No idea why Veleno is below Gagner. Incoming 15+ min per game Gagner.

Maybe the 2nd year we try it he’ll get above 20pts

Anyone who has DDK + Hronek above Led+ Seider has water in their brain. DDK is Errorson 2.0 and Hronek is at best a 2nd pair D, he will never be anything more. He can’t even QB a power play like Brad Stuart could and he was barely average.

HSJ tweet,

Red Wings have 14 forwards practicing this morning. With carrying 8 D, 2G, have to get down to 13 to submit 23-man roster by 5 p.m. Assignment to minors today doesn’t mean player won’t be recalled for Thursday opener.

Seider is still a rookie. Should we press him into top line duties like Hronek? Let’s take a chill pill.

Veleno 4th line wing is a waste.

Rowney-Stephens-Veleno

Since they need to make one more cut at forward, hopefully Veleno’s just “placeholding” for Smith or Namestnikov because they’re dinged up. It would be an absolute travesty to put him on the wing on the 4th line in Detroit instead of at center on the 1st line in GR (with Berggren and, hopefully, either Barber or Hirose on the wings).

Bertuzzi-Larkin-Raymond

It sure looks like Raymond is going to start the season in Detroit. That should be a fun line to watch.

Seider is better than DDK and Leddy is better than Hronek.

You don’t get better playing against the B team. If you want to elevate your game you need to play against the best. That’s what Leddy is for.

Hronek is a poor man’s Kronwall who isn’t physical. So actually he’s worse than a poor man’s version of Kronwall.

I think people get hung up on thinking Hronek is better than he is because he’s a big fish in a small pond.

You can easily tell there’s a night and day’s difference between Leddy and Hronek.
