He got off to a good start against the Canucks, lets hope he continues.

Hoping to see Ozzie in net and get his 400 win out of the way. Also hopefully the team won't already be on vacation for Christmas, we still need to work tonight for the win.

Go Wings!

Thanks Offsides

Or put datsyuk on LTIR because he will be out a minimum of 10games/28days and bring up a kid from GR, draper does nothing on the ice for this team.

Nope, but they should, i guess ken holland doesn't have the guts to sit his beloved veteran for a much younger, physical and speedier kid.

Two solid line options I have thought of:

Option 1; Vancouver lines with minor changes (Hudler takes Datsyuk's spot, Eaves takes Hudler's spot, Draper takes Eaves' spot)

Cleary/Zetterberg/Holmstrom
Abdelkader/Filppula/Eaves
Franzen/Hudler/Bertuzzi
Draper/Helm/Miller

These lines provide three lines deep of scoring; the Z line worked well and Hudler between two big skilled wingers should work well. Eaves' speed should provide a better match for Flip than Huds did in a goal-scoring role.

Option 2:

Franzen/Zetterberg/Cleary
Hudler/Filppula/Bertuzzi
Holmstrom/Abdelkader/Eaves
Draper/Helm/Miller

The first line has been used and its chemistry and performance proven in the past. Huds and Flip have solid chemistry, and Bertuzzi should make a good fit with the two, although not as good as Franzen would be - switching the two may be even better. Homer with Abby and Eaves should work well because both are grinders with decent offensive skill, so they can gain possession of the puck and get it on net where he can then deflect shots or put rebounds in. Their defense also protects his liability. Fourth line doesn't change.
