Driving home from Raleigh after seeing Seger in PNC. Which by the way there were a TON Wings Jerseys in attendance. Got to talk to a family wearing Ferris State, Griffins and Wings jerseys but I digress.

 

What do you do if you are Babs?

 

Keep riding the horses that got you into the playoffs?

 

Or do you take the chance and put Bert and Sammy in? Personally I think he should let it ride as making the playoffs after all the injuries is quite an accomplishment. As we all know Danny C will NOT be sat down it would be Gus or Eaves for Bert.

As much as I want to see Bertuzzi, I say leave him out until we struggle a game. The team is clicking right now and there's no reason to mess with it.

There probably won't be any lineup changes. Which should be the case.

Bert is a big body. I'm sure we will see him soon. I hope he is ready. You know the ducks are going to be playing him rough. I don't know who I'd sit to get him. Going in I don't think you change anything. I think #22 is going to be valuable in this seires. I like our 3rd/4th lines right now.

No lineup changes right now would be the smart thing.

As much as I would to see Bertuzzi in I think Babs should stick to the current winning recipe until a change is warranted... Berts been out all season and would be getting up to game speed in playoff games, just doesnt sound like a good idea.

 

Keep Sammy on the shelf as long as possible.... his sore pectoralus might aggrevate itself if he gets off the shelf!

The current lineup has earned their rightful spot to be in G1. Do not change a thing.

Besides, that's what G2 is for.

Babs has never liked to change a winning lineup in the playoffs, so after the last week where everyone turned up there won't be any changes. I would think it would be hard to swap in some cold guys to improve the lineup. Especially the older guys like Bert and Sammy, if Helm were fit then he's an energy guy and may have had a chance but I wouldn't any rash changes to lineup in first few games of the series.

If we lose, I would have changed the lines. If we win, Babcock made the right choice that I would have made too.

As much as I want to see Bert back, there is no reason for Babcock to make any lineup changes, especially since the team as a whole has been playing so well. As for Samuelsson, I would only put him in if someone gets hurt and we have no choice, nothing against him but he doesn't add anything we don't already have. I'll be interested to see who gets black ace call-ups with GR in the playoffs, I'd give Tatar or Sheahan a shot before Sammy, they both play bigger than him anyway.

No. Kindl and dekeyser have arguably been are best pairing down the stretch

I want to see a fourth line of Bertuzzi-Helm-Tootoo. That'd be a grind line all right
