I've liked Bert over the years as much as anyone.. but I'd rather see alfie in and the wings just play their game. Last change at home.should help but we can't let Boston trick us into playing their style of hockey.

          1. When your moves are so amazing and beyond reason, the only way to describe them is "datsyukian."

There is no reason to want Bertuzzi in. He's not physical, he doesn't actually help on the power play, and you know he's a couple stupid penalties waiting to happen. We need goals, Alfredsson is a goal-scorer. He hasn't scored, but neither has anyone else.

 

Glendening is fine. He has one more goal than Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, Franzen, Alfredsson, Helm, Legwand combined..


Don't Toews me, bro!

I don't think any changes need to be made unless they play bad tomorrow night. Last change will help a lot in terms of generating offense.

I get where some of you are coming from with Bertuzzi. The thing I like about Bert is he isn't afraid to get hit and make a play to get the puck out of the zone. Alfie, I hate to say, appears to be scared and will not always get the puck out. Alfie just looks like he is done. 

 

Anderson offers more size then Glendening. I think we need that size. But if only one move is made, than I'd say Bert for Alfie.

I disagree. There is physical size and the way you play. Glendening plays like a much bigger player. Our problem was getting to the front of the net and winning battles along the boards. That is Glendening's game. Keep him in

Abdelkader - Datsyuk - Alfredsson
Nyquist - Legwand - Franzen
Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco
Miller - Helm - Glendening

 

These make so much sense, why can't Babs just answer the fans call? :lol:

Abdelkader - Datsyuk - Alfredsson
Nyquist - Legwand - Franzen
Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco
Miller - Helm - Glendening

 

I like this but because Legwand moves up, I don't like it because Helm is on the 4th line, I think if Bert comes in and Sheahan comes out Helm moves up to the 3rd or take Jurco out and put Sheahan on the wing with Tats and Helm and put Bert with Glen and Miller.  I guess what I'm saying is anyway we can get Legwand and Helm some more ice I would be all for it .

If the Wings use that line as a shut-down line, Helm would see a lot of TOI.

Excellent ideas. We will have an assassin, a warrior, and a slow ogre. Perfect. We won't win any games, but hey you know...

Dressing a guy because he's big is not smart. I do agree with some changes but Grandpa Bert??? Really that's the answer to our problems????

Aside from giving Oullet or Sproul a shot, I'd rather juggle the lines than change the actual lineup.

The Wings only chance to win this series is with speed and not playing into the scrappy bulls***. Andersson and Bert are not the answer.

Lets be real here, Bertuzzi is the worst player on our roster and hopefully never sees any ice time again

 

Any line he plays on will instantly be turning over the puck and getting scored on

 

also:

 

Kindl REALLY needs to go. I find myself yelling at the tv everytime hes on the ice 

 

I really don't see how either sproul or ouellet wouldnt be an upgrade as its impossible to be softer than he is

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Anderson offers more size then Glendening. I think we need that size. But if only one move is made, than I'd say Bert for Alfie.

 

Andersson plays like he's 5'9" 165.  Adding him to try to add anything physical is like throwing a few hundred fleas into your bed to make it more comfortable.  Glendening is one of the few guys they have who doesn't seem to care about how big and mean Boston is, taking him out makes zero sense.  I think they should roll with what they had, but if anyone is pulled, it should really be one of the kids.  They looked lost.


Abdelkader - Datsyuk - Alfredsson

Franzen - Legwand - Nyquist

Jurco - Sheahan - Tatar

Cleary - Helm - McIntyre

 

Who the hell is McIntyre?  And Cleary?  Really?  Are you just seeing if people are paying attention or something?

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 don't think you change a damn thing.  I think Babcock needs to remind the boys that Game 1 went our way and if we play our game,  Game 3 could go the same way.  Don't rock the boat.  Don't make costly mistakes. Play Game 1 again.

Well if we are talking about speed, the kids have that. I think Bert brings more punch than Alfie. Saying you don't like Bert but do like Alfie to me makes no sense. Alfie looks done.
