"You know how Kyle Flood still has a job? Yeah, all Jourdan."
Larkin 1G, 1A, 1 hit, 1/1 on faceoffs, 13+ minutes, Wings win 4-0
Copp 3 hits, 3/4 on faceoffs, 7+ minutes, Jets win 3-1
So, great opening game for Larkin, solid one for Copp
CORRECTION (thanks to BrownJuggernaut and kurpit): not Copp's debut; he played Thursday night and one game last season
Just got into town for homecoming. Ate a $17 sandwich at Zingerman's after waiting in line for an hour. Got a brownie to go. Now I'm watching "The Big Chill" in my hotel room. It certainly is an Ann Arbor kind of night. Go Blue!

If he and Larkin both stay up most of the year, that's pretty persuasive proof that their choices were wise. I hope they do; good for them making the show on opening night.
EDIT: The Jets beat the Bruins handily, and Copp had a nice assist on their fifth goal. Nice start.
EDIT again: saw on Twitter from Jeffrey Weinstein that Copp's first point was at the end of last season, which I had forgotten or never knew. I edited the thread title to fix, and my apologies to COY if I am the source of their tweet that Weinstein corrected.
Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill says Dylan Larkin has made the team out of training camp. Wow.
