- Safe to say Whitney and Yzerman will play together..... just a matter of if Shanny is flanking them or whether Lang will be centering them.
- Same with Hull and Datsyuk, looks like at this point Thomas may be the third on this line, but I don't think he's brought much to the Combo or any line in a while. The grind line will probably be reunited, so Zetterberg could still be inserted to make up the two kids and a goat line.
- Grind line
- This leaves a line with Holmstrom, Lang/Shanny and Thomas/Zetterberg
Hatcher has been playing with Chelios the last couple games, so I think the pairings will be:
I wanted this line put together when the Wings first got Lang.
But Whitney and Yzerman have been lighting it up the last two weeks, First with Williams and the last couple games with Shanny, so I highly doubt Lewis would break up Whitney and Yzerman for the playoffs.
Rivers over Dandenault, Dandenault hasn't played D regularly for awhile.... plus he'll be rusty coming off injury.
