Nice GDT Flashy (yet again)! Always look forward to seeing what you come up with
Sorry I didn't help you out for the tables, I saw your PM, but completely forgot to reply when I got home from work.

Kronwall - Ericsson
Kindl - Smith
Lashoff - White
Even better, I'd rotate Huskins in for Lashoff who was fine whenever he got a chance.
I'd also like to shake things up with the forward lines (yeah, more likely hell will freeze over, but hear me out):
Filppula - Datsyuk - Brunner
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen
Abdelkader - Andersson - Cleary
Miller - Emmerton - Tootoo
Our depth absolutely sucks, but we need to go all in on the top 6. Babcock might want Nyquist to learn the hard way by grinding in the bottom 6, but I think he'll play well with his countrymen and strive.
Brunner shoots at everything. He gets the puck, he's looking to hit the net. Imagine someone like Datsyuk who could find him anywhere on the ice and Filppula in the supporting role?
You manage with what you have and I think this Abdelkader/Cleary in the top 6 experiment is useless now that we have some bodies back.
This'll be a tough game against Anaheim. They have scoring depth, some good D and a solid goaltending tandem. The Wings have usually played well (not always gotten the results) against good teams, so hopefully that continues.
