Love these GDTs, thanks to all of y'all who work on these.
Would love a big win here tonight, tired of blowing away leads and giving away points to bad teams.
While, Datsyuk hasn't looked like his prime self this season, I still think he's looked pretty good out there and is getting/generating tons of chances. I wanna see him finally break out this season in tonight's game. Here's a little look at what he can do in a single game against the Canucks (thankfully they won't be in those weird jerseys this time):
Surprised there's so many against him playing for the Wings. He most likely gets sent down when Helm/Datsyuk return, so I don't see why playing top line minutes with Zetterberg would hurt his development in any way whatsoever. If he shows he's not ready, he'll get sent down knowing exactly which areas he needs to improve in. And if he does well, then that's great.
I like the new lines a lot and I love the kids getting some top 6 time. All summer I talked up Jurco and said he'd break out this season. Hasn't quite happened yet, but he has looked a lot better recently and it does seem like he's on the verge of some good things. Hopefully playing with Gus and Z helps to spark all three of them.
If these lines work I wonder if Babs throws Abby on the 4th line when he comes back or if he splits everyone up.
