I HATE these lines... Franzen just slows Pavs down every single time he is on Pavs line... imo Babs should stick with Dats/ Hank/ Homer line as the top line because they work real well together when they develop their chemestry... and to top that, if we want the Wings to have success in the playoffs, we NEED hank to score goals and the guy to get him to do that consistently is Pavs...

We need to put Cleary, Huddie and Pasha back together. They were doing great together, developing some pretty potent chemistry.

I understand things aren't going well, but I'm not sure changing the lines every game is the best solution. I wanted to see more of Cleary with Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

Our defense should look real stellar too if Stuart doesn't play. <_<

Why? This was the lineup that Modano scored his first goal in game 1

And then didn't score again. They were the Minus Line. I agree with the general population here, Mike should reunite Hudler-Datsyuk-Cleary. I can't remember why he split them up in the first place.

Because the Mule was playing like ass. And then Modano was back, so why put it back together right?

A part of Babs' job is to maximize the effectiveness of his roster. He has to try to get certain players going by pairing them with others who are playing well at the moment. He doesn't want to be happy with just one or two lines.

Or at least, that's what I imagine the company line would be. Bla bla bla.

This also was before Modano got the Red Wings touch, given that Mike wouldn't have gotten injuried things could've went a whole different route. I'm not saying the guy is incredible for us because I do see a lot of floating from him from his return but obviously Babcock is trying to get something rolling here. Let's see how it works out.

Meh, 6 of 1 half a dozen to the other. Like I said, they are both awful right now. I am the opposite as it seems to me that Ericsson looks like a dang chicken with his head cut off and plenty of giveaways. Kindl had a huge mistake the other night in PHX that didnt' help the team but to me, Jonathan Ericsson is a 6'5 220 lb. pylon that fairly soon has to go. Kindl is not the answer either, but the way I am thinking now, he is just a rookie and he needs to get the flow of the NHL. Ericsson's time has come and gone.


Well, maybe we'll get to see some Janik tonight. Then I guess we'll really find out just how "terrible" Ericsson and Kindl really have been and what our options are to replace them. If Dougie is rock solid on the third pairing and provides some stability he might be seeing some extra time at the end of the season. Or we could see how the Wings have pretty much no other alternative to who we're using and we're stuck with it. With Big E being a FA at the end of the year he's not really building himself a big payday here.

With how he played this season and last, I hope he doesn't get any payment from the Detroit Red Wings.

If I could give 100 +'s I would to this post. Shameful watching him get worse by the game.

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 would break up the Ber-Z-Mule line. They haven't had anything going for them. Put Homer, Modano or even Helm with Z and Mule.

I won't go this far, but a post like this obviously shows the frustration people have with him recently, me as well. We need him, but my goodness has he just been making so many glaring turnovers lately, much more so than when a lot of people had him as a whipping boy last season (IMO last season he wasn't great but I don't think he stood out being just terrible compared to others, etc.).
