Absolutely, which is why I said earlier "hopefully Andersson (and Lashoff) remain out". I think Cleary is a huge upgrade over Andersson. Joakim provides nothing in my opinion, he is much like Cory Emmerton was for us for a couple years. Capable of eating minutes in a crunch for the time being but no real future in the NHL.
I disagree 100% that Jurco needs to "get back to banging". He's third on the team in hits, behind our perennial leader, Abdelkader and Glendening. That's pretty damn good for the style he should be playing. That's exactly why he would do so well on Datsyuk's wing. He can bang like Abby does, but has much better hands to finish on all those opportunities.
Jurco is starting to heat up, which is a great time to get him on a scoring line with Datsyuk and Tatar.
Anyway, no worries. The lines are the exact same as last game.
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader
Tatar - Sheahan - Franzen
Helm - Datsyuk - Weiss
Miller - Glendening - Jurco
Kronwall - Ericsson
Quincey - DeKeyser
Ouellet - Kindl
