Shoot them an email, maybe they'll bring you on road games and our PP will start to not be absolutely terrible.

Haha seriously though this game and the Minnesota one we looked like the 2008 team on special teams. I gotta be better than having Renney on the bench

Today, he went the wrong way around the net on the third goal (same way as White) and it cost the team.

Plus -- lots of PP time and not much SH time.
More about the bolded portion, IMO.

Tons of PP = no Lashoff on the ice.

Tons of ES/PK + blowout win = lots of Lashoff on the ice.

Babcock loves the guy, so he's going to keep getting ice time. It is worth noting that he looks like he took him off the top pair, finally. So he's at least sorta paying attention.

I think a better question is, had Babcock finally stopped hating Kindl?

He's only playing because Q is out, once Q is back Kindl will be rotating in and out with Huskins/Lashoff.

He should. Kindl played yet another solid game. I honestly think he's playing just as good as Smith was early.

Huskins played the most

We've been calling for this for a long time now.

Maybe being on the line with Datsyuk works. I would play Tatar with Datsyuk and Cleary, not Abby.

We do not see practices, maybe Lashoff is doing great in the prectices.

Are the Wings' top 6 good now with Datsyuk, Z, Franzen, Brunner, Filppula ... ?

One power forward missing there to be a pretty nice TOP6.

Iginla?
Horton?
Perry?

Kindl is really growing on me. I really like how he carries the puck out of his zone. Behind Kronner and E I think hes our best Dman.

He still looks afraid when taking a hit, he wants to avoid it at all costs, it seems.

Kinda OT since he didn't play but Quincey starting playing better after Smith got hurt. Not saying Smith is the reason for Q's atrociousness the first few games but that pair didn't work and when he gets back they shouldn't be paired together again.

I am not sure how we can get any of those.
I think we should go
Franzen-Z-Brunner
Cleary-D-Tatar (Abdelkader has no business there, Babcock has to give Tatar a chance)

I am not sure I want Smith and Quncey together. Maybe Smith and White.

Yeah, that's fairly close to my take. Kindl's basically Derek Meech at this point. I could see something like:

Kronwall-Ericsson
Lashoff-White
Smith-Huskins

PP
Kronwall
White
Smith

PK
Ericsson
Huskins
Lashoff

Don't both White and Smith play the right side as a general rule?

Smith-Quincey looked horrible at the beginning of the season so I agree that we probably shouldn't head back there.

Mule-Pavs-Cleary
Fil-Z-Brunner
Bert-Andersson-Tatar
Abby-Emmerton-Tootoo

I'd be interested in seeing if Bert could add anything to that Andersson line that is tearing **** up right now. If Bert isn't likely to be back any time soon just call up Sheahan and put him on that line. Check it out, we're rolling with three scoring lines.

You can't send Datsyuk alone on the ice, he has to have 2 linemates.

I thought since Smith is a lefty he could easily play either side.

I really want to see Tatat on Dastsyuk's wing. I've said it now several times in several threads, but I think they could click together and if they do ...

I think Tatar deserves a promotion to Datsyuk line instead one of Abs and Cleary. However, while Helm is injured he gives that 3rd line some flexibility.

I'd like to see Franzen - Datsyuk - Tatar.

Tatar is much better than Cleary at this point and unless Babcock thinks he's better served on the third line for depth purposes, I think he should be in the top six.
