So it was Pulkkien over Frk in the end?

I would not be surprised to see Tampa maybe grab Frk to play with Drouin again if they have room. I would have waived Pulky instead.

Sound like the right bunch to me.  Frk is much, much better than he was last year at this time.  If he continues to improve, he might be a call up or earn a promotion next season.  My suspicion is, though, he is a career AHL player as is Callahan.Jensen, Lashoff, the same deal.  Tangradi is, based on seeing him play several games several years ago, is a waste of a roster spot anywhere.  He is a limited player who does show some abrasive qualities.

Anyway, the roster for the start of the season is close to complete.  I expect AA to be up on the big team.  I like the 8 defensemen idea until we find out what Kronwall can or cannot do.  Perhaps the best that could happen with him would be LTIR for the rest of his contract?

I still expect Pulkinen to be waived before the season starts.  Either Mantha or Little Bert could be up in his stead.

Now is the time to waive players and hope the slip through waiver wave. Still on the bubble - Sproul? I didn’t see if he was sent down yet. Oullette as well. Marchenko should be in. I could see Frk getting picked up by Colorado to reunite with Nate Mckinnon.

I couldn’t remember who Frk’s other line mate was.

I thought Frk looked real good in his last game. That shot he scored from a pass in his feet was a thing of beauty. He has size over Pulk. They are basically the same player otherwise. My guess is that they thought Frk had a better chance of clearing based on NHL experience (or lack thereof).

I am more into the GR team right now than I am the RedWings.

I didn’t get a chance to see the Game last night. I read the comments from the game and I got the impression that Glendening was on the ice for a PP? is there any truth to that or did I get the wrong impression?

Frk is the one that stands out to me as well.  Hope he clears.

That’s just it… you would think he would have to earn it by scoring more during 5 on 5.

so he was or wasn’t?
