That's doubtful. Ouellet played the least last night out of all the defencemen. He will be better served playing top minutes in GR.

 

Kronwall  Dekeyser

 

Kindl   Quincey

 

Smith   Lashoff


 

Quincey was the best defenceman on the ice last night.  Seems to be embracing the adversity and increased role quite well.

 

Fine!  But not with Smith :nono:

Damn that's disappointing news...And not so much cause we're losing Ericsson, but because we're gonna have to deal with more Smith. I just hope when Kronner comes back we give the nod to Ouellet over Smith for that last D spot.

 

Smith will be fine.  Just don't pair him with Quincey.

(And here I was just saying that pairing DeKeyser with a good offensive defenseman might be magical.)

 

On the bright side (if you can call it that)...I haven't been overly impressed with Ericsson thus far. He's steady, reliable, a great veteran presence (especially on the PK), but he still makes his fair share of mistakes. And I dunno if we're really gonna miss his size all that much.

 

The Hockey Gods are doing all they can to earn DeKeyser a promotion. Maybe he really impresses on the top pairing and Ericsson returns a second-pairing guy. That might be good for our depth.

 

I'm reaching, I know.

 

Is this a joke? 

 

Big Rig is second on the team in hits (30th among dmen), 5th in +/-, 5th in shot blocking, and he has been using his size a lot more...

This sucks, but at least Kronwall is coming back. I couldn't even imagine having both Kronwall and Ericsson out at the same time.

 

 

Also, getting Dekeyser was a great move for the Wings.

Good thing the doctor did the catching if he had a bum shoulder during the delivery.
