waive kindl or lashoff whats the worse that can happen someone picks him? whoopdeedoo i could care less at this point. if someone going to make mistakes i rather it be a kid and one who can make up for his mistake by scoring.
i really liked the tats dats helm line and think tats earned a top 6 spot. in preseason tats showed he can score and create plays against other top players where nyquist wasnt as noticeable.
sitting weiss doesnt make sense. if you want him to get going you need to play him if you want to trade him you have to play him now it would be a real kick in the balls to play nestrasil over weiss if datsyuk doesnt play.
throw him on wing with Z and mule, try to get them all going
on the other hand nyquist hasnt looked too hot throw him against some weaker competition to get his confidence going. nyquist sheehan jurco.
and then you got your grind line with abs glen and miller/andy
i dont believe abs deserves top 6 minutes hes showed it time after time. he hadf****** datsyuk at center and still can barely score. babs has to get it out of his head that they NEED a screen in front of a goalie to score goals. homer was amazing and the best at what he did. there is no one else in the league that will ever be able to do what he did. especially not abby or cleary
i know my lines will never happen. but i think the most important part is to keep the lines together whether they suck or dont. need to build chemistry. you could see in preseason not many players had any chemistry they didnt know where other players were going to be which lead to a lot of turn overs.
Detroit has one very huge advantage over every team in the league and that is coaching. There is no doubt Babcock is the best coach in the league. Look what he's done for the kids this year. Look what he's done without his top goalie his captain, his best player, his best penalty killer, his best goal scorer, for long stretches this year. He should be coach of the year but he won't be. This guys hockey IQ gives the Wings an advantage over whomever they play in the playoffs.
i thought that was going to say...
