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.

Lets Go:
Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions
Spartans
Pistons

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

Dats,Z,Homer (we all agree to this one)
Bert,Cleary ,samy
Draper,Fillpula,Franzen
Calder,Lang,Hudler

if Samuelsson is healthy, then my line idea will be:

Datsyuk - Zetterberg - Bertuzzi
Cleary - Lang - Samuelsson
Calder - Filppula - Holmstrom
Franzen - Draper - Maltby

Lidstrom - Markov
Schneider - Kronwall
Labda - Chelios

PowerPlay 1
Datsyuk - Zetterberg - Holmstrom
Lidstrom - Schneider

PowerPlay 2
Samuelsson - Lang - Bertuzzi
Lidstrom - Kronwall

To those who continue to put Cleary in your top 6 after today....I think Cleary's days as a 2nd line forward are over. I'm excited because you get a player of Cleary's quality playing on our 4th line....that shows the much improved depth the Wings have now.

No way that the homer, zett, and dats line can't be separated right now but imagine these lines..I'd even plug in Huds in the 4th line because franzen sucks.

zetterberg-datsyuk-bertuzzi
calder-lang-holmstrom
cleary-filp-sami (when he comes back)
Maltby-franzen-draper

Just thinking how funny Bert, Bob and Rex would look together. Two monsters and a dwarf.

i know a lot of you are weary of splitting up the Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Holmstrom line. But with Zetterberg out for tonight I just might have to throw Lang in there with Datsyuk. Perhaps some hustle and hard work could rub off on him and he might get his confidence back goin again and he could be the power foward he used to be for our second line again. I definitly wouldnt split up our top line, but I would consider it for tonight, and a few shifts here and there in the future.... We could at least throw them out there for a couple of shifts to maybe spark something with Lang. I just want to see Lang get it goin again because the play of late has been disgusting. If Lang gets it going and Burt gets out here, and Sammy we got ourselves a Powerhouse..

not really on the main topic of future lines..... but close

Datsyuk-Z-Homer
Bert-Filppula-Sam
Calder-Lang-Cleary
Franzen-Draper-Maltby

I like the idea of Bertuzzi on Zetterberg/Datsyuk line. this would make the kids very effective in playoffs. Bertuzzi creates room, Dats and Z shine with their skills.
Lang gets Calder (new face) and keeps Cleary.

so it goes:

Datsyuk - Zet - Bertuzzi
Calder - Lang - Cleary
Maltby - Draper - Homer
Flip - Hudler - Franzenstein/Sammy
