I think the slow footed big defensive shut down defenders are a dieing breed in this league

With what we have available, I'd like to see something like this...
 
Zetterberg - Nielsen - Nyquist
Abdelkader - Larkin - Tatar
Mantha - Athanasiou - Vanek
Sheahan - Glendening - Helm
 
DeKeyser - Green
Smith - Sproul
Kronwall - Marchenko
 
Healthy Scratches: Frk, Ericsson, Ouellet
Injured Reserve: Jurco, Pulkkinen
LTIR: Franzen, Vitale
Waived - Miller, Ott, Callahan, Tangradi, Street, Lashoff, Jensen, Coreau, Pasquale
 
... Of course, I see no way this actually happens, but one can dream...


This is actually what I imagine Blashill going with minus E for Sproul and probably Mantha being an injury call up. I think Blashill's strategies and line combos were a mess last year but for most of the year he had the right guys in the lineup

I doubt Ott plays very much and Miller is the perfect extra forward. Only way these guys play a significant amount of games is if theirs injuries or the young guys suck

I think Blashill being in his first year as head coach fell back on Babs philosophies especially when things started to go south for him. Hopefully he finds his own identity that suits the team. I'm expecting him to have a much different approach this year. There's a lot of pressure for a rookie coach to demote long time veterans in his first year especially if they missed the playoffs. He would have taken a lot of heat. Last year was a tough year for the whole team I don't think anybody in the organization was satisfied with their season

Ya this board would hate Ryan if he played for the Wings. Franzen 2.0
