LGW! Get back into the swing of things. Need to win this back-to-back as both of the teams are in the playoff hunt with us. Is Sproul playing? Who is out if he is?

If Franzen is cleared they'll be one over limit believe. Will need to send down a player. Maybe Sproul, who it appears isn't in tonight.

@LavoieRenaud: Carey Price out for the next 2 games. Re-injured himself during the Olympics. Dustin Tokarski recalled by the Canadiens.

Holland says Datsyuk and Franzen are in tonite given no setbacks during morning skate


Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 9m

Lines at skate at Bell Centre: Franzen-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi, Abdelkader-Helm-Alfredsson, Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco, Miller-Andersson-Nyquist.

 

Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 8m

Looks like Eaves, Cleary and Glendening are out based in how they're skating but that's not confirmed.

 

Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 5m

Defense pairs are Ericsson-Kronwall, Quincey-DeKeyser, Lashoff-Smith.

 

 

Nyquist on the fourth line?  What the?

Mule and pav both in, good for us.

Price out, good for us.

 

 

Nyq on the fourth line?! swap he and bert and I like it a lot more.

or this: mule-pav-abby, nyq-helm-alfie

either way, I'm sure babs does the line shuffle all night long.

 

 

 

& it's time to start stringing together some wins.. what better way to start than against a division playoff contender.

Why is Bertuzzi playing and why is Nyquist on the 4th line when he was the Wings hottest forward before the break?

Need two points, Babs. That can't be the first line.

Great news! My guess is pavs plays tonight and sits out tomorrow night since it is back to back. Hopefully I'm wrong but either way let's take these two points! Go wings! :)

With this lineup I would have liked to see...

 

Tatar - Datsyuk - Jurco

Nyquist - Franzen - Alfredsson

Sheahan - Helm - Bertuzzi

Miller - Andersson - Abdelkader

 

With Weiss taking Bertuzzi's spot when he's ready.

I would much rather Alfie plays with pavs then franzen. Franzen seems to play well with helm so I would go.

Nyquist- pavs- Alfie
Franzen - helm Abby
Jurco- sheahan- Tatar

That's a much more rounded top 9

Maybe he thinks Nyquist needs lighter minutes for a game?  After Tatar came back from his dad's funeral, his minutes were cut way down for a game,t hen went back up to the 15-16 minute range.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Unsure about that 1st line. Datsyuk looked good for the most part in the Olympics, but he's certainly not 100% and isn't skating with his usual jump. Franzen hasn't played much in a long time and probably isn't up to speed quite yet. And Bertuzzi is the slowest player in the NHL. 

Could be a line that struggles, though it could also be good if they get the puck under control in the offensive zone. 

 

Nyquist on the 4th line only makes sense because he and Andersson have good chemistry, and that line would be too slow if you put Bert on it. 3rd obviously should stay together and Abby-Helm-Alfie have been good in the past. 

 

Anyway, I'm hyped to start things up again. Right back to must-win games. Hopefully with the Olympics over guys like Howard, Kronwall and Ericsson can be 100% focused because we need them to be better and more consistant than they've been over the last month or two. 

 

edit: as for Sproul, I don't think we should throw him in right now. It's the first game back and you don't want to be messing too much with the lineup. Sproul's defensive game still needs a lot of work from what I've read, so I feel like we should bring up Almqvist if we want a d-man that can give us more offense.

Yes. Now the real hockey begins. Let's be the hottest team after the Olympic break, turn some heads and give the Eastern Conference a scare starting tonight.

Trying to be optimistic here but I can't disagree with your statement. Bertuzzi shouldn't even be in.

Jesus what a mess those lines are.  Wouldn't it be nice to be in a situation where just once we knew what our lines were largely going to look like for a prolonged period of time.  Like, the lines would be set and if individual players were injured the only question would be which players would step in for the injured guy...not how the injury would affect all four of our lines, plus our scratches, plus who plays in what  positions.  Ugh.  Soooooo old. 


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."

A healthy squad representing our Wings seems to be a pipe dream. I remember when we were relatively healthy in November and we smoked the Isles and Bruins and I thought we were starting to come around and click. This stuff really is getting old.
