Will be making his debut tonight officially. Playing with Kronwall I believe, keep your head up Thornton.

Starting on the PP with lIdstrom too !

Hopefully he does well out there

I hope we get a few powerplays cause it said that he was going to be paired up with Lidstrom on the first PP unit.

This guy is one of the future cornerstones. Will be cool to see his first game and remember it 5 years from now when he's the anchor instead of Lidstrom.

I hope we see a little glimpse of the future here and he plays well. I'm sure he will do fine with those pairings.

Exciting times!

Glad they sat Commodore and not Kindl. We've got two of our (hopefully) future mainstays on defence in Smith and Kindl. :thumbup:

Good Call!

Hopefully Ericsson too. I don't think he's quite as bad as everyone seems to think he is.

I'll actually be able to catch the full game tonight as long as I can find a stream.

I would rather see Smith play next to Commodore. I just don't think Babcock is over his hatred for Commodore, so his signing was pretty much pointless. Too bad too, because he hasn't looked bad at all, and the defense looks a ton meaner with him, Smith and Ericsson on it. All due respect to Kindl, but for me, I like Commodore better. But as long as Babcock is coach, he will never be able to show what he can do...same reason why Fedorov could never come back before he left for Russia...I like Babs, but its sad that his ego gets in the way a lot.

I look forward to seeing Smith play, but sure wish Commie was playing...

Over 17 minutes even strength and over 2 mins on the PP.

He lookd realy poised out there, especially for it being his debut. Overall I was impressed with his game tonight for sure. I tihnk he'll be in while whites hurt full time. His shot and ability to walk the line on the PP look deadly,

He played 1 second less than Stuart, and Lidstrom was the only other guy with more time on ice than him

a few lapses here and there, but that is to be expected while he learns the league.

he is so silky smooth out there, and he does walk the line very nicely on the PP. reminds me of a young you know who.

He was way better last night that he was in preseason. He didn't look too bad out there.

According to Smith, he may be in the lineup tomorrow as well:


"As of right now looks like I will get another kick at the can in tomorrow's game. Excited to try to get my first NHL win/point"

I'm also hoping he dusts someone up tomorrow.

"He's got all the potential in the world," Kronwall said. "He's going to be a really good player in this league. He just needs to keep it simple right from the start, and we'll be fine. He does have a lot of upside offensively, and we need that from him. Whenever he has a chance to join the rush, he needs to be able to do that."

But before anyone gets too excited I can't help but remember that Kronwall said that nearly exact same tidbit about Ericsson. :ph34r:

"The sky is the limit," Kronwall once said about Big E. Maybe in his case it's more like, "The limit is the sky."

Kronner must've been talking about E's height.

They should send Ericsson down and play Smith. Ericsson is as bad at defense as Conklin is at goal tending.

Babcock said Brendan Smith will play Saturday, after making his NHL debut in Thursday's 5-2 loss in San Jose.
