Todd Bertuzzi and Pavel Datsyuk are expected to play tomorrow.

Jonathan Ericsson will replace Brett Lebda tomorrow as well.

Great News on Bert!

That's great, we need them. A win against the Flames would be huge.
Thank You TeeMan

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

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

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.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

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. <_<

He undoubtedly would be claimed by someone. At least we've seen how good he can be, it's up to him to improve his play.

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.
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

It was Erikson or Krupp. I'll take Lebda myself.

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.

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.
