I'd rather FSN do that. They're the ones with the archives of footage.

We believe in you

This isn't a goal. It's still one of the greatest moments in Pav and Z history.

I hope the Wings can add the right kind of players to enable us to put the two of them together again.


I think a part of that depends on Filppula right now. Datsyuk and Zetterberg as the 1st and 2nd line centers is a better option than Datsyuk/Zetterberg and Filppula as the 1st and 2nd line centers. I would imagine that Filppula would have to elevate his play to the point in which (from Babs' perspective) the 2nd line's overall effectiveness is the same in comparison to when Zetterberg is the 2nd line center. It's a tough task for Fil but as a Filppula slappy myself, I really hope that happens one day.

This.

I would one day like to see, Zets Dats Homer on the 1st line, then Mule Flip and another decent forward (preferably not bertuzzi..too hot and cold for my liking)

Hopefully filppula becomes that kind of player.

You don't even get a replay on most of the goals. If FSN would let me access their archives then I would do it for free without question.

+1 Great collection of highlights.
Who needs the Sedin twins when we have the Euro twins.

Right, hehe. Although I hope Zetterberg will have a season like Henrik Sedin's this year.

Well, I guess Datsyuk-lite (Fil) is okay sometimes. Haha.

I might as well ask the question here instead of starting a new thread.

Everybody's got a suggestion about what the Wings should or should not do. How about reuniting the Euro Twins? They didn't play together all that much this past regular season and the Zetterberg line has been good. However, I think Datsyuk can get a spark from Zetterberg and that Filppula's confidence is good enough for him to play center again. I can't really come up with great reasons for Babs to do this but I just wanted to know what everyone else thought.

Putting them together might get Pavel going, but right now Hank is driving the bus and they're already getting good contributions from his line. They need scoring from another line, so unless they catch lightning in a bottle from somewhere else like last year with Franzen-Flip-Hossa, I don't know that it would help too much.

Well if Babs were to put them back together then Z would definitely play center. I think Z is playing with confidence right now that it might rub off on Datsyuk. Fil and Bert are playing pretty confident as well and could help Franzen because he'll certainly get the puck a lot more.

Yeah I definitely want to see:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Filppula-Bertuzzi

Shouldn't Zetterberg be the center though?

Also I'd rather have Franzen on the right side because of his shot.

You know, it's worth a shot. I really feel like they should have been able to produce with the lines they have if they played with more intensity, but they are where they are.

Pav has been better on faceoffs lately though. And yes I guess Franzen should be on the right side. Whatever, the basic lines are what I want.

I think uniting ZDH would be a good idea. I don't know why Babs has Z on the faceoffs all the time. He hasn't been that good on them and I though Filppula is generally been solid faceoff guy.
