#2640398 12/1 GDT : Buffalo Sabres at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Posted by NyquistianDeke on 01 December 2015 - 10:40 AM

Just put Tatar or Nyquist on the 2nd line wing and call it a day

 

They both deserve to be in the top 2 lines. But in reality we have been playing well besides our late game melt downs.  So its hard to want to mix things up.  Especially because the Sheahan-Tatar-Nyquist line has been good

 

But if I had to mix things up - Its moving Nyquist and Tatar up. Moving Abs down and getting Jurco regular minutes. 

 

So my lines which I posted elsewhere would look like

 

Nyquist - Z- Larkin

Tatar- Pavel - Jurco

Pulkinnen - Richards - Helm

Miller - Sheahan - Abs

We are mishandling Jurco.  Let him get a run of games in the top 9 and see how he does.

 

 

Also the 4th line has been surrendering leads so lets put Pulkinnen there,  That makes no sense and makes that line terrible.

I am just not sure I get the complaining and whining about style of play.

 

 

Would it be great to win 5-1 every night? Yes, but what team is doing that?  Generally if you score more goals you are going to give up more goals.

 

Our style is fine, lets be honest we won the game last night in regulation, so the style of play was not the problem.

 

 

Honestly our strategy of play solid defensive puck possession hockey is just fine

 

Because here is the plan:

 

1. Get a goal or 2 at even strength

2. lock the other team down(we have been doing that)

3. Get opportunities for the power play and take advantage

 

The only problem we have right now is #3. If the power play gets any kind of pulse we will be a very solid team. Last night we had a goal taken away from us, and our power play was abysmal.. fix the power play and these close games aren't as close anymore

If I was Babcock and I am not, my lines would be

 

 

Z-Dats-Bert/Abs

Gus-Legwand-Franzen

Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco

Miller-Helm-Abs/Glendening

 

 

This is assuming Alfie is still having back issues

#2444977 3 in a row.... I'll take it!

So the Wings have beaten Philly, Boston, & Columbus.

 

Boston being a heavy weight. But, for a young team trying to figure some things out it's not a bad stretch at all.

 

I like the defense & the powerplay kill. I have litte question they will get the rest going.

 

All in all I'm pretty happy

 

How are the wings a young team?
