Nyquist on the 4th line? Lashoff on the 1st pairing? No Tootoo? This should be fun.

P.S. Why does Hiller's GDT pic look like Rocky Dennis?

Thats my fault, I quickly clone stamped out all the bullet holes and I guess I somehow made Hillers Nose wider.

There have been many times this season where I almost used a rocky Dennis picture for Abdelkader.

Interesting. I more or less like the first line. Not sure about the others. Our lines never really seem to click. I'm sure juggling people around so much doesn't help; guys don't get a chance to start meshing. 3rd line was pretty great before Tatar got sent down, unfortunately.

Wish we had someone like Kunitz for Datsyuk to play with.

Got a bad feeling...5-2 loss with a top 6 or a D-man goes down for a while.

I guess with Brunner on the 3rd line with the kids they'll be getting around a 70-80% o-zones start tonight.
Yeah, I don't really mind having Miller up there either, it's just that I think Nyquist would be preferable. Not that I ever expected him to be put there, but at least he shouldn't be rewarded for scoring by being pushed down a line. No way Babcock wastes Cleary's immense talents on the 4th, though, so if you want Miller up, that's the price you have to pay. I don't know about you, but in that trade I'm pulling a Ken Holland.

Not counting Detroit, Anaheim is the only team in western conference that against Miller has never scored. Babs must think he's due.

Weird thing I noted though OT; he's got 7 goals against Nashville in 21 games, lol.

Any other season and Lindholm might already be up in Anaheim. The kid has been very impressive, and if not for his concussion he might have started the year with the Ducks. Obviously, with the Ducks playing as well as they are, there is less reason to bring him up, and it gives Lindholm some time to develop in the AHL.

Detroit is a team that always scares me. They seem to play the Ducks well, no matter what, and at times they seem to find the right chinks in Anaheim's armor.

Wow, come to think of it, Abby does sort of resemble Rocky Dennis. I approve of this idea for a future GDT.

Tootoo has a goal (albeit, disallowed) and an assist the game before and he gets scratched? ARE YOU ****ING KIDDING ME?

How can no one hold him accountable for this?

I don't get it.

Why are we paying $2mil for a fourth liner that the coach won't even play.

Selective accountability. Son of Canada, Daniel Cleary can do no wrong in Babcock's eyes.

Can't score goals? Detroit's solution:

Tootoo scratched, Tatar in the AHL, Nyquist on the 4th line, Cleary and Abby in the top six.

Babcock is a bottom 10 coach in the league. He's just terrible and I don't know how he's accomplished so much. Maybe its just a bunch of luck? Giguere going crazy in the playoffs and coaching a stacked Canada team. Gotta give him credit for the back to back cup finals, but that was still a REALLY good team. I don't know what's his deal, just venting.

If you don't go deep in the playoffs with prime Datsyuk, Zetterberg, a still all-star Lidstrom, Rafalski, Stuart, you're doing something terribly wrong.

Whatdya mean we can't score goals? Hard to score them when the refs wave them off for no good reason.
