Kronwall makes mistakes, but let's not worry about his offensive output. He has 5 points in 6 games. That's pretty good for a defenseman. He's still the offensive minded guy he always was.

I understand Hank and Burnner built chemistry during the lock out and obviously Flip and Datsyuk had it working last night but I still think in the long run the lines would be more balanced if Burrner and Flip flipped places

 

I think it would bring slightly more balance throughout the lines, but after last night you can't do it at this point

I agree, I've been saying this for a while around here.  I don't think it's a good idea to have the two guys who lead your team in shots on the same line.

Season is short, so every chemistry build worth its playerweight in gold. And if those Lines produce like yesterday why should you break them ?

Brunner and Z play great together, and it even seems to keep Franzen going, he has been playing fairly well thus far. Not just on the scoresheet but he seems to play harder when he has to compete with a sniper on his line. Datsyuk and flip will be fine, he is a magician and that line will get lots of goals, you can expect between 75-100 goals this season between those lines

You shouldn't which is why I said at this point there is no way you split them up.

 

However I still believe in the long run the balance on the two lines would be better if Flip and Brunner switched places

I wouldn't mind Brendan Smith getting it going offensively.

Why even discuss switching Filp and stunner after our top two lines produced like they did yesterday(and against minny for that matter)? The past couple weeks all we've been complaining about is lack of scoring and to me/at least for now.. It looks like we found some good scoring from our top two line combos. (And against a pretty damn good goalie too.)

Also, I agree that putting mule up with B & Z is making him play harder.. I like that.

For what it's worth, I thought Ericsson looked alright last night.  Big body leaning on guys and except for 1 or 2 jumps up into the play on scoring chances he did just fine staying home.  He did well on the 5-3 PK too.  My favorite was when he pushed Morrow down in front of the net after the whistle when Morrow was jabbing at Jimmy with the puck in his glove.  Just be large around our net Big E!
