    Babs: " ....the players decide who plays, not me...."

    We have found this to be all but true this year. Tarts and Andersson have been a wakeup call that things have to be shaken up. Look, thanks Danny Cleary, you have been a warrior but now you are clearly a liability. You can shuffle the lines Babs, quit pumping your own tires with this reverse psychology bulls***.

    We are the Detroit Red Wings and we are making the playoffs

    I still think we squeak in. All that has been said in the negative direction of Cleary and Abby is kind of a fallback excuse but they have been a death sentence to that first line. We will see what Gus can do and I am sure we will see Tarts back up here soon enough. A transaction isn't out of the realm either. I fully expect this team to get Helm back soon and that will instantly bring more sense to all of the lines after. I am sure it has been mentioned but I don't think a lot of people realize how much of loss Helmer really is.

    Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

    I like having Gus here again but they could have easily brought Tatar up to top 6 the way he has played. Definitely more behind this than just a clean swap. We will see.

    With Helm coming back shortly (I hope) and Flip back on Wednesday there will be some healthy scratches regardless. Oh, and Sammy too I guess....

    Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

    That line would be quite soft but this rapid decline in Cleary's usefulness and Abby's well, outright uselessness is killing the flow of what the lines could be. Tatar should have been spared truthfully even with how good Andersson has played. We need the skill of getting the puck to the net and in the net at this point and Tarts was one of the few getting that done. While I feel this isn't permanent, just would like to see some more balance throughout. Just not sure where it comes from.

    I like those possibilities especially with Gus on Pash's line. The less minutes Danny and Abs get the better imo. They have really been a deadass paperweight on a top 6 line.

    Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

    My guess would be this move has to do with making room for Helm and Flip coming back soon. Outside of that...

    WCQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Predators 2

    As long as the Wings are playing hockey, I believe. It's a curse, I know....

    Pizza, beer, poker, and Wings hockey.... Fabulous Friday night. Make it a win, and the music will then consequently be cranked up at this household.

    Absolutely love that quote!! Feel the same way but it needs to translate to the ice. Let's bring it back to the Joe and see where we go from there.

    #6 Chicago Blackhawks vs. #3 Phoenix Coyotes

    The Torres for Hossa trade off seems to be kind of a big deal in this series wouldn't you all say?? Hawks are toast.
