Love that top line. I would love for them to stick together for the season, but we all know too well that Babcock will change it up the first chance he gets.

Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen

Tatar - Datsyuk - Jurco


I LOVED the look of the Tatar-Datsyuk combination last night. I also recall the chemistry that Gus-Z-Mule had last season.

It's just weird to see all the center depth on this team. Weiss as a 3rd liner? What happens to Sheahan? Good problem to have, I guess.

Also, as far as tonight goes, I'm not sure how putting Abs and Porter on his wings is going to help showcase Weiss' apparent improvement/recovery. Sometimes I wonder about Babcock...

I'd love to have those two lines as our 1-2 and then I'd throw out Helm - Weiss - Sheahan as our 3rd and some combination of Miller, Abdelkader, Glendening, Callahan, Cleary as our 4th. If only everyone could stay healthy.

Agree on Babcock. Gets pretty annoying.

Sweet... Quincey-Smith.... ohdear.

I just hope the hawks don't goon it up like the pens last night. They were playing playoff level physicality in preseason and nearly killed Sproul and Datsyuk. Preseason shouldn't be an opportunity to put people out of the regular season. If it was we should just ice a bunch of goons and have them destroy other team's players and who cares if they get suspended because they won't crack our lineup anyways.

Prediction: Quincey and Smith both score hat tricks and Bettman just decides to give them the Stanley Cup and cancel the season.

What will really happen: Quincey and Smith will both be on the ice for all three goals of a Chicago player getting a hat trick.
