Smitty and Deke are the future of this D corps. Learn to respect it.

Quincey seems to make everyone worse, smith has played better without Quincey, hopefully babs realizes this and scratches Quincey when smith returns and never plays them together again. I know it's a pipe dream though

@AnsarKhanMLive: Update from Wings practice, with injury report and lines. http://t.co/x8d3vpnK5d

Sounds like Turd Ferguson has started to gain some insight...

Bonus points for saying that Kronner has "good gap."

Kronwall-Dekeseyer
Ericsson-Smith

Should be the top 4. Those guys can eat up the majority of the minutes and let Kindl and Quincey get easy minutes. I know Ericsson just got back from injury but since his return him and Kronwall don't seem to look as good as Kronwall with DD

All I know is it better be Quincey's last season in Detroit

I'm still trying to figure out why Quincey was not sent down to clear cap space. Cleary and Q sucking air with the Griffins would clear almost 5 MILLION and they both suck.

I'm not sure how he'd do, but its worth a shot with 7 d men up.
Especially if alfies out again.

Thanks to be stupid new CBA, you can only burry 1 million at max from the cap space, the other money is used to support .... we all know what. :(

Do you think the owners regret the lockout yet?

I'm interested to see how the transition works tonight with Smith in the lineup again. Maybe he is already much more important for our team than most of us (me included) realize.

If only our 5-6 behind that excellent top 4 was Kindl-Ouellet.  I can't wait for guys to fight to keep their spot from Sproul as well, who is now kicking serious ass in GR.

I take some comfort in the knowledge that our blue line is going to be really, really awesome - in 50 years.

 

DeKeyser. Smith. Almqvist. Ouellet. Sproul. Maybe Marchenko. Hellllzzz yeah.

Much, much better from Smith tonight. He was one of the lone positives for us.

I think he needs power play time, and I think they need to put him in offensive situations to help get him back to where he was a while ago

Backman is going to surprise a lot of people as well.  Easy to forget about when not in Grand Rapids.

I gotta say I had a massive man crush for B.Smith last night. The guy was playing like a stud out there. When he was up and yelling at Neil in the box I had this excitement and emotion inside me that I haven't had in so long since the wings got rid of the enforcer type.  The most coveted players in the league are those that are special talents but can also bring sandpaper. Smith can be a huge guy for us if he brings this level of play every night.


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

Smith has been great since his return. Like really good. Just sucks because it seems whenever a player turns things around another players turns for the worst. Smith was our best defensemen last night. Kronwall and Ericsson haven't been good since E's return and Kindl and Quincey are always terrible
