A healthy Helm is a nice thing. 

A healthy helm is a great thing.
And for everyone saying how much theyre excited for the lines, with Tatar on the first, I have bad news Babcock changes the lines every 5 minutes.
and to the people who are upset with the lines I have great news, babcock changes the lines every 5 minutes.

Ha.
And I've stated this multiple times, I love jurco.
I hope to hell the brass and babs have seen how amazing he's been despite his MINIMAL mistakes, and leave him up permanently.
Kids got drive, and the talent and size to back it up.
He seems perfect for a baptism-by-fire, change of pace from our usual over-ripening.

Edit.
Has anyone bought a jurco jersey yet?

This line up looks great! Hopefully Howie has a good game, he'll probably be riled up from being chosen to represent! LGW

I agree they should switch Tomas and Tomas in those lines, but its still the best forward lineup they've iced in quite some times.

D pairs are per Khan:

Kronner-Smitty
Deke-quincey
Lashoff-Kindl

Interesting to say the least, smitty is not a top d man but him and quinceys inability to play together leaves us with this. Hoping for the best.

I like these pairings. They seem to have a lot more balance in each pairing. Would love to see it like this when E comes back, except move Smith down to play with Deke, and keep the top pairing as it has always been

Little problem with that theory..

 

11/19/13 - In his FIFTH NHL appearance, Marek Mazanec stopped all 27 shots he faced for his first NHL shutout to lead the Nashville Predators to a 2-0 win against the Red Wings.

 

Nothing's a given.

Just an expert tweet on the bleacherreport wings feed stating that "if all goes well for howard tonight, he'll get the start in the WC"

Heres to hoping we stomp the preds.

I honestly think we will win tonight. we have most of our team back, should be able to score 4 and hopefully only give up 1-2. Also Rinne isnt in net so we should be able to captitalize.

We not score, is hard to win. - Pavel Datsyuk #13

There's just no reason for this. C'mon Babs, switch Jurco and Tatar. I'm a fan of Tatar but Jurco's far better in every case!


Jurco hasn't "earned" the top line, Tatar has. Tatar also won the AHL MVP on Jurco's team so I don't where you get this "far better" stuff from.

Bull. Everyone has been wanting Tatar to get a chance with dats. Now he has it and people complain lol. There is no winning. Tatar is more gritty and fights hard every shift to score, he is perfect for Datsyuks wing, I think he will compliment him quite well.

That's actually an intimidating lineup :) looks like an actual nhl team again.

 

As I wrote, I'm a fan because of his agressive style. I also said before, already after his first game in Wings uniform, that this kid plays bigger than he is.

But the thing is that he got the chance to play on our top units and he produced nothin but mistakes. The more icetime he got the more mistakes he made. And not just little things, we talk about huge mistakes that cost us goals, if not games. I agree with you that he should get another chance. But first they need to play this young kid from Grand Rapids. He's nearly perfect in every case. No stupid plays, just little mistakes. No bad shifts. Just one bad pass vs. Florida and I'm sure that's what cost him his place in Pav's line.

He played almost perfect from lets say his 2nd or 3rd shift on. Jurco's able to do everything. He's a very fast skater, he shoots the puck well, he makes sick moves, he wins the board battles, he crashes the net, he's strong on the puck und cycles all around the net until he finds his linemates, he distributes the puck and he's even able to make defensive plays against the puck in the own zone.

So who's then backing Jimmy up?

 

Well it sure sucks for Mrazek not being able to play in the outdoor game because he has to back up Jimmy :/

WIngs score 10 goals, one for each of Dano's busted out teeth. Poor baby!

Poor guy. Glad he isn't missing any time. I thought he has been much better as of late. Can't complain having a player like him in the bottom 6.

When Cleary loses a tooth, an angel gets its Wings.

 

Seriously, OUCH!  I can't even imagine them being half knocked out and the nerves exposed and all that.

Remember Steve Duchesne losing all his front chiclets in the Cup finals playoffs in 2002?  He cleaned up his face shield and was back out for the next shift.  Hockey players are not made of the same stuff as mere mortals...

I got home from work, blew the froth off a couple brews and have been watching episodes 1-3 of the 24/7 series.

As much as everyones seemingly hated it, i really enjoy it. In my few short years as a diehard wings fan, ive never gotten anywhere near as close to the team i love as i have with this series. And ill continue to appreciate it for what it is.

Even being able to watch/get to know the leafs players has gotten them growing on me as a team to follow (that Lupul's pretty damn good!)

Anyways, as the buzz grows along with my anticipation for tonights win, yes calling a WIN, i can only hope the boys carry some sort of momentum into the WC.

Such a good time of the year to be a wings fan.
In the words of literally every player on seemngly every team, "f***IN RIGHT BOYS!" LETS GO WINGS!

Whatevs, I got a really wicked papercut today in the office and it was a doozie.  It smarted for at least two minutes!


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."
