They should just leave Vinny at center.

Its just my opinion in watching hockey games. As the Flyers are constructed the way the defense is, specifically, they are closer to a bottom 3rd team.

They have more Cups! According to the logic on the main boards and Pens fans.

If Cleary scores everyone should feel great shame.

Here is the Red Wings' purported lineup. Johan Franzen is out for at least a week since the concussion symptoms reappeared.

Gustav Nyquist - Joakim Andersson - Justin Abdelkader
Tomas Tatar - Riley Sheahan - Tomas Jurco
Dan Cleary - Darren Helm - Daniel Alfredsson
Drew Miller - Luke Glendening - Patrick Eaves

Niklas Kronwall - Jonathan Ericsson
Kyle Quincey - Danny DeKeyser
Brian Lashoff - Brendan Smith

Jonas Gustavsson
Jimmy Howard

OK since clearly I'm disagreeing with a few of you about the lineup how about I explain what I think it should be and why, so you know where I'm coming from.

10-28-93
Clearly the top line on the team, Giroux and Voracek are great playmakers who need someone to set up since both hesitate to shoot. Schenn has a pretty good shot that he's not able to use very often because he hasn't really been on a line with any playmakers. When playing with Hartnell, Simmonds, or Lecavelier he was the one usually the one in that role. The reason I have him at LW instead of center is because I believe the only way Vinny can become productive again is by going back to center.

19-40-17
The 2nd line, I think, would be the best way to get the most out of both Lecavelier and Hartnell. Hartnell and Simmonds are best when they're fighting along the boards and in front of the net. Lecavelier is best when he can just focus on shooting with Simmonds and Hartnell to bang in the rebounds.

12-14-24
This line is very strong defensively and can certainly generate some offense too. I'd prefer Raffl here instead of Downie because I think he's better defensively, extremely hardworking, far more disciplined, and although he might be a little less skilled offensively.

9-18-76
This line could be OK defensively with a chance to pitch in offensively once in a while.

If we lose to this Red Wings team, I can't wait to see some of those threads on our board. No, Franzen, no Dats, no Zetterberg, shesh.

Geez. The Wings' line up looks awful... bunch of young kids trying to prove their worth, though.

The Red Wings' current top six is basically the top six from the Griffins team that won the AHL championship last season. This was Grand Rapids' top six:

Nyquist - Andersson - Tatar
Jurco - Sheahan - Francis Pare
+Brian Lashoff in the defence.

Pare is playing in the KHL. Abdelkader replaces him and there you have it. I remember how the Red Wings won the Flyers in October after you guys had injuries to Lecavalier, Hartnell and someone else in the previous game. Now the tables are turned, we'll see what kind of a fight our youngsters put up.

With all their injuries, there's no excuse for us to lose this one

Can't wait to see how much interference they get away with

Hartnell's earned another crack at the top line. If you know me, you know how hard that is for me to say.

He did it to me again, even after I repeatedly said it wouldn't happen.

I turn on him, tear into him and say I'd rather see him traded, and he mostly turns it around.

Truth be told, Simmonds has earned it moreso.

Vinny just needs to deal. He's pro athlete. He can play lw if he tries. We have all been wanting some of these lineup changes for some time. Hopefully it translates well

I would have liked to see Schenn on the top line.

I would put Brayden with G and Jake and leave him there for the season, makes so much sense and Vinny sucks at wing.
