That's awesome, drum! I miss being able to watch those now that I'm not in MI. Cheers!

Edit: Also...from Winging it in Motown re: the Isles:

"Calvin de Haan is slotting into the lineup tonight after being recalled from Bridgeport of the AHL. Matt Donovan was sent down in exchange. de Haan is playing in his second career NHL game and has no goals in the NHL so far in his career. "

GOD EFFING DAMMIT


It's official nhl teams read lgw and know if they put a rookie in with no nhl goals they will score on the wings.

Johan Franzen-Henrik Zetterberg-Gustav Nyquist

Justin Abdelkader-Darren Helm-Daniel Alfredsson

Drew Miller- Joakim Andersson-Tomas Tatar

Daniel Cleary-Stephen Weiss-Mikael Samuelsson

Jonathan Ericsson-Niklas Kronwall

Kyle Quincey-Brendan Smith

Brian Lashoff-Jakub Kindl

Jimmy Howard

 

First and foremost I love Babs and I think he's a great coach. But sometimes his line choices are mind-boggling. Tatar on the 3rd line and Abby on the 2nd? How is it not the other way around? How much more does Tatar have to do to prove that he at least deserves a spot over Abby? I just don't understand Babcock's logic sometimes. I will continue to support him, but to me it just doesn't make any sense.

People need to get past the idea of putting your top 6 "skilled guys" in the top 6.  Rarely is this done anymore. 

 

Top three lines should be fairly balanced with a net front presence guy, a puck retrieval guy and a shooter.


"The leader must never close the gap between himself and the group. If he does, he is no longer what he must be. He must walk a tightrope between the consent he must win and the control he must exert."
Vince Lombardi
 
When asked who won, Babcock said, “Well it doesn’t really matter as long as you don’t lose. It’s like going bear hunting, you take a slow guy with you in case the bear is hungry.”

It is not that difficult really. Babcock stresses defensive responsibility and that is not a strength of Tatar. He is prone to turnovers in the offensive zone. I really like how Babcock uses Abdelkader to energize the top 6, a top 6 that has otherwise looked a bit slow and tired aside from Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

Need size and strength on each line. Abby has been great all year. Tatar doesn't match up well against top 6 talent he's best suited for the 3rd line. Good for him and good for the team

It's far from a must win game, but Howard needs to get some mojo back. Gus can't have more wins then Jimmy, just shouldn't happen. He should shut the door tonight and we should win.

Let's Go Wings! I have a feeling Howard is going to play like he has something to prove.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Great shift for the tatar line


We never should've signed Weiss is Babs is gonna play him with Cleary and Samuelsson, it's a waste of his talent. That line just gets trapped in the ozone because Dano and Sammy can barely move.

Hank second in the league in scoring!

 

Sidney who?


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
