This. And it won't be the last time they take bad penalties either.
