Saying that Ericsson will/should be playing on the right side with Lidstrom is like saying that he should be our 1st line center...

Playing Ericsson with anyone BUT Lidstrom is retarded.

Kindl and Smith are going to be the odd-men out on this one, unless there's a trade in the works.

He played with Rafalksi most of last season. It's not like it hasn't happened before.

I know, I just don't believe it's the right thing to do. I'm pretty sure we all saw what San Jose did to that pairing in the playoffs.

True but he played on LEFT side.

True. Honestly I just hope Lids and Stuart don't end up as the main pairing this season. They never seemed to work very well together. Stuart looked crossed up out there more than I've seen him before, yet Babcock stuck with it.

True but he played on LEFT side.

And he could again with White.

The good news is with this defensive corps, Babcock has a lot of options. Everyone except Kindl and Smith is capable of handling 18+ minutes a night if they're playing well. (I don't really see Commodore doing that, but it's possible).

I don't know why coaches don't switch up their defensive pairings according to matchups more

EXACTLY the line pairings I want to see! Bravo! +1 for you!



For those of you who think it, it won't happen, Commodore WILL NOT be the 7th defenseman... He may sit once in awhile to allow Kindl some playing time, but Kindl (if he reamins a Red Wing) will be the 7th defenseman.

Putting Ericsson/Kindl/Commodore on the same pairing would be a disaster. The first two aren't experienced enough to be on a line together and Ericsson and Commodore would be the slowest defense pair in the league. White was most likely signed to play with Lids because of his right handed shot too so expect them to be paired. Aside from the top pair, Kronwall and Stuart should be split up based on their experience and the skating ability of Commodore and Ericsson. There needs to be somebody more skilled to cover for errors by Ericsson, Commodore and Kindl. This looks like a very steady defensive corps and I love the signings of White and Commodore.

Lidstrom - White
Kronwall - Ericsson
Stuart - Commodore/Kindl
