How could they plan for ericsson to rest 2 games and have a date/game set for him to return to? I don't get it.. play one player until he f***s up then replace him til the guy who replaced him f***s up etc

That's great news. We haven't heard news like that all year on the injury front.

We have the talent to wipe the ice with Calgary as long as we show up and compete out there.

Ericsson does scare the s*** out of me, though.

Agreed.

The Lilja/Lebda combo has been respectable these past few years; nothing against Ericsson, but he needs to simplify his game, and concentrate on the "D" aspect of defense if he's going to gain the confidence from the Red Wings coaching staff.

Ericsson or Lebda....Both are pretty brutal but a 6th D isnt suppose to be great... but lebda can have that excellent speed through the neutral zone while ericsson is just slow... but to be honest, what does ericsson have that lebda doesnt? ericsson doesnt use his size so that argument isnt good....

Potential.

Ericsson is still a rookie and is going to keep developing. We already know what Lebda brings.

Ericsson should play 25mins in the minors but he have to go through waivers i think and that wouldnt work.. gah... he needs to get back confidence and his game overall.

Every time this debate comes up I end up thinking Ericsson needs to be with the Griffins, but wait! He would have to go through waivers. <_<

When I read the title I assumed that Ericsson would be replacing Lilja!

But I guess he can replace Lebda for a game to see if he can get his game together. But I would much rather wait for Ericsson to play against the Wild as compared to the Flames.

Big E may be struggling, but he doesn't take any s*** from douches around our net, and there will probably be a lot of that against the Flames.

esteef

True - however he's a scary combo when paired with Lebda...I really hope Ericcson realises that just 'cause you were top dog in the AHL doesn't mean you'll be top dog in the NHL...In other words he needs to smarten up defensively if he wants to stay with the big club.

I almost feel like the year is a wash for Big E... I think he lost his confidence early, and just went downhill from there. It's hard for him to make ground now, but I feel like if he gets to spend the year with Lils as his partner (next season) he could improve mightily. I just wonder if his confidence is shot for this season.

The Big Epocalypse is in for Lebda? Babcock are you mad?!!!!!!!!! Especially it being against the Flames. Can't he wait a little while longer til we play a s*** team?

This topic is shocking to me. Can't believe people on this board are picking Lebda over Erickson. That said, I'll admit I haven't been able to watch much Wings hockey on TV this year, so the only image I have of Erickson is from last year, when I was fairly impressed. Is he pushing too much on Offense, is his positioning off, just can't visualize how he could be worse then Lebda!

Good news on Bert, but why Ericsson back for Lebda? He's been good.

Good God, I can't believe I just said that.

But it's true and you're right. I've had the same reaction the last few games. This is NOT the time to bring Ericsson back. But it's great news about Big Bert. Now, if he, Cleary and Homer get their beehinds in front of any and all future goalies...and we continue to crash the net, methinks our chances look even better than ever. :D

We've only watched E play with Lebda not Lilja. Maybe with Lilja E will look just as good or better then Lebda has.

I tihnk the not allowing doche bags round the net factor is partially why E is in against the flames. And I also think he handles the physicallity of a team like Calgary better then Lebda does.

having watched most of this years games, i think the lebda over ericsson opinion is valid right now. ericsson has had a tough year for sure. as others have said it could very well just be a confidence issue. additionally, lebda has played better the last couple weeks which has his stock higher than any other time this year i think.
