Got waived today per Darren Dreger, is this with a future buyout ahead ($125 waivers) or has he just been on main roster since Olympic break on IR?

In Topic: Sproul and Ouellet recalled from Grand Rapids

As someone who watched a lot of Griffins games and who thinks the world of Sproul I think Marchenko is the best defenceman in our system whose not on the Wings right now.
If Sproul hits his potential I think he's the best of the 3 but right now I'd rank them Marchenko, Ouellet, Sproul.

That's why Marchenko got called up earlier in te year, Babcock and Blashill talk almost every day and Blashill was saying that Marchenko was their best d-man. If his season wasn't over I'm sure he would have been called up.

Not I said the fly.  When Nyquist is on a line with Dats he doesn't seem to produce.  Leave him with Legwand and Franzen and but Dats with Alfie and Abdelkader until Z gets back.  Nothing about Dats and Nyquist playing together thus far has been a success, the only reason everybody likes it is because they're mesmerized by the thought of the two together...regardless of the cold hard reality. 

Exactly! Gus is in awe when he plays with Datsyuk.

In Topic: Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

I think it has to be Kronner, Gus has been incredible and Z would have been MVP if he'd played the whole year, but of all the injuries we had this year, if we lost Kronner for a lengthy period no way we make the playoffs.

In Topic: Round 1 Line Combinations

Hi Guys,
I just wanted to start a thread (apologies if this topic is being talked about in a different one) to discuss line combinations for Round 1 against the Bruins. From everything I have heard, Zetterberg is hopeful for a Game 4/5 return, while Ericsson is looking at the start of Round 2.
Based on the past few games, I have found it toughest to gauge where Babcock is going to put Helm. It seems logical to think that a lot of that will depend on matchups (home/away) but it seems as though him and Legwand are Interchangeable.
Here is my best guess for Games 1-4.
Abdelkader - Datsyuk - Alfredsson
Nyquist - Legwand - Franzen
Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco
Miller - Helm - Glendenning
Kronwall - Smith
Dekesyer - Quincey
Kindl - Lashoff
Let me know what you guys think and how we stack up against Boston

I think these lines are probably best, the way out roster is at the moment having Datsyuk and Nyquist on the same line makes the Chara matchup easy for Julien, by splitting them I think we have more chance of causing them trouble, also think babcock wants them to be kept separate so Gus doesn't feel he has to always give the puck to Pav.
