Heres the new line that the wings are skating with today per Khan:

 

Bert-Dat-Flip

Brun-Z-Mule

Cleary-Helm-Miller

Tootoo-Abby-Eaves

 

Kronwall-Lashoff

Q-Smith

Huskins-Kindl

 

In particular the top 2 O lines, and the top D line look really good to me. We needed a big guy mixing in with the top line.

 

Looks much better to me.

 

edit: now khan tweeting also experimenting switching eaves and miller.

 

edit #2:

 

PP1, same as before, Dat, Mule, Z, Brun, Kronwall

PP2, Flip-22-Bert, Smith, Kindl

I'd prefer Mule with Datsyuk and Filpulla, and Bert with Z and Brunner, but it's not a big deal. Just don't think that first line will generate enough shots, as all those guys are pass first. Hopefully that will force Fil or Datsyuk to shoot.

 

Really like having Helm back, not only for him, but I think Abby-Tootoo-Eaves will be a very very good 4th line, all great on the forecheck, and can all score(at least for 4th liners).

I agree, I'd rather see Bert with Z and Brunner. Really good to see Helm back in the line-up. Let's hope he doesn't get injured straight away. :X

I think the Bert-dat combo looks good for now, if only the fact theyve played alot together the last couple years. Mule-Z-Brun looks too be the most offensive of them all. Im loving brunner shooting non-stop these first couple games.

I agree with the thoughts so far, but I think they should switch Flip and Brunner.  Brunner likes to shoot, as does Zetterberg, so I think they should spread them out across the two lines.  However I do like that each line now has a big body on it, say what you want about Bert, but at least he can hang on to the puck in the offensive zone.  Ideally I'd have Brunner-Pav-Franzen/Bert, Flip-Zetterberg-Franzen/Bert, but I can live with what they have here if it turns out to be effective.

Emdog the odd man out. Eaves in. Samuelsson will probably replace Eaves when he comes back.

Not to alarm anyone, but Ansar also tweeted:

 

Filppula has left the ice prior to sprints.

I like that first line. If i remember correctly Bert and Dats had some awesome chemistry last season. I was really worried that they were ganna demote Bertuzzi to a 3rd line role, but with the lack of top 6 talent on the team he'd have to be up there so I'm pretty excited for tomorrows game...well minus the whole no defense thing...

Someone literally called Datsyuk and Zetterberg being broken up after 3 games. Spooky.
