I don't mean any disrespect but the defence this year is far superior than that under the late McCrimmon's defensive scheme. Very impressed with Jimmy as well, he's been a huge part of it. I only really feel uncomfortable with our 3rd pairing right now, but they're young so I don't mind.

And again... go Jimmy!

Why is that?

I picked up season tickets to Notre Dame this year so I will be busy on a lot of Friday and Saturday nights.

As for everyone else, maybe it's just early in the season.

I'd like to see our third pairing be Helm, Abdelkader and Eaves, with a fourth line of Brunnstrom, Miller and Emmerton.

Hudler doesn't fit in.

I don't think your being disrespectful because it is true. I really do think that this scheme has been working out very well for the Wings and if it keeps up I think we will make a run for Lord Stanley.

I think the biggest difference is that Stuart Kronwall being the real #1 pairing and Lids have a really solid D partner in White. White is solid on both ends, he is no Raf in the O zone, but then again he is no Raf in the D zone either!

The top 2 pairings are better defensively than they have been in a long time, even before Schnieds I think.

Sure they are not as offensively gifted, but Kronner is off to a great start.

I do think though that the lack of another PP d-man with Lids is hurting the pp though.

Hudler Helm Abdelkader has been our second best line in the last few games. Thanks to Hudler, that line is semi-dangerous offensively. If you removed Hudler, it would make the line worse.
