Sammy scratched

Don't agree with that but hey ho Cleary scored a goal so Babs has a reason to keep him in the line up for another month or so.

The forward lines are just so meh to look at and they play like they look.

1st line has no speed, 2nd line has no chemistry, 3rd will more than likely be the best line by far, 4th line is just scraps.

For some reason anywhere u put weiss he makes the line worse. Really needs to pull his head out of his ass before hes banished to the 4th line for good when helmer gets back.

Also this just in: Jimmy starts tomorrow at Florida and Helms gear is packed for the trip, making him questionable for tuesday.

If Jimmy has another game letting in 4 or 5 goals, then he needs to sit out a good week or so and just let Monster play during that time. I suspect Jimmy will have a good game tomorrow night, but in the event that he doesn't, we need to roll with Monster.

Also, I HATE it when Franzen plays with Pavel. I would really like to see:

Nyquist- Datsyuk- Alfie

Franzen- Weiss- Tatar

Abby-Anderson-Bert (not the greatest 3rd line, but they can be decent enough until we get the regulars all back)

Id like to see weiss-datsyuk-alfie while were still missing Helm/Z. Might as well try n get him going with 2 great players now bcuz if he still sucks when the games start to really matter he'll get buried on the 4th line. If you cant produce with 2 of the greatest players of all time then just go home.

Weiss-Dats-Alfie

Nyquist-Franzen-Tatar

Abby-Andy-Bert

Miller-Emdog-Sammy/Cleary

Just until helm gets back in 5 games and everything changes again and weiss moves another spot down the depth chart.

Weiss did not play well on the wing. He's having enough trouble with positioning - I think we should keep him at his natural postion of center.

This is entirely too true, i forgot how much he looked like a center on the wing.

Gosh I want to get healthy cause I really want to see:

Bert DAT tat

Franzina z Nyquist

Weiss helm Alfie

Then Anderson at center with 2 random wingers of the day.

Given the crap we have on our team I'm convinced this is the best we got top to bottom.

I'm not convinced.

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Bert

Franzen-Helm-Nyquist

Alfredsson-Andersson-Tatar

Miller-Weiss-Abdelkader

If Weiss gets his head out of his bottom we could switch him and Helm and have a fantastic 4th line and still hopefully a working 2nd line. Not a huge fan of Bert but if he plays he needs both Z and D with him to be good.

Bert's a fourth liner PP specialist. I'm sick of him dragging down our top 6

Miller-Andersson-Bertuzzi big bodies that can grind teams down. Pretty slow though. Bert needs to adapt to this role and be effective or he can retire. He's a good guy to have on the roster that would be a fun fourth line

Andersson has been useless anytime he's not playing with speedy wingers like Nyquist/Tatar.

Bertuzzi has been useless anytime he hasn't played with Datsyuk+Z.

Those two aren't going to grind anyone down because they'll be two-three steps behind everyone all the time.

When everyones healthy:

Best possible lineup IMHO

Z-Dats-Alfie

Nyq-Weiss-Franzen

Abby-helm-Tats

Miller-Andy-Bert

1st line is more skilled than any other in the league. 2nd has great scoring (if weiss gets going). 3rd is too much speed to handle. 4th is honestly not bad considering its a 4th line.

At their ages over toews Sharpe and hossa? No.

Actually he is our best or second best faceoff guy I believe? I thought he is at like 68% or something I could be wrong but I thought they said that bin the last broadcast. I'm kind of interested if its accurate.

But the eyeball test...I'm sick of being on the pp in the opposing zone and losing the faceoff(franzen) then they ice they puck. I remember it happened two nor three times on one pp alone last game. So he might be worth putting out there just to win face offs then change...or go to front of net.

Ehh agree to disagree, i think our 3 are better defensively. If it those 2 lines played eachother i think ours would have the edge.

Toews and Sharp are at best the 4th and 5th most skilled in that group so...

Do you think Sproul should be called up yet or is it too soon? This article says he should get the call, but I'm not sure we need him here right now. http://hockeyphenoms.blogspot.com/

The real issue is our cap. Issues. And given the fact we have a bunch of d all ready. Ideally I want to keep him with oullete until they both can be up together hopefully the year after next. Maybe next if we see Quincey and kindl go.

With everyone healthy I would like to see...

Tatar - Datsyuk - Franzen
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Alfredsson
Weiss - Helm - Bertuzzi
Abdelkader - Andersson - Miller

Kronwall - Ericsson
DeKeyser - Smith
Quincey - Kindl

Weiss doesn't fit anywhere on this team. He really should be a center but with everybody healthy he's our 4th best center. I don't usually like front loading the top line but just for the sake of putting everybody in a place to succeed I would go with this

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Franzen

Nyquist-Helm-Alfredsson

Tatar-Weisse-Bertuzzi

Miller-Andersson-Andelkader
