Preds @ Avs - The I can't believe I shook his friggin' hand edition
 
Playoff time boys

Lemieux still sucks

That series back in the day hooked me on hockey

No more imperial march this year

Lets Go Preds

AtlantaWhaler 04-07-2012 05:56 AM

Home ice would be huge! Continued momentum would be a plus too.

Go Preds!!!

CalleJAMkrok 04-07-2012 06:34 AM

hopefully i can scoop some tickets to this game, but luckily sam bush and jj gray are playing a free show @ keystone, co. Either way should be a great day

edit: wrong thread
1 point today and i am happy

BigFatCat999 04-07-2012 07:55 AM

Don't get hurt. Hopefully we sit most of the team and let guys who have pretty low TOI get some ice time. Hell, suit up Gnash if you can.

if chicago beats detroit I think we see Lindback/Pickard again and McGrattan and Hillen get curtain calls as Preds. Might even see McLellan.

Our lineup will depend on who wins this afternoons game.

If McLellan plays we burn a year of his ELC and you know Poile ain't gonna let that happen.

If Chicago wins, I want to see Wilson and Smith playing top 6 minutes.

cleangene 04-07-2012 09:47 AM

Peks, Captain, and Sutes even make the trip? Even with the possibility of needing a win for home ice, I think just keeping them home (and maybe even Fisherman) should have been highly considered.

RaiderDoug 04-07-2012 09:52 AM

I'll be rocking the yellow..er, gold, in section 124 tonight.

If Detroit get's a point, we better go all out to get that fourth seed.

Detroit's not as invincible as in year's past, but they're still deadly at the Joe. You don't want to start first 2 games there and also have game 7 there if possible.

Detroit can only get 4th if they win and we lose in regulation. We have the tiebreaker.

I am pretty sure we go all out if we need a point to get home ice

Preds Partisan 04-07-2012 10:10 AM

If it's all resolved by game time, I'd sit anybody who needs rest due to injury and Peks, but I'd go with a mostly normal lineup. If this game actually matters, then I play everybody including Peks to keep him sharp and to give the Preds the best chance of securing home ice.

I understand the idea of resting guys, but don't underestimate the value of one last game to "get into playoff mode" because they haven't shown that mindset yet. If too many guys sit out, or there isn't enough focus and intensity to their game tonight, then they will have too many days off between the last game that counted on Thursday and whenever the first playoff game is scheduled to start. They need to be peaking right now more than coasting through tonight's game or resting too many guys or inserting somebody like McCrappan as a "reward" when guys who will be playing in the playoffs need to find their edge right now.

So basically if Detroit loses in any way the game "won't matter"?

TMI 04-07-2012 11:08 AM

I called you "Hoarding Ass" in the last GDT. I guess I'm going to do it again

Hoarding Ass!

From what I have been told by people who should know, Detroit has to lose in regulation for us to clinch 4th. I'm being pretty lazy today, so I haven't looked.

Haven't seen you post here yet, though you have 16 posts. I guess I've just been busy. Welcome aboard!

He has a one year ELC that isn't slide ready due to his age. The 10 game provision is only for 18 or 19 year olds, not players considered 24 years old for purposes of signing an ELC deal. His contract expires at the end of this season and he's an RFA on 1 July.

If DET wins this is a very important game. I think Trotz will have some roster wiggle room obviously, but I highly doubt he's leaving any of the key players at home.

OTL works as well since we have a large ROW advantage. If the Hawks want 5th, they have to win in regulation though.

If Chicago wins and we are set in stone, I hope we play some of our permascratches. Leave in AK, Goose, and Rads so they can get more and more comfortable since they just got here. Otherwise, give the scratches ice time. Maybe try some things that we've been curious about (splitting up Weber and Suter). Depends on what Barry wants to do.

Wilson-Smith-Rads
AK-Legwand-Bourque
Hali-Spaling-Maclellan
Kraken-Gaustad-Yip

Weber-Josi
Suter-Ellis
Hillen-Klein
