I agree in keeping that new kid line together, they always seem to make things happen. I want so badly to love glendening but him on the same line as abs might be a line that will rarely score.
We aren't putting them on the ice to score. We would already have three scoring lines. They are there to shut down people and kill penalties. A line of Abelkader,Helm,Glendening would be as close as we could currently get to the "Grind Line" of old.
Find ways to win, every point is huge right now and that is the kind of game that could fire up a win streak.
Nyquist quickly becoming a leader with Datsyuk and Zetterberg out.
100% agree. Very easy to see that the captain has rubbed off on him in a huge way. He is like a mini Z out there. I think one part of his game that goes unnoticed is how rarely he takes penalties. Kid only has 8 penalty minutes in 43 games.
What is it now like 25 points in 20 games? The kid is doing everything he can to carry this team down the stretch.
Good lord this lineup is laughable. Who would've thought at the beginning of the season we could be playing a 3rd and 4th line of
That is... atrocious. I would like to see Smith play wing tonight. Just for fun, because really how much worse can it get? Maybe Mantha's team will crap the bed in the playoffs and we can get him in for a few games of experience before the season is over.
Ferraro will be the 7th Griffin to make his NHL debut this season according to the Wings website.
The kid definitely thinks shoot first. He had probably five shot attempts, but maybe three made on net. Two of them were absolute howitzers during a powerplay. His highlight of the night however was an open ice hip heck against David Perron, I believe. Considering his limited ice time, he made his presence felt.
Thanks! Hopefully he can solidify a spot in the lineup even when Jurco comes back.
