Miller has played centre on occasion i believe and has played well, so he could fill that role. Homer should be in the press box cause in a limited role, Mursak is more effective. He doesn't give the puck away and he's WAY faster on the backcheck and forecheck.

I remember filling in for a couple games because there was no choice. I don't think Miller can really be counted on, as a centre, for any elongated period of time. But who knows, maybe you're right


To me Nyquist fits better with Datsyuk and Franzen (over Fil and Zetterberg) because although he's not really a shoot first guy his speed creates goal scoring chances for him. Both he and Hudler are pass first guys but I think nyquist speed would do more to open up space for Datsyuk and Franzen than having Hudler with the pair. Plus, I think Zetterberg is so much more of a shooter than Datsyuk that Hudler on a line with two guys that are shooting the puck a lot makes sense. I just see more benefit to Nyquist with Datsyuk and Franzen (especially considering the chemistry Nyquist and Franzen had in the preseason) and leaving Hudler with Fil and Zetterberg

I agree that Nyquist should stay with the big club. But come playoff time I think the Helm injury really stings because now the Wings are short on centres. Once Franzen returns it would be more ideal to take Emmerton out of the line up in order to keep Nyquist in but then there is no fourth line centre. It would be nice (and potentially realistic) to see:

Franzen - Datsyuk - Nyquist
Filppula - Zetterberg - Hudler
Cleary - Abdelkader - Bertuzzi
Miller - Emmerton - Holmstrom/Mursak

That's where it's annoying because obviously I'd like Mursak to continue playing but I do also think Holmstrom will be valuable in the playoffs.


Swap Cleary and Miller. Cleary's hurt and Miller has been extremely impressive for most of the season. No way do I diminish his ice time with how well he's played. When Helm get's back swap him with Abby and move Abby in for Emmerton and there you go.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I agree. Miller has been awesome this year, he has 14 goals (?) and plays limited minutes, and plays with different linemates throughout the entire season.

Nyquiest weighs more than 180 lbs. Most things I have seen show him at 185!

Get me a real fourth line Kenny!

love nyquist but if holland sent smith down you have to expect that when franzen is back he'll send nyquist back too.... :(

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I remember a few months ago someone posted a link from TSN that said the Wings don't have a replacement for Datsyuk/Zetterberg/Franzen yet, unlike 2002 and 2003 when Datsyuk and Zetterberg were starting out with Shanahan and Yzerman on the decline. I think we've got our replacement now, and Datsyuk is only 33, and Zetterberg 31... We're ahead of schedule too, because Shanny and Stevie were 34 and 37 in Zetterberg's rookie year.

The way Nyquist has played and looked so natural and not out of place at all on a scoring line kind of reminds me of the way Zetterberg's career began when he started out on the Shanahan-Fedorov-Zetterberg line.

Miller's a big guy and would probably have to use it more at center I imagine. Could do well.

And as people have mentioned, I agree that Nyquist should be played with top line guys in the way that both Zetterberg and Datsyuk did in their rookie years. Certain players, like say Helm and Abby for arguments sake, grow by working with each other and almost bouncing off one another - kind of thinking about the chemistry that Drapes and Maltby had for all those years - whereas a player like Nyquist can grow to be like Z or Dats and be a top line guy who can really play with anyone, and can adapt a game to yield the best results. I say let the boy run around and have some fun :)

I hope Babcock keeps Franzen on a short leash and switches him out with Nyquist if he shows signs of not competing. Granted, I'd love for The Mule to come out and blast away like in '08 but if he doesn't, he might need to be demoted for a kid who has earned a top six spot.

I'd rather Nyquist play with Z/Flip he just seemed like he clicked a bit more. Plus Datsyuk can get any of Bert/Mule/Hudler because he'sf****** DATSYUK. But doesn't it feel great to question where one of our prospects should play on the top 2 lines?

There's no way in hell Babs is touching the Z-Fil-Hud line right now. They're firing on all cylinders and are literally a threat to score every single time they're on the ice. The chemistry that line is showing right now hasn't been seen in Detroit since the hay-days of the ZDH line. The way they hold on to the puck and force the opposition to chase them around their own zone is mesmerizing.

Like you said, Dats can get anyone going...so let him work a line with Bert, Mule and Nyqvist rotating.

....and Yes, Nyqvist and Mursak are first two kids I've been this excited about in a very long time. I truly believe we've finally found some young kids that will be game changers in a few years.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Ansar saying Franzen says he will play tmr. Franzen sounds like he enjoys being his own doctor?
