Klasen Reassigned…Again

Looks like more tough love from the Nashville Predators for Linus Klasen.

Just an hour after I ranted about how Klasen should have played in southern California instead of Wade Belak, the Admirals goal scoring spark plug got a return trip to Wisconsin.

When I interviewed Klasen after the Predators morning skate on Wednesday, he seemed to know this move was inevitable.  More seasoning in the AHL is what Barry Trotz and Nashville are calling for as the Predators top scorers slowly return to the line up.

Klasen did get an average of nearly 13 minutes of ice time in the three games he appeared in for the Predators, though he registered no points.

On the bright side, this is a nice perk for those of us making the trek to the Bradley Center this weekend, getting to see Klasen again lace up for the Admirals.  If he dresses Saturday night, there will be an awesome match up of highly skilled, developing players, with Nazem Kadri playing for the Toronto Marlies and Klasen skating for Milwaukee.

So Roundtable, Are you excited or disappointed to see Linus Klasen back in Milwaukee?

  1. not disappointed at all condering he was just sitting in the pressbox, but who will help Klasen to provide offense in admirals now when mueller is gone? The stat gap is pretty huge…

  2. Was hoping to see him and Mueller on a line just once to make a 3rd scoring line like some thought they would. Apparently Belak’s 2 – 3 minutes are more important. Does mean Spaling should be back though, but to leave them with no extra forwards makes me wonder if they have other plans. Maybe a Halischuck call-up?
    But very happy to see Linus back here for the weekend games.

  3. Glad to have Linus back! I don’t expect the Admirals to score 5 goals every game, especially without Klasen and Mueller.

  4. I’d like to see him on a line with Halischuk. Thang would be good too. Good call on Mueller-in-training. He has been playing his best hockey of the season lately.

    It’s going to be a tough weekend this weekend, so we’ll need all the scoring help we can get. Toronto leads their division in goals scored, and Hamilton is first in that division. Hopefully the Wolves can tire them out tonight before they arrive tomorrow.
