Not trying to troll and I know that Red deserves as many more years as he wants, but I think he has stated next will be his last.
Just wanted to provide an update on someone who looks to be a good option to have in the final candidate pool.
Not much on Mel Pearson, but wouldn't it be something if Michigan Tech won it all?
I know all of our basketball tournament brackets are incinerated so here's your 2nd chance. USCHO hosts a pick'em every year for some modest prizes, but the fun is in the bracket. You think picking basketball is hard? I've had years where my coin flip bracket did better than my actual one for the hockey tournament.
In case you're wondering how to pick, BCInterruption has had a few good posts on trends for teams and past tournaments:
I've got Tech, Providence, Minnesota, and Minnesota-Mankato in the Frozen Four with Mankato winning it all. The tournament starts Friday.
7:30 on FSD, still no Datsyuk. Should be a win for the Wings, if Arizona keeps tanking.
I'm drinking Oberon (missed it yesterday) and maybe a Guinness later.
The Red Wings apparently are going to let Larkin decide whether he wants to begin his pro career now or later.
Larkin, 18, could leave and immediately play for the Grand Rapids Griffins in the American Hockey League or wait and start fresh in Wings training camp next season.
I thought someone said here that he would have to jump straight to the NHL if he left now, but apparantly the Wings are saying that he could join the Griffs for their post season run right now if he wants to.
From the comment section at Kukla's Korner, in response to the AHL rule about North American Players not being allowed to play in the AHL until they are 20 years old...
That rule applies to players drafted out of the CHL (OHL, WHL, QMJHL), not college players. And doesn’t care about your nationality, just where you play when you’re drafted.
So apparantly Larkin CAN leave as soon as he chooses.
