I think Babs is going to go with Pav and Hank together to start the regular season. He continues to reference Weiss as the 2nd line centeman, which means Hank will likely play on the 1st line with Pav. 


Hank- Pav- Helm/ Aflie

Franzen- Weiss- Nyquivst

Jurco- Sheahan- Tatar


The Red Wings have a GREAT group of forwards, far better then what people act like. IT is actually hard to come up with lines because there are lots of difference possiilities so I am looking forward to this season.

Someone in the comments section in the link Dirtydangles posted noted that Weiss has looked really good out there so far, despite the stats.


To add to that, Pav did not get any points today either. I guess we should bench him? I don't understand why some Red Wings fans need to be so negative all the time. I am more than willing to give Weiss another chance to prove himself. He is a heck of a player and lets see what he can do healthy this year before we dump him in freakin training camp!

If Helm's injury problems continue I think it will become time to trade him away in some sort of package. I love Helm as much as anyone, but quite frankly I am sick and tired of having him injured all the time. The guy is always hurt.

Last season Howard costed us around 10 games before Jan.1st and then after that he found his game. To add to that, We missed Pav and Hank for half the season, Weiss pretty much the whole season, Helm off and on all year, Franzen was hit or miss, Alfie missed time, Danny D, Smith and Ericsson all missed chunks of time. Going into this season, with a very good schedule that we have, a fresh healthy load, there is NO REASON to think that this team cannot do substantially better than we did last year. I mean for God sake, in March alone, we litererally did not have Pav, Hank, Weiss, Helm, Anderson (5 centerman) hence why we had to trade for Legwand. I would LOVE to see how any other team in the league would fare in that situation. Lets stop being so negative and wait to see what our healthy team can do, with the kids also playing important roles.

In Topic: Alfie wants to play

If Holland was willing to re-sign useless Cleary to another AWFUL contract, then he better be willing to give a contract to Alfie. I will be SHOCKED if he does not bring Alfie back since Alfie said he wants to play. Alfie at 40% is still better then Cleary. Alfie scored 17 goals last season, would have hit 20 had he not missed some games. He was a good leader for the kids while Pav and Hank were both out. He is still extremely effective and is such a smart hockey player that can make our powerplay more lethal then not having him there. I say we bring him back and see what this team can do with a healthy Pav, Hank, Weiss and Aflie.
