I'm just impressed Fat Elvis can skate.

Well that is really not good. This is Kindl's chance and I hope he runs with it. Really thought he improved a decent amount last year, excited to see what he looks like this year and he has been playing the whole lockout so he should come in with good form.

Hope he and Brunner iron this out right away, not a great situation. Doesn't seem to like Wings players too much, maybe the reason he joined.

As with all Carlo injury threads this must follow.

Watching Brendan Smith this year in GR, it's hard to miss his offensive skill.

but this dude is careless as can be in his own zone. Unless this guy finds some discipline in his game, fans are going to have a love-hate relationship with this guy

In a lot of ways, Smith reminds me of Quincey. He's more slick and smarter, offensively. But their games are similar.

I don't see it at all, tbh. I see him more like a young Kronner right now, very mobile, but physical along the lines of Stuart, just more reckless than Stu, who generally made good decisions on when to be physical. Heck, it's been a while so I'll have to actually watch some games. He's far more aggressive offensively, but also makes things happen, than Quincey.

Nah. Smith can skate - that makes up for almost everything.

I'm a huge Lashoff fan, and really believe he'd flourish in a shutdown/PK role. He's very solid in the defensive zone, poised under pressure, and can have a bit of a nasty streak. Hell, pair him with Smith and let them play the 3rd pair for a bit.

That's what I'm seeing having watched the Griffins this season. Maybe it's the "I should be in Detroit" syndrome, but he's been making some pretty rough turnovers in every zone. Sure he's got fantastic offensive chops, and his physical game is good, but he's going to be in for a rude awakening if he doesn't make some better decisions when he's not carrying the puck.

I like Smith, but I have to agree I see him make more bad decisions than I am comfortable with.

I am expecting a rough year for Smith, but that shouldn't surprise anyone. It's his rookie year.

Smith makes me think of Campbell. Gobs of skill, runs all over the place, and occasionally catches someone with their head down.

Benefited by a shortened season, thankfully.

He's still too inconsistent for my liking...
