Actually a little disappointing for Sproul. His team won 8-0

I'll reserve judgment when I see him on NA ice in GR next year. I'm not going on size. I liked what I saw at the WJC and his skating wasn't that bad.

And holy crap, look at McKee's PIM numbers

Imo, best scoring is scoring when it matters the most. In tight games. I would not care less who scored those goals after 2-0.

Pretty much this. I'd like him to finish the season well so he comes with confidence though.

Pulkkinen, a fourth-round draft pick in 2010, is in the first year of a three-year entry-level contract with the Red Wings. Andersson said it’s too early to say whether Red Wings management will bring Pulkkinen to North America next season.

“If he takes off, makes the national team (for the IIHF world championship), all kinds of things can to happen,” he said. “We’ll just wait and see and take it from there.”
This part caught my eye. I actually know someone who's rather close to him and according to them, last year he thought he might be going to GR already for this season.

On the last quote, I think it's very unlikely that he makes the WC.

EDIT. He scored in the first period of tonight's game. He had no goals in 5 previous games.

And that was it for his scoring, Jokerit collapsed again, 3-0 to 3-5...

I am a little confused, Nill has already said Pulkkinen is coming over... Now if they are talking directly on to the Wings, I don't see that happening, but they have said for months now that the plan is for Pulkkinen to come over next year.

They never seem to confirm their intentions before they actually happen.. And Babcock, Holland, Andersson or Nill are rarely on the same page when it comes to commenting on players for that matter. In this case, I think Andersson simply doesn't want to say too much before anything's set.

Hey I like Andersson but I think he just flat out misspoke on this. I know he is the head of European scouting but when the assistant GM and the GM of the Griffins says the following.

Quote:
Jarnkrok and Pulkkinen will be in North America next season, competing for a spot on the Red Wings roster.

“Let them come to camp and see where they fit in,'' Nill said. “If they're ready, good. If not, they'll go to Grand Rapids.''
I take that as the plan. They have really been saying it since the summer. For those interested they also run down the other big European based players in the article that was done at the end of December.

I think there's little doubt what the plan is. But Andersson never confirms anything no matter what, which isn't his job to do either. For example, Backman signs a new deal in the SEL and Andersson says something like "he'll probably need at least another year in Sweden". That is the typical Andersson answer.

McKee had an assist, 3 SOG and was +2 last night. I believe he'll miss today's game due to the suspension he got last week.

Goonery aside, it feels like McKee is having a fairly solid hockey season too. Guy is reaching towards last year's totals in half the games.

My one concern is he was supposed to play for WMU this season. I feel like getting into a league where he will have to rely more on his hockey talent should help him improve as a prospect. Is he still slated to go the college route?

That was a rumor. He was always supposed to go to WMU in 2013-2014 season.

Good news. I enjoy the fighting but the only way he's going to have any shot making it as a prospect is brushing up his defensive game. Tough to do when you are getting suspended all the time.

I think it makes sense when you consider it from the perspective of McKee trying to show the Wings he's what they lack. He knows he's going to go several years without being able to scrap (at least regularly), so he's got to show the Wings that he can be the legit tough guy right now. After this year, it's going to be 4 years straight of work on his actual hockey game.

I'm pretty sure they knew what they were getting when they drafted McKee, so I'm not convinced they wanted him to get suspended a bunch to prove what a hard ass he is in the USHL. The most important thing for him is to prove his defensive capabilities. I have no problem with him fighting and getting suspended all the time in the USHL because it's not much of a league as far as further development goes. I am glad to hear he'll be in the NCAA next year because he'll get a very good opportunity to develop his defensive game at WMU and Murray is a very good coach.
