This makes me excited for the prospect of Weiss and Franzen's return. Finally, we can roll three, maybe four really good NHL lines. Haven't been able to do that in years.

That looks good. An alternate option with Z and Dats together might look like this. It all depends on how well Weiss returns. Ideally he can anchor a 2C spot. Matchup nightmares everywhere. Too bad our D is suspect.

 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Franzen

Nyquist - Weiss - Alfredsson

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Abby - Helm - Eaves

Miller/Andersson/Glendening


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Ya this is a very good lineup as well. I really thing that Stephen Weiss is this teams X factor. If he plays like we thought he was going to this forward corps would be lethal

I like helm playing wing in the top 6. If he's not going to play center on on the third line then he is under utilized on the 4th line. That 2nd line is pretty iffy. If Weiss is still terrible after returning from injury then that whole lineup is blown. If were not going to be able to match other teams size in the top 6 then we have to blow by them with crazy speed
Nyquist-Zetterberg-Franzen
Helm-Datsyuk-Alfredsson
Jurco-Sheahan-Tatar
Abby-Glendening-Miller

Am I the only one who thinks it might be a good idea to break up the kid line a little bit? Seems like when they are on ice late in games they always give up goals. I feel like we need someone on that line who is more defensively responsible and has more experience playing in the bigs. Maybe take Jurco off that line and throw Abby or Alfie in there. 

 

Nyquist-Legwand-Franzen

Tatar-Sheahan-Abby

Alfie-Andersson-Jurco

Miller-Glendening-Bert

 

Doesn't look too bad.

Well if you noticed it was actually Franzen who gave the puck away twice in OT. The kid line was the only line going for a while last night. Their chemistry is undeniable. I would have preferred to see them start the OT. Tartar had a ridiculous pass picked off trying to make a dump in which caused the goal. Idk though I would like to see what Alfie would do with Franzen and Legwand, and maybe move Nyquist back with Andersson.


BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know they have great chemistry, but they are lacking in their own zone. Not just last night but going back it seems like while they might always score the big goals, they give up their fair share of them, too. Regardless what we're doing now isn't working. At least not good enough to pull out a W.

Maybe make the Abby/Jurco switch at the beginning of the third if we have a lead...?

IF we make the playoffs and IF we became 100% healthy for Game 1, what would the lineup look like?

 

I would go with this:

 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Franzen

 

Nyquist - Weiss - Alfredsson

 

Tatar - Legwand - Jurco

 

Sheahan - Helm - Abdelkader

 

 

What do you guys think?

and, if i recall correctly, shaehan had his back turned to the shooter on the GWG.. they are still rooks but their chemesty is worth the occational mistakes that come with growing pains. IMO you can't split them up.. especially now.

Currently I would prefer these lines:

 

Franzen - Legwand - Alfie

Nyquist - Anderson - Abby

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Miller - Glendening - Bert

 

I think that first line would mesh pretty well and on the 2nd line Nyquist could a) bring the creatitvity that Andersson and Abby lack and b) profit from playing weaker opposition than he does on the first line. I wouldn't break up the kid line because right now, even taking into account their mistakes, they are the bright spot and an overall plus.
