Johan Franzen-Stephen Weiss-Justin Abdelkader

Gustav Nyquist-Joakim Andersson-Tomas Tatar

Daniel Cleary-Riley Sheahan-Todd Bertuzzi

Drew Miller-Cory Emmerton-Mikael Samuelsson

 

Kyle Quincey-Brendan Smith

Danny DeKeyser-Xavier Ouellet

Adam Almquist-Brian Lashoff

 

Petr Mrazek (full game)

 

I would call this testing the "Worst Case Injury Scenario" plus it gives us a look at how our younger guys play against a full penguins line up.

 

- Get to see Nyquist and Tatar as a Top 6 against a legit Penguins Top 6. Tatar show!

- Ouellet was raved upon by Babcock and it allows us to determine our first call-up when we get injuries on Defense. I hope its Sproul or Ouellet

- Mrazek should be awesome to see against the Penguins without anything on the line it prepares him for back-up while Gus does Yoga to fix his groin

That bottom 6.....wow.  Talk about spare parts, aside from Sheahan.

According to Khan, these are the lines from today's practice:
 

Zetterberg  Datsyuk  Abdelkader

Franzen  Weiss  Alfredsson

Cleary  Andersson  Bertuzzi

Miller  Emmerton  Samuelsson

 
Nyquist and Tatar wearing gray, so it appears they won't be playing on Friday. ("Youth movement" my ass.) I actually kinda like it because it gives us a little more size and snarl against a Leafs team that will probably do their best to rough us up. No sense subjecting two young studs to that.
 
I really, really, really, really, really hope we don't lose to the Leafs. Ever.




It's back to back games, I imagine Nyquist and Tatar will skate Saturday.

I liked Sheahan's compete level (said in Backcock's voice). Think he can be a player in a year or so.

If he works hard, and keeps at it, and puts one foot in front of the other, I think he could be our go to guy, but he has to want to work hard, and want to compete, and earn his spot. No one is guaranteed a spot on this roster, you have to come in and earn it every day on and off the ice, with or without the puck, or change your last name to cleary

Spare parts? 

 

Huh?

How many times do you see that happen?  Just like the DoG penalty for faceoffs for having 2 guys waived off.  Never ever ever happens, yet guys get waived off constantly, but never on the second time.  Those refs and their face(off)-time


I think your misunderstanding the face off rule... It's two guys getting kicked out consecutively on the same face off... Example: the ref boots the first guy and then boots the guy that replaced him.

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock would like to dress as close to a regular lineup as possible for Friday's preseason home finale against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Joe Louis Arena (7:30 p.m., no TV), but it depends on the health of several players with bumps and bruises.

 

“We’ll come in tomorrow and find out,'' Babcock said. “If we were playing a regular season game I’d assume they were playing.''

Ya, I think that was his point. That's what I took from it also. He's just saying that players always get kicked out all the time but the replacement does not. It's just a way for the refs to get more face time

Uhhh....Since Tatar and Nyquist aren't set to play, does that mean BOTH of them won't start the regular season? 

 

Seriously about to bang my head against the wall.

The good news is it's our regular roster, give or take one or two spots.

 

Any word on the Leafs' lineup? I'm in the mood for a rout, even if I won't be able to watch it because frickin' no one except "Leafs Nation" is carrying the frickin' game. But I digress. No Kessel, right? And is Clarkson already sitting, or does that not start until the regular season?

I was wrong, it's not quite a regular roster. But it's close.

Replacable guys, plugs...   I personally like Tuzzi, but would rather see a guy like Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan or Callahan in that roster spot.
