Nashville played a great game. Could have been a lot worse. Looking forward to the next game.


I disagree. We deserved that game

a punch would be fine in my book. but when you grab someones head and push it into the glass its crossing the line.


Ya if thats not a suspension then I'm giving up on the NHL. Huge joke. So inconsistent with penalties. God I'm so frustrated with the bounces and the BS we deserved better tonight! Preds literally had 2 chances in the third, but yet again it seems like every single mistake we make ends up in our net, while we dominate like crazy and there goalie makes miraculous saves. As well as d-men blocking open nets when there not even looking. With that said I loved the Wings game and have ever bit of confidence if the play like they did tonight they will win game 2 and will win this series. (Very happy with Abby and Cleary tonight)

You shouldn't be able to pick #1 2 years in a row or more. I think it's BS that teams get good from consecutive number 1 overall picks (see the penguins).


#2281021 The problem with our bottom six

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 10 April 2012 - 06:04 PM

If Cleary and Helm were healthy, I actually like the 3rd line. They were playing great mid-season, along with Miller.

It's the 4th line that's the problem. That's what has no identity with guys just thrown together.


I've been thinking for a few days that a lineup like this would solveour bottom six and create more balance 1 through 12.

Zetterberg- Datsyuk- Holmstrom
Franzen- Filppula- Bertuzzi
Hudler- Helm- Nyquist
Miller- Abdelkader- Cleary/Conner/Mursak/Sheahan(unlikely)

Im not sure, I like that lineup as it adds more depth and identity to our team. If Homer can play anywhere it's with Pav and Z so I believe in that line to be a dominant 1st line. Second line has question marks because of Mule, but if he's playoff Mule then him and Fil can bring very big contributions (thinking 08). Third line to me is scary with the skill and speed and chances that will be created. Fourth line very solid and very responsible defensively with the ability to chip in offensively.

Maybe this is a bad lineup im not sure, this is just what I would do if I was Mike Babcock




Just imagine a lineup with Eaves back in:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Hudler-Filppula-Franzen
Cleary-Helm-Bertuzzi
Miller-Abdelkader-Eaves

That has some good balance in my eyes. Homer can still be effective on the top line if its creating space for Z and Dats. Every line has an identity.



Awesome lineup. So much identity and purpose to that lineup! I also agree with Homer being able to be affective with the twins. I want that line together.

seriously need Eaves. I have noticed this as the season ended.


So true the guy brought everything to the table. Speed, skill, shot, tenacity, and most importantly HEART! The guy is a warrior and a terrific bottom six forward


#2281005 The problem with our bottom six

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 10 April 2012 - 05:12 PM

I feel a major issue with this team is the way our bottom six is put together. With the bottom six looking something along the lines of;

Miller- Helm/Abby- Cleary
Holmstom- Abby/Emmerton- Nyquist


I feel that this bottom six has absolutely no identity to it. Its just 6 guys thrown together. To me this is a huge issue for us as the NHL is so tight nowadays that a bottom six forward group can make the difference between winning and losing a series.

What are your thoughts on how we should compose our bottom six/ 3rd and 4th lines?

Excited to see Sheahan in the lineup, but why not Tatar the kid deserves it.

#93 needs to sit for a few games. Get #14 back in there. Most of our guys look real bad.


#93 needs to be reemed out publicly!!! Number 14 needs to be up playing a big role

#2268269 Gustav Nyquist, Joakim Andersson called up from GR

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 08 March 2012 - 01:37 PM

Nyquist better be playing on the second line, cause we could sure use his scoring ability right now
