Typically, I would agree with this, but not when the other two players are Z and Dats. The biggest help the third linemate can give them is getting to the net and staying out of the f*cking way. Keeping a player or two away from these guys and screening the goalie is all those two need to put the puck in the net. Z and Dats' linemate solely needs to be hard to move and be able to make a redirect.

And he needs to dig pucks out of the corner, a good pressure forecheck, set some picks... Imho, Abby is an excellent compliment to Dats and Z. Not EVERYONE on the line needs to score a point per game to have a successful line. Like Datsyuk said about Abby, “It’s like there is somebody who needs to pull the piano and somebody needs to play the piano, This is a guy who is one of the guys who pulls the piano.”

DeKeyser plays like he's been in the league for 10 years, absolutely rock solid out there. We're very lucky we got this guy on the roster.

I think of him as a high first-round draft pick. Maybe even a first overall.

I'm not sure what Emmerton is doing at 0:20. Does he have a shank?

I'm not sure but whatever it was he definitely violated Kronner's ass with it.

So I sort of half-interestedly re-watched (NHL Network). Didn't know it was Alfie with the blind man's assist on Z's equalizer. He - Alfie - was so psyched on the bench. It looked like he gave Z a big ol' butt slap, and then he did a super slide to the right on the bench. It was cool to see him so happy.

We were soooo lucky to come out of there with two points. Sooooooo lucky.

It was good play, not luck.

It was both, but heavy on the luck.

Zetterberg's shot deflects right to Abdelkader (I'm sure he planned it that way), and his other shot - while he did hit the spot he was generally aiming for - wouldn't go in for him eight or nine times out of ten. And also, Alfredsson's pass to Zetterberg was borderline blind. And the 'canes had a ton of chances, not all of which didn't go in because "We're just that good."

Point being, ZOMG THE WINGS SUCK. LOOK AT ME, CRYMSON, I'M POINTING AT THE WINGS AND SAYING THEY SUCK. HA HA HA HA.

Found a gif of it.

:lol:

Even funnier when you notice Em looking down a couple times to make sure whatever he's doing... is still being correctly executed.

Maybe he just had a real bad itch under a pad. You know, like when the top of your foot itches and you don't want to take off your shoe to get to it.

I'm surprised Kronner could walk the next day let alone play hockey. Come to think of it, he did have an off game in Boston...

By that logic Emmerton violated the entire team.
