Hudler starts and Modano sits one of the next two games, Babcock said. I think he specifically mentioned Edmonton. He doesn't want Modano playing a back-to-back. Modano scored a goal, now it's time for Hudler to make his case, as that final spot seems to be between these two.



You think it's between Huds and Modo? Or Huds and Abby?

Who knows; maybe you would realize that enforcers in hockey are critical to a teams chemistry and overall success?

Abdelkader ignited the 3rd line tonight, he's not going anywhere, he had one solid chance to score and he did, he set up Cleary for a sure goal if he put it up.

Its Modano or Hudler

How bout some love for Big E. He made some nice breakout passes and looked pretty solid. Definitely an upgrade over Janik.

Mo will play Friday, per Babcock. Why mess with that line? :thumbup:

Love having Miller on the team, and wish he could be rewarded for his hard work, but that doesn't look too shabby.

Agree. Ericsson looked good, Kindl not so much.

I like your thinking but Huds can't play defense to save his life and that would take away one of our better penalty killers. With the "hands", or lack thereof that Clears is showing it would be a sick 4th line if we put him down with Helmer and Eaves. Clears is all heart and hustle but I swear he closes his eyes when he shoots the puck on net lol. If we could get a proven high priced scorer near playoff time that would make the Abby/Modo/*Scorer* line really sick and free up Huds salary to address our needs through free agency over the summer.

I don't think Babs will sit Modo, even if he does go cold as Modo is Babs 1st choice on the point opposite Kronner on the 2nd PP unit and is a great option to have for a third line center... and he's relatively cheap too. It would really take some of the pressure off of Z, Dats, and Franzen if we could another 30 to 40 goal scorer at the deadline from a team that knows they won't be able to re-sign him.

Just checked and the FA's of interest this summer:

Justin Williams
Brooks Laich
Teemu Selanne
Steve Sullivan
Andrew Brunette
Erik Cole
Cory Stillman
Alexander Semin
Alexander Frolov

Brooks Laich is on the last year of 2mil/yr deal. He's 6'2" 210lbs, plays physical, can be a net presence, scored 25 goals last year and will be looking for a deal in the 3-4m/yr range, which I don't think the Caps can afford and still re-sign Semin who will want considerably more. Hopefully the Caps will try to get something for him rather than lose him to FA for nothing. He would look pretty darn good on our third line!

So you mean that would leave us with just Helm, Eaves, Filppula, Cleary, Franzen, Abdelkader, Zetterberg and Datsyuk who can kill penalties?



:P

Well I am as happy as a pig in s***. Secondary scoring showed up and Howie was fantastic. Being there in person was the icing.

I thought Kindl looked pretty solid as well.

Ericsson surprised me. Other than a couple "OMG WTF ARE YOU DOING" passes, he played pretty well.

Not well enough to be on the top pair, but I'm shocked I'm not begging for Janik to be back in the lineup.

As many of you had mentioned before, I'm glad this is an issue, because it shows we're stacked. Bab's has no desire to pull Ab's, if he wasn't injured, he would've been a mainstay. Looking at all the Forward lines, the 4th line is sick! They truly can wear down a team in the opposing team's end. Hud's should get a shot Friday against the Oilers, and I foresee him given many opportunities if he plays. I don't agree with Mo' or anyone on the 3rd line being pulled simply because they all did well tonight. It's a truly tough call that Bab's has to make if he were to change the lines, but either way, I see it as an opportunity to showcase their depth. Truly can't wait to see what happens (that is if Bab's already made his decision).
