According to twitter:

 

D Pairings:

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Quincey - Kindl

DeKeyser - White

 

Lashoff, Colo & Smith scratched... I like Smitty being scratched, a game off for him right now is the right move, he has struggled lately.  A break is needed for him, regroup and get back at it.

 

Khan on twitter also said DD and Quincey paired up on the PK

I agree with Smith... give him a game off and let him regroup. But sitting Carlo is just stupid because he has played very well these past two games. He has been solid defensively (better than most of our Dmen actually) and has been moving the puck and getting shots to the net. Sitting him is a retarded move. 

 

I think Kindl should be sitting. But the main thing is, Babcock cannot continue to make this amount of changes following this game. We need a solidified group of Dmen... 6 regulars so that they can get used to a partner. That is quite clearly a problem with these D pairings... they are always changed therefore they are not used to their partners and therefore more breakdowns happen. So, Babcock needs to make his mind up after this game. 

 

Lastly, in the same article on Mlive, I read Babs plans on starting with his same STUPID forward lines. What the eff needs to happen for him to realize that THOSE LINES SUCK!? There is not another coach in this league that would stick to these lines as long as he has. Last night is a prime example that they need to change. He finally changed them last night in the 3rd and the Wings played significantly better once Pavs and Hank were together... why not start with that tonight for a change?! IF the Wings lose this game because of these dumb lines, Kenny needs to let Babcock know he wants changes, otherwise he will make them himself because it is just silly at this point how hard headed he is.

Great video! Thanks for the post! I can never get enough of that rivalry, the grind line, the Russian 5, we were truly privileged to be wings fans in the 90's


You got that right.

I agree on Smith as much as i like him...but i can't wait to se a pair of him and Dekeyser. There is a future there methinks

Hopefully Datsyuk starts to play like he wants to be here. He's checked out the last few games, completely useless.

Yeah, Datsyuk's useless....  Even when Dats has an average game, it's above average compared to most players in this league.  He can't do it all himself all the time.  If you recall, he got kneed last night and didn't look the same after it IMO.

Hmmm...my prediction?  They'll double team Datsyuk and Zetterberg and effectively shut down our already abhorrent offense.  But they're worse so we'll probably win.  Junk goal by Miller, one by a defenseman not named Kronwall, and a PP goal by whoever. 


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.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

PP goals are good and usually lead to wins.  Unless you collapse against the coyotes for 20 minutes.

I'd check out too if I were getting punished physically each and every night and had zero space to do anything because of non-stop double teams.  Screw it, you're their meal ticket and they won't give you somebody better to play with than Justin f'n Abdelkader and Johan Franzen.

Leaving our second line as what, Flip, Franzen, Cleary?

 

Swap Cleary with Brunner when he's healthy and it's worth a shot.  Nothing else is doing anything.

Knowing Babcock he'll do something asinine like make Hank the center and put Pav on the wing or something like that.
