Bring up Utica

I like how Archie got a couple games, looks like Jensen is going to maybe come up and get a game.

I really hope this continues, someone starts to rip it up in the AHL and they get a callup to get a chance with big club. Torts seems to reward good play as long as you don't make mistakes.

Grenier come up next??

My opinion is that it is a better option than booth with his play of late

Jens has been playing well for a few games sure, but grenier has been doing it all season. i'd like to hear who coach green thinks is better defensively. another angle could be since Nick had such a rough start this year they want to call him up to continue to build on his recent confidence. who knows; guess we'll see.

Torts allows mistakes. That's were the player learns. AV didn't.

I like our team play as of late but I feel we have similar player size and styles with Richardson/Dalpe/Santorelli/Hansen/Higgins I would think it would be great to add a bigger fast skating forward like Grenier/Lain as forechecker or Jensen on the power play specialist (or outside the box Fox?) I think our body checking could use the help (because Hansen and Kesler can't shoulder the load but will be hitting as well as ever by playoffs) see opposing benches screaming any time Kass or Archibald skate into the nuetral zone..I like it. :)

Good time for a call up.

Good development = 1 prospect per year.

If you include Tanev and Lack, plus Hodgson/Kassian. It's looking pretty good.

From there, if one of Schroeder, Corrado, Jensen, Grenier, etc... can become full time NHLers. And next season, add Guance, Hovat, Shinkaruk, Kenins, etc to the list......... Puts VAN on pace for 2 prospects per year.

It's not too far fetched. Prospects need chances. Hopefully we see a lot more of them in the second half of the season.

Coach Green has said Jensen is doing all the right things in a tough spot (different linemates, asked for defensive responsibility, etc.) while Grenier has to work on a number of holes before he's ready to move up. Jensen would have a better chance at success in the NHL at this point.

But a few threads about this:
