At least our top prospects, every single one of them with the real potential to be better than Suter and Parise, are getting some quality time with the Griffins and showing that they're simply too good for the AHL even now.
I'm very excited about Gustav Nyquist, possibly a Zetterberg 2.0 with better skating ability, scored a couple of goals and then clinched the shootout in the 4-3 win against Toronto. Tatar, also a bright prospect, scored the other one. These guys know that they need to step up as Kenny's failures at the market has created serious opportunities for them to make a name for themselves.
Lidstrom, Fedorov, Kozlov, Konstantinov, Draper, Datsyuk, Zetterberg and many others did the same not so long ago. We gotta rely on what works and what works in Detroit is our formidable scouting and farm system.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
