I'd love to see that top line stick. I've been wanting to see Tatar - Datsyuk - Jurco for an extended period of time since training camp. Love it.

You don't say.  ;) :lol: :bye:

I think we all knew it would happen when Z got back.

I did.  Once again, just being a jackass.

 

Oh the woes of having depth.

Well, you dweebs will be happy to know that someone thinks Abby and Jurco should both be on the third line :lol:

It's not.  You have to earn your playing time in Detroit.  And Jurco hasn't this year. 

 

But I will say this about Weiss.  With Zetterberg out, and Sheahan up on the second, Weiss has been given the opportunity to play in the middle on the third line, and I've liked how he's looked.  Seems more comfortable, and confident, in the middle than on the boards.  Sheahan has clearly passed him on the depth chart, but I'm not at all worried about Weiss going forward. 

 

Too quick on the post button.

 

Depth is not going to be a problem going into these playoffs, thankfully.

 

Also, anyone that thinks just because we acquired Cole and Zidlicky that they're immediately slotting in on a specific line, displacing this guy or that guy... get real.  All you have to do is look at the last few pages of this topic and see that whatever your expectations are... they're probably not going to met with one fell swoop, one practice session, or a couple games.

Welllllll, I still think Weiss should be playing at 2C, because that's why we acquired him, no? ...but he has neither earned it, nor been afforded the opportunity to prove that he could be our 2C.  So you guys tell me how this Jurco, Pulks, Mantha situations are/could be any different than what typically happens on this team.
