Abdelkader is a center who also plays wing

 

Babcock said long ago that he wants ABBY on the wing.

I'm afraid Bertuzzi will sit, even though he provided much needed puck control and was dangerous around the net.  He just naturally gravitated there.  I'd like to see a fourth line of Bertuzzi-Emmerton-Eaves, leave the third line intact and put Abdelkader on the top line, and run with a second line of Filppula-Franzen-Samuellson.

I don't see Bert sitting, especially after he's been playing the past 2 games. I would say that Sammy sits, or Emmerton as others have stated (very unlikely though). Although Sammy scored last game, Babcock told him to be Abby in Game 5. He stated that although net front presence wasn't Sammy's game, if he was going to play on a line with Pasha and Zett, he was going to have to play that role. Game 5 he didn't really improve after Babs bitched about it. Because of that, I see Abby taking Sammy's spot. No other line-up changes.

Despite Sammy scoring, I think he sits. It would be a mistake to not have Abby on the top line. Sammy just a further liability when not paired with Dats and Hank.

 

I'm really not sure actually, will be anxious to see what happens.

Per Khan, looks like Bert and Sammy are on the 4th line with Cory and Patty is out tonight.

Emdog should be out because everyone else brings something more to the table (I got nothing against him, I like him) but he seems to have a spot set in stone.

Nice, a little old and slow but I'd rather have vets in a do or die game. I don't imagine they'll stay on the same line all night.

In what universe would we have ever imagined this to be an acceptable statement?  Things are getting crazy!

Bert has been amzing on the 4th line.  He as given us real depth and made that line really dangerous.  Really, we out match the Ducks on every line except the Getzlaf line (which is equal to the pav line). 
 
Move Bert up to the Filpula line, keep Sammi on the first, and put Abby on the 3rd and take out Emmerton.


Last game, our 4th line was HORRIBLE. The ducks dominated play and cycled everytime Bertuzzi was out there. You see something completely different than me. I think its more Eaves than Bertuzzi, but that 4th line was crap last game. Hope Eaves is out.

That 4th line circa (last week of reg season ) would be fun to see again.
