    I'm thinking the same thing, except switch around AA and Svechnikov. Nyquist Zetterberg Mantha Tatar Larkin Svechnikov Athanasiou Nielsen Frk Abdelkader Helm Glendening DeKeyser Daley Ericsson Green Ouellet Jensen I thought Svechnikov showed some good chemistry with Larkin in that Ottawa game last season. I love that he loves crashing the net and stomping around in goalies' kitchens and just generally mucking it up in all those dirty places in the o-zone where the Wings tend to lose a lot of battles for pucks and positioning. He's like a bigger Tatar in that sense. I think we need more of that in the top six. Tatar-Larkin-Svechnikov could be really effective on the forecheck and the cycle. Athanasiou-Nielsen-Frk would, in theory, be like Athanasiou-Nielsen-Vanek. The problem with the Athanasiou-Nielsen-Vanek line was that Vanek and Athanasiou had to be sheltered...and yet at the same time we needed that line to be a solid, formidable second line. Now that Nielsen's been bumped down to 3C and Larkin is playing big minutes, the sheltering thing isn't as much of a concern. I left Bertuzzi out because one of Booth/Witkowski, Sheahan, Glendening will always be in the lineup. And, to be honest, I was really disappointed with Bertuzzi's preseason performance, so I don't feel too bad about leaving him out.

    Replace two of Booth/Witkowski, Sheahan, Glendening with Svechbro Sr. and Alcoholics Anonymous and we might actually have a playoff-worthy forward group.

    My biggest concern with him was his playmaking ability, or perceived lack thereof. So seeing him making plays and racking up assists is making me very happy.

    I don't think there's anything smart about what he's doing. He's cutting off his nose to spite his face. His brand is fast becoming "bratty malcontent."

    I mean, you're not wrong.

    The tank is already on, my friend. This here is a stealth tank.

    POTG is Kronwall, for his momentum-killing penalty that ruined what would have been an epic comeback.

    Welp. That was a thoroughly stupid game.

    Oh, sure, now you put the kids back together.

    You can't have all that pressure and not even put a puck on net. Come on.

    "He'd like to get off if he can, but..." Story of our season, probably.

    Kronwall. You need to retire.
