If the Red Wings lose tonight I will blame it solely on Mike Babcock's refusal to insert Mike Modano in the lineup.

Bit of an over-reaction, eh?

I'd like to see Modano in, really just to show the guys that underperformance = get benched and replaced by someone else. Shake things up a bit.

we have to put Modano in he would help our Power play and help win faceoffs and he knows what it takes to win a cup he has heart which looks like Franzen has no heart

Mo played great during his one game. He didnt really have heart during the regular season, but these are the playoffs. I think I would rather have Modano in over Miller, Hudler, and Abdelkader right now but that could just be my Modano man crush speaking.

What was the point of even signing him if you aren't going to use him when you need to make a change.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

In all seriousness, is there an explanation why Mike isn't in the lineup? His appearance in the Phoenix series was very promising as he showed speed, skill and playmaking ability. Down 2-0 in a must win game and in need of a shakeup, why NOT put him in for an under-performing player? Forget that he is a future Hall of Famer and deserves better than this, can anybody explain his benching from a hockey decision standpoint?

He's benched for the same reason Hudler and Flip are on a line together and Rafalski and Ericsson are a d-pairing.


...Ladies and gentlemen, Mike Babcock has been drugged.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

With this possibly being the final game of Modano's career, he has to be given a fighting chance. Bench Hudler and put Mo in.

They got nothing to lose now, might as well give him a shot, the 3rd line or Flipper and Hudler hasn't made much of a dent at all this series, get Modano in for Hudler perhaps. And for people who says Modano is lazy or before Hudler's biggest fan yells at me with Hudler doing well or whatever, I get it. Again, Modano played solid in his one playoff game so far, they are all but done, might as well give it a shot even if he just plays 8-10 minutes.

I posted something similar in another thread - that with this being potentially the last game of the year they absolutely should put Modano in the line up. However, I don't particularly think it should be at Hudler's expense as he played well last night.

Regardless, Modano has to play in Game 4. No matter how they view the series, the Wings organization should do right by Modano and play him in what could easily be his last NHL game and last game at the Joe. If the Wings do in fact lose we should be given the chance to give Modano a proper send off in what will almost for sure be his inevitable retirement this summer. It would be a classy move and at least put a silver lining on an otherwise disappointing series. I say send him out in the right way. Give him the respect he deserves for coming to Detroit and trying to accomplish something (even though it just didn't work out)

Play him.
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.
