what do you think babs ideal 4th line will be?

we have abs, miller, eaves, helm, and draper and possibly ritola

IMO it should be helm abs eaves. unless abs is crap on the PK

but will babs scratch a vet like draper?

Yes... Draper will be a healthy scratch unless Eaves, Helm or Abdelkader play themselves into the press box, or unless there is an injury - I expect Draper to play about 40 games this season filling in for injuries...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Abby Helm Eaves know question one of the best 4th line in the nhl. I also think they will get more ice time then any other 4th line. Babs will roll 4 lines when every body is health. Just my thoughts any one else have the same fellings?

i think Miller or Eaves is going there are simply just to many guys fighting for a 4th line spot

Abdelkader
Helm
Eaves
Miller
Draper
Ritola
and possibly Downey


I would like to see

Eaves-Abdelkader-Helm.....with Draper and Ritola rotating in, I dont want the Wings to give up on Ritola yet.

The coach has stated he wants to have a third line of Hudler - Modano - Cleary.

These lines can change at any moment, though.

Who are you bumping from the third line of huds mike and cleary to move Helm up.

Let the young guns play on the 4th line, hit everything that moves and chip in the occasional goal. Abby Helm Eaves is gong to be really fun to watch.

The coach has also stated he wants Helm and Abby on the fourth line for another year where they can develop properly.

I can get downey potatoes where I live and I must say they are always great quality.

Maybe we will see draper/eaves/downey rotating in with helm and abby on the 4th line throughout the year.
You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.

Sorry but not a chance! They have to many forwards now and all of them have a lot more talent then he has. If he is signed its Grand Rapids. As long as we don't have a repeat from last year we are more then set at forward.

Talent's got nothin' to do with it.

If Downey makes it, it won't be because his "talent" beat out someone else's. It'll be because of his fisticuffs. We've got plenty of scorers on our team already, we don't need to try and make a scoring line out of the 4th. That's what I meant.
