Five Griffins to join Wings

According to Michael Zuidema of the Grand Rapids Press, the Red Wings will have five new faces soon ... goalie Jimmy Howard, defenseman Jakub Kindl and forwards Ville Leino, Aaron Downey and Justin Abdelkader.

Interestingly, Darren McCarty was not named in the story. With the loyalty shown both ways and the fact that McCarty helped the Wings in the playoffs last season, I'm surprised that D-Mac -- who wore an 'A' for the Griffins in the playoffs -- won't be recalled.

Also, no word as to when the Griffins will join the Wings.

leino should make the line up for game 5 regardless of rafi/drapes playing. sit malts or kocpecky IF draper can play too if no draper sit malts and go with leino-helm-kopecky 4th line. also they obviously dont have confidence in meech dont expect him around for long. lol id like to see kindl get a shot with ericsson over lebda. im really hoping to see rafi back in the D THAT would be awesome! GO WINGS! HEY HEY HOCKEYTOWN!

leino helm and whom? That'll be iffy if Kopecky has a concussion following that ill advised fight the other night. Kudos for trying the unexpected to rally the team, but he should go with his strengths. Fighting clearly is not one of them.
