Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Homer (for now maybe diff in playoffs)

Calder-Lang-Bertuzzi

Cleary-Draper-Maltby

Hudler-Filpulla-Franzen

That doesnt even feel right putting Franzen on the 4th actually ... soo many options

I think he should still juggle Lang out of the 2nd line.. Maybe putting Lang on the 4th will get him to start doing something. Reward Filp and give him some 2nd line minutes and see how it goes. Put Lang on the doghouse and see if he revitalizes.

Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Holmstrom

Calder- Lang- Bertuzzi

Cleary- Filppula -Samuelsson

Franzen- Draper -Maltby

That's a heck of a lineup.

I like those, but I have a problem with putting Lang on the second line. I'd switch Lang and Fippula, IMHO.

How about powerplay lines?

Datsyuk - Zetterberg - Bertuzzi

Calder - Lang - Samuelsson

Holmstrom must be on the PP, to screen the goalie for the point shots.

Homer is MOST valuable on the PP.

Think playoffs...Lang has to be in the top-six then.

Good thought about Bertuzzi eventually playing with Zetterberg and Datsyuk. IMO the only line set in stone is Maltby/Drape/Franzen. Either Calder or Samuelsson will play with Lang, and whoever doesnt will play with Flip and Cleary on a very quality 4th line.

They got 2 forwards and only gave up one, meaning hudler is gonna be most likely to sit out when everyone comes back. But Is it just me or are the red wings kinda thinking that samulesson could possibly be out for the year?

The Wings covered every "just in case player X is out for an extended period" situation by adding one more good forward than they gave up. I'm really feeling good here if Bert starts playing soon.

Dats Zetter Calder

Bertuzzi Lang Frazen

Homer Drapper Maltby

Sam Filppula Hudler

i dont think putting homer with draper and maltby would do anything, he has to stay with datsyuk and zetterberg. and im sure cleary would be in the lineup too

Slitting the best line in the NHL today by Calder would be a joke.

If we were coach, that would be justice, but I think they will give him a chance to prove himself with Calder and Bertuzzi. Apparently Lang is the kind of player who sinks or swims with his line. Hell, it would be nice if he was the main factor in getting others to play, but that is not his thing.

Here's how I'd set things up for the playoffs:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom

Calder-Lang-Bertuzzi

Cleary-Draper-Hudler

Maltby-Franzen-Filppula

Lidstrom-Kronwall

Markov-Schneider

Lebda-Chelios

Hasek

Osgood

Samuelsson can trade off with Hudler and Filppula.

Looking at those combos, the deals Holland made for Calder and Bertuzzi were excellent. We have a good mix of scoring and grit. Besides Betruzzi we're still a little small, but we won't be pushed around as much, like the last few seasons.

Lastly, I think Langer's going to pick it up with better line mates.

Dats - Z - Homer

Calder - Lang - Bert

Sammy/Cleary - Draper - Hudler

Franzen - Filppula - Maltby

Hudler needs more ice. Maltby needs less.

Homer will STAY with Dats and Z.

Our powerplay lines should take a turn now. The way I see it, SHOULD be.

Datsyuk - Zetterberg - Holmstrom

Bertuzzi - Lang - Hudler

Cleary should be demoted to not playing on the PP, while a power forward with two finesse Czechs in Lang and Hudler would be perfect. Just my opinion, I really could see it working though. Maybe even Calder in Hudler's place, but realistically, Hudler should be seeing more PP time. It's his strength, or at least, would be.

I think maybe

Bert,Cleary ,samy

Draper,Fillpula,Franzen
