I want the Wings to win, if players on the Wings have individual success because of it, great. But my main priority is to see the Wings win at any cost.

I'd also wager that Datsyuk has no problem with Cleary and Abdelkader on his line, Babcock has mentioned on several occasions that Datsyuk requests to play with certain players (Filppula, Holmstrom) - so if Pavel really had a problem with them on his line he'd say something. Obviously it's the coaches job to make the lines be the best they can be on paper, but I don't think Pavel is complaining and Babcock is ignoring. And to be clear, just because Pavel may not be complaining doesn't mean that line is the right decision, I think it's the wrong decision.

And just so everyone knows, posting the same thing in every single thread is considered spam - so let's try and expand our topics of conversations. We get it, Cleary and Abdelkader sucks, we get it, Lashoff doesn't deserve to be in the NHL - no need to spam every thread.
Thanks for the "how to be a Heaton-style hockey fan"

You can tell a lot by the way Pavel is playing. He's frustrated with that line. He's trying to do everything himself.

He'd be crazy to trust these incompetents out there. Guys like Abdelkader have no clue. They dump it out. And when they don't...bad things happen-like last game.

Have you ever played hockey with linemates who were either way better than you or way worse than you?

As for your comment about spam--I hope that goes for apologist opinions too.
