Nice dive by Kane there.

Nice to hear the Billy Joel, our boys need to rack that up every game. Now win it in regulation, please.

Ok so how many times do we have to listen to Daniels mention Eichel's name?


About as much as an NBC broadcast with Edzo mentioning subtle interference by the Wings?

Here's hoping it's in the context of "Larkin dekes around Eichel and roofs it for his first career NHL hat trick!"

Time to get it back, Let's Go Wings!

Have to think Pulkinnen will be back in on Tuesday.


I see where you are coming from, but I'd give Jurco another game or two. Make Pulkkinen hungrier when he comes back in.

Should have been interference called when they moved disney.com's stick farther away.

Mrazek is looking good thus far. The boys need to give him some run support. Let's Go Wings!

I hope Mrazek goes Belfour on Hooberdoober - every time he's out there, he's in our net... sheesh


He should pimpslap him with the blocker. :)

Marchenko had some nice keep ins that last sequence. Kindl with a nice defensive play afterwards.

Blowing leads like its 2009. The dropping of points to trash teams will come back to bite them. (Carolina anyone?). Last time I take a dump when the game is on, it made the team take a dump.

Cue the Lost Boys. I still believe they'll pull this out. Let's Go Wings.

Larkin from Zetterberg to retake the lead late. Good way to stop the momentum swing. Come out strong in the 4rd and bury them. Let's Go Wings!

After the Gallagher slide tackle on Mrazek was a good goal, this better be. (Yes, I think his injury was karma for his shots at goalies)


Glad to see it stand. Good effort by Green to start the sequence. Sheahan with the second helper.


#2639566 Jurco on Conditioning Assignment in GRs

Posted by TheXym on 26 November 2015 - 03:33 PM

Xym, I agree with everything except I'd switch Larkin and Nyquist. I know people don't want to break up that top line, but I honestly don't think it's really that Zetterberg and Larkin have this great chemistry together, they're just that good. Zetterberg and Nyquist do have great chemistry together, and it seems like Nyquist is always at his best on Hank's line. And really, how can you go wrong with Pav and Larkin on the same line?... I completely agree with that third line of Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco, it was money in the past, no reason to think it wouldn't be again. I'm not in love with Pulkkinen, but there's no denying that he has been producing, so it is tough taking him out. But I don't know how he stays in unless he remains on that second line, you bump Richards down in Sheahan's spot and have a forth line of Sheahan - Helm - Glendening... Either way, a ton of depth, not the worst problem to have...
Helm does create a ton of opportunities for himself which is awesome, but what's the good when he rarely capitalizes on all these chances? Abdelkader had at least 5 breakaway opportunities last season and scored on all of them. For a while there it looked like he couldn't miss... There's no question in my mind that Abby is a better finisher, whether that be on a shot or banging in rebounds. I'm a huge fan of Helm, but I think he should remain in the bottom 6 for now, 4th line if it were up to me...


You make a very compelling case for the Larkin/Nyquist switch. I'm on board with it. I think you work Pulk back in after a couple of games when he is chomping at the bit. Helm is definitely 4th line at this point, IMHO. I'm OK with sitting Miller from the fourth line (as Bill jumps with glee. :) ), as long as his replacement is suited for the fourth line like your option listed for keeping Pulks in. I honestly feel that one of the worst things you can do to a player, especially younger ones, is play them in a role that their game isn't suited for. Jurco on the 4th line under Babcock provides some empirical evidence.

I wouldn't be opposed to a reunion of Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco. They had clicked pretty well earlier. Keep Hank-Abs-Larkin together, Pavel-Richards-Nyquist as the top two lines. Helm is going to be a beast on the fourth line. Let Pulkks sit for a couple of games.

Another solid save by Mrazek. That goalie is quick, fast, hungry, and has a killer instinct like a velociraptor. Jurassic Mrazek is on the job. Feel free to do a photoshop if you have the skills



Let's Go Wings!
