It appears Tatar is the odd man out Wednesday. He's been working in and out of the top line with Dastyuk, Zetterberg and Abdelkader.
 
I'm assuming that this thread has become a catch-all for the roster activities taking place between now and Wednesday. In which case, I'm staying on topic here, I hope.


Oh c'mon. What does he have to do to prove he's more valuable then all our bottom six guys?

Tatar scratched while Cleary, Bertuzzi and Samuelsson probably all play?

 

Holland will never embrace a youth movement. It only happened because his hand was forced last season.

I think Babs is the one who determines who's scratched, not Holland.

I just don't understand why these dusters are playing above Tatar and nyquist

True, but it would be easier to play Tatar if Holland didn't keep washed up veterans around.

Someone should get a plush sammy, strap him to a piece of pine and toss it onto the ice Wednesday.  Might as well throw a one-legged cleary out there too.

To be fair, Babcock most certainly played Nyquist instead of Bertuzzi and Samuelson during th playoffs last year. And not just for health reasons. If Nyquist was on the team, instead of GRs, he'd be playing Wednesday.

 

I just don't think Babcock has much love for Tatar. Not yet anyway.

 

Edit: I'd love to see what the lines in practice are looking like for Wednesday's game.

I was going to make a post here earlier today saying that anyone who thinks Tatar is on the same footing as Cleary, Samuelsson, and Bertuzzi in Babcock's (and Holland's) mind hasn't been following this team for very long.

 

Tatar scratched while Cleary, Bertuzzi and Samuelsson probably all play?

Bingo. As I've been saying all along, the "youth movement" is a lie. It was born of necessity, not preference.

I think this is a case of misreading the situation. As the freep writes here:

 

http://www.freep.com...7/1053/sports05

 

Our forward roster stands as:

 

Henrik Zetterberg - Pavel Datsyuk - Justin Abdelkader

Johan Franzen - Stephen Weiss - Daniel Alfredsson

Daniel Cleary - Joakim Andersson - Todd Bertuzzi

Tomas Tatar - Drew Miller - Mikael Samuelsson

 

If Tatar is a scratch, who plays for him? Eaves, Tootoo, and Helm are all injured. Maybe Babs is thinking about making Abby 4th line center and maybe bumping Tatar up to the 1st line.

Bottom 6 is pathetic - no grind and no heart overall. Bert, Sammy, Cleary don't have the wheels to grind down low and get the puck deep. This will end poorly.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Exactly, though I like most of the moves Holland made this offseason.  Unfortunately they're still dealing with the repercussions from his awful moves last year.

I highly, highly, highly, highly, highly, highly, highly doubt Babs is seriously considering bumping Tatar up to the 1st line. But anything's possible, I guess.

Ick, these lines don't look as good as I thought they would.

 

Success hinges on that second line.  The bottom two are pretty blah, especially that third.  It's a bad sign that our "energy line" could consist of one kid with speed and two older guys with no legs.

There had been speculation that Tootoo would be ready for the opener.  Maybe that was why Tatar was not certain whether or not he'd be scratched.

 

Either way, it's the opener so it's exciting, but the lines and scratches will vary throughout the season.

"We like Gus, and he'll be with the team sooner or later," general manager Ken Holland said. "Unfortunately we've got some difficult cap issues and we're going to start out the way we're going to start out, and we'll sort it out as we go."

Well that move was to be expected. 

 

4th Line looks awful especially with Miller as Center and Sammy on the Wing. 

 

3rd Line has some grid at least with Andersson and Bert. That might be the slowest Line ever sent on ice but I liked what I've seen from Bert this preseason. Add Clearys experience and heart to it and they should be fine.

I'd rather have Torontos fourth line than this edition of a fourth line :(

 

I think the DetroitRedWings have given up too soon on Emmerton, sure he wasn't that great but the guy is still young and could improve why does it hurt to have him at a very low salary aav?

Tatar's level of defensive acuity does not suit him for first-line play.
