Cleary still in the top 6. I have no idea how the coaches can be so blind.

All i want is consistency, energy and a fire to compete out of each player each shift...do the job and fill the role you are being paid to do. This injury stuff has led to a clusterf*** of a roster and season thus far.

Someone already mentioned this but if BAbs gets this team to the playoffs, he should be coach of the yeAr.

Need Helm back so badly. Even moreso than Bert IMO, because he ties the bottom six together, thus keeping the talent in the top two lines. Ehh. Better win tonight boys. LGW!

im not sure aboot that 2nd line. so because cleary and dats scored last game means they be on the same line? hmm..
seems like babcock was doing "lines" when he came up with this lineup   :nhl_crach:  :pokey:

 

sidenote:   is this the GDT for tonight?
usually its up by now on a day the wings play..

if so. im gonna say 4-2 redwings'

I think the reason babs is putting cleary and abby with dats is because he knows dats can make plays happen by himself. He can beat defenders one on one (or one on four occasionally), and doesn't need to rely on his linemates as much.

With datsyuk holding down the second line with two offensive plugs, the other lines are comprised of not cleary and not Abby and are therefore better. Besides, datsyuk is probably the only player who can actually make dan cleary score right now. Zetterberg would not have been able to set up cleary the way datsyuk did on Tuesday. This is my take-it-with-salt analysis to justify that horrid second line.

I feel bad for Datsyuk.

At least Babcock has the sense to play Huskins.

Why isn't Nyquist playing with Datsyuk instead of Cleary and Abdelkader?  

 

Does Babcock think those guys are better top 6 players?


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I guess Babcock thinks that line worked because Pav had one of the most impressive games of his career. I'm not usually in favor of Z and Pavel together, but they might as well be if Abdelkader and Cleary are going to be with Datsyuk instead.

Get Tatar in the top-six or call up Nyquist. Injuries have really hurt the depth, but there's no reason for Cleary and Abdelkader to play in that role.

Huskins is in for Kindl at least. Really need to end this losing streak tonight.

Remember when Kenny was kicking Alex Semin's tires?
 
Cool....

Remember when Kenny got a better and younger player for a fraction of the price?

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".
