Got a big feeling that a lot of people are gonna know who Riley sheahan is after this series! Kid looks to be a perfect playoff player

That's exactly why abdelkader shouldn't be playing with datsyuk

I understand the concern but I would look at it like this - 
 
Zetterberg, Datsyuk and Alfredsson did not play last night... Based on the teams current chemistry, those 3 will become our first line when all are healthy (fingers crossed) during the playoffs.
 
Nyquist - Legwand - Franzen who will be our second line and no longer playing against the toughest pairings/forwards on the opposing team (see Nyquist vs Chara every shift against Boston) which I cannot wait to finally see.
 
Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco will become our third line instead of our second line and wont be counted on to score as much as they currently are - typically this type of exposure are where I believe younger players can really contribute. And finally, the best 4th line in hockey:
 
Abdelkader - Helm - Glendenning/Miller/Andy provides unbelievable speed and 3/4 of our penalty killers. This line can be used on the road as our shutdown line or at home against the other teams 4th (however Babcock sees fit)
 
All in all, you are not disrupting any lines, instead your basically acquiring a 1st line that consists of world class talent, who have made a career out of playing together. Add Alfredsson as a complimentary right handed shot and I honestly don't see how anyone is worrying about compromising the teams current chemistry.


Those are my exact lines right there. I really really hope jurco doesn't come out because that kid line isn't the same when he's not in

Anybody that doesn't want jurco in a playoff lineup is crazy!! Kid completes that line. That line is a mutchup nightmare for any team.

I think having Abby in instead of Bert really helped us with team speed on that line

That's what happens when you have no urgency on a 4 minute powerplay. No killer instinct on this team

If they don't win I don't think they get in.


#2502491 3/27 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs. Red Wings 4

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 27 March 2014 - 09:46 PM

I think personally there's almost no chance jurco starts it'll be another nyquist situation as this year .... Check the lineups we'd have especially if we got weiss and legwand ... Jurco will start at Grand Rapids


And that's the problem right there. That is unacceptable! Best 12 forwards should play. Jurco should be in the lineup and anything less than that is unacceptable. I'm tired of holland screwing up this team and leaving deserving players in the minors due to roster restrictions. Figure it out holland

Also has anybody been noticing for the last 5 or 6 games that guys are falling all the time?? It's like they don't even have sharpened skates

all i know is thank god we have david legwand
 
..LOL.  almost typed that with a straight face.


Ya him and alfy were plain awful. Legwand lost like every faceoff. The fifth goal he lost the faceoff then lost his coverage on the guy that scored. Wish babs would actually call guys out. For alfy wanting to win a cup so badly doesn't really look like he's trying
