I would say eaves, the only thing i remember him doing last game was getting laid out a few times

The fact that you remember him doing anything at all puts him one step above Miller.

works every time

Despite Miller's PK ability we do have so many guys that can fill in tonight. Hudler doesnt bring any speed to that line and although Miller isn't slow he clearly is the slowest of Eaves, Helm and himself so I think it makes the most sense to sit Miller out. I think we'll just see some extra PK time from Cleary and/or Filppula in Miller's absense.

I would think the only way it's not Miller is if there is an undisclosed minor injury to another (not Franzen) player.

You nailed it - For all these reasons, it's a pretty clear choice and you almost have to feel bad for Miller, because he's played VERY well given his role, but the fact is, he's the least talented of our 13 healthy forwards right now...

Hudler - I dont think you'll see the 3rd get broken up after it took 8 games for them to start clicking a bit. That's not to say you wont see Hudler - Modano - Cleary for a couple of shifts at some point but I think to start we see:

Abdelkader - Modano - Cleary
Hudler - Helm - Eaves
Miller (sitting)

Exactly - plus you just get the sense that Hudler would mesh better with Eaves. The speed that Eaves brings should create more space for him. It'll be interesting to see 1. if we're right, and 2. how they mesh

I think there's a great chance you see merri-go-round on the bottom 2 lines tonight, with essentially all 6 getting mixed and swapped at various points...
Abdelkader-Modano-Cleary
Hudler-Helm-Eaves

Hudler-Modano-Cleary
Abdelkader-Helm-Eaves

Adbelkader-Modano-Hudler
Cleary-Helm-Eaves

Hudler-Abdelkader-Modano
Cleary-Helm-Eaves

I wouldn't be surprised to see any of those at some point throughout the night, not to say they will be that way all night, but at some point, for a look...

yes he did, not to mention he registered 3 shots on net to Miller's 0 and played just an overall very solid defensive game, while generating some offense as well...

Eaves shouldnt be sitting for if Miller is in the line up. I think Hud will be on the 4th line after the solid game we saw from the third line last game

Im not sure how Hudler will fit in with the fourth line. We all know Helm has the speed to back check and set up a play, but God I am hoping Hudler does not try to set him up. I still do not trust Helm's shot.

I have to agree with you Stev, the bottom 6 is going to be mixed unless they play extremely well. I would love to see if Hudler and Filp still play well together but we all know we will not see that happen, that 2nd line has been way too good for us despite there little slow down.

I want to see
Eaves-Cleary-Mo
Helm-Midget-Abby

*Disclaimer- Don't get all pissy with me because I didn't list them in the right position. It's just a line combo I want to see.

Cleary and Hudler at center???? What the hell is wrong with you?!?!?!?!?!?

:P

seriousness though, I think there's a good chance that we'll see that at some point, I personally think those would be very complementary lines as well...

Skill doesn't do it for wings on most nights, work ethic is everything especially against a young fast team... i think this is a bad descision, hudler won't be any better and Miller is one of the 10 best forward PK'ers in the league (yeah you heard me)...im not so sure abdelkader is ready for pk duties yet he has only just come back from injury while miller is in a rythm

Even with him injured I rather him play instead of Miller. Helm and Eaves on the PK is sexy.
