Makes it strange when you look at eliteprospects, because that will count on his years played and it will on other hockey sites. Basically Sheahan has an excellent chance of in 15 years when you hear he has been in the league that long you think huh? But two of them will be two games total and the third will be partial time, remains to be seen how much.

I also find it funny that we have Jake Paterson and Jake Patterson both playing Goalie at the camp.

Who's attending this to give us some updates on what they're seeing on the ice?

Have you seen Yakubowski play at all?

Seems to be a gritty guy with a bit of a scoring touch as well.

It bring back nostalgic memories of how the wings' teams were built back in the days


They invited a Chara height player, if that player can skate somewhat I don't see why they shouldn't offer him a contract.

It's all downhill from here, guys:

Quote:
most of their prospects are undersized question marks.
Quote:
almost every one of them is a project that has an obvious flaw (usually size).
Quote:
Detroit prospects have been vastly overrated over the years, its getting silly
Quote:
Detroit should count themselves lucky if even two of these guys end up being as good as Filppula.
Quote:
Detroits prospect pool is very over rated.
Quote:
Detroit's drafting is overrated
Quote:
Detroits prospects always find a way to get overrated.
Quote:
Detroits prospects are so overrated its not even funny..
Quote:
alot of second and third line depth prospects and a goalie prospect.
Quote:
3 maybe 4 of them will be NHLers with 1 or 2 of them being good
Quote:
Everyone else has a prospect poll, too. Detroit's isn't special.
Quote:
Detroit's prospect pool is among the most overrated in the league
Quote:
Most likely the majority of them are going to flop anyways.

It's happened they're so overrated that they've become underrated.

A team full of second line players and second pairing dmen is a lot better than a team with a good first line and no depth and one stud d pairing. I like our pool.

I think they'd tell you that

is too optimistic. We ought to console ourselves with the fact that most won't even make the NHL.

Homer will be at camp to teach net-front skills.

http://www.freep.com/article/2013071...S05/307100029/

Quote:
Holmstrom will teach net-front skills to the Wings’ up-and-comers, providing everything from classroom demonstrations to on-ice examples. The job was borne last month after Holmstrom ran it by general manager Ken Holland, who responded with immediate enthusiasm.

“I’ve been watching lots of games, and seriously, nobody knows how to be in front of net,” Holmstrom said Tuesday. “They go there, but then they move. They don’t screen, they don’t want to pay the price, because it’s not glamorous. And you need a big heart.”
Honestly hope this parlays into a pre-season job as well. Would be nice to have him there teaching the points and people should listen intently when he talks about exactly how to do this.

Make this happen. That sounds like an awesome idea by Homer. I think I like the idea of Abby on Datsyuk and Z's line if Homer can teach him.

I'm all for homer teaching our current and future players how to be a real net-front presence. Just make sure Kronwall doesn't attend that class

Awesome. I'd take Homer back for 3 more years over Cleary for 1 more.

Janmark has really good English skills. Almost that Landeskog/Lidstrom style zero accent English. Little bit of an accent sneaks in there at times.

Lots of the Scandinavians have pretty exceptional English skills. Although as you point out this is even better than I was expecting.
