Red Wings vs Lightning

Sheahan is sick, might not be able to play tomorrow. Andersson was called up prior to the All-Star break, he might slot in

Also, rumours are that a D will be called up in case, especially since it's a back-to-back situation in FLA. Ouellet should be the one that gets called up.

If Sheahan is actually out I'd much rather use Larkin as a 3C, move Nyquist to his spot on the first and put one of Jurco/Pulks on the third...

Blash really seems to be obsessed with putting two struggling forwards back on the same line again...

I know Blash doesn't want to break up that 1st line and I don't blame him. It's been our best line by far, but damn would I like to see Larkin center his own line. Put him with Goose and Tats or mix in Jurco or Pulks.

Tatar and Nyquist just shouldn't be on the same line. They just get pushed around too much.

I guess we will see in this game how we do when we don't have Miller-Glendening playing the shutdown role against their Triplets.

This would make the most logical sense, But then again we're talking Blashill here.

Won't be surprised if Blash thought it would be a great idea to support two struggling forwards with our grind line center.

Where exactly are these other great center options? People make way too many excuses for Tatar and Gus. It is on them to get going.

Shouldn't be too hard to understand my point: Putting them a) on the same line that is
b) centered by a player who's used to do the dirty work on a grind line* won't help "to get them going".

*if Glendening is just a place-holder, nevermind.

Again I ask who are these other great centers we have available to play with one or both of them? Even if you split them, one of the two will be playing on the third line with Glendening or Joker.

Again, it is on Gus and Tatar to get going. Stop blaming their line mates.

I completely agree 100%.

But there are better options down the middle then Glenny. Larkin, Richards, and Helm are better options.

If you stick to the brilliant idea of playing them on the same line again, let Richards center their line at least and call up Tangredi. Problem solved. Magic.

Oh, and I always wondered why Tats and Gus get by far the most hate around here.

I think Luke was a stop gap in order to keep continuity, i assume blash thinks Sheahan will play.

I'm just hoping that time on the beach does wonders for gus and tats, if they can hey going we'll be in really good shape.

Maybe its because they are supposed to be Top 6 wingers but aren't producing like that at all. They are just as inconsistent as Franzen was, maybe even worse.

Why do people get so worked up over our 3rd line center for one game? First of all its not even confirmed. Second of all we are talking about 9ish minutes of even strength ice time here. For perspective that's about 0.18% of the season. Not to mention, Glenny has a history of being very effective against the bolts.

Breath guys.

No they aren't. The only future core players we have are Larkin, Mrazek, and maybe DeKeyser.

Everybody else is complimentary.

Why Anderson? Why not bring up AA or someone with talent?

I'd like to see AA again, but if Sheahan can't play you gotta go with Andy. PK is decimated enough.
