Franzen-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Filppula-Zetterberg-Bertuzzi
Hudler-Modano-Cleary
Abdelkader-Helm-Draper/Miller
Eaves skated but did not participate in line rushes.

On defense, with Stuart sitting out, these are the pairs they used:

Lidstrom-Ericsson
Kronwall-Rafalski
Kindl-Salei

Howard
MacDonald
Osgood

I like the lines!

Stuart better be playing because I do not want to see Ericsson on the top line with Lidstrom. Lidstrom is good but he cannot play defense alone.

agreed. ericsson was so shaky last night. i think kindl has earned a shot ahead of ericsson for the time being.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

stuart tweaked his leg really weird last night...
if they arent producing together they should split them up.
could we please give helm a chance on the 2nd line for the love of god.... he might not have great skill but he retrieves loose pucks like a madman and could help with our "one and done" problem.

Have you been watching the same games???? Kindl has been HORRIBLE the last 4 games and almost single handedly gave Phoenix the comeback win...

Ericsson is playing his way off of this team. Kindl has shown improvement with his time up here and I have more confidence in him than Ericsson. We don't need a pylon who pinches at the worst times leading to the inevitable odd-man rush.

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Salei-Kindl

The first two lines are proven and have led us to a Cup and 2 Finals appearances and who really cares about the 3rd line, it's the 3rd line.

if ur referring to the pass that gave them the second goal, helm was partly at fault too. kindl uses his body well and doesnt just give the puck away when he gets it. ericsson just dumps it up the boards.

did you see big E get outbattled in front of howard for the tying goal in the pheonix game. he should have dumped his man at the least. he looked clumsy with the puck in his feet not sure what to do.

thank you, somebody is watching the same players as me.

And Ericsson has been god awful for the past month and a half. Neither one is really worth having out there but if I had to choose, lately it's Kindl.

These lines aren't bad, but what else can we do? There has to be shake ups continuously until they work. Cleary-Pav-Hudler might be worth a look again as they complimented well. We can only hope that the mix up means something.....

This didnt work the first time only because hudler was playing like s***. hopefully our "hardest working player" can up his game. The first two lines make perfect sense and so does the forth so i say roll with it. at least cleary will make up for hudler's inability to do anything along the boards or skate faster than a glacier speed.

I still don't know why Babs broke up Hudler-Datsyuk-Cleary, they only had a couple average games and he broke them up... I'm going to go rare "line thread" post on this one, but this is what I really want to see:

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

Lidstrom-Stuart
Kronwall-Rafalski
Ericsson-Salei

I don't ever remember the lines changing this much in the past. Is it just me and my poor memory or do they change a lot?

Ericsson has been affected since Raffi has been up and down, he seems to struggle when changing partners and needs that consistency to be the most effective, which is a cause for concern with the way the NHL game is played... with that said, I still would take Ericsson's bad decisions over Kindl's bad decisions at this point...

Well let's hope Stuie is ok after that awkward fall. He did come back out and play after that but that was a gnarly fall. Hopefully he is just sitting out to rest and get treatments.

I was surprised he finished the game, that was ugly looking indeed... we definitely need him right now, next to Nick, he's been our best d-man this year
