  1. Brunner-Datsyuk-Nyquist Filppula-Zetterberg-Franzen Cleary-Helm-Sammy Bertuzzi-Abdelkader-Tootoo No space for Sheahan/Andersson unless we trade somebody - and it gets even worse if we sign Semin/Doan (which probably won't happen at this point). And just to add, I think Brunner and Nyquist need to be used in the top 6 (Babcock basically guaranteed that Brunner will start in the top 6 anyways) in order for them to realize their full potential. If we're talking best-case scenarios, I think that Brunner could hit ~55 pts playing on that top line with Datsyuk, and Nyquist should hit at least 40-60. That's pretty decent, and an improvement over last year(if it works out). Brunner is faster than Bertuzzi, has a better shot, and has better hands. He's just way more suited for the top six than Bert is. In terms of the most optimistic outlook on next season, I think we could see something like this up front (point totals) Nyquist (55) - Datsyuk (80) - Brunner (60) Filppula (72) - Zetterberg (75) - Franzen (57) Cleary (35) - Helm (32) - Samuelsson (36) Tootoo (32) - Abdelkader (21) - Bertuzzi (30) That's pretty good - definitely better than last year in my eyes. A more gritty, speedy, and overall more skilled roster than last year.
  2. So you want to miss the playoffs?
  3. Absolute pipe dream of a roster, but imagine if the Wings were to pull this off: CAPGEEK.COM CAP CALCULATOR ROSTER My Custom Lineup FORWARDS Zach Parise ($6.800m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Johan Franzen ($3.955m) Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m) / Darren Helm ($1.100m) / Justin Abdelkader ($0.966m) Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Paul Gaustad ($3.300m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m) Tomas Tatar ($0.840m) DEFENSEMEN Nicklas Lidstrom ($3.200m) / Brendan Smith ($0.875m) Ryan Suter ($7.250m) / Ian White ($2.875m) Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m) Jakub Kindl ($0.883m) GOALTENDERS Jimmy Howard ($2.250m) Joey MacDonald ($0.550m) CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter) SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,614,962; BONUSES: $247,500 CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $685,038 Trade Cleary and Quincey for whatever - cap dumps.
  4. Best possible lineup against the Preds imo: Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Holmstrom Nyquist-Filppula-Franzen Cleary-Abs-Hudler Miller-Emmerton-Bertuzzi The ZDH line is proven and for the stretches they were together in the first 3 games they should a lot of chemistry and had some great chances. The second line provides dependable D mixed with scoring: Nyquist is very shifty with the puck and has the speed to compliment Filppula's game, and Franzen can put the puck in the net if Nyquist and Filppula can feed him the puck (especially Gus with his sick passing). Both Gus and Filppula are good defensively, and Franzen isn't terrible - better than Hudler, at least. The third line provides a lot of energy with Abs and Cleary (playing out of his mind), and Hudler is a good puck possession guy that helps us spread the talent throughout the lineup and gives scoring depth. Finally, that fourth line would have been terrible 3 weeks ago, but Emmerton has really stepped up his game and Miller is playing well for the most part. Bertuzzi could be better, but he's still a big physical (sort of) guy that can definitely play the 4th line grinder role. As for the D, I say go with: Lids-White (worked great in the 3rd period of last game) Stuart-Ericsson (Stuart is making way too many defensive mistakes to be playing with Kronners right now, while Ericsson deserves a promotion with his, dare i say it, amazing play.) Kronwall-Quincey (probably our weakest pairing, but both are okay offensively and make up a great 3rd pairing -- they won't be up against the best players anyway)
  5. anyone got a stream?
  6. 15.1m Parise at 7m (Winger, bad season, likes detroit) Suter at 7.5m Parise-Datsyuk-Franzen Nyquist-Filppula-Zetterberg Miller-Helm-Bertuzzi Cleary-Abdelkader-Mursak Suter-White Kronwall-Quincey Smith-Ericsson Howard Ericsson
  7. To be honest I thought that was terrible compared to last year's History will be made commercials.
  8. Whatever, at least we get a point. I'd love a win, but I won't be enraged with a loss at this point. Boys played well.
