First GDT post of the season, glad to finally have the new format finished and ready to post up for you great posters at LGW.
Franzen appears to be fine, just a leg spasm, and likely will play. Monster makes his first appearance of the season. Let's follow up on last night's great performance and trim the leafs in back to back games.
As always, lines are projected as it stands right now at the time I am posting this in the middle of the night. Lines and goalies are subject to change.
I'd assume if Legwand plays he'll be centering the top line, eager to see what he brings to the table.
More importantly, it's Lidstrom night. I'd like to see this GDT remain about the game and the legend that is Nick Lidstrom, and not an extension of the Legwand trade thread with ongoing bashing and complaining about him all game.
Nick is receiving the utmost respect by never having his number worn again in a Wings sweater, and it's well deserved. May #5 hang among the other legends and it be a great and victorious night.
