"Dope" and Emmerton are not compatible in the same sentence.

I disagree. It all depends on the context in which you use the word "dope". For example:

"One must be a dope to think that Emmerton is more than a healthy scratch when the Wings have their full compliment of forwards available."

It works in that context right?

Brunner-Datsyuk-Franzen-Zetterberg-Kronwall  PP line

 

 

2nd PP Line will probably be Bert-Flip-Samuelsson-White-Smith

After tonight I think one thing is obvious. We need to split up Z and Dats. We just can't match up with other teams the way we are set up right now. Now that mursak is down I'd add nyquist to the mix for the time being with bert out.

 

Filppula - Datsyuk - Franzen

Nyquist - Zetterberg - Brunner

Cleary - Helm - Sammy

Miller - Abdelkader - Tootoo

 

I'd even prefer to have eaves out there in place of sammy to be honest but that will never happen.


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

I agree totally! I feel like we need to surround datsyuk and zetterberg with youth, speed , and skill. I'd go with..

Flip- datsyuk- nyquist
Franzen- z- brunner
Tatar- helm- Sammy
Abs- Anderson- eaves

Oh It really is too bad. I just feel if our d- core is gonna be as weak as it is, we mine as well bring in some youth and talent so we have the energy and speed to wear down other teams, so that we are more on the offensive and don't need to play so much in our own end.

f*** this.

Leave the kids in GR. At least they're winning down there.

In fact, send Smith back down there too.

No surround Gus and Tatar around guys like Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Brunner, Filppula, and Helm.  Give them lots of ice and opportunity around these type players and we will become a better team immediately.  We need more team speed, skill, and young enthusiasm.  Please play Nyquist and Tatar Holland, there not even that young and have nothing more to prove in the AHL.

After watching last night, IMO the second line needs more puck control. I would like to see something like this for the forwards when everyone is healthy.

 

Brunner- Z- Cleary

Dats- Flip- Mule

Sammy- Helm- Bert

Tootoo- Abby- Miller/Eaves

Cleary on first line? are you crazy? not only is that just bad in general, did you not see how terrible he was last night?

The top two lines would likely play the same amount of ES time. You can change Cleary with Bert if that pleases you. That line flows with the two skilled players and a corner/net-front man the Wings used with Homer. Further, it gives the third line a scoring threat.

I wouldnt mind, eventually, seeing Datsyuk - Zetterberg - Samuelsson and Franzen - Filppula - Brunner...assuming that Datsyuk and Zetterberg will be kept together for the immediate future.  I think Samuelsson is more the speed of D and Z and that could work well.  A fast second line could be nice as Fil was skating well last night

Watching the past 2 games this is what I would do. It's apparent Z and Brunner have chemistry together, they've been finding each other all game and it just looks natural. Almost euro-twin in their prime days. It's probably eating Pasha apart that his lover has a new lover. Okay, enough with the silly stuff. 

 

Franzen-Hank-Brunner (hank can continue to center the first line, him and brunner work the boards and perimeter while franzen works the crease trying to pull defensemen in close. Both hank and brunner have the capability to shoot from the perimeter, along with pushing within the dirty areas.)

 

Filp-Pasha-Cleary (throw pasha on the 2nd line, he would eat up majority of 2nd line centers easily, him and filp have unreal chemistry and will act as another duo. Cleary can play the net-front presence and he has great hand-eye. During the open practice on Friday he was going 10/10 on deflections from all angles. so once again, this allows 2 players to play the perimeter while one forces play within the slot)

 

Bert-Helmer-Tootoo (whoa! what did I do here? energy frickin line. Helmer playing as the outstanding 3rd line center he is, while bert and tootoo cause havok. they can easily move the puck and become a new grind line for us)

 

Eaves-Abby-Sammy (yes, I just threw sammy on the 4th line but I find him to be more effective here. Abby and Eaves bring a great dimension and Sammy evens it out)

 

Kronner-Lashoff 

White-Smith

Quincey-???? 

 

Basically, one rookie with a veteran side. I absolutely hate the Quincey and Smith pairing, they're both prone to mistakes and neither can pick up the slack for one another. I hate putting Smith in this position, and would much rather him play with White.

Ansar KHAAAAAN!!! is at today's practice, and noticed some jumbling of the lines by Babcock...
 

Babcock has split up Datsyuk and Zetterberg in practice
 
Datsyuk with Bertuzzi and Filppula, Zetterberg with Brunner and Franzen
 
Other lines: Helm with Cleary and Miller; Abdelkader with Tootoo and Eaves. Emmerton looks to be extra forward

On defense it's Kronwall-Lashoff, Quincey-Smith: Huskins-Kindl.

Well, I definitely like these lines better, I'd still switch Flip and Brunner, but these are better.  I don't like Brunner and Z together because they both like to shoot alot, and I don't like Z and Pav together because they are both reluctant to shoot.  But at least there's a big body on each line.  These will perform better, but as I've said in other threads, I think the real cause for the lack of offense is the fact that the forwards are laying back to cover for the terrible defense.  Fix the d, and the offense can get back to doing it's job.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.

And another change, now on the 3/4 lines...

 

 

Change on 3rd and 4th lines; Eaves skating with Helm and Cleary; Miller is with Abdelkader and Tootoo.

Makes sense, Eaves has a little more offensive punch than Miller.
