Seems perfect, a tad sheltered but still with talented players and plenty of minutes. Good for Järnkrok, hope he can make the best of it!

Wilson moving to wing and Spaling to center the checking line?

23 shifts, 16:20 of ice time. PP and PK time

assist on Stalbergs goal.

Id call that a pretty good first game...

Yeah oddly enough I'm guessing Trotz was happy with the guy to give him that much ice time in his first game.

I was impressed with what I saw, didn't seem to be awe struck at all. I like that he seems to always be moving forward, if he has the puck he's looking to get it to the net some how, unlike most of the guys who just skate around in a circle til they lose the puck and never even look up at the net.

He went one on one with Stajan in our defensive zone on his first or second shift and did so effectively. From what TV showed, he wasn't chasing the puck and looked in position most of the night. His efforts offensively resulted in an assist.

The one aspect that lacked tonight was his performance at the dot. 41% isn't exactly stellar.

Really though if you are going to be lacking in your first game, that probably the best place for it to be. Just considering how much quicker and bigger the NHL is compared to what he has been playing in I'm willing to give him a pass on that for right now.

The fact that the speed of the game didn't seem to blow his mind is the best thing I saw imo. I know Smith looked like a deer in headlights for a while when he started.

as much as it will suck for milwaukee, the kid needs to stay up the rest of the season… and hopefully we stay healthy and he gets to play with real NHL players…

and for the record, if 101 had to dig all the way to face-off stats to find something negative about jarnkrok tonight… it means he had a hell of a game!

Watched the game tonight, kid looked great. He's going to be a stud. Congrats again on bending over our GM.

Nashville is becoming Detroit 2,0. You're gonna attract a lot of Swedish fans when Forsberg gets a sure spot along with Horner, Stalberg, Ekholm. Then there's Aberg & Cehlin, though I don't Think the latter will ever be an NHL:er.

Am I missing anyone?

Next season...

Forsberg-Ironhook-Horner

Shooter, playmaker, semi-powerforward/sniper.

Could work?

Don't think there is any way to know right now. My guess is it will depend on injuries and things like that and if he manages to stay out of the Trotz doghouse, which I think he will being he seems to play defense as well.

I guess he'll get under 9 games this season but get a real shot next year.

He didn't sign an ELC till he was 20 so the ELC slide rule doesn't apply to him. It doesn't matter how many games he plays we can't extend his ELC a year by going under 9 games.

Sissons is under the slide rule though and he's gone over 9 games already but I don't think it matters that much with him.

I could see

Stalberg-Hook-Forsberg.

The question becomes in Iron hook's d-play as good as his offensive play?

There was very little "rookie" factor in his game. He looked like he belonged, played in all situations, and did some nice things in both ends of the ice. I don't know if he'll be up for the rest of the year, but I think he's a safe assumption for next year's roster.

It's a shame that two lines that finally looked effective were basically rolling with donut tires on a wing--Bourque and Nystrom.

Funny how Stalberg finally gets to play with a decent center and has one of his best games of the year...

He made a few nice defensive reads\breakups and got some PK time--so good as advertised.

Jarnkrok is 22 and he's played in the SEL for several seasons and the AHL this season so he isn't as much of a rookie as Forsberg is. With only 11 forwards last night he was going to get more TOI and Trotz seemed to want to see what he could do and let him play in all situations. I doubt he would have played PK if Eaves, Spaling and Gaustad weren't all hurt. I was happy with his first game but it was Calgary. We'll really see how ready he is against Chicago tomorrow night.

Eaves should be a permascratch at this point. Let Sissons and Hook finish the year for some experience, and I'd even like to see Salomaki get a look before the end of the year.

Sure, that's been Stalberg's problem all along. Played up and down lines in Chicago and Nashville. Finally a rookie in his first NHL game unlocks Stalberg's potential.

I hear you.

That said, Stalberg with Gaustad and Clune or other 4th line fill ins is NOT going to enhance his game. Nobody to keep up with his speed, no one to feed him the puck, no one good in the transition game. Just about the only way that helps his game is if Gaustad makes it in front of the net to bang home one of his rebounds. Unfortunately, Gaustad is too slow to keep up.

Poor line chemistry.

Granted, Stalberg hasn't been very effective, irregardless of his line. Then again, he hasn't been given that much of a chance to develop chemistry on a new team, new system, and once healthy. Keep in mind he missed TC time with a groin injury and his TOI initially suffered accordingly.

I am not convinced Trotz knows how to use Stalberg's style of play. He is an attacking forward, not a matchup based defensive forward.

Just my 2 cents ...
