Elmer Soderblom’s roster spot comes with a condition

On Wednesday, Red Wings head coach Derek Lalonde spoke to the media and he talked about Elmer Söderblom having to play a significant role to stick with the team.

“I think what we’re fighting through is that if we can’t find significant minutes and roles for Elmer and Joe, then we have to have that balance of what’s going to be best for their development,” he said. “We’re still fighting through that, and that’s gonna take a life of itself.”

Of course, this makes perfect sense because if Söderblom was only going to play 5-6 minutes per game with the Red Wings, he would be better off developing in Grand Rapids.
