Does anyone know who has the locker next to Z?

 

Considering Z probably has a good 4 years left in him I'm saying out next C will be chosen for the 2019-2020 season.

 

C: Nyquist

A: Dekeyser

A: Abby

 

Nyquist to me is so much like Z in the way he talks and plays the game. Z always looks like a proud dad when Nyquist scores. I feel like he is really being groomed to take over that spot.

I don't think Nastasiuk will get an A that early in his pro career. Figuring he spends two years in GR or so. Same for Larkin. He won't spend much if any time in GR, but I don't see him getting an A as soon as he joins the team.

 

If Abby is still around I could see him getting an A. He has improved, always stays out of trouble and like Dekeyser is a Michigan product. That last spot is wide open to me though. Could be anyone from Mantha to Smith to Abby to Glendening.

What the lines look like now will be different than what the end the season with, imo. I think we'll be hungry for goals and one of Pulks/Mantha will be called up. For now I wanna see something like this..

 

Goose-Z-Franzen

Tats-Pasha-Abby

Jurco-Weiss-Sheahan

Miller-Helm-Glenny

 

Kronner-Dekeyser

Smith-Big E

Quincey-Ouellet 

 

We know that first line is golden.

 

Putting Tats on a line with Datsyuk should force him to not try to do everything himself. I think Abby has deserved come more top 6 minutes with the way he has played thus far. Good ol' piano puller. 

 

Third line intrigues me. I want to see Sheahan on the wing just to see what would happen. He has a good shot. He doesn't get to use it enough though because Tatar hogs the damn puck. Put Weiss in there to see if he can spark the kids or the kids spark him. 

 

Fourth line is lock down. We might get 15 goals out of that line all season but I'm okay with that.

Called the 4-3 OT win... just saying. 

 

 

Another good game from Smith and Dekeyser. Gotta get Kindl off this club.
