Anything in the 4-4.5M range is perfect, IMO. Fair for him and works for the team. Like others have said, he does a little bit of everything. We don't really have anyone else like him right now.

I'm iffy on the term, though. Given his style of play, I'm concerned about the wear and tear catching up with him. Four years is fine, but getting into that five/six years makes me a little nervous.

The Wheel Deal ‏@Bill_Roose 5m5 minutes ago

Darren Helm said he spoke to Blashill and he's playing tonight in Montreal. Will skate with Miller and Andersson on #RedWings fourth line.


Glendening possibly out?

The Wheel Deal ‏@Bill_Roose 37s38 seconds ago

With Andersson, DeKeyser and Helm making their season debuts for the #RedWings tonight, Ferraro, Jurco and Smith will be healthy scratches.

Actually, I think it just bumps Glendening up to the third line. Not necessarily the lines they'll go with, but Jurco's off the 2nd line, Ferraro's off the 4th:

Jurco, Ferraro

I don't know about this choice I think removing Larkin from the line is a bad move. I think he is warming up and deserves to stay on the line he is heating up the ice and is always there giving 110%. I think it was a bad choice to keep Cleary another year contract renewed, and with all due respect I will say he has been a great help over the years. I just don't see him being key to any success going forward for this team. We have a lot of young guys in their early 20's to mid 20's that are going to be key for the teams success. Cleary/Andersson would be a scratch for me. Keep Larkin where he is unless he isn't living up to the game over the next few months. 

Like LeftWinger said, the post was made on October 4th. In my proposed lineup, Andersson and Cleary were scratches, but only because they hadn't waived Cleary at that point. It seemed as if they were leaning toward sending Larkin to Grand Rapids (in my opinion, anyway). With Franzen out again, I have no issue keeping Larkin with the team - he's certainly shown he can contribute. I still believe they have a few decisions to make when Helm and Datsyuk return, though.

I'd prefer to see Kindl in over Smith, but I'm biased - I've never been a big fan of Smith.

If I'm being as objective as I can, I don't think having one play over the other will make that big of a difference. I think Kindl's done a good job getting back to break up plays, and I think Smith's provided an edge that Kindl doesn't. Both of them still make bone-headed decisions with the puck/have a difficult time getting the puck out of the defensive zone. I'm just happy DeKeyser's coming back ahead of schedule.

So does this mean Jurco and Ferraro will be the scratches? Will Helm be on the 4th line with Glendening and Miller?...



PP Units at practice: Abby-Nyquist-Franzen Zetterberg-Kronwall Tatar-Richards-Sheahan Pulky-Green

No, he's not Ovechkin, but man oh man. Green has a right-handed shooter to pass the puck to on the power play.
