Detroit is basically going to have to hope for a stellar Jimmy Howard performance, bottom 6 chipping in with a goal or two, and/or a perfect game on special teams.
Top EVS points per 60 mins (minimum of 10 games played):

1. Pavs
2. Tatar
3. Filppula
4. Z
5. Brunner
6. Franzen
7. Andersson
8. Eaves
9. Abby
10. Miller
11. Tootoo
12. Emmerton
13. Danny Cleary

Tatar should be in Detroit. Not his fault and probably not Babs' fault he's not here. Since Tatar is in Grand Rapids then Andersson probably deserves the Abby/Cleary/Miller top 6 spot seeing as he's right on the edge of top 6 point production despite getting bottom 6 minutes. Unfortunately we have no centers so he's locked into that 3rd line pivot spot until Helm gets healthy. This is part of the reason why I've been pushing for Riley Sheahan to get a shot in Detroit. I'm sure Babs would put him in the lineup if he could get a call up.

Clearly belongs nowhere near the top 6. He's gotten plenty of ice time and is the absolute worst forward on the squad at generating offense. It's plain as day.
