The DeLorean is in the garage...I might just lend it to him if needed.

I was thinking Mr. Peabody and his Wayback Machine given current fuel prices. Push comes to shove they can suit up Sherman if needed.

ALso notes that Modano will warm up with Datsyuk and Holmstrom.

This means one of two things:

1. Datsyuk's wrist is healthy enough to take face-offs or they trust Modano enough to take the face-offs for him. Which allows them to go with:

Datsyuk/Modano - Datsyuk/Modano - Holmstrom

Cleary - Zetterberg - BErtuzzi

Miller - Filppula - ABdelkader

Draper - Helm - Eaves

Or,

2. They will switch at some point in the game to something like:

Modano - Filppula - Datsyuk

Cleary - Zetterberg - Bertuzzi

Miller - Abdelkader - Holmstrom

Draper - Helm - Eaves

I would imagine they want to be able to roll option one as it makes them stronger down the middle

I like your 2nd options better. Flip and Pav are just $ together and hoping for Mo to be skating like a 20 year old tonight (:lol:) he can get some huge chances with these 2 setting him up.

I definitely agree with that but there's no denying the third line is weaker. So I guess we'll see what happens but yeah I mean I like the second options better as well in a way but part of me thinks you may get more out of each player with option 1.

I don't see Modano going on the first line but that is just my opinion.

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Holmstrom

Cleary - Filppula - Bertuzzi

Miller - Abdelkader - Modano

Draper - Helm - Eaves

At home I think they'll keep Datsyuk and Zetterberg apart - at least for the most part.

i know it won't happen, but if i'm babs, these are the lines i'd roll...

Filppula-Datsyuk-Cleary

Modano-Zetterberg-Bertuzzi

Abdelkader-Helm-Eaves

Draper-Miller-Holmstrom

FLIP AND PAV MUST BE TOGETHER, imo. I'd plug Modano on the second line. Go with that nice third grind line. And use the fourth line as subs pretty much.

40 years old or not, he can still skate fast, has a hard shot and is A LOT less beat up than anyone else in this series.
