I'm generally pleased with how things look but still feels like that 3rd line and williams f***s things up...the 07/08 third line was that hudler-filppula-samuelsson right? Z-D-H first line, Cleary-X-Franzen second? cant remember really, i think i like that third line over this one because they actually scored goals too.
CHI and SJ still have better numbers I think. At the same time, the Red Wings PK wasn't what it is today until Helm, Eaves and Miller took over. When was that exactly? 20 games in?
2nd - Franzen-Filppula-Samuelsson
3rd - Drake-Draper-Cleary
4th - Hudler-Helm-Maltby/McCarty
Great points by both of you guys. Mindfly, yeah I think we were stronger down the top 3 in '08 when it came to scoring. But by the same token we were even stronger in '09 and it didn't get us a Cup.
Titanium, I totally agree with what you are saying. The addition of Eaves and Miller on the PK, not to mention Helm has us where we wanna be. I also feel that those guys provide us with a solid 4 line rotation just like we had in '08 when we won the Cup. The Draper/Helm/Eaves line has proved this much.
Our D is better than it's been all year now that Lilja is back. Lidstrom has started scoring again this second 1/2 of the season, and the Rafi is HOT ever since the Olympics.
I am upbeat about our team. We have some very exciting weeks ahead of us as Red Wings Fans!! Let's all Enjoy!!
Who's With Me???
