If it were a "I wish these were the lines", then:

 

Z-Dats-Tuzzi

Alfredo-Weiss-Nyquist

Tatar-Helm-Mule

Tootoo-Andersson-Abdelkader

Miller/Eaves

 

Kronwall-Ericsson

Kindl-DeKeyser

Smith-Q

Lashoff

 

Howard

 

There's something to be said for having 3 scoring lines, and Franzen loves living in the shadows so 3rd line with 2 insanely hard working kids is a good place for him.

Z Dats Abby (Dats and Babs seem to like Abby on this line)

Alfie Weiss Mule 

Tatar Helm Nyquist

Miller Andersson 1 of Bert, Sammy, Eaves, Tootoo

 

Kronner Big Rig

Dekeyser Smith (probably won't happen, but Smith needs a defensive D-man as a partner)

Kindl Quincey

 

Howard

 

Where it gets interesting is the Power plays

 

PP1

Z dats Mule

Kron Alfie

 

PP2??????

Abby Weiss Nyquist? Tatar?

Ericsson Dekeyser? Quincey?

 

I almost think that they may need to take Alfie off the point and play him as a forward and put Z on the second unit, but that second PP is going to be young if they don't?

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

I have been waiting for a lines thread, but i didn't want to be the one who started it. I didn't want to be internet grounded.

 

Here's what I'd like to see...

- I like the way Bert plays with Pav, and i think he has the offensive abilities to hang on a top line still. If hes injured just move Abby up, or plug Sammy in.

- 2nd line looks like a lot of fire power for a 2nd line. Hopefully Franzen steps up, and scores a ton with the new guys this year.

- 3rd line is the same as last year, but we switch Brunner w/ Tatar, and i think tots plays a more agressive/ defensive game then Brunner. This line was pretty good in the playoffs. i think once they get a little time together this group can be a very effective depth scoring threat.

- 4th line is a new version of the grind line. These three guys don't have a ton of scoring touch, but they would get the job done with hard work alone. Not to mention the amount of penalties they would draw. Id really love to see this line happen.


Dekeyser Smith (probably won't happen, but Smith needs a defensive D-man as a partner)

 

 

This is the same thing i was thinking. Deke is a solid defensive defenseman, Smith needs someone like this to partner with so he doesnt get caught pinching.

Am I the only one getting excited every time I see Helm's name on the roster?? I mean, I am uber-excited to see Weiss and Alfredsson play for the Winged Wheel, they're going to kill it; Helm just breathes life into this team. Can't wait to see him in action again!!

Hopefully he will play again. I am as Holland puts it, "cautiously optimistic"

just because people are putting him in there doesn't mean he is back. if you follow the helm thread, theres still mixed messages coming out. of course we all want him back, but i think its important to remain cautiously optimistic.


I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

Tootoo-Andersson-Abby

 

Kronwall-Dekeyser

Kindl-Ericsson

Smith-Quincey

 

Howard

 

I know Abby finally started to play well on the top line. But let's be real, he's def not a top line guy. He should be on an energy/grit line. And even though Big Bert has had some injury issues, his chemistry with Pavel far exceeds Abby's. Hope Babcock goes with these lines.

Abby-Helm-Bert (Hilarity would ensue between whistles.)
Tatar-Andersson-Samuelsson (Kind of seems like more of a 3rd line, but maybe we'll have a 3a, 3b situation.)

Odds of seeing the two Berts on the same line...I guess I'd have a better chance of winning the lotto.  It'd be kinda cool, though.
