    Just saw that. A bit surprising to be honest. I thought for sure Babcock would hold him out until Saturday. Iím sure his ice time will start off low and increase gradually though.

    I expect top line with AM34 & PP2... doubt they rock the boat and slide Kadri off right now - 16min & change?

    My guess is that they will actually pull Kadri off of PP1. Nylander is more skilled, and that's why the PP is clicking, so he fits right in. He knows the players (except Tavares - tough life), and should be able to take over Kadri's high-slot role.

    The bigger reason why I think Kadri gets pulled off the PP1 though, is that right now they're using thee centres. Babcock lamented that at the beginning of the season, and it hasn't really been addressed. So after the PP1 unit does its work, he has to toss out the fourth line centre, usually against an offensive line that was rested up. Having 2C and 2W on the PP1 unit gives him a lot more flexibility in terms of line changes around the PP, and it should help the second unit as well.

    Very good point.

    Also, knocking off the rust in a home game vs Detroit is a lot easier than knocking the rust off in Boston. It's not like he's not healthy, so game action is the best way to get back into game shape. That's the way I think Babs is thinking.

    Any chance we see Sparks tonight and keep Andersen fresh for Boston on Saturday?

    Itís about damn time Babcock uses his backup in a non back-to-back situation. Between decisions like this and loading up PP1, heís correcting what fans have complained about last season.

    I mean it makes sense here. No back to backs for a while and Detroit in the weakest opponent in sight on the schedule

    Reverse psychology guys. Babcock clearly reads these forums, I say 0.0001%, he's like "Eff this guy, I'm starting him"

    If you guys haven't seen it yet, check out the capped article by eskimo. It's pretty solid.
    It's an interesting idea that Connor Brown might be a casualty. Babs loves Connor. I wonder if it will come to that. I really think they will try hard to move Marleau. I know Babs loves him too, but he earns a lot more than Connor.

    Damn, I had a feeling I had missed something when doing the armchair GM. I think my math was off because Nylander wasn't technically on the roster at that point but I put him in and didn't change the math in my head. He would be similar to Kapanen in my mind. I don't think he gets moved, just an oversight on my part.
