I'm okay with Bert as a 4th line grinder.....not a 1st line starter. Makes zero sense.

Our two biggest guys on Datsyuk's wings.... It seems like Babs doesn't think Datsyuk will be effective in the gritty areas tonight.

Ted Kulfan @tkulfan 22m

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?

Yeah that's weird.  Switch him and Tuzzi.  No Cleary in the lineup is nice though.

Holmstrom to this day would still be more effective than half of those guys in the lineup. Can this year be over?

Jesus christ Bert? OMG babs just punch me in the nuts and get it over with. 


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

I think you're exaggerating. Other than Bert on the 1st line that's a good lineup. I think Bert may be getting his last chance here. He's been good with Pavel before, he needs to be again if he wants to play when Weiss returns.

Agreed.  Hopefully Bert's had a good rest.  He even looked good at times earlier this season in a limited role so I'm hoping he can return to that.

Franzen and Bert on the same line scares me. Why not put Franzen with Tatar, they seemed to have good chemistry before Franzen got hurt.

I agree. At times Bert has been quietly effective this year, most prominently on the PP as just a big body screening to goalie. But yea I feel this may be his last go round if he wants to try and stay in the lineup

Except he can't play a 4th line grinder role.  He's better suited to playing with a skilled center.  I'm ok with giving him a shot there (though not with Nyquist on the 4th line) as long as Babcock doesn't elave him there for 2 weeks when it's not working, and as long as Nyquist takes some shifts in Bertuzzi's spot.


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!

I agree, but with the injuries we should be starting our best lineup, and that is for Nyquist to be on the top line. We cannot afford to fall behind in the score with some of the players we are missing and our scoring issues.

It should be:

Gus- Pav- Bert

Franzen- Sheahan- Tatar

Alfie- Helm- Abby

Eaves- Glendening- Miller

With Franzen coming back I think Jurco and Andersson should be scratched not Eaves and Glendening.

Bert sucks...lets put him in as an experiment against a division rival who we are chasing... Do we really need to start out on this foot Babs?

I'm really over Pav playing with Abby, they just don't complement each other well. Plus I don't think he should be playing on the first line.

The line of Mule-Helm-Tatar gave LGW hope earlier in the year when there wasn't much.

Dats likes Abs cause of his forecheck. And his offensive skills keep improving. He's a guy that the other guys want to play with cause his work ethic is contagious.
