Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen
Tatar - Datsyuk - Helm
Jurco - Sheahan - Weiss
Miller - Glendening - Andersson
Babcock is getting closer to what I have been wanting to see all year... Doubt it'll ever get there though...
Switch Helm and Jurco, plug in Abdelkader for Andersson when he is healthy... Perfect!
And then, when you've finished that, swap Helm with Abby, and Abby with Franzen? Perfect.
But in all seriousness, I really don't care how the lines look as long as we keep scoring goals. I know that Babs and everyone else wants to get back to our good old defensive ways. But in the last 8 games we've averaged almost four goals a game and won six times (including our best streak of the season, 4 in a row). Compare that to the first 8 games where we played stingy defense and barely scored two goals a game (4-4 record) and I'm not sure why anybody is clamoring for a return to the old. Fact is, we're a better team when we're more opened up offensively. And I'd gladly drop two games out of every eight if it means we'll score almost 4 a night doing it.
