Bahl is definitely in the NHL Regulars bucket

I’m not so sure. Dude seems to play almost primarily on the 3rd pairing in Utica. At his size and age that’s a little telling.

Michigan beat AIC 5-3, and advanced in the tournament. On to the regional finals, with a chance to go to the Frozen Four. One assist for Luke Hughes, and a goal for Ethan Edwards. I watched the whole game and Luke was fantastic. Had an awesome spin-o-rama move to set up a great chance, and hit the post on another play. Kid is just as electric as his brothers. Thought he played a sound game defensively, too.

think luke makes the jump to ahl or stays at school?

My thought all along was he would play 2 years at Michigan and then go straight to the NHL. But if he’s not going to stay 4 years anyway, what more is there for him to do at Michigan? Maybe the AHL is a better idea for next year.

I’d have him stay at Michigan so he can get reps running the first powerplay. Also to hit the gym, beef up a bit. Don’t need some Geertsen-type AHLer taking runs at him.

I suspect whenever Luke joins the Devils, he’ll bypass the AHL altogether.

Holtz in a sudden scoring funk…no goals and only two assists over his last 7 GP.  Maybe some fatigue?

holtz should be good. i'm not worried about him. when he's nhl ready is the story. i am a big disbeliever in rushing kids. 

No not worried about him…this is his real first slump of what’s been a fine first AHL season.  I think he spends a lot of next season with the big club, but not all.  I’m thinking about 60 games and about 15 goals.

Slump over.

Well, Luke and his Wolverines are headed to the Frozen Four. 

the next game is only in 10 days and the championship finals in 12. Seems like a long break between games to keep the momentum going.

Short interview from this year. I like his plans for the future right at the end. Might have to change those now. 

 

Hobey Baker finalist as well.

I was doing some reading on this Halonen guy and apparently there’s a Blake Pietila on his team just like the Blake Pietila we drafted 10 years ago meaning there are two unrelated hockey players named Blake Pietila. How is that even possible

That is odd. 

I am now going to have to Google to see where our Blake is now.

Is it even more odd that our Blake Pietila also went to college at Michigan Tech as well........

It’s like the two Sebastian Aho’s. It’s some multiverse sh!t.

I did not realize that. They HAVE to be related then… or Michigan has a lot of Blake’s.

Ever watch "Fringe"?  That was a big part of the show (two parallel universes where each "Earth" was very similar, but not identical).  

There were dopplegangers in each world of course...in the case of one primary character "Walter", he was "Walter" in our world, with fans calling the other version of him "Walternate".  And the Olivia character in that other world was called "Faux-livia" by fans.

It was actually a pretty cool show...the list of differences between the worlds was pretty in-depth, especially in the US (some states were different, the Statue of Liberty never turned green from patima, blimps are still a common form of travel, etc).

No, but I watched a few other shows that had a multiverse element. Maybe I will check that one out.
