I dislike playing the same team twice in a row. I have no stats but the games always seem to be split 1-1, so now with the Wings winning the first one I have little hope for tonight. Hope to be proven wrong as it would be awesome to beat these guys again.

I think Babcock needs to experiment with #93 on the 3rd line and see if Brunner is good with Datsyuk...

Is that useless plug Jordin Tootoo gonna be scratched again tonight? I sure hope so. Especially against a soft team like Anaheim.

Your sarcasm would be more effective if the Wings hadn't just beat the Ducks 5-1 in which Ericsson, Lashoff and Smith got in fights.  :D

 

Admittedly I'm no Tootoo fan though.  He brings energy but is overpaid and a defensive liability.  And his staged fights aren't worth a whole lot to me.

I know. Hopefully, if he is scratched, we continue to prove that we can stick up for ourselves without him in the lineup.

 

Yeah, several of his fights this year have come right off the draw very early in the 1st period. It sends a message and sets a tempo, but I'd rather see things develop from within the context of the game.

 

I just don't think he deserves to be scratched over guys like Emmerton. Emmerton has proven himself to be a defensive liability at times, also.

Franzen being back is what has made that line work. He does what Cleary couldn't and pulls defenders away from Datsyuk, after that last game Babcock would be crazy to change that line.

 

I'd like to see Brunner with Nyquist until the Datsyuk, Abby and Franzen line cools off.

 

I think the idea behind moving Brunner down was to get him away from Perry, Ryan and Getzlaf and get him some easier match-ups defensively.

If Tootoo could play center I think he'd be playing over Emmerton.

 

I'd probably scratch Eaves tonight in place of Tootoo just because I expect a rough game and Eaves is playing with a full shield,

I agree with the idea of Brunner being moved down to get him away from Perry, Ryan, and Getzlaf. It also puts a decent scoring threat on three lines.

I like your idea of Nyquist and Brunner together. If they click, imagine if they are paired with Helm?

That would be one hell of a 3rd line, a sniper, a set-up guy and a worker to get the puck back to them. With all 3 possessing great speed. They may not be the best defensively, but they should be more than good enough in their own end to handle the 3rd and 4th line of anyone we'll face.

Helene St. James ‏@HeleneStJames: Damien Brunner a healthy scratch for #RedWings today against Ducks. Jordin Tootoo returns to lineup. Brunner hasn't scored last 12 games.

Yep. They may also draw some attention from the opposition's better D-men which could open space for the top lines.

I had to leave early for work the last game, but I'm off tonight.  Hopefully the Red Wings aren't.

 

Go Wings.  Win big and make up for me having to miss the fights last game.

I agree with the move. I have a feeling Tootoo will be important tonight. Plus, it may make Brunner hungrier (I also think he's hit a bit of a wall so the rest may help for the long haul).

How's this for a prediction?

 

Wings win 29-0 with 22 fights in honour of the LGW birthday boys.

 

I'm all for it.

Wow. Only agree with the Brunner scratch if it's because he needs the rest. If it's for s***ty play, then I guess my definition of s***ty play and the coaching staff's are drastically different.

Well, I missed the last one with Apple Fritters' hat trick. So this one better be worth the price of admission for me. ;)

My sentiments exactly. He's been playing well imo. But I guess he's not really used to playing this many games in a season so for that reason I have no problem with him sitting out a game. Maybe he can get back to his goalscoring ways after getting a breather.

As much as everyone is making about Brunner not scoring in the past 12 games, its not like he's not getting assists.

 

The longest he's gone all season without a pt is 3 games. Offensively he's probably been the most consistent player on the team.
