I had a dream last night where Eaves threw a huge hit in the corner, then Abs did the same in the opposite corner... then the puck went up the middle and Helm had a huge open ice hit. All three guys dropped the gloves and had an all-forward brawl with the other team...

Make it happen.

That won't happen with Helm but I could see the other 2 sometime next season fighting on the same shift. Eaves isn't a bad scrapper when he decides to go, I would like to see more of it out of him really. And playing with huge hitting, agitating Abby I think Eaves will be forced into it more this year.

Will Babs play Downey over Abby or Helm or Eaves? I sure the hell wouldn't ! I don't think he's going to make the Grand Rapids team!

Short question:

What if Maltby shows an outstanding performance at the training camp?! Playing better than Eaves, Miller, Helm and Abdelkader...

does he really have the chance to earn a spot on the roster?

I'm grateful for everything Malts has done for the Red Wings, but I sure hope not. It's time to move ahead with youth. There are too many "possible" forwards pining for the 4th line. You've got Abdelkader, Helm, Eaves, Miller, Draper, Ritola, Maltby and Downey as possibilities. Unless a couple of those guys are willing to play in Grand Rapids, namely Malts and Downey, I doubt they'll be with the Wings in any capacity.

downey would be awesome with abby and helm.. but i think it'll end up being abby helm and miller.. with eaves and draper getting games here and there. drapers a decent pk too.. i could see maltby being offered a 2-way and declining it.... but who knows. i am very excited for this season though!!

We're deep enough that we can put Gordie Ted and Al on the 4th and let the youngsters vie for time with Mike.

I don't see Helm can't add a little fighting aspect to his game. He has rather stone like hands anyways.

I'd be all for Helm fighting more, as long as he's not hiding behind his windshield. If he loses the lid before he starts throwing, I'm fine with that.

Question: If we assume that the lines will be:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Filppula-Bertuzzi
Hudler-Modano-Cleary
Abdelkader-Helm-Eaves

Who are the fair candidates for the two reserve forwards spots?

Of course we got Draper, Miller, Ritola. I actually think Maltby and Downey are fair candidates. Anybody else?

I don't understand the lack of love for Miller. I thought he played well with us last season, especially teamed with Eaves on pk, and even chipped in a few goals.

To me, Abby-Helm-Eaves, has that grind line kind of feel to it. If only Abby could throw them like DMac. The other 2 compare quite well to Draper and Maltby, with Eaves having that offensive upside of someone who scored 50 in Juniors.

As for Miller, I see him as redundant. Especially with Eaves here. I don't see Miller being any better than he was last year, where I see room for Eaves to improve his game. And keep in mind, he's a coaches kid and plays like one. Always in position and always ready to do what the coach asks of him. I see Miller, somehow playing in Tampa again next year.

It's not really about a lack of love for him. It's just that the Wings have only so many roster spots.

With Abby soon to be signed we have to get rid of two players I think one is meech the other is either Miller or Ritola Malts may take a two way deal maybe Downey also with two way deal. That leaves Draper and the one left over between Miller or Ritola. That's the way I see it going down.

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Filppula-Bertuzzi
Hudler-Modano-Cleary
